Very good story. Great ending. I know I could never keep all my "stories" straight and keep suspicion away from myself so I was a little surprised that the main character was so good at it, especially since he was only a Senior in college.

Darkness in Him, by Andrew Lyons, A-minus, narrated by Christopher Lane, produced by Blackstone Audio, downloaded from

Jake Conason has it all-he’s in a fraternity, a senior and cowtowed to by the pledges in the fraternity, he has a gorgeous girl friend that the other guys would salivate for, he has good grades despite continual fraternity parties, and he’s on the brink of being accepted for law school at Harvard. His path should be set. But he goes to a fraternity party, drinks too
The first half is extremely unpleasant. I almost quit. However, after that point the book becomes a fairly straight forward race to the finish. Even the little plot bump at the end doesn't dazzle.
