Publisher's Summary

If evil shook your hand, would you know it? Jay Grady wakes up in handcuffs. Sitting at a table in an isolated room. Across from him sits a man who wants Jay to recount his life. Every detail of it. If not, he'll kill him. So begins Jay's reluctant journey to a past he's tried to forget. From his days ruling Wall Street as an impossibly intuitive stock picker, to just a few hours before, when he pumped six bullets into a transient outside a dying Missouri town; a drifter he'd once thought was just an ordinary man. But he was far from ordinary. And Jay came to realize he was not a man at all, but something darker.

Wasn't sure where this oen was going...but...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, esp. folks who enjoy somewhat supernatural mysteries. It actually does keep you guessing righ tup to the conclusion.

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

Yes,it did. I had no idea where the author was going with this until the extreme end, and even when the reveal occurred, there is still enough ambiguity to keep the listener wondering .

Which character – as performed by Tim Danko – was your favorite?

Mr. Right was compelling.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Time allowing, yes.

Any additional comments?

This is an odd duck, and some listeners may not find the conclusion compelling. I , on the other hand, really enjoyed the concept and the execution of this somewhat supernatural mystery. It grows on you. I think if you give this one a chance you will enjoy it as well.

Not impressed

I lived through it to see if it would get any better and although the ending was not any better I did live through it although the story and the obnoxiously slow reading and long pauses about did me in.

What's. Up. With. The. Narrator?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The truth is, I'm not sure about the story, because I just couldn't get past the narration. But if you like your narration slow as molasses, to the point of not being sure your speed settings are correct, then you might like this.

Any additional comments?

Narrator's style is way, too, slow. Absurdly so.
