When a body is found stuffed into a barrel at a garbage dump, covered in long red lacerations, Detective Jenna Alton and her new deputy, David Kane, rush to the scene. Nothing ever happens in the small American town of Black Rock Falls, so Jenna believes the victim must be one of two recent missing persons, and she fears for the life of the other. Both were strangers to the town, but there's nothing else to link them. Jenna knows someone must have seen something, but no one's talking.

What would have made Don't Tell a Soul better?

Im not sure if it is the reading or the writing but this book made my walk seem LONGER...I finally turned it off and opted to listen to nothing instead. I cant tell you about any plot twists or story line or anything because at chapter 13 of 61, I realized it was just not worth finishing.

Would you be willing to try another one of Alison Farina’s performances?

Nope.

What character would you cut from Don't Tell a Soul?

all of them

A young woman lies dead at the bottom of a waterfall, dressed in a wedding gown with a rose stem jammed down her throat. And in the small town of Graveyard Falls, the horrifying vision stirs a long-ago nightmare back to life.... FBI Special Agent Cal Coulter gets called in to investigate the murder, which bears a terrifying resemblance to a series of killings committed thirty years ago: three teenage girls were found dead at the waterfall's base, all bearing rose stems in their throats.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I finished the book for 1 reason, I had already paid for it. The writing is juvenile and the characters are one dimensional which is unfortunate because there was a decent outline there... I feel this book would be best suited in the YA category.
