Publisher's Summary

In July 2015, Mary Yoder returned home from the chiropractic center that she operated with her husband, Bill, complaining that she felt unwell. Mary, health-conscious and vibrant, was suddenly vomiting, sweating, and weak. Doctors in the ER and ICU were baffled as to the cause of her rapidly progressing illness. Her loved ones - including Bill and their children, Adam, Tamryn, and Liana - gathered in shock to say good-bye.

In the weeks that followed Mary's death, the grief-stricken family received startling news from the medical examiner: Mary had been deliberately poisoned with colchicine. Another bombshell followed when the local sheriff's office received a claim that Adam Yoder had poisoned his mother. But Adam was not the only person of interest in the case. 

Pretty and popular Kaitlyn Conley, Adam's ex-girlfriend, worked at the Yoders' clinic. She'd even been at Mary's bedside during those last terrible hours. Still, some spoke of her talent for manipulation and a history of bizarre, rage-fueled behavior against anyone who dared to reject her. Had Kaitlyn and Adam conspired to kill Mary Yoder, or was the killer someone else entirely?

Contains mature themes.

Love m William Phelps books.

But this one doesn't work well as an audiobook because it is constantly jumping from present to pay without it being really clear what's happening when... Maybe it's just my brain but it was a challenge! 😉

Too long

The narrator's voice did not match the story. A clearer voice would help.
The story could be shortened. It sounded more like a long Podcast rather than a book.

sad

Mr. Phelps says it all in his closing statements. I listen to a lot of true crime books because they are way better than most fiction! But this one really pulls on my heart strings. plus make me so mad. It is obvious how good of person Mary was. The world is worse off without her in it. The deplorable way she wad murdered astounds me that the imp didn't get the death penalty! or at LEAST Life without the possibility of perole!! She should ROT in jail!! SHAME ON MARY'S SISTERS!!! In the overwhelming evidence of the imps guilt they STILL turn a blines eye!? were they that jealous of Mary?? I feel so sorry for Adam, I pray he is able to find peace in his heart someday. I hope he finds love in a good person and happiness.

Way too repetitive

A droning performance and constant repetition by the author makes a two hour story almost 10 hours long.

Good true crime but narrator could be better

I really enjoyed the story. The narration w as hard at times to listen to. He had such a raspy voice that it made me feel at times I was struggling to catch my breath. It kept distracting me because it sounded so painful when he spoke. I just kept listening because I did enjoy the story

Goes back and forth a lot

I did enjoy this story, but the writer goes around and around a lot. There is a lot of repeating the same thing. I love Danny Campbell narration.

Easy to Follow !

1st Audio for me. Good choice ! Easy to follow. M. Phelps always tells a great story. Unbelievable denial so evident in the supporters. I was left feeling such sadness for Adam.

Book review

Really liked the narrator, reminded me of Casey Kasem. The book was gripping, respectful to the Yoder family and told of this amazing woman Mary , who fell into this horrible circumstance. What happened to this family was brutally tragic and in the epilougue spoke of the guilt her son felt and his struggle to this day.
