  • The Stranger You Know

    4 out of 5 stars 84

It begins with a chilling phone call to Casey Woods. And ends with another girl dead. College-age girls with long red hair. Brutally murdered, they're posed like victims in a film noir. Each crime scene is eerily similar to the twisted fantasy of a serial offender now serving thirty years to life - a criminal brought to justice with the help of Forensic Instincts. Call. Kill. Repeat. But the similarities are more than one psychopath's desire to outdo another.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I could not even stand this for 10 minutes, The story may be good but I could not get past the reader.

Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Dawe’s performances?

Doubt it!

Jenny Fletcher had selflessly put her needs and dreams behind those of her fiancé, Hal, a man more committed to a cause than to her. On the eve of his departure for Central America, he gave Jenny what she wanted more than anything... one passionate night. It was his final gift. Cage Hendren was the opposite of his brother, Hal, in every way. The black sheep of the family, he was all rough edges, with a soft spot for just one thing: Jenny.

What disappointed you about Led Astray?

Stupid story about nothing! I have read Sandra Brown's books for years but this one is a trite romance. No story or mystery!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Brockman

What aspect of James Jenner’s performance would you have changed?

I am fine with the performance - the content is boring.

What character would you cut from Led Astray?

Nothing needs to be cut. Something needs to be developed.
