Great read

Singer writes a great book that kept my interest from the beginning to the end. The perp was totally unexpected, and it was interesting how the clues slowly unfold. The reader made the story enjoyable too

Lots of twists

This was a great book, lots of twists and turns! I like legal thrillers and this one had lots of meat to it.

GREAT LISTEN!

You know when the narrator reaches the end of a chapter and there's a long gap...when you sometimes think you e run out of battery or somehow disconnected your device. Then, just as you look at it the narrator announces the next chapter and you sigh with relief. Well, at the end of this book I SO wanted to hear another chapter announced but, it was the END. I loved this book.

Not this author's best.

This was not as good as some of his other books. The story dragged and just wasn't that great. The narration wasn't horrible, but neither was it great.

Was looking for Shane Stevens book. I had read his book, By Reason Of Insanity, when I was in my 20's. Now pushing 60. Excellent book. By Shane Stevens

Excellent narrative

Decided I was going to write a beginning review. First audible book that was excellent from the beginning. The narrator had an excellent voice and the characters presented vocally were very good. Would listen to another audio book w/ this narrator. Beginning story line very compelling and can’t wait for the rest of the book.

A true mystery

This my first book by this author and narrator. Kept me interested from the begining. Great plot and suspension. I never could have anticipated the ending.
Randy Singer did a great with voice change and intonation that made you part of the story. Strong work.
Best of all no swearing and pornographic description s. This so refreshing.
Keep up the good work.

Sort of pseudo-spiritual. I really didn't like it.

I feel like I wasted a whole lot of hours listening to this one. Left with a bad taste in my mouth. No cussing but am attempt to lead a person into the "paranormal". if I can return it I will.

Emotionally wrenching

I had to return this book due to the opening chapter. It was a courtroom scene describing sexual abuse of a child. It was not possible to complete the book. Might be a good story but be aware that you will be emotionally involved from the beginning.
