Publisher's Summary

Marty Kalish is a young man suffocating in the heat of an affair with a married woman named Rachel. When Rachel's husband disappears one night, Marty is one of the first to be questioned. With few likely suspects, the police arrest him for murder.

We know Marty was outside their home that night. We know he has a motive. We know he's guilty of something. But is it murder?

Everything we learn - about Marty as a man, his affair with Rachel, and the night in question - comes from Marty himself. We want him to be innocent, but the more he tells us, the more we fear he is guilty. And as the twists and turns of the plot unfold, we can't be completely sure.

Another Excellent Ellis Story

Love this writer. He takes the time to develop characters and interesting story lines that seem to naturally work themselves out instead of a sudden stop and they lived happily ever after ending. Most authors now write short 200 page novels that don't have time to develop. Not this one. I'm really loving "listening" to all his books.

Brilliant mystery, read perfectly

The Dick Hill reading of this mystery is so good that I hesitate to try an Ellis read by anyone else --- I'll just read another one. This is an unreliable narrator story. What is with our guy? And what is really going on here? There are more than one unreliable characters. Deceit occurs. The reading is so transparent I see all the characters and all the actions and never think of the words read. I loved it.

Engrossing!

Would you consider the audio edition of Line of Vision to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot had a lot of twists and turns and kept me interested from beginning to end!

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love Dick Hill's voice & his narration! Mr. Hill's voice is engaging, appealing and I very much enjoyed his narration. He wasn't bland and montotone sounding like other authors. I have actually returned many books strictly because I couldn't endure listening to the narrarator's voice. But Dick Hill brought the story and the characters to life and I could envsion this book as a movie playing in my mind as I listened to every scene. I am currently searching for other books with Dick Hill as the narrarator.

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

Deception

Any additional comments?

Great plot. Great narrarator. You won't be disappointed!

Don't waste a credit!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The main character is a moron. I could not get pass chapter 7.

What was most disappointing about David Ellis’s story?

The way that he fashioned his main character. The guy was so stupid. Most people know about electronic footprints and the way he keeps actiing like a little school girl.

a bit boring

It was hard to stay with. I didn't finish it. and - the voice doesn't fit the character, a young guy with an old voice.

Horrible narrator! Terrible book!

Listening to his (he he) overactive voice drove me crazy.
The writing was stupid...Rachel...Rachel...Rachel....is this supposed to be an award winner. How depressing.

Long and drawn out

This book is a tough call. It was somewhat interesting, but felt weird all the way through it. It does have some twists at the end, but it is all muddled up. I would not listen to it again. You win some, you lose some, and some get rained out.
