Book Overview

In this gripping, fast-paced new standalone thriller from USA Today, IndieBound, and #1 internationally bestselling author Charlie Donlea, a TV news host sets out to uncover the truth behind a gruesome tale of sex, betrayal, and murder twenty years after the investigation was abandoned in the wake of 9/11.

Avery Mason, host of American Events, knows the subjects that grab a TV audience's attention. Her latest story--a murder mystery laced with kinky sex, tragedy, and betrayal--is guaranteed to be ratings gold.

Twenty Years Later was a great film. A fast-paced and twisty thriller with a strong edge. The ending was also very much in keeping with the Blairs' philosophy of "living the good life."
   Un-put-down-able!! No lie!!!
This was so full of twists that I literally could not wait to get back to it when life and responsibility intervened, she said. It's the mystery of a Bernie Madoff swindler, his compounded disappearance with the events of 9/9, and that is just the bare bones as the story follows his daughter as she begins to look for a sensational story with which to begin her second season as the head of a newsmagazine TV show. There is so much more to this book than meets the eye. The addition of the connection with Jamaica was just gravy on the biscuit for me as my family has been going there for vacations and weddings for many years and know the people there to be as wonderful as the few we meet in this book! Absolutely great read. Can't wait to read more by this inventive author!! It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   It took a long time to get there but it was worth it
The storyline seemed to drag for the first 12 of the book -- an investigative journalist in California, hiding her past because her dad was a fraudster and had stolen millions from investors. Latching on to a story in New York about DNA identifying one of the victims of 911, and wanting to do a story on it. He is the prime suspect in the murder of a noted novelist. Once Avery meets up with Walt, they uncover evidence that the crime scene was suppressed by the DA. Then there is that twist at the end.
   WOW Terrific storyline
A great book. To me this book captured my attention, held it, and became 'non-stop' writing, he said. Two very tiny errors about 78 thru were easily jumped over with no distraction or story deviation.
I can't put it down. Charlie Donlea's best work to date. I'll leave it at that, Mr. Caramore said.
   Wow what a twist
Thinking that it was the story, the writer kept going in another direction.
   Too Much Going On
It had all the right elements, but I found it too difficult to read. There was too much going on, too many plot points and no character development, he said. None of the plot twists was as surprising as the finale. Also, I found two grammatical errors in the sentence.
   Wow! I loved this SpellbindIng Tale and Bet You Will Too! Enjoy!
This was an awesome murder mystery by a master of the craft who truly knows how to grab a reader and hold an interesting ride from beginning to the very end. The plot twists and turns were very enjoyable and left me completely satisfied, Morgenthau said. I recommend this engaging tale to family, friends, and others who love a spellbinding story that will leave you entertained from beginning to the very end. I have read all of Charlie Donlea's books and I will never tire of them.
It was a guessing game, even for the most discerning of collectors. This is the first of Donlea's books I have read. Now I have to read them all.
I am thrilled to be working with such a talented writer as Pauley Perrette, said Penguin Random House. It's going to be difficult to top this stunner. I've loved every twist and turn of the show.
