Publisher's Summary

College Sophomore Autumn Boyd lies dead on the Charleston Battery. Her Uncle Boyd Tanner is out to solve this murder, on his own. Tanner is on leave from duty in Iraq. Unknown to Tanner, is Detective Frank Jones. Jones is a seven year veteran of Homicide. Fighting personal demons and a Chief who hates him, Jones investigates Autumn's murder without any leads. The only way he can save his job is to solve this case. Since he re-assigned he has to use the only lead he can find, Autumn's Uncle, Boyd Tanner. His heart and mind broken, from war and death now at home, both Detective Jones and Boyd pursues answers like men running a marathon. Time is running out before Tanner is duty bound to return to Iraq and keep Frank from turning in his shield. Each lead he uncovers leads to unpredictable choices and consequences. Nothing is as it should be.

Tanner's girlfriend Anne Willow provides physical and emotional tender care. Yet she fails to realize how far deep this case goes down the rabbit hole of Charleston. Yet Boyd has no idea how connected to this case Anne is as she runs from being straight to a Bi-sexual.

As Boyd runs a gauntlet of drug dealers, shady police, and political red tape, he realizes he has to act on his own for justice.

Don't Waste your Money

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Making it book length...one hour and 28 minutes...are you kidding. I want my credit back!

What do you think your next listen will be?

not this

How could the performance have been better?

make it a full story

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger about being duped into purchasing this! I saw the name "James Patterson" and fell for the game...I guess that makes me a sucker!

Any additional comments?

Not worth it!

don't bother

writing is amateurish narration is boring. hooks you in thinking it will be as good as James Patterson.
