Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
December 2009
10 hours 22 minutes
New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance’s journalist-turned-sleuth Ali Reynolds strives to grant a dying woman’s last request—to find the people who nearly killed her.

When a subdivision-in-the-making goes up in flames, everyone hopes that the unfinished, unoccupied homes will yield no victims. But when an unidentified woman is found barely alive and burned beyond recognition, she is immediately taken to the ER, where she lies for months in a medically induced coma. When she finally emerges from her coma, she is met with a bleak and lonely existence.

Badly disfigured and suffering from amnesia, her recovery is further shattered by a cancer diagnosis. Now with sudden desperation, there are two crucial things she is desperate to discover: who saved her life, and who tried to kill her in the first place. And Ali Reynolds is the only person she trusts to beat the clock.

Maybe it's because I've just finished listening to fabulously written and read Henning Mankell, but J. A. Jance book is atrociously bad. A high-school / young adult fiction level, very patronizing and in a trying-to-be-cooler-than-ice kind of way. I listened to it for ten minutes (10 !) and gave up. I've never given up on a book this quickly, particularly since it takes me an hour to get to work in the morning. This morning I drove in silence. I'd also taken every book by this author that I had in my queue out.

basic who done it type of story. Really enjoyed the heroine main character. Enough action to keep it moving without dragging on too long. Will definitely listen to more of Jance's work.
