A new murder, an old murder or suicide, & paternity must be figured out. This is enough to keep you interested without being too much to keep track of. My one gripe is that some assumed paternity without proof. There was only a marriage certificate. I know I'd have wanted a birth certificate from the start instead of coming to that idea later on. This is just one small issue though.

Good story, but...

Five stars for the story, two for the reader. I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't for the reader's unnatural & halting cadence; it's not at all the way people talk. There were several times when I had to interpret what he said because of his pausing at the wrong place.

many twists and turns, keeps you guessing till the end.

One of my favorite narrators

2019 - apparently it's been awhile since I've listened. I forgot how awful the victim was murdered and how evil the murders were.
