Publisher's Summary

He Was Taught How To Kill

Even behind bars, serial killer Harvey Day Smith exudes menace. Psychologist Jolene Granger has agreed to hear his dying confession, vowing not to let the monster inside her head. And Harvey has secrets to share - about bodies that were never found, and about the apprentice who is continuing his grisly work....

And Now He'll Teach Them

He buries his victims alive the way his mentor Harvey did, relishing their final screams as the earth rains down. And as one last gift to the only father he knew, he'll make the most perfect kill of all.

How To Die

Everything about this investigation is unnerving Jo, from Harvey's fascination with her to the fact that she's working alongside Texas Ranger Brody Winchester, her ex-husband. Harvey's protégé is growing bolder and more vicious every day. And soon the trail of shallow graves will lead them to the last place Jo expected, and to the most terrifying truth of all....

An Easy Romantic Thriller

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was not a waste of time, and was a good way to stay entertained while driving and doing other tasks.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Serial killers from the past. And a hint that one may be returning in future novels.

Have you listened to any of Jean Alexander’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think I've heart this narrator before, but she was very good.

Was No Escape worth the listening time?

Yes, I suppose so, since I was not in the mood for a demanding listen.

Any additional comments?

This was okay, a decent listen. Worth the credit if you enjoy romantic thrillers and mysteries.

Struggled to finish but it was ok

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was a good way to fill up time for a long drive, but it didn't give the feeling of "I have to read more!"

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jean Alexander?

Yes, she was a bit dry and uneventful

Excellent book, horrible narration

The story had a great plot twist and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. However, the narrator was horrible, probably the worst I've ever listened to. She sounded like a first grader learning to read. It was difficult to figure out where one character's dialogue ended and the next began. I'm looking forward to the next book and hoping she's not the narrator.

good book

I loved the book and gave it 5 stars because it had everything I like; suspense, drama, romance and solving the who done it. I had to listen to the beginning twice because I didn't realize there was a prologue. The characters were well developed and the suspense was palpable. The relationship between the main characters was believable and well thought out. The narrator was great at character voice recognition and I look forward to listening to other books narrated by her. I am new to audible and becoming a fan. I would like to read and listen to more books by this author.

Good thriller

Where does No Escape rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Middle of the road. I was not overly impressed by the reader unfortunately but it was a fair job. Not one I had to turn off at least. The story was pretty good but did get a little predictable near the end but it was a good listen.

What was one of the most memorable moments of No Escape?

Not going to give anything away! There were a few real good surprises in there as well!

Mary burton rocks

just finished the third book she had written and it's the Texas Ranger series. All 3 are really good and she built a good story.

Narrator ruined it

I was looking forward to finishing this series but she’s the narrator for both (I believe) and she enunciates every single word and like someone else said....she sounds like a first grader learning to read. I absolutely could not finish this book. I’m surprised I made it to chapter 4.

Awful Narrator

I’ve been through over 50 thrillers in audible and this is the first book I cannot finish. As intriguing as the story line is the narrator is unbearable.
