    For Quentin Garrison, his podcast, entitled Closure, is truly about just that--closure. It centers on a series of murders in the 1970s committed by teens Gabriel LeRoy and April Cooper. The victims included Quentin's mother's little sister and his grandmother. As a result, Quentin has ...

    A middling thriller that pulled too many punches for my taste and relied a tad to heavily on concepts like "everyone's really into true crime podcasts now!" to take the place of a clever, edge of your seat story, which this definitely had the potential to be. A podcast producer beg...

    Website columnist Robin Diamond is shocked when crime podcast producer Quentin Garrison contacts her and implies that Robin's mother was involved in a couple of murders back in the 70s. Robin is quite sure that this is impossible, but she can't help wondering why she knows so little ab...

    I became a huge fan of Alison Gaylin's when I read her novel What Remains of Me, my adoration only grew when I read If I Die Tonight and now, Never Look Back has turned me into a raving super-fan. Gaylin does an excellent job of driving the plot, creating true suspense and tension and ...

    2.5 stars. Another true-crime-podcast book that doesn't really have much to do with the true crime podcast phenomenon. While it doesn't have transcriptions of a podcast (phew) it does have a much worse and completely unnecessary device that continues throughout the book. The jumping be...

    Talk about complex family dynamics! After finishing, my head is still reeling and I need an index of all the characters. While I did have most of the story figured out I still managed to stay engaged the entire way through. I think that says a lot about the strength of writing and I?...

    3 STARS I had high hopes going into this book, but it kind of fell flat for me. Although it didn?t live up to my expectations, there are still many things I enjoyed about this book. The first third of the book was so incredibly fast paced and I was hooked right from the beginnin...

    Wow! Just flipping wow! This book captivated me from the very first page and never let up. Sometimes a book starts out with a bang and you think that surely the author will not be able to keep up that type of intensity all the way through the book, well this one does. This book was not...

    4...Nothing like this novel to make any family seem normal! I mean what the hell??? So much going on...so many twist and turns. Even if some are easily figured out a couple were illusive! Unhealthy friendships and relationships...mental health issues at their scariest! ...
