Mystery & Suspense • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator William DeMeritt is the perfect match for this compelling audiobook--a mix of legal thriller and family drama with a touch of sci-fi. The story unfolds in two timelines. In 2008, 16-year-old Wesley Keener is frozen in time after a neurological procedure leaves him a hollow shell. Jay Shenk, a malpractice lawyer, befriends the family and sues the hospital, kicking off a complicated investigation. In 2019, Shenk is again hired by the family, this time to defend Wesley's father, who has been charged with having murdered the medical expert from the original trial. The storylines alternate as the truth comes to light. DeMeritt expertly captures the cast of characters and their traits: quirky, dark, passionate, and desperate. Listeners will think about this fast-paced and twisted story long after finishing it. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
