Steffi Mundell, colleague, ex-lover, and rival for the DA's office...Rory Smilow, the homicide detective without equal and Hammond's avowed enemy...the wily and beautiful Davee Pettijohn, Lute's widow and Hammond's lifelong friend, who's too honest to mourn the husband she despised...and Hammond's prime suspect, the mysterious woman who shares the secret that would be fatal to Hammond's ambitions.
Written in a narrative that grabs and doesn't let go, The Alibi is a top-notch crime novel - and more. With sensitivity and insight into the human condition, Sandra Brown also creates a forceful psychological portrait of a man in moral turmoil, who must make difficult choices between his personal passions and the demands of his conscience.

"Another great work by a master storyteller"
This is a great murder mystery by Sandra Brown, a master storyteller with the gift of intrigue, plot twists, deception, and the inevitable shocking conclusion. She is a wordsmith with both characters and locations, always making us feel as if we are there with her as she describes settings with a tapestry of colors, senses, desires, and subtle nuances. Old fans will recognize her trademark style in this novel, and newcomers will soon be captivated by her talents.
"Great Book, Poor Narration"
I really liked the book, but the narration was BORING. There was no excitement in his voice and I found myself rewinding parts because he would drone on and on.
I will not buy another book the narrator is reading.
"Naration put me to sleep"
I really enjoyed this book, but found I had to rewind several parts because I would tune out to the naration. Pity.
"Good story; poor narration"
The print book is a better choice if you're a Sandra Brown fan because Redfield's narration spoiled what would have been a great story. I don't need Victor Slezak to do an SB book (though he's my 1st choice) but there are far better male narrators out there than Redfield. He was expressionless and didn't sound like he was interested at all. That came across clearly such that I drifted away myself and ended up listening to something else.
I regretted the purchase and have requested a refund to buy something else. As for The Alibi, I'll go buy the ebook!
I count on Sandra Brown to come through with a good novel and she never disappoints me....the "Alibi" is right up at the top with the rest of her novels and was an interesting listen! Keeps you guessing with an ending you wouldn't expect.
"Great characters and plot twists."
This book will keep you interested right to the end. Some times the narration was flat but that did not take away from the colorful characters and tightly wound plot. I thought Sandra Brown's 'Envy' was slight better but only slightly.
I enjoy listening to Sandra Brown's books. I look forward to my drive home when I'm involved in her books. The narrator on this one has a low voice. I had to turn up the volume to hear it clearly.
The last word in the book is in the title! This is almost as good as Envy
"go sandra brown!"
another great book from sandra brown... you'll never really know the mystery until the end of the story =D although it was a happy ending, i was not quite satisfied though. I guess I have pictured the characters hugging and comforting each other. =D
Karin Slaughter was my favorite writer and I felt lost when I finished listening to all her books. but this is my 3rd Sandra brown book and I must say I may like her books better.
