Former homicide detective Nicole Foster has hit rock bottom. Driven off the force by her treacherous partner and lover, she's flat broke and struggling with a gambling addiction. All Nicole has left is the dream of a warm bed at a homeless shelter and the haunting memories of three-year-old Kelsey Chase - whose murder case ended her career.
As Nicole obsesses over the old facts, she realizes everything about that case felt off: a disinterested mom, a suicidal pedophile, and too many questions left unanswered. When the little girl's grieving father begs Nicole for help, she's drawn back into the investigation...and given one shot at redemption.
But the deeper Nicole digs, the more evil she uncovers, including betrayals that hit painfully close to home. Will a shocking discovery be the key to finally getting justice for Kelsey and resurrecting her own life?

It had the makings of a good thriller but then the plot got so contorted and confusing that it just doesn't compute. I'm normally a fan of Olsen but this one just doesn't fly.
Yes, if they are anything like this
Yes, this one kept me guessing. I liked that
She brought passion to the story. She didn't just read it, she lived it.
This was a excellent read. I LOVED it. It had me interested from start to finish. As always, I was hoping for a good read but I was so pleasantly surprised at what a great book The Sound of Rain was. Such a great story-line with twist and turns you won't see coming. It's not overdone or cliche like so many other books. Great plot, great characters and well written. If you're a mystery-thriller-suspense fan you really need this book.
Ms Peakes is outstanding.
Mr Olsen has gone in a new direction of his 'mystery/horror' books. Confusing in the ending. Sad for the lead character. Hope this is a bump in the road for what was one of my favorite authors
Mystery, who done it, medical, good YA, I'm in. light romance too. Bring on the gore but leave out the explicit love scenes please.
Best-The twists and turns at the end
Worst-The author should study police procedure
Probably not for the reason I listed as WORST part of the book
I stopped reading this book several times. The authors police investigation was bad writing and in no way believable. I strongly dislike giving a bad review. If you can overlook this part and get through it, the last 1/4 or so is pretty good.
Resides in Elkton, M.D. (but my heart belongs in Upstate, N.Y.)
Constantly being on the edge of my seat.Never knowing what was going to happen next!
I don't know, I hate this question!!!
This is a wasted question!!
The feelings of the different characters of course.
When she talked to Angela at the end.
When the shoebox fell down.
Great read, kept me on the edge of my seat. Likable main character.
Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
I quite enjoyed this book - my first by this author. The narration was great! I loved how there were many twists and it kept me wondering exactly "who did what?!?"
