Publisher's Summary

WARNING: Side effects may include the ability to catch a killer...

FBI Agent Maggie Allen had a gift for catching serial killers.

Now, following the death of her husband and son, she can barely get out of bed.

Desperate, Maggie agrees to take part in a drug trial - a last-ditch effort to find something that might help her cope.

The drug helps.

However, it also carries several unpleasant side effects, not the least of them being an exceptional heightening of all her senses...just the kind of thing her old partner could use to help the FBI track down a prolific serial killer who is proving impossible to catch.

Enjoyed this one!

I was hoping to find that this was a series, but it looks like it's not. It was a great book, though! The part about her intuition being a part of the side effects of a drug could have been a bit more detailed, that part was brushed over, but I still enjoyed the story. I will look for more by this author. Narration was good, too!

Good

Trying to cope, after losing her loved ones. A good mystery and plot. Have read others by author and always good. The narration was good, given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Good, but not as good as other Jeff Menapace books

This book was good, but it was not as good as the other Jeff Menapace books that I have listened to in the past. The story was good, but the high pitched voice the narrator used for Maggie was not pleasant. I was glad the book was not a long one because of the narration.

Will definitely get in your head

This book shows how our lives can change in an instant, giving us the chance to reinvent ourselves in our own image. Perhaps it's fantasy that magic pills like these exist, but it's not crazy to wish that they did! What I wouldn't do to be the enhanced person that Angel Clark so eloquently speaks about in her narration of Side Effects.

Thriller

This was another thrilling story from Jeff Menapace. I think that the story was interesting and kept me listening, wanting to know what would happen next.
The narrator was pretty good, I enjoyed her reading.

Narrator was terrible.

Angel Clark, the narrator was awful. The narration was slow, slow, slow. Will never buy another book she reads.

Dissapointing performance

What disappointed you about Side Effects?

I think a computer would have narrated this book better. It looks like Angel Clark did not bother to read the book before she started reading it out loud. Overall because of her "narrating" I could not "get into" the story and then did not want to continue listening the book and would like to return it.

What didn’t you like about Angel Clark’s performance?

It looks like Angel Clark did not read the book before she started reading it out loud.
