Publisher's Summary

A Blast From the Past

Ex-cop, security guard and sometime actor Jack Dwyer feels a familiar buzz when, after fifteen years, he sees Karen Lane, his old high school flame. But things are going so well with his girlfriend Donna, that he's pretty sure Karen is not what he needs right now. Still, he agrees to retrieve a suitcase for her which she'd left with her last lover, Glendon Evans, a psychiatrist.

When Jack goes to Evans's ritzy house, he discovers the doctor out cold. Jack helps him come to, and they talk about the suitcase. Evans says he suspects its contents are important, but the suitcase has disappeared.

Jack must warn Karen, and he knows he'll find her at their high school reunion. But Jack's little trip down memory lane doesn't last long, for murder will prevent one of his classmates from ever leaving the reunion....

    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story a lot, had some twists and turns I didnt see coming. The narrator kept throwing me off, took a whille to become accustomed to his voice and style. Stick with it, the story is well worth it.

    "Another great yarn from Ed Gorman"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Mr. Gorman's writing. It's one of those books that goes by in a flash.


    What does Eddie Frierson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought the book to life. Well done.

    Eddie is an avid listener of all sorts of audio books. He is a voracious reader AND listener. Not just best sellers, he likes to experiment.

    "A GOOD YARN .... :)"

    I really enjoyed this book. Simple and straightforward mystery from Ed Gorman. I enjoyed the narration very much and liked the characterizations and pace. I guessed well but was still surprised by some twists. All in all a great "listen" on the commute. I wish this author and narrator would team up more. :)
