Publisher's Summary

On March 14, 2012 Don McNeely sat next to his wife of 27 years, Linda, as she lay sleeping. After contemplating her fate for over two hours, he pulled his Ruger Blackhawk .41 magnum and shot her in the chest, killing her instantly. As police raced to the scene he called his children seeking their forgiveness. He told police that his wife suffered from terminal brain cancer and over the course of the previous months, on numerous occasions she had begged him to shoot her. As the case unfolded in the Seattle media, he was hailed a hero; a man brave enough to end the suffering of the love of his life. Death...with dignity. Within days, witnesses began to contact police doubting his claims that she wanted to be killed. The happy, loving couple portrayed in the news couldn't be further from truth.

Was it mercy? Or murder? Would justice be served?

The story was very well told and kept me interested the WHOLE time. I cannot praise the author enough for telling such a heart-wrenching story so well.

Tragic, true story! Excellently told!

Would you listen to For She Know Not What She Does again? Why?

No, not the kind of story that once its told, you need to hear again.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It was very interesting how it went from liking the husband-- to despising him.

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

I have not.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When I realized that this-- well I don't want to spoil it!

Any additional comments?

This was a well researched and convincing argument that assisted suicide is not always what it seems. This was a great story and as a true-crime fan I absolutely loved it! The facts seem very clear in this story and no matter how you may feel about assited suicide-- this was NOT-- this was clearly murder!

Hours of My Life I Will Never Get Back! Horrible!

Would you try another book from Jon Keehner and/or Charles Ahl?

From Jon Keehner absolutely not. Undeserving of a second chance. The narrator deserves a second chance. For one the title of the book has nothing to do with it's content. Book was full of fillers and did not offer that much toward the case at hand. I'm not sure how this was ever accepted as a book by editor, publishing house, etc., A terminally ill woman's life was ended by her husband. Some say he assisted as it's what she wanted and others say not. Her family and friends may be in denial. No one will ever really know. I just know the book had me bleeding by the ears before it concluded. The book if written for justice was not carried out. The "victim/terminally ill" woman wasn't portrayed to be very likeable and neither was her husband.

What aspect of Charles Ahl’s performance would you have changed?

Charles Ahl did well as a narrator. I hope he was compensated well for his talent of story telling and not just reading. Charles gets the 3 stars!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from For She Know Not What She Does?

If I were the editor I would of handed the manuscript back to author and suggest it be destroyed and to start over.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your credit !!
