I listened to the unabridged audio version of The Red Ledger by Meredith Wild and narrated by Jennifer Mack and Brian Pallino. Listening time for The Red Ledger by Meredith Wild is 3 hours, 26 minutes.
The Red Ledger by Meredith Wild is the first book (novella really) in the 'Red Ledger Series' and it is a thriller. I enjoyed the narration of this book by both narrators. The characters and the storyline are good as well.
The biggest issue for this novella is the cliffhanger ending. I am not a fan of cliffhanger endings in books, especially for books that are part of a series, as I feel like they are gimmicks to hook readers into buying the rest of books in the series. Otherwise The Red Ledger by Meredith Wild was an engaging read from start to finish.
Below is the plot summary for The Red Ledger by Meredith Wild from Audible:
He’s death for hire…
Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.
She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.I am giving The Red Ledger by Meredith Wild a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!
