This was a very enjoyable listen. The story was intriguing an very well thought out. The narrator did a very good job with portraying the many characters in the storyline. Overall a good listen.
Great book. Very surprising. I never got bored with it. I highly recommend this book. It's in the suspense category with Gone Girl.
"Excellent and Suspensful"
I can't wait for another book by Hallie Ephron on Audible. This was an excellent suspense/mystery with great plot twists. A must listen. The only down side is I finished so quickly.
