Publisher's Summary

A male prostitute, a mangy cat, a murder, and an obsession that threatens his career, his impending marriage and his life...nothing is going as planned for Austin Glass.
Austin Glass seems to have it all: a loving fiancée, a future with the FBI, and a healthy-sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world hides a painful past he's buried too deeply to remember, and his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled - until he meets a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.
As events unfold in the biggest case of his life, Austin's carefully planned future unravels, and he finds himself pushed into making quick, life-changing decisions. But can he trust himself or anything he feels, when each event seems to be just a series of volatile reactions?

Fabulous narration by Joseph Northton

Where does Shattered Glass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In terms of performance, I enjoyed this as much as ' Hot Head '. Both narrators enhanced the manic, enthusiastic writing that characterise these books.


What did you like best about this story?

Peter's voice, in particular, but I loved all the voices in this book.


What does Joseph Northton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Peter's incredible voice and order to Austin's chaotic inner voice. I actually enjoyed the audiobook experience even more than the text.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It often made me giggle.


Any additional comments?

Please get the same narrator for the next book!

Why is this book not a top seller?

If you could sum up Shattered Glass in three words, what would they be?

Read Candateshia's reviw.


What other book might you compare Shattered Glass to, and why?

The Psycop books do come close. The sense of humour is similar.


Which character – as performed by Joseph Northton – was your favourite?

Do you even need to even ask? Austin!


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Let me think about that? Did it make me laugh? Yah, pretty much every 3rd sentence was LOL moment. I have no idea how the author managed to get some serious crime stuff aligned with some stand up comedy material but he nailed it. Dani Alexander I salute you,

The cat retrieve scene had me in stitches.


Any additional comments?

Can you plese tell me why Joseph Northton has so far narrated only 2 books?! That guy is AWSOME! This a rare example of a book where characters in early/mid 20s are narrated by somebody who actually sounds age appropriate and not by a middle aged bloke (Scrap Metal - I am looking your way!).
