Publisher's Summary

1st to Die adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Booktrack editions are essentially a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment.  Music and ambient audio are added to complement and enhance the audiobook experience. It is a synchronized movie-style soundtrack that complements the narration of existing audiobooks; the tempo and rhythm of the score harmonize with action, dialogue and the characters' emotional arcs. 

Imagine a killer who thinks, What is the worst thing anyone has ever done? - and then goes far beyond it. Now imagine four women - a police detective, an assistant DA, a reporter, and a medical examiner - who join forces as they sidestep their bosses to track down criminals. 

Known as the Women's Murder Club, they are pursuing a murderer whose twisted imagination has stunned an entire city. Their chief suspect is a socially prominent writer, but the men in charge won't touch him. On the trail of the most terrifying and unexpected killer ever, they discover a shocking surprise that turns everything about the case upside down.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

1st To Die - Im Hooked!

Loved Suzanne narration, drew me into the story. Strangely enough the soundtrack also pulled me in. More soundtracks please! Patterson is the master of suspense.

Murder club

I have been enjoying the murder club series. It’s great to hear again how they all got together. I enjoy books and movies that portray women as feminine and strong, intelligent and effective. This book was a fun read. I particularly appreciate the plot twist at the end. Well done!

a little something for all my passions all in one

This is the first book of a 17 book love affair. It has every thing I need to fulfill all my desires for a great book all in one. It has mystery, romance, a tear jerker, a page turner, a loveable smart heroine. I could go and on. I have listened to four of the books within a week and anticipate finishing the entire 17 book series within the next two and a half weeks or less if posible. .I LOVE ANYTHING WRITTEN BY JAMES PATTERSON!!! Haven't gotten into the murder club yet? Please join NOW!! You wont be disappointed.

Amazing story, amazing audiobook!

A great mystery book! It really kept me on my toes! The writing was well-paced, and the synergy of the narrator and background music really brought the story to life, as if I could see the scenes playing before my eyes! I would definitely recommend this!

Not up to Sanford standards.

This book would probably be better if not for the over the top dramatic affects by Suzanne torrent.

Music!!!

Book is great! What's with the music.???? Sometimes it's so loud i can barely hear the narrator. First time I've had this happen, wish I hadn't bought it.
