She only stepped outside for a minute… But a minute was all it took to turn Jean Kingsley’s world upside down - a minute she’d regret for the rest of her life. Stepping into her worst nightmare…Because when she returned, she found an open bedroom window and her three-year-old son, Nathan, gone. The boy would never be seen again. A nightmare that only got worse. A tip eventually leads detectives to their killer, a repeat sex offender, and inside his apartment, a gruesome discovery. A slam-dunk trial sends him off to death row, then several years later, to the electric chair. Case closed. Justice served…or was it?
Now, more than 30 years later, Patrick Bannister unwittingly stumbles across evidence among his dead mother’s belongings. It paints her as the killer and her brother, a wealthy and powerful senator, as the one pulling the strings. What really happened to Nathan Kingsley? There’s a hole in the case a mile wide, and Patrick is determined to close it. But what he doesn’t know is that the closer he moves toward the truth, the more he’s putting his life on the line, that he’s become the hunted.

I had a difficult time finishing this book because, in my opinion, the narrator overacted from beginning to end. Every character had an accent or an unusual speech characteristic. They were so annoying that they distracted from the plot rather than enhanced it. And even the simplest sentences had words that were emphasized by volume or by being dragged out. I don't think people talk that way all the time.
If you enjoy listening to books that are acted rather than read, you may disagree with me.
I found this to be a very good suspense/thriller. Patrick, now a reporter was an abused child, that we become acquainted with throughout the book, since he found evidence of a long ago missing child in his dead mother's belongings. The whole book is trying to solve the mystery of why his mother would be in possession of the medallion worn by the missing child. Patrick puts himself in deeper and deeper danger as he unravels the puzzle.Clues unfold and Patrick's tormented upbringing comes to light, as a killer pursues him.
Avid audible listener!
From my hair standing on end to crying, I went through a whole range of emotions listening to this story. Excellent narration!
I suspected the ending, but kept changing my mind with new facts. Well written!
I highly recommend this audiobook...
The performance of Luke Daniels. He kept me interested
Tame, lacking depth
His voice and modulations
I am surprised this book has been rated so highly. It disappointed from chapter 4 onwards
