Publisher's Summary

I have to tell you something. I did something bad.

Fifteen years ago, Blair's best friend Molly was murdered. 

Fifteen years ago, Adrian Jones went to prison for it.  

Fifteen years ago, the real killer got away with it. 

And now, Blair's terminally ill sister has made a devastating deathbed confession, which could prove that the wrong man has been imprisoned for years - and that Molly's killer is still out there. Blair's determined to find him, but the story behind Molly's death is more twisted than she could imagine. If she isn't careful enough, the killer will ensnare her and bury Blair with his secret.

Excellently preformed

This book has it all. Characters that have a history, a few twists and turns and an excellent narration through Ms. Norris. I will look for more books by the author and narrator.

Really, really good!!

Interesting story and plot line and fantastic narration bring this story to life. This is my first Patricia MacDonald book and I will definitely look for more. Lynn Norris was a perfect selection as the storyteller. She has a gift of bringing younger characters to life that many narrators do not have and she handles the other characters adeptly. Highly recommend!

So the always incredible vocal artist ☆LYNN NORRIS☆ has attained a new level of *wow* on this one. Varied, bang-on pacing (and timing on specific dialog that'll stop your heart, it's so good), characters absolutely mind-blowing in their exquisite, layered, discrete detail (check out the pivotal Black prisoner, cameos such as the postman, and the *villain*, to name a tiny handful), a dazzling array of vocal effects and dialects, emotional authenticity — it's the work of a mature master who knows her business, and gives you the enormously pleasurable gift of relaxation (you know you're gonna have a luxury ride with a crystal-clear view of the scenery) punctuated by defibrillator shocks to the system that are the hallmark of first-rate suspense. Deeply, deeply satisfying.

Author MacDonald has written an evocative piece (and, as a denizen of the Poconos, where the story's set, I should know) — atmospheric, with natural dialog, dimensional characters, and a pretty tight story line that feels plausible and, while it delivers on the shock value front, never feels contrived for the purpose of gratuitous violence or formulaic, cartoonish "*thwack!* *kaBOOM!*-type effects. Rooted in reality and believability, 's what I'm trying to say here.

A truly enjoyable listen. Recommended highly.
