Publisher's Summary

Thicker than Blood: The Complete Andrew Z. Thomas Trilogy, is now available featuring a goldmine of killer bonus features, including the never-before-released alternate endings to both Desert Places and Locked Doors, which together comprise the length of an additional novel.
Desert Places: A Novel: Andrew Z. Thomas is a successful writer of suspense thrillers, living the dream at his lake house in the piedmont of North Carolina. One afternoon in late spring, he receives a bizarre letter that eventually threatens his career, his sanity, and the lives of everyone he loves. A murderer is designing his future, and for the life of him, Andrew can't get away.
Locked Doors: A Novel: Seven years ago, suspense novelist Andrew Thomas's life was shattered when he was framed for a series of murders. The killer's victims were unearthed on Andrew's lakefront property, and since he was wanted by the FBI, Andrew had no choice but to flee and to create a new identity. Andrew does just that in a cabin tucked away in the remote wilderness near Haines Junction, Yukon. His only link to society is by e-mail, through which he learns that all the people he ever loved are being stalked and murdered. Culminating in the spooky and secluded Outer Banks of North Carolina, the paths of Andrew Thomas, a psychotic named Luther Kite, and a young female detective collide.
Break You: A Novella: Following the events of Desert Places and Locked Doors, Andy Thomas and Violet King are hiding out in the wilds of northern Canada, where Violet has a four-month-old son and a burgeoning romance with Andy. On a cold, rainy night at their cabin in the woods, the promise of an idyllic life that seems just around the corner is shattered when a man from their past, a monster of pure malevolence, returns. What he has in store for them will challenge their understanding of evil and stretch the fibers of their love to the breaking point.

Well written but... yuck!

Where does Thicker Than Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I will compare this book to the other Blake Crouch books I've listened to (Abandon, Run, Snowbound and the Wayward Pines books). I loved all of these books. I think Mr. Crouch is a creative and extremely skilled writer. The previous books were very dark, but there was a little redemption at the end. Thicker Than Blood was not as creative and a little too dark for my taste.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I liked the suspense of the story. Mr. Crouch created so much tension that I had to listen to the end. I did not like any of the characters very much. Also, there were some loose ends. A character hides the dates on a calendar. A striking bully is created in someone's life and goes nowhere. The antagonist is described as having been "recruited to murder" by one character and then turns out to have murderous parents.

What about Eric G. Dove’s performance did you like?

Mr. Dove did an excellent job building suspense in the story. I think the feeling was written into the book, but a good narrator really adds to the listener's experience.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I liked the peace that two wounded characters experienced at an isolated cabin the the Yukon.

Any additional comments?

There was a very clear foreshadowing in the childhood of the protagonist and his twin. Andy remembers an experience when they were little boys. They spend an entire day torturing a lizard. I should have seen how the story was going to end at that point.

great trilogy for the price of one story

although long, it doesn't seem so when listening to it. A good story builds gradually and kept me entertained for hours whilst working away in the garden.

Had to abandon this without finishing

For the first time ever, I had to abandon an audiobook part way through. Just couldn't get into this at all despite repeatedly trying. Found it too sickening (and I'm no lightweight) and the plot far too convulted and tedious to be engaging. Just not for me unfortunately.
