Publisher's Summary

The perfect life becomes the perfect nightmare in a twisting novel of psychological suspense from #1 USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Jaynes…

Dr. Daniel Winters is living a fairy-tale life. He has a beachfront home in Malibu, a career as a respected pediatrician at a thriving Los Angeles practice, and a gorgeous new wife, Mia. For a man whose past was rife with mental illness, addiction, and thoughts of suicide, it seems too good to be true.

Then Daniel learns that a fellow pediatrician and his family were found slaughtered in their home. It’s just the first chip in the facade of Daniel’s perfect life. Little by little, everything starts to fall away. At work, his career becomes at risk when he’s asked to remain silent about a dangerous new drug. At home, Mia has gone from an affectionate newlywed to a mysterious woman carefully hiding secrets - and possibly a lover.

Then, another doctor is found dead, and as Mia’s behavior becomes increasingly suspicious, Daniel begins to wonder: Is paranoia getting the best of him...or has his fairy-tale life become a nightmare worse than he could have ever imagined?

UNPUTDOWNABLE!!!!

This book was a totally unexpected surprise. I have only listened to one other book by Jennifer Jaynes and it wasn't for me. So, I was hesitant about this one but found I could borrow it for FREE. When I borrowed the kindle unlimited edition. So with nothing new in my library I thought why not?
This is one of those books I COULD NOT PUT DOWN!!!!
I was riveted to this story from the time I began listening until it ended.
The book is told by the two main protagonists, Daniel Winters (pediatrician) and his wife Mia.
Daniel is being forced to give children he sees in his practice a new immunity booster injection for upper respiratory infections. The drug has more side effects then what is being told to parents as the manufacturer is suppressing those facts. Reporting side effects is discouraged and a few doctors have "committed suicide" who had tried to raise public awareness. There's a lot of money to be made if this drug gets put on the schedule for school and daycare requirements.
Meanwhile, Daniel's wife Mia has some secrets. He's the "perfect" husband but is she the perfect wife? Because of Daniel's suspicions about what his wife is hiding m, he makes some bad decisions.
At the same time all this is going on you hear the story of a mother whose daughter is a recipient of this new drug and it's effects on her. And you wonder why the founder of the medical practice insisted that Daniel keeps pushing this on his patients even after Daniel confronted him with his facts and concerns.
Jane Oppenheimer does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS.

Great story<br />

loved Malice. It's a good crime/mystery story. A bit on the predictable side but worth the listen. I enjoyed every chapter. I hoped for a different ending but I can still imagine the ending that I wanted.

Malice, love it.

One of the best thrillers I've read. From the start I didn't want to put it down. At times I was sure I knew where the story line was going, I was wrong every time. and the ending was such a surprise. Can.t wait to listen to another of this author's books. The narrater perfect for this gene.

Scary doctors

This book was enjoyable and frightening to say the least. It is full of innocent people and bad guys doing a lot of stuff they shouldn't.

I Should Have Paid More Attention

...to the other reviews, this story drags on with too many facts and ends up feeling like it didn't go anywhere. I now need to see if there is a sequel because I feel like I missed something. The voices were definitely overdone as another review had suggested, the baby voice and exhausted sounds were a bit over the top. Overall I did like the twists in the story that lead you to be surprised when you thought you had it figured out.

Interesting Story

This was a fast paced thriller with interesting characters. Many times I feel that authors don't do a good job with the endings of books, but I thought that the ending to this one was very well done. The one complaint I had was that (at least with the audio version), Daniel's inner dialogue with himself became irritating and it really didn't add to the story.
