Once out of the hospital, Bentz begins to see Jennifer everywhere. Could she still be alive? But it was Bentz who identified Jennifer's body after her horrible car wreck, and there had been no question in his mind that it was her crumpled form behind the wheel, her clothes, her wedding ring. He's never doubted it - until now. He can't tell his new wife, Olivia, about the sightings or his secret fear that he's losing his mind. But Olivia is also hiding a secret....
When a copy of Jennifer's death certificate arrives in the mail, emblazoned with a red question mark, Bentz follows the postmark trail to Los Angeles, returning to the painful memories he's tried so hard to forget, and straight into a killer's web.
Someone's been waiting patiently, silently. Someone who knows exactly what happened that night 12 years ago and has been anticipating Bentz's every move.
Soon it will be Bentz's turn to suffer for his sins. But he won't be the only one made to pay the ultimate price. For a diabolical killer has now made Olivia the prime target...

I have no idea what the other reviewer is talking about! This book is terrific - I even recommended it to my husband. It keeps your attention, and the best part is it's narrated by two people - a man and a woman. I don't know why more audio books don't do that - it's much more realistic. Anyway, I've listened to 100's of books on Audible - and this one well worthwhile.
I have never read nor listened to a book that was so horribly written. The author obviously never heard of that old "show, don't tell" rule. Each character keeps "thinking" one and the same thought over and over and over and over again, only interrupted by the author stating the same obvious facts, well, over and over again. Great listen for people with severe memory difficulties. I couldn't finish it, but I rest assured that I'll be able to pick up the "narrative" in twenty years again without any problem.
I almost didn't get this book because of some of the negative reviews. I read Lost Souls and thought this book sounded like a great spin off. Then I bought it and I am glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews. If you think the author told you all the details about the characters in Lost Souls you are in for some surprises. I really liked this book. You also don't have to have read Lost Souls to read this book.
I've listened to hundreds of books from Audible over the years and, no matter how good or bad a book, I've rarely taken the time to prepare a review. This book is poorly written and extremely predictable, Plus the narration is amateurish. Save your money and time. Don't buy this book.
This book is so poorly written I cannot finish listening to it. After half an hour, I started jumping chapters to find out if the writing improved. It did not. An endless string of words to fill up pages for scenes and dialogue that desperately need vitality and verisimilitude. And, each scene would be better told with about half of the words.
Internal dialogues a character has with him/herself that are so juvenile and cliched that I expected the characters to off themselves by eating too much peanut butter and jelly.
How this book ever got published in the first place, I cannot imagine. The narrators sound as if they are in a hurry up get to the end of the story. I can understand this as reading the entire manuscript must have been truly painful.
Do yourself a favor, take a pass on this one.
I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't write a review because I never got past chapter 8 of this book. Then for the good of all audible listeners, I took one for the team and wanted to save anyone else from having to do it. This book, the narration of this book, is so completely lackluster, annoying and flat, I felt nauseous when I kept turning it back on. Because I was trying. I really was. Maybe the idea of the story is good. Hence the 2 stars. Didn't want to short change the author if the book got better. My 8 chapters didn't. The 'play' back and forth..yes the woman reads the female parts, the man the male., was horrible. It sounded like a telephone conversation ( some of it was) between 2 incredibly boring ppl. And then when they did decide to get a little more into character, they overacted to the point of nails on a chalk board. I strongly agree with anyone giving this book a bad review. Trust me, I'm trying to save you a credit!
I like listening to series and I believe this is the 4th or 5th book in this series.
The first few I really enjoyed...
The writer must have had writers block because this was way to far fetched and the focus was ridiculous.
I should have payed attention to other reviewers.

This book could easily be made into a drinking game: one slurp for every time the dumb detective runs after "Jennifer" -- you'll be soused in no time at all.
Malice was all I expected it to be! I thought she did a good job on all the characters! Excellent!
The story of Bentz' journey to discover the truth about his "dead wife" is intriguing. Don't understand why the sub plot was included ... Was just left hanging with only the most cursory of explanations in the epilogue...
This was a poor book with a plot so convoluted and strained and yet it was a fairly obvious ending.The most disliked cop and nobody knows why he is disliked by all yet he is helped by people who warn him that leaving his wife to look for an ex-wife is insane and yet he does it anyway and he tries to justify this how? It is thin as plots go; a dash of this and a dash of that to make the pages more. I am angry at myself for wasting money and time. And the voices, they must have been as bored as I. I finished listening to this to proof myself right and to really enjoy a good book afterwards.
