Patterson brings readers/listeners
three short stories. Each is co-written with a different author.
The audio version is narrated by three different readers,
as well. The audio version, as a whole, is well done. The
narrations amp up the suspense and enhance each character’s
Lawyer with Robert Rotstein is about a family in trouble.
The lead character Matt Hovane is an attorney. His current
case has him defending his teenage daughter. Halley is accused
of bullying a girl into suicide. Matt’s son is a trouble
maker and brings his own drama to the table. His wife wants
him to win the case no matter what. We witness a father fighting
to save his daughter and better understand his son. The mystery
is well written, and takes all the twists and turns needed
to keep you in suspense. The audio narration is spot on. It
brings out the best and worse in each character.
Night Sniper with Christopher Charles the best of the three
stories. The storyline begins with homicide detective Cheryl
Mabern recovering from an injury and drug abuse. Her ex-partner,
Randy, wants her back to work, pronto. He has a serial killer
and she’s a gifted profiler and negotiator. This one
will keep you on your toes. Narrator, Courtney Patterson,
delivers character revelations and actions scenes perfectly.
Sister with Rachel Howzell Hall is about two sisters and a
dead husband named Kirk. Dani Lawrence is the main character.
Dani’s sister, Melissa, confesses her guilt to Dani,
but detectives are accusing Dani of murder. This one took
me by surprise. Janina Edwards gives a dramatic narration
