Not at all what I was expecting...................

Although this book had some elements of a mystery, it was even more a combination of family drama and Southern Gothic. Aftermath is told from the point of view of Janet Wright, a middle-aged woman who leaves behind her life in New York City to journey to a small town in Georgia where she was born and spent the first few year of her life. Janet's father has been murdered, and she has inherited all of his holdings and wealth after being estranged from him since she was a toddler. The author uses foreshadowing to keep hinting about something suspicious behind both her father's lifestyle and his death, and Janet begins to interrogate her new neighbors to try to find out what evil they are concealing.

Because the book is told from the first person point of view of Janet, I felt that I really knew her by the end of the book. Although I overall liked her, her personality could be pretty overwhelming. She was constantly alienating people with whom she was trying to make friends, and she made outlandish accusations without any seeming basis in reality. That said, I had to admire her determination and gumption to get to the bottom of things, even if that stubbornness was rarely her friend. The story has many interesting secondary characters, and I loved how the author draws out the suspense to the very end.

I chose to listen to this book because I have enjoyed Amy Deuchler's narration is previous audiobooks, and her performance in Aftermath does not disappoint. She has a very smooth voice with a slight nasally tone that I find very entertaining, and I highly recommend anything that she narrates and this audiobook in particular.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Aftermath

An exciting mystery. When it involves an entire town, and nobody is talking, things can get a bit suspenseful. Can Janet uncover what is going on before it’s too late?

George Weinstein kept me guessing as the storyline unfolded. Well done!

I am a fan of Amy Deuchler’s work. Her narrations are always well done, and this is no exception.

Small Towns

Aftermath written by George Weinstein and narrated by Amy Deuchler tells the story of Janet Wright from New York City, who goes back to her town of birth after her estranged, rich father is murdered. The town was basically owned by her father and now Janet. Janet stays on trying to figure out the mystery to her father’s murder. I enjoyed all the characters and every time I thought I had it figured out, something happened to change my theory. I loved this book and looked forward to each day’s commute to work, so as to listen to Amy Deuchler’s excellent narration. The characters were easily distinguishable.

An exciting mystery

This is a well-written mystery thriller with fully developed, compelling characters. And Amy Deuchler gives accurate and distinctive voices to these characters. The story is relatively realistic and suspenseful. It's an exciting listen.

Maybe when I was young

A bit contrived and overly explained. I realize the challenge of reading male voices, but these were also contrived. More like a paperback romance novel. Just not for me.

Liked the plot!

I enjoyed listening to this book. It has unexpected turn of events & keeps your interest from beginning to end. The narrator did a great job! Each character had their own voice!
