Publisher's Summary

In August 2015, Limerick man Jason Corbett was murdered by his wife, Molly Martens, and her father, ex-FBI agent Tom Martens, in the bedroom of their luxury North Carolina home. He had been savagely beaten to death with a baseball bat and brick while his children slept nearby. For his sister, Tracey Corbett-Lynch, and the rest of his family in Ireland, it was just the beginning of the nightmare that would involve a custody battle for his orphaned children, an online hate campaign by Molly Martens, and, ultimately, the gripping trial that would lead to her conviction, alongside her father, for his murder.

My Brother Jason is the story of how this seemingly all-American girl from a picture-perfect family targeted the widowed Jason Corbett, becoming nanny to his children in a desperate bid to create the family and security she craved, thus setting in motion a series of events that would lead to Jason’s brutal killing by the woman he had once loved.

Here, for the first time, Tracey Corbett-Lynch tells her family's side of the story in a book that contains shocking revelations about Molly Marten's history of strange behavior and the lengths she was willing to go to in order to get custody of Jason's children.

This is how terrible narration ruins a book

I stuck it in there as long as I could because the story was compelling, and it seemed well-written. But oh boy, I just could not listen to this narrator one more second. I made it pretty close to the end and then kept trying to convince myself that it was only a little further, like a runner at the end of a long race. But I hit the wall and had to stop. I can't decide if she had extra spit in her mouth, or if she thinks it's necessary to over-enunciate sounds like the "t" and "s." Did she get some vocal training where they taught her to do that, and then she thought it would be cool to use it on prose? Also, the forced calm, slow voice got to me after a while, but I think I could have stuck it out if it were only that. It was the spitting of those consonant sounds, like needle jabs to the brain.

Writing this before seeing any other reviews

Because I don't like to be influenced by other views and have confirmation bias.

The main problem with this book is the narration. I don't know the nationality of the narrator and it may be that the lilting intonation is because she is Irish but I found it highly irritating. It made sentences sound sacchirine.

The accents were appalling.

I only kept going because I wanted to actually continue with the story.

And now I'm off to see if I was the only one with this critique.

This needed to be told.

I saw the 20/20 special and they really painted it with a Martens family brush. Even watching that special you knew there was a whole lot they weren’t telling us. Without any spoilers this sets the record straight. My only issues (and it’s a minuscule one) is that the narrator could get a little sing-songy (don’t think that’s a word but think you get my drift) at some points but this is very minor as overall she was great. Well done!!!!

Beautifully written and narrated

I really enjoyed listening to this terribly tragic story, the family and friends of the victim seem like wonderful people- very sad circumstances leading to this criminal act by Molly Martens and Tom Martens- they are sick individuals.

Most annoying

The narration was just about the worst I am ever heard. The speaker was obviously trying to imitate an Irish accent, however, she failed miserably, at times she sounded East European, Scottish but never Irish!! Totally ruined what was otherwise not a badly written book

Awful narrator shame you cant give a zero

This sad story deserves a realistic narrator to put across the seriousness of this dreadful crime. Mary Sarah reads it as if she is reading a Barbara Cartland novel. Inappropriate sighs and affectation and for goodness sakes stop her from trying to use accents she has no idea how to use!! Will be requesting a refund on this one!!

Very well written book but only to read.

This is a great book but the narration was really bad. It was very hard to listen to. The fake Irish accent was unbearable as was the overdramatised manner in the way the whole book was narrated. I was going to give up soon after I started it but the story was very interesting and well written.

Narration is terrible

This story is heartbreaking. Tracy and her family went through hell. The audiobook itself was let down by the narration. The attempt at the Irish accent was awful. I even tried to use the speed up function but it did not help. I listened to the end because of the story but it was a struggle to listen to it. This is my first audiobook review. Please buy the book not the audiobook

Excruciating Narration

I wish I'd bought this book in paperback. It's a heartbreaking story that I'd followed and I really wanted to hear Jason's sister's account. However the narrator is so awful I could hardly continue listening after chapter 1 but persevered. Whoever chose Mary Sarah to tell this tragic story should be sacked. What a terrible disservice you have done. MS gave a dreadful Scottish/Indian/East European accent all in a short sentence! And here's a tip, at least have the courtesy of using the correct pronunciation of Irish names and sayings. This needs to be re-voiced, preferably by a Limerick native.

Worst Narrator ever

I can’t even express how much I disliked this narration, the book is written by an Irish person and the accent of the narrator just doesn’t match the story. She read it in a sing song voice and made it sound like such a fiction. As an Irish person it pained me to hear so many words pronounced incorrectly and don’t get me started on the different accents, some sounded Scottish, some that annoying American Irish you hear in movies. The story is terribly sad but the narration ruined the book for me and I wish it had been narrated by an Irish person,
