Description

In this new novella from the number one internationally best-selling author of The Sisters and The Murder Rule, Dervla McTiernan, a mother and son fighting to prove her innocence are reunited with an estranged friend—a detective who may hold the key to her freedom—as they’re forced to put their differences aside to uncover the shocking truth behind the crime. 

When Clara Coleman is taken into custody, her teenage son, Sebastien, wastes no time before calling Simon Miller: an estranged family friend and detective in their old hometown of Hartford, Connecticut. Clara’s been arrested for the murder of Rachel Stapleton, a wealthy housewife and prominent figure in Lavender Valley, their well-to-do New Jersey suburb. But she swears she did not commit the crime. 

Simon knows that Clara is not capable of murder and will do anything he can to prove her innocence—he’s felt indebted to the Coleman family since her husband, Will, Simon’s best friend, passed away years before. He arrives in Lavender Valley and hits the ground running on the case. With time, details surrounding the crime as well as the Colemans’ family history are revealed, unravelling the complex web of cause and effect that will finally bring the truth to light. 

Please note: this audio contains strong language, distressing situations and descriptions of violence that some listeners may find upsetting. Discretion is advised.

Disappointed

I had thoroughly enjoyed McTiernan’s series but was very disappointed with this “novela” . The reader did not compare to the one reading the series and the storyline was just too strange and then had a very weird ending.

Great story!

Really liked the story and how it just exploded in the end…
Many have commented negatively about the narration, I actually thought it fit that main character in a way… “I did this and this is what happened “ I didn’t mind it. For the new listeners, I’d go in with an open mind and clean slate, maybe I’m different. See, or rather, listen for yourself.

I enjoyed the story, but disappointed in narration

I enjoyed the storyline of Dervla McTiernan's The Wrong One, but was disappointed this time with the narration. I thought the teenaged Sebastion was good, but the protagonist sounded like a typical old-school cop. The narration of the mother, Clara, didn’t know what h÷e was looking for. At least, I couldn't figure out what he was going for. It's too bad, because I thought the story was a good one.

Your call based on mixed aspects

The narration left a lot to be desired. Simon sounded like he was stating facts, not narrating. When he did Clara…intolerable. The story was good right up to the end… not a fan. Since narration is a large part of an audio book, I only stuck it out because I always enjoy this author. It was spell binding if you could get past the narration…. right up to the end which definitely was a twist.

This is what a good novella should be!

When Sebastian’s widowed mom is arrested for murder, he calls Simon Miller: an estranged family friend who is a Hartford detective. Told from the view of both Simon and Sebastian, this murder mystery is fast-paced and gripping, with a wild ending.

Different

I love all of Dervla’s work. This one was slightly different than her previous pieces and at first I struggled to like it. However I think she’s a fantastic storyteller and a pro for plot twists. I know there are mixed reviews but I really enjoyed this book and thought it had an interesting and cool ending.

What was the author thinking of?

I was a new fan of this author, having read the entire Cormac Reilly series. I felt her writing was getting better with time and then she comes out with this story. The narrators were absolutely awful -especially Michael Crouch who narrated Sebastian. His female voice was laughable (in a bad way). I figured out who had "done it" early on and I could barely finish til the end, but I did. It was like the author had 1 day to hand in her work and had to come up with an ending.
Thank goodness this book was free! It just goes to show you that just because you liked an author's previous work, does not mean the next story will be as good. It makes me think twice about taking a chance on buying books on sale... Especially with Audible's policy to only allow you to return books paid with credits, rather than paid with 'cash'.
No, I don't recommend this book at all. Even with the book being free, it was still a waste of my time.

Narration left a lot to be desired.

Story wise, I enjoyed. It's definitely a twist from many plot lines.
Found the narrators a challenge. Having 2 different voices reading Clairs parts .. didn't help at all. 1 minute, she spoke with 1 accent , the next, she sounded like a whole different nationality.

Nothing about it worked for me….

I’m a big fan of Dervla McTiernan, but how I got through this book, I’ll never know. I guess I just kept waiting for it to get better. The worst thing about it was the narration. It was confusing, and it made both Sebastian & his mother sound like they had mental issues. If the narration had been better, I might have gotten through the book without wishing I’d never started it. I also didn’t find the story believable. I will try very hard not to read a book with these narrators again.

Great listen!

I really liked the narration. The story line was great and kept me guessing until the end.
