Blurb: A male prostitute, a mangy cat, a murder, and an obsession that threatens his career, his impending marriage and his life…nothing is going as planned for Austin Glass.
Austin Glass seems to have it all: a loving fiancée, a future with the FBI, and a healthy-sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember, and his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled – until he meets a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.
As events unfold in the biggest case of his life, Austin’s carefully planned future unravels, and he finds himself pushed into making quick, life-changing decisions. But can he trust himself or anything he feels, when each event seems to be just a series of volatile reactions?
Review: Bunny slippers…they’re baaaack!
Thanks to a friend who loaned me the book Shattered Glass a couple of years ago, I haven’t been able to look at a pair of bunny slippers without fantasizing about seeing a pair of legs up in the air, bunny slippers bouncing merrily off the feet of someone who is being thoroughly….
Well…as you can see, Shattered Glass appealed to me and fed my warped sense of humor. It’s also on my top 20 list of all time favorite reads, and now it’s on audio! Woohoo! Did it meet my expectations? Oh yeah!
Mr. Northton did an excellent job of bringing Austin, Peter, Cai, and even Darryl to life. I love it when not only can I visualize the characters in my mind but can hear them as well. I especially enjoyed listening to the banter between Austin and his partner Luis, absolutely loved the “hump day” quips, and Austin just has a way of putting the “fun” in dysfunctional, so it was awesome to know that the audio version had the power to make me smile and laugh!
To my fellow audio listeners, Shattered Glass is an easily recommendable 5 Star listen. Hopefully, if the sequel ever comes out on audio, Joseph Northton will be chosen to narrate again. I love this man’s voice!
