This audiobook is so filled with clues, misdirection, confusion, and amazing conclusions. The story takes place in the weeks surrounding 9-11. The building being hit by the planes were just one event of the morning that day and there is one reporter that starts looking into seemingly unconnected events.
Alex begins looking at the series of events in hindsight and weaves the events together in a complex blanket of occurrences. The characters are well formed, they are real people with fears, flaws, and personalities.
A great first book and I now can not wait until the next book in the series comes out. I am totally hooked on Alex Vane.
It is such an amazing story. I listened to the book in audiobook form and I am so glad that I was able to hear this narrator, Jeff Hays, for the first time. The emotion, voices, inflection, and cadences he used were perfect. Each voice perfectly executed. Jeff Hays has the ability to make you wonder if you are listening to other actors that he brought in for the story. The women’s voices were not falsetto voices, they were genuine and distinct. The talent that Mr. Hays showed is phenomenal. He truly brought additional life to a story that was already full of characters and situations. Fuller and Hays truly compliment each other in this story. There is something so unique in hearing a character talking with her mouth full and knowing that that is exactly how it should sound. Fuller wrote it brilliantly and Hayes executed it flawlessly.
Alex is likable and yet he struggles with connecting with his own emotions and history. As the book progresses I find I like him more and more. It is like Fuller gave him a body and he has to stretch and grow inside and out to fill it in. It is interesting to see Alex change, the more Alex changes, the better I like him. He wears his human frailties well.
The legal portions of the book were involving and the search for the truth was compelling. It was such a deep story. Each time a little bit of the convoluted truth was unveiled, it brought me a taste of the whole picture. Yet, there was a small bit that did not come to light and that part tickled my mind.
Oh, the twisted pasts of people. They never know how much damage they can do. With the bodies adding up and the secretive person providing hints this book just keeps on giving. It is intense and I could not stop listening. This nine-hour book is totally addictive. I was truly left wanting more. More of this story, more Alex Vane and more Camila Gray. I am astounded that the level of writing is a product of a first-time novelist. Complex, intricate plots, and first-time novels usually are not this tightly woven.
I am posting this review during Mystery Thriller Week. The annual event to celebrate mystery and thriller authors, bloggers, and fans.
