Waverly Sloan is a down-on-his-luck lawyer. But just when he's about to hit rock bottom, he stumbles upon a business with the potential to solve all of his problems. In Waverly's new line of work, he comes to the aid of people in desperate need of cash. But there's a catch. His clients must be terminally ill and willing to sign over rights to their life insurance policies before they can collect a dime. Waverly then finds investors eager to advance them thousands of dollars - including a hefty broker's fee for himself.

This story had me from the start. I love a good mystery and R.C. Bray is one of the best narrators I have listened to. I finished the book and went straight back and bought the next in the series

Based on the real-life horrors faced by thousands of girls, award-winning author Pamela Samuels Young takes listeners deep inside the disturbing world of child sex trafficking in a fast-paced thriller that educates as much as it entertains. Thirteen-year-old Brianna Walker is ecstatic. She's about to sneak off to meet her first real boyfriend - a boyfriend she met on Facebook. But Brianna is in for a horrifying surprise because her boyfriend doesn't exist.

I absolutely loved this book and really loved the narrator - I've found the only thing wrong with listening to books instead of reading them is the narrator. Often the person reading the book is a big turn off but this bloke is fantastic and the only thing wrong I could say about this book is the hours I lost in sleep as I couldn't turn it off.

I found this book bounced around a bit and I had to rewind it a fair bit which was a tad annoying. I also found the narrator a little brash for want of a better word.

absolutely loved this book from start to finish, the characters were all believable.
Robert McCammon is a wonderful author and I highly recommend this audiook.
Tom Stechschulte was really easy to listen to and kept the listener rivited - will be keeping an eye out for other audio books narrated by him.
