Blurb: Life for Dexter J. Daley has never been easy, but he’s always found a way to pick himself back up with a smile on his face. Taken from his home, and the arms of his boyfriend and THIRDS partner, Sloane Brodie, Dex finds himself in a situation as mysterious and lethal as the Therian interrogating him. Dex learns what he’s secretly believed all along: his parents’ death wasn’t an accident.

Discovering the whole truth about John and Gina Daley’s homicide sets off a series of events that will change Dex and Sloane’s lives forever. As buried secrets rise to the surface and new truths are revealed, Dex and Sloane’s love for each other is put to the test, with more than their relationship on the line. If traversing the waters of murder and secret government agencies wasn’t enough, something inexplicable has been happening to Dex—and nothing will ever be the same.


Review – Book: I reviewed the book previously here.

Review – Audio: Just like the book review, the audio is an easy 5 stars. Mark Westfield consistently stays in character from book to book, and I have no trouble following along and knowing which character is speaking. This was a much more difficult storyline to stomach in the beginning, but Mark did an admirable job keeping Dex and his personality front and center, whether he was being tortured or being loved on by sexy Sloane.

It is very rare that I can, or want to, reread a book, or that I want to listen to an audio of a book I’ve already read, but with this series and with this narrator I am always looking forward to the release of the next audio. Here’s to a future of more collaboration between Charlie and Mark. These two are the “A” team and are killing it with consistency, excitement, and non stop action.

Overall Impression: It was amazing!

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*
