Former homicide detective Nicole Foster has hit rock bottom. Driven off the force by her treacherous partner and lover, she's flat broke and struggling with a gambling addiction. All Nicole has left is the dream of a warm bed at a homeless shelter and the haunting memories of three-year-old Kelsey Chase - whose murder case ended her career.
As Nicole obsesses over the old facts, she realizes everything about that case felt off: a disinterested mom, a suicidal pedophile, and too many questions left unanswered. When the little girl's grieving father begs Nicole for help, she's drawn back into the investigation...and given one shot at redemption.
But the deeper Nicole digs, the more evil she uncovers, including betrayals that hit painfully close to home. Will a shocking discovery be the key to finally getting justice for Kelsey and resurrecting her own life?

"The plot's a hot mess"
It had the makings of a good thriller but then the plot got so contorted and confusing that it just doesn't compute. I'm normally a fan of Olsen but this one just doesn't fly.
"The last hour of the book pulled out the 3rd star"
Best-The twists and turns at the end
Worst-The author should study police procedure
Probably not for the reason I listed as WORST part of the book
I stopped reading this book several times. The authors police investigation was bad writing and in no way believable. I strongly dislike giving a bad review. If you can overlook this part and get through it, the last 1/4 or so is pretty good.
"Twist and turns you won't see coming"
This was a excellent read. I LOVED it. It had me interested from start to finish. As always, I was hoping for a good read but I was so pleasantly surprised at what a great book The Sound of Rain was. Such a great story-line with twist and turns you won't see coming. It's not overdone or cliche like so many other books. Great plot, great characters and well written. If you're a mystery-thriller-suspense fan you really need this book.
"Wow never saw that coming"
Yes, if they are anything like this
Yes, this one kept me guessing. I liked that
She brought passion to the story. She didn't just read it, she lived it.
"Negative 5 stars"
Ugh. I want back the time I wasted on this book. It was SOOOOOO boring for about 4/5ths of the way through. The characters were wooden at best and the author couldn't even make the kids in the book people I could care about. Though at least they weren't as self-centered, immature, and just plain stupid as the main character. Good lord, was she stupid!! And so unappealing in every way. I just did not give one brass farthing what happened to her.
The last 1/5th of the book was made somewhat better, because things started happening. But they were just so ridiculously far fetched and utterly implausible. It only made me more angry! It was a horrible ending, but I guess that is apropos, because it was a horrible book.
"Couldn't even finish listening"
The storyline had lots of promise. However, the soft porn was a turnoff. I didn't even finish listening. Moved on to better writing that used characterization and plot to intrigue.
"Loved this book..."
Loved this book, didn't want to put it down. Many twist and turns. About children sad, but this is the world today. I highly recommend this book.
Yet another story about a crooked and inept, weak female cop. stringing out the story and doing a hasty wrap up of an ending with no real resolution to all of the complicated characters previously introduced.
It took a long while to like the main character, but once I did, this story grabbed me and wouldn't let go.
"Lots of twist"
Really good story with lots of twist and turns I wish there was a sequel.
