Publisher's Summary

This flight will take them somewhere they never expected to go 

Jake Buchanan is a successful writer with an eight-year-old daughter and an imploding marriage. 

Jake knows the woman sitting next to him on his business flight to Denver - he just can't figure out how he knows her. Clara Stowe isn't in Jake's line of work and didn't go to college with him. They have nearly nothing in common apart from a deep and shared certainty that they've met before. As their airplane conversation deepens, both struggle to figure out what circumstances could have possibly brought them together. Then, in a revelation that sends Jake reeling, Clara admits she's traveling to the Colorado mountains to kill herself, and she disappears into the crowded airport immediately after landing. 

The Dead Girl in 2A is the story of what happens to Jake and Clara after they get off that plane, and the manipulative figure who has brought them together decades after they first met. Intensely creepy, beautifully written, and full of Carter Wilson's signature whom-can-you-trust paranoia, this is a psychological thriller unlike any you've read before.

not that thrilling for. Thriller

I think my suspension of disbelief was strained beyond what I could handle. Scientific experiments on children based on no evidence? Familiarization of kids with death with no suggestion of why it was necessary, except to creat a creepy vibe? I have been a research scientist in my day, and this didn't work for me. The villains were obvious and there was nothing really unexpected that happened, except weird stuff that didn't make sense to me. if you can get engrossed in the characters, that might carry you through, but this wasn't my cup of tea. nNo shade on the performances though! Those were professional and enjoyable.

Unusual yet gripping

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was an unusual storyline, and, grasping, for the memories Was most intriguing. It certainly kept me listening to the end.

Intriguing Story Presented Exceptionally Well

Carter Wilson fashions what should be a strikingly implausible scenario involving suppressed memories and human experimentation.. but he somehow makes it easy for readers to set aside reservations. The plotting, pacing, character development, description, and dialogue are far from perfect - Wilson isn't going to win any writing awards - but I found myself captivated by this twisty-turny tale. Even the cartoonish bad guys & gunfights unaccountably fit.

As to delivery: I only have two concerns with the otherwise unimpeachable performance: all three narrators read slightly too slowly (this book is best consumed at 1.15X), and Jennifer O'Donnell - reading the 'Clara Stowe' parts - inspires loudly between sentences (avoid earbuds).
Michael Braun & Jonathan Todd Ross - handling the 'Jake Buchanan', 'Landis Mueller', 'Alexander Eaton', and Third-Person Perspective segments - are nearly flawless.. and Recorded Books sound engineers provide an audiobook that is comfortable to listen to for hours on end.

If given the option to get this book as a text (paper or eBook) or recorded iteration, take this version any day of the week and twice on Sunday. This product rates 9 stars out of 10. I am thrilled that I got 'The Dead Girl In 2A' as a 'Plus' selection - because it would actually merit a Credit.
