    This was a book where you anticipated every turn the author made. As a matter of fact, the author didn't make many turns and in each chapter, you got to the realization that ”Vivian” was just a pathetic victim of today's society. She was being abused by her husband Matt for ten years, yet no anger there. As we traveled from Mi. to Fl. It became more and more arduous to listen to this book. I guess Vivian forgot to tell the author the CIA polygraph employees every 6 most. But, I guess if she had there would be no plot. Whoever provided the previous reviews five stars, must be good friends with the author.

    Best suspense story In a long time...gripping and engaging...well written and wonderfully read

    I am NOT an avid reader. I’d rather cook, bake, craft, spend time volunteering, etc. A book has to be a page turner to keep my interest. Need to Know surely did that and the ending will make you want more!
