As this ha a Kindle First book, which Prime members get a free pick of each day, I chose howeve feel compelle to finish this.

It 's not incompetent prose, but there 's a limit to how many issues I can stomach from a story I 'm not financially invested in.For starters, there 's a preface that 's essentially bragging about how challenging it is to read this ook.

I barely tolerate prologues, mostly because I wan the story hould start where it actually egins, at point where it 's most interesting to begin.

hese days it wil e more daring to tell story sequentially, without flashbacks.The prologue also introduces an issue that persisted through the entire reading.

And I wil till get past all this, up to thi first chapter, but soon a bit of prose just completely kicked me in the head: The day had started out innocently enough, with no hint of the ragic events that ould unfold and brand themselves indelibly into my brain.

In fact, it 's so intent on explaining that " describing " any particular thing comes across like an afterthought.If this were written in 3rd person, and/or there was as much depth, throughout, as there were in the final pages ( Or if foreshadowing was done more appropriately.) I could have been converted into someone who really enjoyed this particular ook, anyway, the story fizzled before it ever had chance to " catch fire. " The final, and probabl most important complaint ( Outside the " Explaining " as opposed to " Describing. ") Is The doc 's distance from all other characters ( except, once more, at very end).

As anothe urder case is re-opened and Greg is attracting the attention of a detective and of the formerly accused, Greg ’ s life is tarting to fall to pieces.To sum up my thought about this one, I ’ d have to ay it ’ s th tale with one twist too many.

I know the excellent narration provided by Scott Merriman helped a lot to kee me through this.

There were no issues with the production quality.I think this may appeal more to readers/listeners who don ’ t mind suspending disbelief at some of the revelations made and who just want to ollow a reasonably fast-paced psychological thriller without dissecting the plausibility of the content.Story 3 stars.
