Here's an audiobook with all the darkness of a Grimm's fairy tale--and narrator Matt Addis uses his flexible baritone to scare listeners senseless. Marlene is married to Wegener, a master criminal and sociopath. Pregnant and fearful, Marlene steals a pouch of sapphires from his safe and runs for her life. Addis captures her terror as her car slips off a mountain road. He delivers both a mesmerizing character portrait and the grotesque backstory of pig farmer Simon Keller, the Good Samaritan who rescues her. At his farm, Marlene meets his kids (pigs) and Lissy, his monstrous pet sow. Addis also channels the Trusted Man, the cold-blooded murderer Wegener has hired to kill Marlene. D'Andrea's short, intense chapters allow Addis to spotlight the gruesome details in this twisted thriller. S.J.H.
