Publisher's Summary

A double life with a single purpose: revenge.

Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremarkably pretty in her floral-print dresses and extra efficient at her low-level job. She’s just the kind of woman middle manager Steven Hepsworth likes - meek, insecure, and willing to defer to a man. No one has any idea who Jane really is. Least of all Steven.

But plain Jane is hiding something. And Steven’s bringing out the worst in her.

Nothing can distract Jane from going straight for his heart: allowing herself to be seduced into Steven’s bed, to insinuate herself into his career and his family, and to expose all his dirty secrets. It’s time for Jane to dig out everything that matters to Steven. So she can take it all away.

Just as he did to her.

Vengeance & Retribution!!!!

This book was totally unexpected. I found Jane Doe to be a uniquely entertaining psychological thriller. It's very down to earth with believable characters and storyline.
The story is as the publisher's summary states. Jana returned to the United States when her best and only friend (Meg) commits suicide. She does this after getting into a relationship with Steven. He hones in on Meg's weaknesses and breaks her down. Both Meg and Jane come from abusive families. Jane grew up strong Meg, not quite so strong with inhibitions and self doubt. Jane wants Steven to pay for what he did to Meg, she wants revenge.
This book is very well written. The characters are fleshed out. The story is complete and the ending is satisfying.
Nicole Zanzarella does an outstanding job narrating.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is $1.99 to purchase when you borrow the kindle edition.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

AMAZING

I've read or listened to almost 100 books so far this year, and Victoria Helen Stone's _Jane Doe_ may be the absolute best of the bunch. Better yet, Zanzarella's narration takes an already brilliant novel and makes it transcendent.

The heroine is a ballbusting sociopath pretending to be a beaten down doormat as part of her quest for revenge. Zanzarella switches between Real Jane's chilling narration and Fake Jane's simpering placation on a dime, jumping back and forth like a world class Double Dutch Champ and turning it into something seamless and thrilling.

If you have the choice to listen to this as an audiobook? Take it.

Oh wow.....daaaang.

What can I say? Hilarious, sardonic sociopath seeks revenge. It’s great, funny, original. Don’t miss this one if you’re a jaded, skeptic like me. This is not sweet and sappy, maybe a little, but she’s faking. Seriously.....great writing.

Twisted and sexy

Loved the way the author got right to the point, straight to the action. The main character was dark and twisted with a good reason so seek revenge. I didn’t understand why she didn’t have her plans laid out beforehand and I didn’t like that it took so long to get to the revenge. There was way too much time spent on Stevan’s degradation of her and not enough time on his downfall. I wanted to savor in his misery just as she did so it was disappointing that so little time was given to it. All in all I enjoyed this story and the narrator was great.

Narrator was superb!

Exceptional. Couldn’t stop listening. Great character development. While I found premise less than plausible, as time moved forward, It didn’t continue to enter my mind. Loved this book!

First time for narrator. She is On par with Travis Gilbert, Katherine Kellergran and Anna Fields and Tara Sands ..., just to name a few (but not limited to!) my favs.

Could not stop listening to this book!

I was immediately hooked to the book and the story. The characters were fascinating in a twisted kind of way and I laughed and cheered at the cleverness of Jane. The fact that she is a self acknowledged sociopath made it all the more interesting. The ending was all I had hoped it would be. This would make a great movie!

Sinister, Funny, Menacing.

I couldn't stop listening to this audio. Jane is a very good friend to have, but as an enemy......Crikey, you just wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of her. The way she stalked her prey was absolutely riveting. You were rooting for her all the way. Revenge is certainly a dish served ice-cold in Jane's world. I found myself smiling, at the way she portrayed the down trodden girlfriend, and what she was really thinking. Very well written Victoria Helen Stone.

Nicole Zanzarella, WAS Jane. The menace, the cynicism, the cat and mouse game were all portrayed brilliantly, with the nuances in her voice. Extremely well read. I shall be looking out for this narrator again.
