There’s something wrong with this family. Wes Shaw’s different than his siblings - darker, awkward, the perpetual ne’er-do-well. Mary Shaw’s the doting mother, showering her children with gifts from the heart and the pocketbook. The Shaws have survived divorce and death, but something sinister is in their midst.
It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I'd never been able to forget - even though he so easily forgot about me - and call him....
Terminally ill patients spend their last few hours tracking down murderers and felons who have walked free on technicalities or horrible miscarriages of justice....
A simple phone call disrupts Nell Williams's well-ordered life....
Jack Stratton's a good guy on the ugly side of life. Eight years ago a bomb blew his world apart and he's been picking up the pieces ever since....
Jon Porter works with his ex-wife and ex-best friend in the sleepy vacation town of Stone Lake. He toils to keep their construction company afloat, while the exes in his life enjoy their honeymoon.
Jon meets Morgan when a flock of turkeys and a curvy mountain road aligns with one-in-a-million timing. Despite their attraction, her engagement, and the ire of her family, the pair embarks on a platonic friendship. As their relationship strengthens, they share secrets, but Morgan holds her most important secret tight to her chest, where it beats like a ticking time bomb. It's not a matter of if, but when.
Adult language and content. Beware of spoilers in the reviews.
My first Phil F. Williams' audio book, Stone Lake, won't be my last. This was a different type of a story for me. Although it certainly has suspense and mystery, it doesn't have dead bodies floating in Stone Lake, no spies, yet there is tension that builds from the beginning. When reading this fine story which is enhanced by outstanding readers, keep an open mind, let it percolate or fester in your mind, but let it. You love Stone Lake even more!

This story takes you to a place where some wouldn't want to go. A man who fell in love with a woman who has a dark past. A past he doesn't know about. A man who loves her so much. He gives up every thing to clear her name.
This book will not disappoint! Great story and characters. The narrators did an excellent job. It's a bit of a sad story with a happy ending. Great job Mr. Williams!
A very emotional book. You will laugh, get angry, get disgusted and cry. I did all of it.
Performance and story I rated a five. Overall a four.
I would have given it a five star but the scene with mother and boyfriend at the dinner table was a bit to much. Reading the book it might not have come across so strong but listening to it been drawn out got on my nerve. Almost stopped listening after that chapter. Next day decided to continue and I'm glad I did. You really get the know the various characters, some of them you will love others you hate. If you're an older person you probably feel you need to have a motherly or fatherly advice talk to Jon because everything feels so real. It a very satisfying ending both sad and happy. Nice job Phil I highly recommend this book. To readers that are more sensitive to sexual references and F-words try to get past those areas because the book is well worth reading to the end. If you are a person that does not have any tolerance then this is definitely not the book for you.
I'll try not to give any spoilers ~
Before you sit down grab your drink of choice, a big box of tissues, and some snacks.
I cried, laughed. hated, cried tears of happiness and lots of tears of sorrow. The story is well laid out and there's a surprise ending. I HIGHLY recommend this book !
Narrators are top notch and a class above this porn.
I'd recommend the narrators, not this trash.
