Detective Stan Sheperd lies comatose in the hospital, a victim of arsenic poisoning. The Newpointe police have a suspect: Celia Shepherd, Stan's wife.

Celia is no stranger to such charges. When her first husband died of poisoning, a technicality scuttled the case against her, and Celia got off scot-free. Now it looks like the same old story - only this time, the motive appears plain. But attorney Jill Clark thinks the pieces of the puzzle fit together a bit too neatly.

Consulting on a case, Patrick encounters the work of a killer who displays a stunning degree of ruthlessness.

I really enjoyed the story. I can hardly wait to start the next book in the series!!! .
I wasn't thrilled about the person who read the story. most of the time I felt he was very flat and even boring at times. I almost returned the book and I would have if I didn't love all the other books I have listened to by the author. after a while I got use to the preformer's voice.
I'm glad I didn't return the book because I really did enjoy the story. Enough about this book , I'm ready to start listening to the next book in this series!!! I'll let you know what I think of book 2!!!

When their last outgoing flight is cancelled, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says the single-engine prop plane can fit one more, if barely, Ben offers the seat to Ashley, knowing that she needs to get home just as urgently. And then the unthinkable happens. The pilot has a heart attack, and the plane crashes into one of the largest stretches of harsh and remote land in the United States.

I really loved this story. i listening to books while i walk my dogs. We walked a lot longer than usual and more often because I hated to stop listening and I could hardly wait to hear the next chapter. I really loved everything about my listening experience. i could almost feel the cold and I laughed and I gasped I even cried it was better than going to see the movie!!! Anyone eho loves a good love story will love this book. But it's so much more than that you will need to listen to this book to understand the title...The Mountain Between Us.
