Publisher's Summary

She was the woman he was going to marry....
A man shoots his young wife to death. He drives to a freeway overpass, gets out, shoots himself, and drops 100 feet to the freeway below, crushing a Toyota Camry. Inside is an elementary school teacher named Jacqueline Dwyer, who dies at the scene.
Ty Buchanan is a hotshot lawyer. Jacqueline Dwyer was the woman he was going to marry.
Ty goes into a tailspin. And it gets worse when a mysterious man finds him at the funeral and says Jacqueline's death may not have been an accident after all. In fact she may have been murdered.
Now Ty Buchanan will risk everything, including his skyrocketing career, to find out what really happened to the only woman he ever truly loved. That is if he can stay alive - because someone out there does not want him to know the truth.
From the high-rises of the city's most powerful law firms to the mean streets of gangland LA, Try Dying is a blistering thrill ride in the finest tradition of modern noir.

Edge of your seat suspense

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. The book opens with a brilliantly described fatality which sees the deceased falling onto a passing car. But was this accidental or was there some other design? It draws you in to a well paced and well written book. If you like a Grisham novel you will enjoy this.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked Ty. A decent lawyer, relatively charming, flawed but likeable. His descent into obsession following his fiancées death and search for answers are all brilliantly described and paced in this very enjoyable book

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I liked the start with its two pronged death and whilst I enjoyed the book I also enjoyed the way the author brings all the strands of the story together at the end.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I listened to it in two sittings but had I have had the time I would have done it in one.
