Ramon Munoz has spent five years in prison, convicted of a murder his family is convinced he did not commit. In desperation and unable to get the courts to take them seriously, they turn to private investigator Paige Holden for help. Newly arrived in Baltimore following the fatal shooting of one of her friends, Paige cannot resist the family's pleas. But when Ramon's wife, having just handed her the evidence that will help prove his innocence, is brutally executed in front of her eyes, Paige is thrown headlong into a case which will place her job, her friends and her life in jeopardy. As Paige risks everything to prove Ramon was set up, she comes to realise that those controlling Ramon's fate will do anything to ensure his conviction remains intact and that there is more at stake if Ramon is freed than she could have ever guessed.
Can Paige stay alive long enough to unmask an unstoppable killer who will not rest until there's no one left to tell...

"Intense, complex and unforgettable." (James Patterson)
"There's action and chills galore in this nonstop thriller." (Tess Gerritsen)
"delivers the kind of highwire suspense that keeps you riveted to the edge of your seat." (Lisa Gardner)
Yes because I need to hear all the audio including the phone calls
phone call talkback is way too low.... bloody nearly impossible to hear.....
As long as there is no more phone calls in the plot.
frustration that I could only hear one side of the phone calls.
I found the narrator quite irritating at times in the way that she portrayed some of the characters. I only carried on because the story was good.
good crime story with twists and turns in the plot.
"The Narrator missed her calling cos this isn't it."
A different narrator. I stopped listening as it was amazingly overacted and the narrator emphasised the wrong word in sentences making the meaning unclear…really weird.
Anyone. Sadly this narrator is not good at this type of work.
"an excellent book"
An excellent book that kept me guessing to the end, and beautifully narrated. A great author.
"Great story, not so great narration...."
This book is a slow burner and it did take a while to get into it didn't help with the narrator's quite irritating voice. It was the story that kept me interested but to be honest i haven't listened to it again primarily because of the narrator which is a shame.
"Good Story, Ham Reading"
I've enjoyed all of Karen Rose's books - an enjoyable mixture of drama, mystery and romance so my husband treated me to this one from Audible. Oh my god! I had no idea that it was possilbe to 'over act' while reading a book (and I've listened to more than my fair share over the years) but Maxine Howe certainly manages it! She even dramatises the chapter numbers! I've given up listening to it and brought the book which I am thoroughly enjoying and will be making sure that I don't listen to anything else narrated by this woman.
"Just not that thrilling"
Just can't get into this book, have tried three times now, just doesn't flow for me.
"Boring, predictable and patronising"
Though the woman reads this well (apart from not being able to identify whether she was reading male or female parts at times) I found this sorry so dull this is the first audio book I have stopped listening to half way through. The "romance" element is totally unbelievable and I find the man to the rescue approach to it so patronising and nauseating. I usually listen to these while I drive this made my journey feel much longer and more tedious.
Good narrator and fan story line. Can not wait to listen to next in series.
"Good story, shame about the reader"
This could be an exciting story. Unfortunately, the reader makes it as dull as ditch water. She doesn't do different voices and the intonation is all wrong.
To the story, it was quite complicated and the bad performance made knowing who was speaking and about whom/what near impossible. Also there were the usual embarrassing sex scenes to listen through (or fast forward, as I did in the middle of number 2/3).
I like all of Karen Roses books, I never guess the baddies correctly before we're informed.
Once again another great story. Looking forward to the next one. I only hope Karen is writing as fast as I am reading hehe.
Lots of twists and turns until you each the climax. 20 hours well spent. I would recommend this.
