About the Author:

Meg Gardiner is originally from Southern California, where she practiced law and taught at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She is the author of five Evan Delaney novels as well as the first Jo Beckett thriller, The Dirty Secrets Club, described by Jeffery Deaver as "A winner all the way." She lives with her family near London.

From AudioFile:

Susan Ericksen's rapid-fire narration perfectly suits the nonstop action in the world of San Francisco forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett. Jo investigates when country singer Tasia McFarland, ex-wife of the U.S. president, is killed during a stunt at one of her concerts. Was it a grandiose suicide, or murder--as one of her songs claims? Ericksen believably lowers her pitch for the well-delineated characters Ace Chennault and Gabe Quintana and uses tonal and dialect variations to help listeners recognize the other characters. She excels at heightening the story's suspense and portraying the tough, whip-smart heroine. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
