  Publishers Weekly Review

Kevin T. Collins brings plenty of energy to his reading of this latest offering from Patterson and Ellis. Journalist Ben Casper is paranoid and obsessive, and chief among his obsessions is the beautiful, but unobtainable, woman of his dreams, Diana Hotchkiss. When Diana is found dead, after a fall from her high-rise apartment, the authorities deem it a suicide. But Ben is convinced that her death was really murder and sets out to prove it-only to discover that Diana was leading a double life. Kevin T. Collins hands in a first-rate performance in this audio edition. His narration is well paced and crisp, and he skillfully captures the essence of Ben's character. Collins manages to deliver thrills and plenty of fun in this audiobook that will appeal to listeners who don't need to take their thrillers too seriously. A Little, Brown and Company hardcover.
