Number-one New York Times best-selling author Patricia Cornwell delivers the 23rd engrossing thriller in her high-stakes series starring medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta. Dr. Kay Scarpetta is working a suspicious death scene in Cambridge, Massachusetts, when an emergency alert sounds on her phone. A video link lands in her text messages and seems to be from her computer-genius niece, Lucy. But how can it be? It's clearly a surveillance film of Lucy taken almost twenty years ago.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Of course. This was a good story and in spite of a criticism about the reading, I felt it was pretty well read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dying To Tell?

No particular one stood out. There were several memorable moments as you'd expect in a Robert Goddard story.

Have you listened to any of Gerard Doyle’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Don't think so.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but I only have time to read a little in bed before I fall asleep.

What an excellent read. So many turns and twists to the tale but not all quite believable!!
The voice of the star of the book sounded very like Dalziel but it wasn't him. However, that made the story even more addictive.
