An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

I started listening to the audio book on Monday evening. I had the intention of listening to it in the evenings before I went to bed. Well, I have not been able to stop listening. Needless to say, I haven't gotten much work done in the last two days. I love this story!

With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.

What would have made The Hunger Fix better?

At the beginning of the book we are told to also buy the actual book. I wish that I had been told that in the first place. The book is very redundant. She constantly refers to heroin addicts, crack addicts and alcoholics. I get the similarities, but it isn't necessary to repeat over and over again. I could click fast forward and not really miss any information. I should have read more of the reviews before purchasing the book.

What do you think your next listen will be?
