Description

From T.M. Logan, the bestselling author of Lies, comes 29 Seconds, a sensational new thriller that explores what happens when a split second thought of revenge takes on a life of its own. "Give me one name. One person. And I will make them disappear." Sarah is a young professor struggling to prove herself in a workplace controlled by the charming and manipulative Alan Hawthorne, a renowned scholar and television host. The beloved professor rakes in million-dollar grants for the university where Sarah works-so his inappropriate treatment of female colleagues behind closed doors has gone unchallenged for years. And Sarah is his newest target. When Hawthorne's advances become threatening, she's left with nowhere to turn. Until the night she witnesses an attempted kidnapping of a young child on her drive home, and impulsively jumps in to intervene. The child's father turns out to be a successful businessman with dangerous connections-and her act of bravery has put this powerful man in her debt. He lives by his own brutal code, and all debts must be repaid. In the only way he knows how. The man gives Sarah a burner phone and an unbelievable offer. A once-in-a-lifetime deal that can make all her problems disappear. No consequences. No traces. No chance of being found out. All it takes is a 29-second phone call. Because everyone has a name to give. Don't they?

Professional reviews

"Katherine Littrell's exceptional performance transforms this dialogue-rich #MeToo novel into an audiobook that shows how a skilled narrator can create memorable and, at times, contemptible, characters that raise a book to a higher level. At the center of this story are Sarah, a young professor who is trying to move up the academic ladder, and Alan Hawthorne, the charismatic department chair and TV personality whose lascivious sexism dominates every interaction he has. Hawthorne threatens to destroy Sarah's career unless she succumbs to his advances. At the same time, Sarah thwarts the attempted kidnapping of a young child whose appreciative father, as a thank you, offers to make one person disappear from her life. Sarah reluctantly agrees. From there, Littrell's presentation goes from great to greater. She imbues Hawthorne with nuanced levels of creepiness, while allowing Sarah's emerging confidence to subtly develop. D.J.S.
