Publisher's Summary

What if everything you believed was wrong?

Dominick Maxwell had an average life...with one exception. Everyone he was close to ended up dead. 

When Dom's sister - his last living relative - is attacked and dying, Dom thinks he has lost it all, until he realizes that he is the prime suspect. 

Fearing he is next - and possibly about to end up in jail - Dom disappears and urgently tries to find out the answer to the question that has been haunting him for years. 

Who or what is responsible for destroying his life by taking away all that matters to him?

Brilliant and Captivating

R.E. Sargent has done a phenomenal job writing a story steeped with rich characters and a plot filled with twists and turns that will leave you gnashing at the bit for more of his work. Andy Packard’s narration effortlessly guides the listener through Sargent’s creation transitioning to and from a myriad of voices and accents with precision. I highly recommend this book!

Ending!!

Two major points of consideration for 'Relative Terror'...

Con: There is a female character in this book that acts outrageously unbelievably in a "love" capacity and it's hard to take seriously.

Pro: The ending is rather fantastic and was not one that I guessed, which is both rare and refreshing!

Overall, I'd say that the ending makes up for how silly some of the behavior is.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Can reviews be bought?

I can't believe Audible would offer so inferior an effort. Hackneyed story, inferior plotting, disappointing narrator - but what did the narrator even have to work with? I should be paid to have spent my time trying to uncover any entertainment value here. I wonder, however, who in the world are the people who left positive reviews for this crapola? Audible offers some GREAT products but THIS one should be PANNED. The grammar, dialogue and story effort are painfully bad. There is no excitement, mystery or surprise. What a waste of space and money!

Just when you think that you’ve figured it out...

This author has fast become one of my fave thriller writers! His books keep you captivated and just when you think that you’ve figured it out...BAM! Totally blindsided! This book is no exception...Dom has lost just about every living relative, except his older sister, Nina. When Dom gets the late night call that Nina had been viciously attacked at home, he knows that someone is out to get him. He no longer believes that everyone that he’s ever loved, has died by accident. Dom decides to run, until he’s figured out what/who is after him. Of course, that makes him the #1 suspect in his sister’s case. Dom meets Jennifer while on the run, and she becomes his confidant and partner. Action, adventure and a psychotic killer all make for a spell binding story.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Very tricky!

This story takes you on a crazy ride. It is full of ups an downs. The author did a good job with misdirection. It made it more difficult to figure things out. Also the whole Detective angle I thought was useless...actually came in pretty handy. I listened to this on audio. Andy Packard did a great job. His little additives really helped lift this story up to another level.

You're forgetting I'm a woman.

When Dom learns that his sister, the last of his family members or friends, has been attacked in her home and is in intensive care in the hoslital, instead of waiting to talk with the police he decides to run. It looks suspicious, especially to Detective Kent Perry, who is even more convinced that it was Dom who had tried to kill her. Afraid and alone, Dom meets a girl who believes in him and she joins him on his journey to try to prove his innocence.

This is a really fun, attention grabbing story from the very first page, a murder mystery thriller that maintains a tight grip on the reader throughout. Character development is not thorough but is sufficient to cast doubts about the probable killer almost to the very end. There are snippy quips and humour as well as fast paced action, too. Narrator Andy Packard's performance is superbly over the top, pure unadulterated melodrama, perfect for this reading and greatly adding to the enjoyment overall. This book is not fine literature, sharing with John Scalzi the 'he said' 'she said' problem, and is. not even remotely believable as a real life event, but it is a visual delight for the ears.

My thanks to the rights holder of Relative Terror, who made a complimentary copy of this book freely available to download at FABC

Suspenseful

The book wasn't great but still an enjoyable listen. I think that it would have come over a lot better with a better narrator.

Horrid

I've struggled through to chapter 19. Can't take any more, I just cant. I don't know how to describe how I feel about this.

On the run

Dominick Maxwell lived an unexceptional life apart from the fact that everyone he was close to or loved was dead. His last living relative, his sister, had been attacked and now lay in a coma in hospital. Dom didn’t think it was over he had a feeling that he was next so he went on the run looking for answers knowing that this would make him the No.1 suspect. On the road he met a woman named Jennifer. They instantly clicked and she joins him on the road and backs him all the way. Kent Perry the lead detective on the case is obsessed with finding Dom as he believes he is the one who attacked his sister and maybe killed the other members of his family and his best friend.. A good thriller with lots of twists and a surprise ending.
