Publisher's Summary

2nd Chance: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!* 

Booktrack editions are essentially a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment. Music and ambient audio are added to complement and enhance the audiobook experience. It is a synchronized movie-style soundtrack that complements the narration of existing audiobooks; the tempo and rhythm of the score harmonize with action, dialogue and the characters' emotional arcs.

2nd Chance reconvenes the Women's Murder Club, four friends (a detective, a reporter, an assistant district attorney, and a medical examiner) who used their networking skills, feminine intuition, and professional wiles to solve a baffling series of murders in 1st to Die.

This time, the murders of two African Americans, a little girl and an old woman, bear all the signs of a serial killer for Lindsay Boxer, newly promoted to lieutenant of San Francisco's homicide squad. But there's an odd detail she finds even more disturbing: Both victims were related to city cops. A symbol glimpsed at both murder scenes leads to a racist hate group, but the taunting killer strikes again and again, leaving deliberate clues and eluding the police ever more cleverly. In the meantime, each of the women has a personal stake at risk - and the killer knows who they are.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

What a ride!

I've just recently finished 1st to die, and immediately, I wanted to read another of James Patterson's books. I did not regret getting this one. The story, the narration, the soundtrack, all of it together really brought me out of a boring day in the house and into the book. I want to follow Lindsey more and get on to the next book in the Women's Murder Club.

great story, terrible female narrator

Melissa Leo has the same cadence when reading each character. she may change pitch or accent, but she speaks with the same rhythm for each character, sometimes giving up on accents partway through the conversation so you don't know who's speaking. to me, it was similar to listening to a high school reading of Shakespeare - falling into iambic pentameter instead of naturally-sounding speech. Jeremy Piven is fine, but he's basically only one character most of the time. there are also glitches in both audio files for this book at the same pivotal second in Chapter 50 where Chimera is describing himself. with a good narrator, the world melts away while i'm caught up in the story. with this one, I would find myself tuning it out, only to come back nearly a chapter later when the cadence changed. I give Melissa Leo 1 star, Jeremy Piven 4 stars, and the story 5 stars.

the music wasnt for me

I'm half way done and the music is actually distracting me. I guess I was expecting music mostly during the action scenes only. However, it's non stop for every scene. For example, it's cringy during the "touching emotional" scenes - pensive piano notes. It's just too much. It would have been better to conservatively add music to selective important parts.

The story itself is pretty good. Melisa Leo is ok - I generally have trouble with female narrators (its a me thing)

Voices are great

I love the voices of Jeremy Piven and Melissa Leo. Hopefully I can find more books with them reading.

Very Disappointing

First, the music was a maddening distraction. The story was weak, the reader was boring.
