Confronting the town that shunned her as a child, she unearths secrets that some would kill to keep buried. And after her client confesses to the crime, Cass detects a widespread cover-up. If she doesn’t get to the bottom of it soon, the next fatalities may be the ones she loves....

Not Recommended

This was not a good story, and the reader was nasally whiny. It was painful to listen. Certain phrases were overused — messenger bag, gut punched, etc.

Narration almost killed it.

Right from the start, I didn't care for the voice of the narrator, but decided to give it a chance. It was a long drive and we needed a book... Narrator's voice of the 19-year-old accused is downright horrible. She sounds like an 8-year-old, make that an 8-year-old with an annoying voice. As for the story, the author should have listened to the book before finalizing the draft. If she had, she would have certainly noticed the unnecessary and repetitive use of "messenger bag" when talking about Cassi's briefcase. That is not the only repetitive use of descriptive words. You'll hear them... Not terrible, but too blatant for me. The storyline was pretty good even though easy to figure out. Just like so many audiobooks, it seems like the last 1-2 hours just drag on. Bumping it up to 1.25 speed was torturous with the voices.
