Real estate mogul Sean Jackson is throwing himself a splashy 50th birthday party, but trouble starts almost immediately: His ex-wife has sent his teenage daughters to the party without telling him; his current wife has fired the nanny; and he's finding it difficult to sneak away to his mistress. Then something truly terrible happens: one of his three-year-old twins goes missing. No trace of her is ever found. The attendees of the party, nicknamed the Jackson Associates by the press, become infamous overnight.

What a SLOW start to a predictable, boring, drawn out story. I only kept listening in hopes that it would pick up & something would happen to make my time invested worthwhile. I was extremely disappointed. The narrator annoyed me on top of it all. I would look elsewhere for a book to listen to.

I truly enjoyed this latest installment in the Tracey Crosswhite series. The narration was great- as the narrator is known for. The characters are well rounded. The story was solid, keeping me guessing up until the very end. I couldn't stop listening because it was That GOOD. I look forward to the next in the series.

She’s on the run, desperate to stay one step ahead of her father’s murderer and determined to track down the one man she’s been told to trust: her father’s old cell mate, Brent Carver.

The story was good, though predictable. However, the narrators voice was extremely tough to listen to. Each time she portrayed Brent's voice, I wanted to stop listening.

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

This book started out slowly. I was getting bored wondering who the various characters were and what they had to do with the main story & feared that I wouldn't be able to go on listening. Then the connections began and the story developed. Once I got about half way through the recording, I couldn't walk away. Literally, I Had to complete the 2nd half or so of the book without breaking. It got That Good! I must admit that I stopped everything I needed to do in order to finish listening to this book. It was a great story & the way in which the characters lives were entangled was captivating as the book progressed.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mistakenly, I listened to the 4th book Cold Fear not realizing it was part of a series. I loved it & at the end, the narrator said it was part of a series. I was thrilled & immediately started book 1. Three days later & I've now finished book 2- Cold Pursuit. These books are wonderful. The crime stories are very intriguing & keep me interested and wanting to hear more. There's a great deal of detail to the crimes & the FBI's pursuit of the criminals. In addition, there's just enough story devoted to the development of the complex characters and a bonus of some really hot relationships. I'm on to Book 3 & can't wait.
Definitely worth the time!!

This was terrible. From the beginning the narrators voice annoyed me. She sounded like a "valley girl" from the 80s. The story was drawn out & very boring. It was painful to listen and I could not pay attention because it was That Dull. Must admit, I didn't finish. Just couldn't bring myself to spend any additional time waiting for something to happen.
Don't waste your time! There are far too many others to listen to.

Everyone in the quiet Jersey Shore town of Silver Bay knows the story: on a Sunday evening in September 1991, Ramsey Miller threw a blowout block party, then murdered his beautiful wife and three-year-old daughter. But everyone is wrong. The daughter got away. Now she is nearly eighteen and tired of living in secrecy. Under the name Melanie Denison, she has spent the last fifteen years in small-town West Virginia as part of the Witness Protection Program. She has never been allowed to travel, go to a school dance, or even have internet at home. Precautions must be taken at every turn, because Ramsey Miller was never caught and might still be looking for his daughter.

My cock has an appetite. A huge and very particular appetite: blond, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although that's a story for another day.) As a high-profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online. My rules are simple: one dinner. One night. No repeats. This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less. At least it was until Alyssa...

What a let down. Listened to it at the beach & kept waiting for it to pick up & get interesting. Lots of talk about Andrew's penis (main character). Maybe would've been better if I wasn't away from my husband- could've listened to some of the racier parts together instead of watching a porno. Don't waste your time.
