Publisher's Summary

We Got Him is the story of one family’s inherited flaws, harbored guilts, and obsessive desires, whether for a child, a parent, or a second chance to do the elusive right thing. 

Powerfully worked against the unfolding events of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Elizabeth Searle’s taut drama of a young, pregnant stepmother and her troubled stepson is a narrative tour de force, interweaving public and private acts of terror with the redemptive, but ever fragile, forces of love.

Critic Reviews

"Elizabeth Searle's We Got Him is an ingeniously plotted, suspenseful novel written in blood, mother's milk, and the unintended consequence of rage. It is the story of one family's inherited flaws, harbored guilts, and obsessive desires, whether for a child, a parent, or a second chance to do the elusive right thing. Powerfully worked against the unfolding events of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Elizabeth Searle's taut drama of a young, pregnant stepmother and her troubled stepson is a narrative tour de force, interweaving public and private acts of terror with the redemptive, but ever - fragile, forces of love."

Intense Read

Thoroughly enjoyed the recording of this intense story with its fictional characters and situations intricately woven into the real-life events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing. Thoroughly researched and detailed, the book took me on a suspense-filled ride, even knowing how one part of the story ended.

Boston Strong, Woman Strong

Powerfully moving mixture of the intensely personal and the universally human. Spiced with precise historical fact from those horrible days, and a superbly expressive reading. Everyone in Boston has a Marathon story. You need to hear this one.

Tanya Eby gives a five-star performance

Tanya Eby is a true Audible narration star and here, she gives a Tour de Force performance, completely embodying the two main characters in We Got Him, a husband and wife facing the premature birth of their baby on the night of the Boston Marathon bombing man-hunt. Eby captures all the emotional nuances in a reading that should win an Audie award. Brava to this talented Audible star and this inspired match of book and performer.
