About this audiobook

The real Florida lies far from the interstates, where there are no dancing mice, bikini-covered beaches, or shopping malls. If you listen closely, beneath the cries of hungry gulls and the rustle of wind through the palm fronds, you might hear it whisper its secrets.

Lieutenant Evan Caldwell is a man adrift, cut loose from a life he thought he knew. His wife has lain comatose for months, and the accident that put her there has raised questions that she’s unable to answer. Now, with his wife in a nearby hospice, Evan has moved to a boat in the quiet Panhandle town of Port St. Joe, where he works as an investigator with the local sheriff’s office.

Evan’s hopes for peace and solitude are shattered when the current sheriff is found murdered. Worse, Evan’s put in the position of interim sheriff while he investigates the murder of his former boss.

Evan keeps coming up with more questions than answers; questions about what really happened in the dark privacy of the swamp, and questions about what really happened to his marriage and his wife.

As the answers begin to surface, he discovers secrets as deep and twisted as the roots of the ancient cypress trees that litter the landscape - secrets that no one wants revealed.

Dead Reckoning was totally unexpected for me on one hand but totally expected on another. I have read many of Dawn's books (but have not read a book by Dawn and Alex together) and always loved the crazy stories she told, always looking forward to the next one. I had not read this book yet, but listened to the audio version. It was very well written and had me laughing out loud all the way through it. Nick Sullivan did a fantastic job on the narration with great care in keeping the voices of the

I liked Ethan's character and how he was dealing with everything going on in his life. The care he took of his wife after her betrayal was touching and even though he never wanted to be sheriff, he put his all into the job and building relationships with his officers even though they may have resented him. I never thought I would feel sorry for the bad guy, but when it was revealed who killed the former sheriff and why, I did. I enjoyed the process they took to solve the case.
