Summary
'Reader Vacker does a remarkable job voicing the main characters and keeping the tension high....Mystery and true crime fans will be drawn in and ultimately satisfied by this complex, tense tale read expertly by a talented narrator.' - Booklist

'[Karissa] Vacker switches easily between the higher female voices and the lower male voices, creating recognizable and believable characters.... Listeners will enjoy a gripping and twisty story.' —AudioFile on Earphones Award winner A Flicker in the Dark

Following up her instant New York Times bestseller, A Flicker in the Dark, Stacy Willingham delivers a totally gripping thriller about a desperate mother with a troubled past in All the Dangerous Things.

One year ago, Isabelle Drake's life changed forever: her toddler son, Mason, was taken out of his crib in the middle of the night while she and her husband were asleep in the next room. With little evidence and few leads for the police to chase, the case quickly went cold. However, Isabelle cannot rest until Mason is returned to her—literally.

Except for the occasional catnap or small blackout where she loses track of time, she hasn’t slept in a year.

Isabelle's entire existence now revolves around finding him, but she knows she can’t go on this way forever. In hopes of jarring loose a new witness or buried clue, she agrees to be interviewed by a true-crime podcaster—but his interest in Isabelle's past makes her nervous. His incessant questioning paired with her severe insomnia has brought up uncomfortable memories from her own childhood, making Isabelle start to doubt her recollection of the night of Mason’s disappearance, as well as second-guess who she can trust... including herself. But she is determined to figure out the truth no matter where it leads.

A Macmillan Audio production from Minotaur Books.

I loved this book. It was very well written, and the narrator did an amazing job with different voices. I enjoyed the surprise twists. Great ending. I saw a few things coming, but not the ending. I am happy I chose this one.

I really liked book (audio). It was very entertaining. I thought I knew who the kidnapper, but I had to change my theory. The narrator was good as well, not monotonous or sounding as though reading aloud is not their fortay.

Overall satisfactory However crimes in the books have not been thoroughly researched and would not be investigated as depicted in the book.

Amazing. Hard to listen to some points but necessary. It’s worth it. Author’s note was definitely a heart squeeze, esp to the women out there. ❤️

I enjoyed this book! There were plenty of mysteries to keep you guessing throughout the entire story. The narrator was good, however, she often spoke in a whisper that was hard to hear. I had to turn my volume up much more than usual and still had a difficult time hearing her at times.
