Publisher's Summary

In this explosive new thriller, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson delves into the deep bond between two sisters and their shared dream that becomes a harrowing nightmare of madness, hatred and jealousy....

Cassie Kramer and her younger sister, Allie, learned the hazards of fame long ago. Together, they'd survived the horror of a crazed fan who nearly killed their mother, former Hollywood actress Jenna Hughes. Still, Cassie moved to L.A., urging Allie to follow. As a team, they'd take the town by storm. But Allie, finally free of small-town Oregon, and just that little bit more beautiful, also proved to be more talented - and driven. Where Cassie got bit parts, Allie rose to stardom. But now her body double has been shot on the set of her latest movie - and Allie is missing.

Police discover that the last call to Allie's phone came from Cassie, though she has no recollection of making it. Instead of looking like a concerned relative, Cassie is starting to look like a suspect - the jealous sister who finally grew sick of playing a supporting role. As the tabloids go into a frenzy, Cassie ends up in a Portland psych ward. Is she just imagining the sinister figure who comes to her bedside, whispering about Allie - a visitor of whom there is no record? Is someone trying to help - or drive her mad?

Convinced she's the only one who can find Allie, Cassie checks herself out of the hospital. But a sudden slew of macabre murders - each victim masked with a likeness of a member of Cassie's family - makes Cassie fear for her safety and her sanity. The only way to end the nightmare is to find out what really happened to Allie. And with each discovery, Cassie realizes that no one can be trusted to keep her safe - least of all herself....

Entertains

This held my interest and was well performed. Worth my time.

I love mysteries and understand you need several potential culprits, but thought there were too many unnecessary characters in this book.

Excellent Book

This was a great book, it took me a while to get through it because when I would start I wouldn't want to stop. towards the end my stomach would be and knots because of the suspense. It was well narrates and definitely well-written. I wanted to Google what happened as I listen but I opt not too. lol. It wasn't too predictable but I was able to figure out the secret of the family. I wasn't able to figure out who the person was though. I would say this book wasn't worth the credit, it's actually worth the money.

I didn't like how Cassia still never completely trusted her instincts, even at the end. Although, she herself, was the most reliable.

Good mystery, good narrator

This is what I need right now. I had gotten so bogged down in espionage and ongoing sagas (good ones) that this hit the spot. The only thing I figured early on was Cassie and Trent but wouldn’t Ancestry have a ball with the family tree!

Can’t go into detail without giving the story away so I’ll just say that I enjoyed it and looked forward to each new session when I had to put it down to sleep or shower or that sort of thing.

Thought the narration was great and I’m enjoying Lisa Jackson

Book Thrills

Loved It! This is my third time listening to this book! I Love the narrator, she's able to really bring the characters to life! Their emotions ring clear in her voice! She's awesome. My favorite part I feel is when the sisters come face to face again for the first time since her disappearance! Chills went through me!! Amazing Story! and Amazing Narrator!

I love Julia Whelan, a narrator like no other!

I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying many audiobooks with narrator extraordinaire Julia Whelan, who never fails to deliver; from one character to several, she excels. Lisa Jackson penned an exciting suspenseful thriller from beginning to end. Whelan has a formidable range of characterizations, both female and male, a rare talent. I look forward to many more. Highly recommended! 👏🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👏

I'm always a fan of Lisa Jackson

I struggled with this one because the narrator just wasn't a good fit. She, in my opinion did not pull it off when performing the male characters. The story was good. This won't keep me from Miss Jackson's books of course.

Disappointed

It seemed like the author was all over the place like let’s throw this in and then we can do this. I kept hoping something would happen to fix the flow of the story, it just went on and on...

Just ok

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really, I didn't like the story line it was hard to follow. I liked the other two books in the series but not this one.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The end of the story was the best part, otherwise it drug badly.

Was After She's Gone worth the listening time?

not really

Any additional comments?

Lisa Jackson is one of my favorite authors but I don't think this is one of her better books.
