Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Bedford Lloyd

Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Patterson's thriller, his best to date, has it all—including a superb narrator in John Bedford Lloyd. The complex story involves two military families who are coping with post-combat stress and its effect on their family members returned from the war in Iraq. At the heart of the story is Brian McCarran, who is accused of killing his commander after having an affair with his wife. But there's much more to this story, and Lloyd is adept at portraying the numerous characters involved. There's Brian’s straitlaced father, who is also the Army’s chief of staff, and Brian's sister, who begins a relationship with his defense counsel, Terry—a terrific lawyer. Lloyd is at his best in the multiple courtroom scenes as he differentiates the numerous characters. This is a real winner, thanks to both writer and reader—as well as the bonus of an unexpected ending. A.L.H.
