Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kathleen Early performs Karin Slaughter’s suspenseful mystery, which introduces defense attorney Charlie Quinn. With grace and apparent ease, Early leads listeners to believe she’s known Quinn intimately her entire life. The balance Early maintains between Quinn’s tough, intelligent exterior and her compassionate, sensitive interior easily draws listeners into the complex young woman’s emotional world. And she treats the supporting characters with just as much attention to detail and nuance. Early’s swift pace and deft concealment of Slaughter’s plot surprises allow the mystery’s resolution to sneak up on listeners with the most potent of revelations. Slaughter has masterminded a fascinating new character for the world of crime fiction, and Early ensures that she’s appreciated. Catch your breath—this audiobook is frighteningly good. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile

A compelling story of chance and courage.

Ms. Slaughter has written a compelling story here that never disappoints, complemented by the perfect reading of Kathleen Early. The story concerns itself with the murder of Charlie’s lawyer father (Charlie being the main character) and her struggle to recover. Eventually getting her own law degree, she sets out to be of help to those who are at a loss as to who to turn to. When she comes upon Flora Faulkner, a motherless young girl in her teens who desires to become emancipated, Charlie is determined to help. As the story progresses, Charlie finds that Flora’s troubles are greater than she shared, leaving Charlie perplexed as to just how far to stick her neck out for this girl who seems to find the truth difficult to admit. This is a book that will not disappoint
