Summary

"Twisty and totally unpredictable, Mad Love will have thriller fans raving. Brilliantly narrated by the incomparable Julia Whelan along with a full cast, Wendy Walker's dark and electrifying tale comes to life.” Mary Kubica, NYT best-selling author of Local Woman Missing

They were madly in love. The perfect couple.

That was the story everyone in South River believed...until Gin Talcott and Adam Archer are found shot in their bed.

Adam is dead at the scene. Gin is fighting for her life.

Detectives Greta Jessup and Finn Pate are assigned to the case. Greta has a long history with Gin’s first husband, Eddie, and is determined to protect his 18-year-old twins. Piper discovered the bodies. Daniel is missing—and so is Adam’s gun.

Shocking discoveries about Gin and Adam’s marriage quickly shine a bright light on the children—and their aunt Ruth Talcott, who has her own secrets.

The one person who might know the truth is local estate attorney Sarah Branford. Gin left a letter for her two days before the shooting which Sarah now opens:

Dear Sarah, If you’re reading this, there’s a story I need to tell you. It begins and ends with Adam. I will never forgive myself for what I’ve done....

The evidence twists and turns until the shocking truth about the Talcott family—and the killer—is finally revealed.

Available in Dolby Atmos on Audible.

Fab, gripping thriller

This was a gripping story, very well told with a few different readers so it was easy to keep track of who's who because of the different voices. It was very interesting and was exciting till the end.

Top tier narration and a great storyline

I finished this in under 24 hours. It was SO good. The narration was top tier. The multiple narrators made it easy to distinguish between the characters and made the whole book more gripping. Much better than a lot of the audiobooks I’ve listened to where it’s just one monotonous voice the whole way through. The realistic background sounds really helped to immerse the listener in the story and enabled me to actually visualise what was happening at that point so clearly.

I didn’t see the ending coming and it was really well written in that there were no plot holes or loose ends.

Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves this kind of narration and a good old who dunnit.

Short but brilliant

Brilliant short story. Engaging from the start. Less predictable than anticipated. The sound and performance style were really unusual. Eery music and sound effects made it feel like you were in rooms and spaces described. Very much more like a play than an audio book. Couldn’t fault it. Great listen.
