Publisher's Summary

In this pulse-pounding short thriller for fans of Big Little Lies and The Last Mrs. Parrish, Maggie Cabot refuses to sit by idly as police re-open an investigation into the mysterious death of a woman her husband used to know.

After two decades in a near-perfect marriage, Maggie and James Cabot are enjoying their first year as empty-nesters in their charming Florida suburb, until two detectives arrive at their front door and change their lives forever.

The remains of a young woman have been found at a campsite in the Florida Keys. Hannah Nilsson, only 21 at the time of her disappearance, was last seen on a camping trip with a group of friends—including James, who dated Hannah long before he and Maggie ever met. Shocked and heartbroken, everyone on the trip said they assumed Hannah had wandered off toward shore, intoxicated from a long night of partying, and drowned. But the discovery of her body 25 years later, half a mile away from the campsite and buried six feet deep, makes it clear that her death was not accidental.

As the police dig back into the case, Maggie begins her own investigation, desperate to piece together the truth and clear her husband’s name once and for all.

Drivel

Couldn't even make it halfway through this awful story. "I understand why my husband is feeling/acting the way he is, but I'm gonna be upset about it anyway" and loads of "Was I his 2nd choice since she died?" YES, obviously. Either hubby did it so is acting odd, or really loved her so is acting odd. Just, ugh. The main character is so shallow and stupid, I just can't.

Don’t bother

Went back over the same point over and over and over... that she was jealous of a dead woman.

Not a very good story, twist wasn’t exciting, main character was annoying.

Enthralling

I started this intending to listen a little on my morning commute but got so wrapped up in the story that I finished it in one listen. The author tells her story succinctly, which allowed me to get wrapped up in the story but left me wanting more. Some may say it was a little predictable but I enjoyed it. Now I know who to turn to for my next listen!

The performer's interpretation was also wonderful. Her voice was clear and crisp, letting the author's words truly shine. Instead of detracting from the work she complemented it.

At least it was free

The characters were unlikeable while also managing to be uninteresting and the story itself was an unthrilling “thriller” where yet another woman is disposed of like garbage. Even the “surprise” ending didn’t shock me, I was just glad it was done. It felt like a chore to listen to.

Even Free, It's Too Much

What a mess, and an utter waste of time spent listening to the same repetitive drivel. SPOILER ALERT - So, the whiny wife decides to continue on being married to someone who would commit such a violent crime against another woman, simply because she's so pathetic and jealous? And she didn't report the crime? Yeah, sure. I kept thinking he would also strangle the wife in the end. But nope. They supposedly live happily ever after. While I wish I could get my wasted time back.

Not for the discerning

The story was pretty predictable and rather dull. Moreover, (caution spoiler alert) it should be noted that what happened was an incredibly violent act against a woman that was dismissed for convenience. This is very disturbing as well as poor representation —in particular—by a woman author.

Terrible Caricature of Women

This story is nauseating and worse yet, continues to fill our culture with tired portraits of women which perpetuate misogyny and sexism. The longer I listened to this the more disgusted I was with the lead female character who was insecure and threatened by the dead lover of her husband. Her insecurity and jealousy over a woman long dead becomes an emotional driver that cannot be quelled by the reality of the 25 years of a good marriage for fear she is the “second choice”. It is a tired and old cliche of a woman making this story unbearable to listen to with its endless simple and one dimensional characters. The womanizing best friend, the calm perfect husband, the steely detective are boring and predictable male roles and women are portrayed as either insecure or bimbos. The only redeeming factor was that it was free. Terrible

I listened to it all in one day, and really enjoyed it. I have taken a star off for the ending (which was the last 10 mins) and I didn't quite believe... but maybe that's just me 🤔

This is it. Just get to the point

I’m officially convinced that this is it. Keep the book nice and short and get to the point. This story was great I didn’t have to wait for a build up of anything or a disappointing anticlimactic end after hours of enduring a slow burn.

Very sad story.

I really don't think I could have done what the Lead female did after finding out the full truth of what really happened regarding the disappearance of Hannah.
I guess it's just each to his own.

Unoriginal, boring and predictable.

Every plot in this story has already been written in other books or seen in movies.
I found myself fast forwarding the story due to repetitive dialogue and drawn out chapters. A story this short shouldn't be this tedious! The only saving grace is the narrator, TP who is one of the few female narrator's that I like. The exciting twist that I was expecting, unfortunately never happened!

Enjoyable but short

I found this book nicely paced and the narrator was excellent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quick listen. I will look out for the author in future. The only thing I disliked and found unnecessary was the description of food and drink, odd.

disappointing

The narrator was good, the story from the outset was engrossing. But unfortunately the ending was poor it was as if the author just gave up and declared it finished.

Focus on the mystery not the characters

Extremely annoying protagonist. My husband, my husband, my daughter is perfect etc. The ending is quite unique but infuriating because the characters are so hard to like.

And I really wish audio books would go the extra mile and have at least one male and one female narrator so the male characters voiced by women don't sound like Bart Simpson and the female characters voiced by men don't constantly sound like they're whining.

Great short story with excellent narration throughout.
The ending was not what I hoped for though. I picked the murderer and was disappointed at end result. (Can't give too much away)
