Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson comes a new novel of nerve-jangling suspense as a woman haunted by guilt realizes that nothing can be trusted - not even her own memory...

There are people in Edgewater, Oregon, who think that twenty years ago, Rachel Gaston got away with murder.

Rachel still has no idea how a foolish teenaged game turned deadly - or who replaced her soft pellet air gun with a real weapon. When a figure leapt out at her from the darkness, she fired without thinking. Too late, she recognized her half-brother, Luke, and saw blood blooming around his chest.

Despite counseling, Rachel’s horrifying dreams about that night continue. Her anxiety contributed to her divorce from Detective Cade Ryder, though he blames himself too. But as Rachel’s high school reunion nears, she feels her imagination playing tricks, convincing her that objects in her house have moved. That there’s a hint of unfamiliar cologne in the air. That someone is tailing her car. Watching her home.

She’s right to be scared. And as connections surface between a new string of murders and Luke’s death, Rachel realizes there’s no escaping the past, and the truth may be darker than her worst fears...

Worth listening!!!

I LOVE this book. I was hooked almost immediately and can’t wait to fond out how it all ends! I love the characters, finding them believable, lovable, and perfectly flawed, I could relate easily. It was a great performance.

Lots of Twist and Turns

This book has plenty of suspense, some mystery and a little romance intertwined for a great listen.

Narrator was shrill

The story was ok but not like the other Lisa Jackson favorites. The narrator was fine talking but shrill as hell speaking for the female characters especially Rachel. I had to turn the volume 3 seconds into the book. Because of this I can’t tell if the story was awful or the character Rachel was shrill and weak.

Annoying story, annoying narrators

This was a lazy book. It was poorly edited and the audio performance in particular was awful. This book switches between narrators frequently but the narration doesn’t pause long enough to make that clear, meaning there was a lot of confusion. I also didn’t like any of the narrator voices, they were whiny, breathy, and just overall unpleasant.

It was a chore to get through this book. Would not recommend.

This was an awesome book!

I always like Jackson’s writing style but she out did herself here. The story was great and twisted, the characters where good to hate and the ending was really freaky. I was well entertained!

Awful, Don’t waste your money!

I am usually careful to purchase audible books that I know are authored by consistently good authors . All of Lisa Jackson’s work is usually good, but this was not good at all. The main character was weak and whiney and very annoying. The story was unrealistic. and moved at a snails pace. I did not enjoy this book at all. I usually don’t write such negative reviews but I thought it was called for in this instance.

Lisa Jackson at her best

The ending surprised me so that's the top item a thriller/mystery writer has to achieve. Lisa Jackson always does that. I listened to the whole book and was surprised by the ending. I liked listening to the book most of the time and was hardly ever bored. So I gave the story 4 stars.

But if I had to judge the the teenagers in this book, it would be a whole new story. What a bunch of spoiled, indulged, RUDE brats! Why in the world would any parent put up with Rachel's? Whining nonachievers who talked to their parents like dirt, cursed them, committed crimes, lazy. That alone drove me crazy about this book and just made me angry enough so I almost deleted the book from my library. What's scary is that I know today's kids DO talk to their parents like this.

And the performance! O-M-G. That narrator. A narrator, for me, can make or break an audiobook. She was good part of the time, maybe even most of the time. But when she got wound up, as the reviewer above me says, she was SHRILL. Shrill doesn't even cover it. When the character was excited or scared or just mad, she would literally shriek and speak in such a high octave and so fast that the crystal could explode. I had to fast forward through Lila, Rachel's friend, and that bratty daughter of Rachel's. When Rachel's son talked, I'd go to sleep. And the narrator's lisp. I know it's not PC to talk about various characteristics and a lisp may be one of them, but there are some jobs some people should not have unless they overcome certain speech patterns when they narrate a book. Sorry if that offends but if you want a critique from me, there it is.

So, overall a good book. But I wouldn't listen to another one by this narrator.
