Detective Jason Scarsdale. Being haunted by the loss of his wife I felt for him right away especially since he blames himself. When Jason becomes friendly with co-worker Dani Mueller he doesn’t realize that she has her own hidden secrets which will affect his life more than he could have ever imagined, he has been through so much and yet still there are so many twists and turns...
I thought Bob Dunsworth, the narrators voice was perfect for the story and he bought the characters in this exciting crime thriller alive brilliantly.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this detailed and captivating story, which kept me guessing throughout with its twists and turns.
