But that same summer, Cindy's sister, Laura, was brutally murdered.

Fantastic character development, narration, descriptive narrative that puts you there, hearing and feeling the wind, the weather, the emotions, fears, anger and love. Brian Freeman's books bring me right back to the Duluth I spent parts of my life growing up in. So far, this is the best of his "crop" of the best!

It's like hearing from old friends. I always look forward to the "next story", from my favorite characters and authors and one of my most favorite narrators. As usual, I'm seldom disappointed! Good work...you kept me glued to the book, and that's what I look forward to when I select my next book to read or listen to. Thanks for never lessening the integrity of your talent and work.

Thank you. It's been awhile since I've listened to a well-written book. The plot was interesting and kept my attention to the point I didn't get much else done. Books are meant as an escape and it did just that.

As the sole survivor of the car crash that killed her parents, grief-stricken paramedic Kit MacKlenna is stunned to learn her life is built on lies. A legacy from her father includes a faded letter and a well-worn journal. The journal reveals she was abandoned as a baby 160 years ago. The only clues to her identity are a blood-splattered shawl, a locket with the portrait of a 19th century man, and a Celtic brooch with magical powers.

The beginning was a little confusing, and I was preparing to be disappointed in the author's approach to time travel. However it all came together with some nice surprises. Thanks to a excellent narrator...I really enjoyed the first book of this series, and look forward to Ms. Logan's next books.

Lucy's back! In a story ripped from the headlines, the violence is the worst she's ever seen, the stakes are higher than ever, and then...things get personal. It's a vicious, horrific crime: the brutal killing of a teenage girl. When Pittsburgh detectives call FBI Supervisory Special Agent Lucy Guardino to the scene, their focus is on who and why. Was it the girl's Afghan father striving to regain his honor after she became too Westernized? Her Jewish boyfriend? Someone from Afghanistan settling an old grudge?

Most the time I can move beyond the narrator...but couldn't this time. Even I could do better. This may be a good book, but will have to read it.
