Publisher's Summary

Sheridan couldn't sleep. It wasn't that Manhattan was wide awake, despite the questionable hour. It might have been the cup of coffee she'd had around eight that evening, but she'd compensated by swallowing a sleeping pill - and still nothing.

She stared at the ceiling as she lay in bed, arms at her sides. It wasn't the coffee, either, she knew. She could feel them tingling along her skin, humming in her bones like a warning. Her stupid nerves again.

Maybe she was paranoid, as her mother always suggested.

But that's why she was here, wasn't it? To take some time to get her head on straight. She huffed out a breath and threw her sheets aside. Tea. She needed tea. Tea would make everything better, help her sleep.

Her heart pounded as she filled the kettle with water.

"Idiot," she muttered to herself-a nervous habit. "Your first night here and you're already panicking." She set the kettle on the stove, turned on the burner. It was a nice place, she thought, looking around. The swanky apartment on the Upper West Side her parents often escaped to. Big, white kitchen with black countertops, floor-to-ceiling windows in the open living space, terrace doors leading to a large balcony. Her mother's simple yet elegant style was evident in the grey sofa, patterned chairs, and colorful throw pillows.

Caught up in the details of the rooms, she jumped when the kettle began to whistle. Her heart thudded all over again. She tried to steady her hand as she turned off the burner, lifted the kettle away. But it still shook as she reached for a mug, poured hot water over the strainer. Something was...off.

As she thought it, she heard the unmistakable sound of a gunshot.

Jolting, she dropped the kettle onto the counter with a clang, jumping again to avoid getting splattered by hot water.

Story: Short reads are sometimes harder to judge. You don't normally get a lot of connection with the characters when they are shorter but I thought this one did a great job. I felt that this short story gave us a good mix of action, story, and intrigue. I love short stories like this as they are great in between longer ones. This one gave us mafia, murder, and romance.

I had no complaints on the narration. The narrator was new to me but did a fine job.

Okay story

BOOK REVIEW.....
The book is only barely okay. There is no depth to the characters, By the end of the story you still have no real concept at who the characters are, There is no real story line.

NARRATOR REVIEW.....
The narrator did a great job with the characters voices. I enjoyed listening to her accent.

Thank you for letting me read this book

Not bad, very short.

Story was interesting but left a lot out due to the fact it was so short. I did find it enjoyable but sort of meh!

Great read

Dangerous Knowledge by Alexa Monroe was a great read. Sheridan has escaped to the place of her parents that they escaped to as well. That was where she heard a gunshot and everything changed.

Short and Enjoyable

I was given this review copy via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This story was a little over an hour from beginning to end. It told the whole story within this time frame. I was able to follow what was going on and because I knew it was a short story I did not expect a lot of plot twist or character development. The entire story was developed and completed. The narrator was good and moved the story on to its conclusion.

Enjoyable.

I enjoyed listening to this story, I did think it could benefit from being longer, there wasn't much time for character building or relationship building. Considering it's length I think it was well written and worth listening to.

The narrator did a good job with the character voices and the overall delivery. It was natural and well paced.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

I really thought this was gonna be longer....

If you could sum up Dangerous Knowledge in three words, what would they be?

Different, Fast paced, Surprising

What did you like best about this story?

The story was short, but not short on action.

What about Teresa-May Whittaker’s performance did you like?

The narration was very well done.

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

It was so short I couldn't help it, but I wanted to know what would happen next so.....yes.
