About this audiobook

The author of the popular Andy Carpenter series develop the thrills in his first standalone suspense novel.

Tim Wallace's wife died in a New Jersey boating accident several months ago, and the cops suspect Tim murdered her, though they have no real case against him.

Now it's New Year's Eve, and his two best friends and business partners finally convince him to go out for the first time since Maggie's death. At their neighborhood pub just a few minutes before midnight, things in Tim Wallace's life go from bad to worse.

"Can you keep a secret? A really big one?" a drunken stranger asks him. Before Tim can say anything or turn away, the man says, "You know Kinnelon, New Jersey? I murdered someone there. A girl...three months ago. I feel much better now. Now it's your problem." And he walks away.

When the man turns out to have been telling the truth, Tim's life is put under the microscope by the cops, and this time they're not giving up. But neither is Tim. Eventually he realizes the only person who can figure out what's really going on is him - even if it kills him.

    A real page-turner

    The protagonist is thirty-year old Tim Wallace, the owner of Wallace Industries, a small New Jersey construction company. One May afternoon, Tim and Maggie, who have been married for five months, go out on Tim's thirty-foot motorboat. Tragically, the boat suddenly explodes with Maggie on board. Tim miraculously survives but the police suspect him of orchestrating his wife's death. His life is about to become a nightmare.

    There's enough here to make me think that DAvid Rosenfelt may turn into a great thriller writer and to make this book worth persevering with. If you can suspend your disbelief, it's a easy to read page turner than goes down easily.

    Good story and writing. Tim Wallace takes his new bride aboard his boat for the first time. When her new hat flies into the water she begs Tim to retrieve it for her. As he reaches it in the water, the boat explodes, killing the wife. Of course the police believe Tim somehow arranged the "accident", but are unable to arrest him due to lack of evidence. The lead investigator, Novak, vows not to let the case get cold. Less than a year later, Tim goes to the police with a tip about a murder, claiming a stranger in a bar told him where the body was buried. Novak is sure now Tim is a monster and vows to nail him. When an arrest warrant is issued Tim hides from the police and tries to figure out who is setting him up and why. I always enjoy Rosenfelt's writing, as it is easy to read and flows well. I got a little bogged down in this one from the jumping around to different points, and the political sidestory. But the characters are interesting and sympathetic. I would give this one 3.5 stars and recommend it for fans of mysteries.

    I enjoy Mr. Rosenfelt's writing and this was a good combination of government conspiracy and who-dun-it. I miss the sarcasm and wit that is present in his "Andy Carpenter" books, but a good read none the less. I guess sometimes its just difficult when a favourite author strikes out in a different vein

    I guess I've listened to too many of his books lately & this one just got to me with a bad plot hole. Every time I think about going back to listen to it, I don't want to, so I'm going to call it done. Sorry, David. I've liked most of your books a lot.

    My husband and I both read this book, and neither of us could put it down! It takes a few chapters to introduce all of the characters, but then things start coming together and the suspense keeps building. Great escapist fare.

    I really enjoyed this book - a lot. When I was done, I came to Goodreads to rate it and write these notes and discovered that the book was already in my Goodreads list... as a Reject!

    There is a time and place, I guess and this one hit my sweet spot the second time around. I'm so glad I did not check Goodreads first!

    Gave up after 50 pages. It might've been OK to read, but the writing simply didn't capture my attention. It was an easy read though.
