Publisher's Summary

PI Angie DeRose strives to find and rescue endangered runaways - work that stands in stark contrast to her own safe, idyllic childhood. But in the wake of her mother's sudden death, Angie makes a life-altering discovery.

Hidden among the mementos in her parents' attic is a photograph of a little girl, with a code and a handwritten message on the back: "May God forgive me." Angie has no idea what it means, and her father claims to know nothing. The lies she unearths will bring her past and present together with terrifying force. And everything she cherishes will be threatened by the repercussions of one long-ago choice - and an enemy who will kill to keep a secret hidden forever.

Great story but overly dramatic delivery

Too many exhausting breathless passages for me. I found the delivery distracting. Excellent plot however- so I stayed to the end.

Excellent

Excellent start to finish! I am a big fan of Daniel Palmer's writing and this one was a very good read with lots of twists.

What a shame...

Would you try another book from Daniel Palmer and/or Tavia Gilbert?

Palmer YES! Gilbert NOOOOOOO!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Literally ANY other narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

So breathy and melodramatic about everything. A simple statement like "He took me to McDonalds" was made with a breathlessness that made the narrator sound like she'd just finished a marathon. All male voices made the characters sound like they were idiots.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment that it probably would have been an entertaining listen if I hadn't been distracted by the bad narration.

Any additional comments?

Someone must have told Ms. Gilbert that her breathless delivery of EVERY SINGLE LINE is "riveting". They lied! It really is just irritating and distracting. Please Tavia, just...stop it!

I ENJOYED THIS IN ONE DAY!

I couldn't stop listening! Thank goodness it was my day off and I could listen while I took care of chores. I love the main characters and how their stories intertwine. This is a sticky subject line and Daniel Palmer tackled it so well. I believe this is my first Daniel Palmer book but it definitely won't be my last. I would love to see PI Angie DeRose become a series.

Twisty McTwisterson!

Great book with a new (albeit very disturbing) storyline that gets to you on a few levels. I found myself screaming at Nadine to start and then feeling sad and sick and then hopeful! Interesting book with 2 storylines really, it keeps you interested!

Gripping and cleverly written

I can't believe this was read by one person! She was spectacular! The best performance I've heard on an audio book. I sat in my car in parking lots waiting to hear what came next. This made a sad "buzzword" very real for me and I appreciated the raw writing. Excellent all around.

Terrible story made worse by over-wrought narrator

If you are a fan of trafficking, then this is your book. I don't understand how it was published, let alone picked up for Audible. Don't waste time and credits on this.

Interesting story, annoying narration

There are two main plots to this story and it does an ok job switching back and fourth. The best one is about a teenage girl who winds up in a terrible situation. She stupidly falls for a classic plot to get someone involved in sex trafficking. Her story, told though her diary as the plot unfolds is great. The second aspect of the story focuses on the main character's quest to uncover secrets from her mother's past. It would make a good story on its own except it makes the main character seem kind of ridicules. It takes away from the true main story.

The annoying part is the narration. The narrator starts out ok but is overly dramatic and breathy when expressing the views within the diary, and that's not too bad considering the circumstances. However, as the story progresses, it becomes a constant to the point I really don't want to listen to her.

I liked the story but will probably actually read other books by this author is the same narrator is used.

Great listen!

I loved the storyline. You really feel for the victim and I found myself more cautious with what I allowed my kids to do. Scary world out there.

Started out well

Too much going on. Very disjointed. Actually, this could have been two separate books. Could have used a good editor
