BOOK REVIEW: Listen




Voted “Best Place To Raise A Child, the quiet town of Marlo hasn’t seen a violent crime since 1971.......however, that is all about to change.

When a website suddenly appears and private conversations begin to be posted, the town of Marlo becomes divided.  Neighbor against neighbor, husband against wife, parent against child - accusations are flying left and right and no one knows who they can trust anymore.   

Who is behind this website and how are they able to listen in on the town's conversations?  As tensions mount and a murder takes place, the community is desperate to find out who is doing this and why.   

This book is a great example of how you never know what you say in private might come back to haunt you.  Listen was a fast paced, action packed thriller that held my interest the entire time.   The ending surprised me as well and I found myself not wanting to put this book down.  This book will definitely be added to my 2010 list of favorites.   

If you read one book by Rene Gutteridge this year – make it this one!
