In his ruthless climb to the top, social-media mogul Jake Sarnoff has left a trail of overlooked, objectified, and oppressed women behind him. First, there was Samanta, whom Jake charmed in college and then forced out of the company she helped build. Then came Anna, Jake’s first wife, who unfailingly supported his dreams for 17 years before he left her and their two sons. Now Jake is married to Jessica, whose youth and beauty are still not enough to stop him from straying, though she sacrifices everything to give him a picture-perfect family. Just when Anna and Samanta decide to bring Jake to justice, Jake and Jessica’s infant daughter goes missing, and the women must join forces to find her. Dunlop (We Came Here To Forget) crafts a compelling family fiction about misogyny and manipulation. Narrator Frankie Corzo offers minimal vocal variation between the female leads, making them difficult to discern, but her performance of the intricate narrative is engaging and exciting.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking dramatic domestic fiction melded with a thought-provoking thriller. Recommended for fans of Laura Dave, Cate Ray, and Robyn Harding.
