Flynn is stuck - depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isn’t work when it’s saving you from yourself. But things aren’t quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynn’s world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesn’t want to go looking for answers at the supermarket. Because something there seems to be looking for him.

Reads like it was written by a high schooler

So disappointed. Very poorly researched, the plotting is obvious and juvenile. This would have gotten a "C" in even a freshman college writing class.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't get past the first few pages because of the quirky sing-song narration. It just became more and more irritating to me as it went along. The plot of the book is interesting enough to earn it a spot on my reading list though. It's it possible to return an audiobook?
