Publisher's Summary

Once You Go This Far is the fourth thrilling mystery from Shamus Award-winning and Anthony and Macavity Award-nominated author Kristen Lepionka.

Junior-high school Nurse Rebecca Newsome was an experienced hiker - until she plummeted to her death at the bottom of a ravine in a Columbus metro park. Her daughter, Maggie, doesn’t believe it was an accident, and Rebecca’s ex-husband is her prime suspect. But he’s a well-connected ex-cop, and Maggie is certain that’s the reason no one will listen to her. PI Roxane Weary quickly uncovers that the dead woman’s ex is definitely a jerk, but is he a murderer? 

As she pieces together the days before Rebecca died, what Roxane finds doesn't quite add up. From a series of trips to Detroit and across the border to a casino in Windsor, Canada, to strange calls from Rebecca’s home to a charismatic political candidate, to a women’s health organization, to a secretive church group that seems to have more information about its members than it should, Roxane needs to figure out how everything is connected before a dangerous secret gets someone else killed.

Awesome

So I have the book and hardback also but I hadn't taken the time to read it so I got the audiobook The book is great The voice actress who does the voice for Roxanne is amazing and the book is thoroughly enjoyable had a great twist. I expected it to be a different twist and it was a different twist than that So what else could you ask for.

She did it again!

Kristen has done it again - every time I read one of her novels I get to like Roxanne more and this time we get to enjoy some turns in family relations. Personally my Audible library is filled with traditional classics and history, but when Kristen comes out with a new book I gobble it up.I can’t wait for the next one; I’m guessing COVID-19 might be a part of it.
