I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!
First, the good. This was a great story, an incredible thriller and a really intense no-that-did-not-just-happen ending. The narration was incredibly well-done and I got completely lost in the story.
Now, the bad. The good guy was such a bad person. The lines blurred. I no longer knew who to root for. What a ride!!
I am 71 year's old I listen to a lot of mysteries I like cute ones I really like the cozy mysteries I like Christmas mysteries and horror
what a twist the book took it was great, payback is great I believe in carmaker I don't want to say too much and give it away but you have to listen to this book it is great absolutely
I love dark gritty thrillers, mystery, psychological, police procedural, and horror with the romance set at a minimum to none.
I loved this story. I was given a copy so I didn't know what to expect as this was my frst time listening to the author and narrator but WOW, so good! It was a refreshing and went in directions I didn't expect. I have bought many audio books that say its for people that liked Gone Girl and everytime I am dissapointed. This book did not compare itself to Gone Girl, I Am. It's not the same story as Gone Girl but it has that kind of vibe yet the story is unique.
I am a hard core listener of mystery thrillers and often times, the stories start to all sound the same. I will remember this book because it is a really unique story. Just when I thought I had it figured out, the story would surprise me and that rarely happens to me.
I would rather not spoil it for others. So many scenes are so deliciously uncomfortable and satisfying. I enjoyed the entire story.
This story has all the things I love to listen to and feel. Surprise, intrigue, nervousness, shock, and satisfaction.
More please from this author! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. Even though I got this one for free, I enjoyed this story so much so I will be happily looking to buy more books from this author.
I enjoyed every minute of this book. I wish I could say I didn't see that coming... there were some surprises and overall kept my interest from start to finish. Fast paced, easy to understand and listen to. Wonderful characters, some you love to hate.

The narrator was excellent. The slightest lilt in her voice for different characters made them believable and not cartoonish.
My most memorable moment was when the killer was revealed. Although I called it early in the book, the reasons were very interesting and unexpected.
Stephanie did a great job with the character voices, but also never left her cadence the same throughout. Each sentence was read stand-alone, and it seemed as if she was truly into the story, which made me that much more interested. Sometimes a continued cadence by a narrator lulls you to sleep - that never happened in this book.
I wanted to feel for Alexander's plight, but I never found him to be a sympathetic character, although I get the feeling I was supposed to feel sorry for him at times.
The middle of the book drags a bit - there is a lot of information that could have been collapsed into shorter chapters (or combined into one chapter). I understand what the author was going for in building the story arc, but the information came so slowly at times that I was ready to get to the climax of the story. Great narration got me through those parts.
A good listen makes for an amazing day!
The exciting story with the complex twists and turns made for a pleasant listen.

The title said it all! Rotten Apple indeed (to the core!) Infidelity and revenge with plot twists galore. The icing on the cake was the engaging narration. I wanted to yell at Alex ....excuse me, Alexander to get over his bad self . Stick with this one to the end (not hard to do!) and you will not be sorry.

Great mystery! Truly inspired narration plus a great story makes this a fantastic listen! Can't wait to download the next in series! - just listen and enjoy.. "Fast-paced plot spiked with unexpected twists and plenty of danger, snappy writing infused with tart wit, and a captivating thriller...
I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily decided to review."
I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a real mystery, with lots of twists and turns. You just never know just who is crazy and what will come next. Has a good bit of pay back in it...Loved it. Narrator does a great job also. I will be looking for another Salnikova book real soon.
The payback is great, the characters are outstanding, and you never know what will happen next. Just when you think you know...Pow. What a book. Loved everything about it.
Stephanie did such a great job on all characters, it is hard to pick just one. Loved to hate ALexander, but Julie was very surprising, and Karen brought up all kinds of responses from me. Such a great job of Narration...Kudos for such a great performance.
Again so many moments and twists and turns, my emotions were in turmoil. LOL. Really got into this book.
If you like mysteries with a lot of twists, turns and surprises...Get this book!
