Publisher's Summary

Jessica Nagoshi, the beautiful heiress to her father's billion-dollar empire, is being groomed, along with her brother Peter, to take control of Nagoshi Inc. That is, until she is brutally murdered in the greenhouse of her father's extensive Wellesley estate.
Jessica was in her third year pre-law at the prestigious Deane University, and the police enter the hallowed halls of the most expensive college in America to begin their investigation.
Boston criminal defence attorney David Cavanaugh is thrust into this high-society case when James Matheson, a wealthy, connected, but unaffected law student is arrested for Jessica's murder. For in James he sees traces of his younger self - Matheson is dedicated, ambitious, but still idealistic enough to believe that justice will always prevail.
From the outset David is hampered by unspoken alliances, corporate malpractice, love, lust, and a disastrous misplace of trust that will leave his case in tatters. But in the end, nothing can prepare him for the truth - and the diabolical lengths some will go to preserve their life of privilege.

My first experience listening to a Sydney Bauer novel and I really enjoyed it.
It took me a little time to get used to the narrator his voice and speed irrated me initally, but then I got used to it, and the different characters he portrayed were really good.
The storyline was excellent and I liked the characters there was no time to be bored as the story moved on quickly .
I will read/listen to more by this author.

Assault on the Ears

I am compelled to write this review on the awful narrator alone.
I find these books reasonable reading but not fantastic. They are normally a useful distraction however I totally object to having my ear-drums and hearing assaulted. This narrator is horrendeous. Normal listening volume for me (headphones) is around 8 or 9, I had to turn this idiot down to 3. But far worse than that is his propensity to actually SHOUT half of his script causing pain and quite serious irritation. Not just softly shout but screeching at you. This 'Bill' has no skills when it comes to understanding a listener needs. His 'character' attempts are irritating, grating on the ears and downright annoying. I cannot explain strongly enough that this DESTROYS any enjoyment of the book, to have someone screaming stupid accents in your ears. I put up with 12 hours of it but cannot bare to have my hearing and mood ruined anymore. I simply cannot finish the book due to the narrator. Bill, get another job!
