"Hello Darkness, my old friend."

Book 7 in the stand alone series based around the Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane, and, like the earlier books, atmospheric, unexpected and with good characterization.
Jake Edwards is a pretty ordinary guy with commitment issues. Already in his late 40s, he runs his own excavation business, employing several men and Barbie, his 50 something motherly secretary receptionist. On the first anniversary of his most recent relationship, an unknown woman comes to his office, introducing herself as Petra and asking if he remembers her. He doesn't, and is shocked when she tells him that they were close childhood friends whilst resident at the Northern Mitchigan Asylum as he has absolutely no memory of ever having been there. He suspects that someone is playing a prank on him - until Petra's apartment is found awash with blood, and she had disappeared. Under possible suspicion of murder, Jake investigates. Meanwhile, a second story runs alongside that of Jake's forgotten past, the two coming together later in the book.

Alan Carlson, who narrated, gives a fine lerformance, his reading clear, well modulated but unintrusive, without over emphasis, letting the reader fill in the emotional content of the text. His background approach somehow emphasises and makes all the more dramatic what is written. He also gives individual voice to each character.
From the domestic normalcy of the opening to the violent finale, this book maintained my interest and involvement. Well written and expertly read, this was a most enjoyable book. My thanks to the rights holder of Let Her Rest, who, at my request freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom. Recommended even to all who enjoy murder mysteries even those who are usually somewhat wary of the inclusion of the paranormal, this book has a fine, chi!long presence throughout combined with a normality which firmly grips the reader's attention and immagination. as one of the characters comments, "More complex than an Agatha Christie novel".
Good writing and fine narrating.
Recommended.

As always, fantastic story

As with each book in this series, this story was amazing.

Jack and Charlie are really good characters, and I really enjoyed the way in which their stories get intertwined. And having back some of the characters from the previous books was a wonderful bonus.

As always, the story is full of tension and very, very intriguing. While we are learning about Jack's childhood and which was his relationship with Petra we also are trying to learn what happened to her and what happened to them both in the Northern Asylum.

Charlie, on the other hand, is trying to learn about her new house and the spirits that haunted it, but that isn't without danger.

A real page-turner, wonderfully narrated by Alan Carlson, fully recommended.

Good book in a great series

A man gets a visit from a woman from his past he can't remember. Before he knows it, she disappears and he gets entangled in a web that started in the past he can't remember. As he pieces it all together, terrible truths are revealed.

This was a fascinating listen. I absolutely loved the build up of the story and the development of the characters. I really liked Norm, he was such a refreshing and real character.

The narrator was good, portraying the characters and emotions well.

While I liked this story overall, it wasn't my favourite in the series. I liked the book and story, just not the end. I still love this series and will be eager to listen to more.

Note: this book was given to me for free at my request and I have left this objective review voluntarily.

good listen!!

I really liked this story. It has a fresh take on the asylum tale. Before you know it, you get really sucked into it. I actually enjoyed the characters as well.
I had no idea this was a series, and will be definitely checking out more of these books.

Narration was very on point. and I would listen to Alan Carlson again.

Seventh

I totally enjoy this series as each one can be standalones and a paranormal thriller. In this book Jake is contacted by old friend Petra from his younger past which he cannot remember. She goes missing and he meets Norm which the cops believe they are involved. He also goes to hypnotist that Petra went to and finds out his past and about Maribelle. He meets Charlie who has been seeing ghost in her new house and they become an item. Just listen, cannot wait for next one.
