Publisher's summary

Quiet towns keep big secrets.

Private investigator Jessica Shaw is leading a quiet life in a Californian desert community, where she spends her days working low-level cases. But when a former resident asks Jessica to help her sister, Rue Hunter - a convicted murderer whose execution is days away - Jessica can’t resist the offer.

Rue doesn't remember what happened the night two high school students were killed thirty years ago, but everybody in town is certain she’s guilty. As Jessica looks for answers, she finds that local rumors point one way and evidence points another. And nobody wants to face the truth. Meanwhile, Jessica can’t shake the feeling that someone is stalking her - now more than ever, she knows she can’t trust anyone.

As Jessica digs deeper, she encounters local secrets in unlikely places - including the police department itself. But the clock is ticking, and Jessica must find the truth fast - or Rue’s bad memory may be the death of them both.

Good, But Needs More Thorough Ending

I liked the premise and the story was well written, even though I’m not fond of flashbacks. But it seems authors are reluctant to flesh out the epilogue once the climax has occurred. I’m sorry, but I need a blow by blow of what the bad guys have coming to them and a more complete resolution for the other not characters as well. If I’m going to invest the time to read a book, the author needs to take the time to finish it.

Another Lisa Gray Hit

As with past books I've read or listened to by Lisa Gray, Bad Memory did not dissapoint. I enjoy the PI against the world stories. The main character and PI, Jessica Shaw, is not afraid to take risks with her own life for the sake of her clients. She always figures out the twisted tales of multiple mysteries on her way to solving the case. Great listen!

If you typically solve the mysteries you read before the authors can tell you, you definitely need to take a stab at this one (pun intended). Lisa Gray keeps you guessing and is a genius at weaving tales of deception, unveiling pieces of the puzzle one gasp at a time. I didn't see many of them coming and was pleasantly surprised by the suspense.

There's no need to read the Jessica Shaw books in order as each one is a different story with a bit of background in each.

Just as good

I read this book a couple of years ago. Listening to it was even better. I didn't remember the ending until I got there.

A twisted delightful story

I loved the first Jessica Shaw story by Lisa Gray so I was eager to listen to this one. It did not disappoint and was performed perfectly by Amy Landon! I really enjoy the layers of Jessica and how the author develops her characters. If you’re looking for a good read or listen, check this one out.

Great P.I. book!

I’m really beginning to like Jessica Shaw! Jessica’s a little bit damaged but she’s persistent. This time she’s been hired to investigate a 30yo case against a woman on death row...the week before her execution. As Jessica digs into the events surrounding the murders, the more it appears that the case was not as cut and dry as it seemed. The suspense is just enough to keep you interested and guessing. Great ending. Looking forward to more in this series.
