Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Tim Johnston

Narrated By: Xe Sands, R. C. Bray

Publisher: HighBridge Company

Date: January 2015

Duration: 11 hours 33 minutes


From the day Caitlin vanishes the lives of her family members are irrevocably altered, each assuming blame for that day's tragic events. As the initial days of hope are replaced by weeks of anxiety and despair, they find themselves increasingly isolated, each wondering: Is she still alive? Will we ever know what happened?

Pursuing every angle and refusing to surrender the belief that his daughter is still alive, Caitlin's father struggles through the mountainous terrain, prodding both his son and the local authorities to keep up the search. It is through a most unlikely source, however, that they finally find an answer, in a climax that is stunning in both its execution and resolution.

Written with precision and elegance, Johnston captures characters' emotions, divergent thoughts, and moments of bleak loneliness as they search for answers. Descent is both a taut and gripping thriller and a work of outstanding literary merit, a combination of great story and beautiful writing that is certain to garner comparisons with the work of such bestselling writers as Cormac McCarthy and Dennis Lehane.

    Surprising. Difficult to understand the voice of the character, easy to get lost unsure what is happening. Almost didn't make it to the end, enough to keep me going. Then it all made sense at the end. Worth listening to.

    My husband and I recently started listening to audiobooks while traveling. This one was our fourth and favorite. We absolutely loved this book. The story line was done very well, the narrators were excellent and put a great deal of excitement into their reading. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and was anxious to get back to it each time we had to stop it. It's exciting, holds your attention, the characters really come alive and the readers keep you on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend this audiobook!

    This is a fantastic listen. It's a tense and wrenching book with a steady pace and tremendous attention to the inner lives of the many characters involved. Highly recommended.

    Great read! Was a little comfused for awhile what was going on due to the narrator's voice and charachter switches. Once I got back on track, I couldnt stop listening. I definitely reccomend this book.
