When a sleazy TV program threatens to tell all about retired opera superstar Carlotta Moses - and the child she allegedly abandoned years ago - the singer's protective family engages investigator Patricia Delaney to find out who originated this whopper and buy them off. But is this tabloid tale possibly true? As Patricia plunges into a violent, heart-wrenching search for the facts, she faces an even uglier possibility. For within the mystery of Carlotta Moses's dark past lurks a chilling, infinitely more deadly secret.
When Patricia Delaney debuted in 1994, she was a cutting-edge, first-of-her-kind eGumshoe. Now, the reprinted editions (from Cornerstone Communications), with updates to reflect their times, of the Patricia Delaney eGumshoe mysteries still resonate with timeless humanity and passion, while providing a look back at the 1990s, when technology began to change forever how private investigators worked.
The Death We Share by Sharon Short is third in the Patricia Delaney 'eGumshoe' mystery series. It is a well-written mystery. The author keeps the pages turning with twists and turns to the plot and a good concoction of characters, setting, and conflict. The characters are evocative and realistic. If you like female sleuths, this is a book you won't want to miss. The narrator, Michelle Babb, does a nice job of giving characters their unique voice, making for an enjoyable listening experience.
Although this book is from the 1990's it really doesn't show its age & it doesn't feel outdated at all. So don't let that deter you! It's all very relatable & feels like it could realistically take place today.
The beginning was a little hard to follow for me, as it jumped around from many different characters perspectives. However at the time you have no idea who the characters are. You know their name but not how they fit into the overall story. So, that makes it hard to keep up. I had to go back and re listen to segments and write down names to have it make sense. Once the different story lines came together and the main players were laid out it got much easier to understand.
Once the story gets going there is a lot going on & it kept me guessing the whole time. Each chapter unwrapped more clues, but I still didn't see most of the revelations coming. I love writing like this which pulls you in & leaves you stumped as to whodunnit & why. Michelle Babb does a great job of narrating this story & giving different voices to the characters. It was an enjoyable listen!
I was given this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
My first Sharon Short book, and that was a good first meeting. Not perfect, but a close 4,3 out of 5. It feels so outdated to have a book where internett is a "big" thing. So maybe it felt a bit "old, but i liked the book, i am a bit surprised by the quality of the book! Sharon Short writhes fantastic when she wants to, and i feel like she could maybe just could give us something else when it comes to the ending.
Michelle Babb is good as always. Maybe the highlight of the book is the Michelle Babb reading of it. There is something when the narration is lifting UP this book, and Michelle Babb does that. She makes me wish for more!
I got this for free for my honest review, and that is what this was: Honest!

An interesting book set in the 90's when technology was starting up big, and how a PI used it in her investigators. It took a bit to get started, but kept you guessing at all the clues being uncovered.
The narration was well done, The characters were excellently portrayed, Michelle Babb is great.
