Publisher's Summary

Born into a life of privilege, Jeremy Stroeb loves freedom, loathes responsibility and drops out of college to start backpacking across Europe. But this free-spirited drifter crashes back to brutal reality when his parents, Rachel and Daniel Stroeb, are murdered in their home on Miami Beach. When he returns to Miami, Jeremy assumes guardianship of his teenage sister, Elise, who is traumatized and convinced the killer will be back for her.

With steely, urgent resolve, Jeremy vows to find out what really happened to Rachel Stroeb, the respected CPA and Daniel Stroeb, the controversial professor. Determined to get on the inside of his parents' lives, Jeremy takes a job at the accounting firm where his mother worked, and enrolls at the university where his father taught. But too many details don't add up.

With mounting certainty that his parents were anything but the people he thought they were, Jeremy must face the toughest questions of all. Who were Rachel and Daniel Stroeb? And when will the killer be back for the next of kin?

Annoying, immature young man at center of story.

Plot was just okay, but the spoiled, entitled son was really irritating. He kept deciding on a different character as murderer without any reason. Then he'd decide on another person as murderer. Left 16 yr old sister alone for days on end while he fell in/out of love at every whim. I hate to write bad reviews because someone else might like these characters, but I couldn't believe how little thought he gave anything or anyone.

Thoroughly Enjoyed

What did you love best about In Their Blood?

I have to say the narrator - he has the perfect voice for this type of project.

What other book might you compare In Their Blood to and why?

I admit I haven't read or listened to enough mystery/suspense novels to find a good comparison.

Have you listened to any of Charles G. Schlichter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't Think he has other audiobooks up, but I will now search to see if he does.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How do you find your parents killer when everyone is suspect?

Any additional comments?

While I did say I liked the narrator's performance best about the book, I will say that the book itself was quite enjoyable and I really did like how it opened and how it kept you guessing.

Kept me guessing.

I normally figure out “who dunnit “ well before most books end, but this one had me guessing right up to the end. I definitely recommend it! I was given this copy in exchange for an honest review.

Boring Story - Monotone Narrator

The story was not very good. I could not finish it. I really tried. What really killed it was the narrator. He was really bad. He talked really slow and in a monotone. I wonder if the author of the books have any idea of the narrators chosen for their books and how they sound.
