My hubby and I love Lynette Eason's books! Add this one to our list! The subject of human trafficking is hard to accept, and the author does an excellent job of presenting it. We were immediately drawn into the story, and at times, even shouted out suggestions to the law enforcement officers! As for the 2 stars on the narration, this lady has a nice voice, but she puts in too many pauses. Her narration does not flow well. But it was certainly not enough of a distraction to stop us from listening. We look forward to Book 3 in the series.

This is an amazing book, based on a true story. The lives that these kids lived is unimaginable. There are some gut-wrenching situations, but the author does an incredible job of telling the story without keeping you "down in the dumps". I HIGHLY recommend this book!!!

It's Elvis Week in Memphis, and homicide detective Rachel Sloan isn't sure her day could get any stranger when aging Elvis impersonator Vic Vegas asks to see her. But when he produces a photo of her murdered mother with four Elvis impersonators - one of whom had also been murdered soon after the photo was taken - she's forced to reevaluate. Is there some connection between the two unsolved cases? And could the recent break-in at Vic's home be tied to his obsession with finding his friend's killer?

Rachel's Mom was murdered, thought to have happened during a burglary. Now Elvis impersonators are dying. How are they connected? Rachel and Boone set out to discover the truth. When I first read the setting for the book, I thought it sounded cheesy with the impersonators. I was wrong. This book was well done, and all the loose ends get tied up.

This book was very good. I must admit, my husband enjoyed it more than I did. I got a little bogged down in the politics and technicalities, but he loved it. I am glad I stuck with it, since we have listened to the rest of the series. The author has done an tremendous job of research and putting together an outstanding series. We highly recommend it.

This was our first audio book by Patricia Bradley. The storyline was exciting and kept us guessing. In the beginning we had a hard time keeping up with all the many characters, but it all became clearer as we listened. We recommend this book if you like mystery and drama. We plan to listen to the remainder of the series.

I listened to this book with our 2 grandsons, 9 and 7. We absolutely loved it! There was lots of humor but also some drama. There were times where I was able to give them some "life lessons" based on situations in the book. I highly recommend this if you are a dog lover. We have Ellie's Story loaded up to listen to while on vacation!
