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.

Short but good

I appreciated this, as it was a good and interesting story, but quickly sorted and wrapped up, with no unnecessary characters or complications.

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.

Good story!

When I noted that this was a short story, I hadn't expected it to be as interesting & engaging as it turned out to be. Slightly predictable but certainly a must unusual ending. I would recommend it.

Entertertaining short story

Good build up of characters, great outlining, although it jumped quite quickly into the main story (why would the wife go searching for her husband's friends the very next day the police arrive?)
it works, it unfolds well, most characters behave realistically.

Terrible

Boring and predictable storyline, characters with no depth at all. I know it’s a short story but it really wasn’t well written at all, not worth anyones time

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.

Probably my favorite audible original so far!

A good murder mystery & short listen. I started & finished it in a day, & definitely enjoyed it.

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

This was amazing!

Short but GREAT! I was hesitant but I enjoyed the characters and found myself wondering what to believe. It all made sense in the end and I'm glad I took the journey.
