Now You See Her

James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge, read by Elaina Erika Davis. Hachette Audio, unabridged, six CDs, 7.5 hrs., $34.98 ISBN 978-1-60788-685-3

In Patterson and Ledwidge’s bestselling thriller, lawyer Nina Bloom seems to have the perfect life in New York. And she’s willing to lie to anyone and everyone to keep it that way and protect herself and her daughter from her dark past. But when an innocent man is accused of murder, Bloom is forced to confront the life she thought she’d left behind. Elaina Erika Davis’s narration is crisp and well paced; her tempo accelerates during the book’s many suspenseful moments, adding impact to this literary thrill ride. Additionally, Davis provides complex vocal interpretations of the main and supporting characters. Her rendition of Nina adds maturity, sophistication, and emotional depth to the character. And Davis’s choice of a chipper—almost jolly—Boston accent for the book’s villain makes him all the more monstrous. A Little, Brown hardcover. (June)
