Publisher's Summary

A true crime podcast yields new revelations about a shocking murder in a riveting novel of suspense by Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author Loreth Anne White.

True crime podcaster Trinity Scott is chasing breakout success, and her brand-new serial may get her there. Her subject is Clayton Jay Pelley. More than two decades ago, the respected family man and guidance counselor confessed to the brutal murder of teenage student Leena Rai. But why he killed her has always been a mystery.

In a series of exclusive interviews from prison, Clayton discloses to Trinity the truth about what happened that night beneath Devil’s Bridge. It’s not what anyone in the Pacific Northwest town of Twin Falls expects. Clayton says he didn’t do it. Was he lying then? Or now?

As her listeners increase and ratings skyrocket, Trinity is missing a key player in the story: Rachel Walczak, the retired detective who exposed Pelley’s twisted urges and put him behind bars. She’s not interested in playing Clayton’s game - until Trinity digs deeper and the podcast’s reverb widens. Then Rachel begins to question everything she thinks she knows about the past.

With each of Clayton’s teasing reveals, one thing is clear: he’s not the only one in Twin Falls with a secret.

great story!

The story was compelling and I was totally engaged to find out who the real criminal was. The emotions portrayed brought me to tears a couple of times! I really liked the narrator for Trinity. The woman reading Rachel's role took some getting used to and she wouldn't have been my choice (if I got to pick the narrator), but I got used to her and I enjoyed the book regardless

Voice acting = 0, story = ???

This book is exactly what I want to read/listen to, but I am struggling to even get in to it because the actor voicing Trinity is so very annoying. When she changes her voice to read a male character it it absolutely comical. Probably not what you’re going for in a murder mystery.
40 minutes in and I haven’t given up yet, but I’m very close.
The voice talent can make or break an audio book. This is a break.

WOW!

Excellent! I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

A man admits to the rape and brutal murder of a teenage girl. 24 years later he recants his plea in a podcast. Why would he confess to a crime he didn’t commit? The man has secrets and little by little he’s releasing information that can solve the murder. The podcast is called “It’s Criminal “. The hostess is Trinity Scott. She has secrets too.
One investigator has died of cancer. The other lead investigator is Rachel Hart. She knows there are loose ends but hey, the man confessed. She’s has suspicions but they may be too close to home for her to look into.
As the secrets come into the light it turns out that no one involved with the investigation told the truth. The ending is shocking.
Narration by Lauren Ezzo and Laural Merlington is wonderful.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Chilling, gripping, beautiful

I finished this entire book in one day. I couldn't stop listening. I listened while cooking, doing laundry, shopping, in between meetings. Loreth Anne White's writing is immersive. I was excited about the new book but didn't know I'd devour it like I did. Her writing is so descriptive you can smell the farm, feel the coldness under the bridge, hear the baby's cries. It's a beautifully tragic story with wonderful and important messages behind it. Secrets held inside destroy you.

I liked the narration. I thought both narrators did a stellar job. The one review on here mentions disliking the Trinity narration and that was my absolute favorite. Her voice, tone, and performance were spot on. We all hear and see things differently.

Utterly stupid and silly

My lort, this was a absolutely dumb book. I can understand having to suspend belief, but this book requires way too much from the reader. Twenty-four years of secrets. Bah! Teenagers can't keep secrets for anything. The idea that a cop can work a case where her daughter is a suspect? The idea that you can hypnotize to make them confess to crimes? This level of disbelief has to be held throughout the book as more and more ridiculous notions are thrown at the reader. Honestly, who committed the crime was obvious from the beginning. All the rest of the book was inane silliness to try to trick you or distract you from the plot. Blah!

Don't care for the narrator's.

Almost didn't continue listening to after hearing both narrators. One sounds nasal and the other just isn't pleasant to listen to. Also women doing the men's voices never turn out well.
The story and characters are well written so it seems a shame to scrimp on voices.

Great story. Uneven performance

This is a very good, interesting story. Lots of twists and turns with a good ending.

There are two narrators. One is pretty good. The other is pretty bad. Almost bad enough for me to stop listening. But not quite. Glad I finished.

Every parent should read this.

Too bad middle schools across the land aren't asking permission to use this in the classroom. What a great example of lessons every young person and parent should be aware of.

Excellent and powerful story, a must read!

This story was so well constructed that I was completely drawn in and held there until the very end. The issues raised by the author are important for us all to think about as we may be called on to confront them in some way in our own lives. The writing was powerful, suspenseful, emotional, and heart wrenching. The performance was exactly what it needed to be to keep me enthralled.
