Three Weeks to Say Goodbye

C. J. Box, , read by John Bedford Lloyd. . Macmillan Audio, $39.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-4272-0617-6

In this stand-alone thriller set in Denver, Jack and Melissa McGuane stand to lose their adoptive baby daughter to her birth father, a teenage psychopath who never relinquished his paternal rights, and his father, a ruthless, well-connected federal judge. John Bedford Lloyd creates unique voices for every character and fully inhabits the role of narrator Jack, whose naïveté leads him to make appallingly stupid decisions. Lloyd makes Jack believable and sympathetic and prevents listeners from losing patience with his inability to realize just how dangerous his enemies are. The final CD concludes with a 3-minute interview of author C.J. Box. A St. Martin’s/Minotaur hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 17). (Jan.)
