Fiction • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Liz Nugent's debut novel is masterfully crafted to unwrap the mystery of what would compel Oliver, a famous author of children's books, to engage in savagery and deception that climaxes in his final brutal act of beating his wife, Alice, into a coma. Oliver's story is expertly and chillingly narrated by Sam O'Mahony. Each chapter of the book provides the perspective of Oliver himself or an individual who has known him over the years. In sharing their stories, these secondary characters attempt to shed light on Oliver's shocking behavior. The secondary characters are portrayed by a group of outstanding narrators whose voices, accents, and pace embody their personalities. The result is a totally engaging listening experience.
