    Get ready to listen to this one, you will not be able to put it down once you start. Masterfully written, Dwayne Alexander Smith has fabricated a story to keep you on the edge of your seat, high in suspense and anticipation. Steven and Nicole’s daughter has been abducted, and when found buried, the two must find a way to come to terms with their lives. Steven cannot let it go and when given the opportunity to meet his daughter’s murderer, he takes it. Little does he know how this will change his life. From the very first scene, I was riveted to the book, each one adding more excitement and mystery as it continues. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, something would change and my mind would race leaving more questions unanswered. So much happens, and Smith leaves you asking the questions of what you would do in this case. Would you go as far as murder to get justice for your child? Would you put the future of your family at risk? How far would you go to find the peace you are seeking? I could fully understand the journey Steven was on, wrenching with his own guilt,as he is trying to seek the justice for his daughter. Each step he made is one I could understand, which is what made this book so much more powerful. It’s heart-stopping tension and a book you will not want to miss. With so many twists and turns you will want to listen til you have the answers he seeks. The question is, will it be enough?

    Tom Jordan masterfully narrates this story with gut wrenching emotion. He becomes Steven, taking the book to it’s full potential and creating each scene so you can see it as a movie in your mind. It’s one of the best of the year, and a narration I will listen to again.
