Publisher's Summary

A former true crime reporter whose articles have appeared in the New York Times and other prestigious publications, Rick Mofina draws upon his wealth of knowledge to pen gripping crime dramas. In Desperation finds gritty journalist Jack Gannon reunited with his estranged sister Cora. But the circumstances are less than ideal. Cora’s daughter has been kidnapped and is now being held for five million dollars ransom. Time is running out, and as Gannon digs deeper into the case, it becomes clear that his sister is holding something back - a secret from her sordid past that could be the key to saving her daughter’s life.

    "The end of a 20 year search..."

    In Desperation is another solid suspense on the Jack Gannon series. There are three books on this series. I found Vengeance Road, which is the first one to be spellbinding. I wasn't crazy about the second but this one is also very good.
    Gannon hasn't seen his sister since she disappeared 20 years ago. He's looked for her periodically over the years but has pretty much resigned himself to the fact that she is dead. His parents died looking but never knowing what happened to her.
    Now, out of the blue his sister has called him. He's a well known journalist and she's the one who pushed him to to journalism. She needs his help. Her daughter has been kidnapped and if she can't find the $5 million her boss has stolen from them they will kill her.
    What a ride this turns out to be.
    Graham Rowat does an excellent job narrating.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    "Narrator hurts story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The narrator is flat and speaks in a monotone in many places; in others, he is overly dramatic. He mispronounces Spanish which beomes intrusive.


    What three words best describe Graham Rowat’s performance?

    Poor story match.


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

    Nope
