Sintesi dell'editore

There’s something wrong with this family.

Wes Shaw’s different than his siblings - darker, awkward, the perpetual ne’er-do-well. Mary Shaw’s the doting mother, showering her children with gifts from the heart and the pocketbook.

The Shaws have survived divorce and death, but something sinister is in their midst. The truth threatens to tear them apart. The lies threaten to tear them apart. Which side will each choose?

Adult language and explicit content.

Throughly enjoyed this book!

Great job again Mr. Williams!
It's a peek inside the life a sociopath. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster ride! I really like books that pull you into the characters. I felt real sympathy for Wes, one of the main characters of the book. His journey for truth was exciting, heartbreaking, and enlightening.
The author writes true to real life situations and isn't afraid to offend. I appreciate that in a writer, because life is sometimes offensive. I like it to be told how it is.
The narrators are top notch as well!
Another great book Phil!

Refreshing story line

Great look into the mind of a sociopath and how they blend into society unnoticed. Sociopaths are masters of manipulation and are usually charming and intelligent and more often than not go unpunished for their sins against others.

The author was very accurate in his portrayal of what having a family member who is a sociopath in the family does to a family. A rift is usually the end result because at some point each member needs to chooses to keep drinking the Kool Aid or their own mental well-being. Because with a sociopath, it’s always about them and giving up the Kool Aid is harder than it looks. I have a sibling it took decades to accept is a sociopath; I can’t imagine the damage having a Sociopath for a mother would cause.

Excellent book; well worth the credit.

This story will keep you thinking afterwards

I listen to the Audio book and also re-read some of the passages in the Kindle version.
There is some sexual situation in the beginning of the book but you really need to get past that. This book is well worth reading.
I was a bit disappointed by the ending but only because I wished for a better outcome but I have to agree that the ending is more realistic in real live then the one I would have wished for.
I think Phil Williams does a great job in describing the family members and how they relate to each other. You see Wes slowly becoming the mature adult he should be.

So many issues (and i never write reviews)

Would you try another book from Phil M. Williams and/or the narrators?

Ok so first of all, I never write reviews on here, so you know that I mean business.<br/><br/>Let's start with the narration. The different voices for each family members was a good idea in theory, I'm sure. However, in reality, the voices they picked for Wes' family were just awful. The mother was by far the most annoying narrator.<br/><br/>And the plot. Or lack there of, I should say. I can't figure out why this book was written. Like, what's the takeaway? There is zero climax, and I just kept waiting for something to happen. <br/><br/>AND if you think that's not enough, the book literally skips months at a time but for no reason, just so that different scenarios could happen, like family holidays, etc. HOWEVER, it would be much easier to follow and much more fluid if it was simply written to take place over a much shorter period of time, with flashbacks from each of the characters to build up the story rather than jumping six months at a time.<br/><br/>Warning you so you don't waste a credit.

Would you ever listen to anything by Phil M. Williams again?

Unlikely.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

Definitely not.

What character would you cut from No Conscience?

The ones who were in it but nothing about them got resolved.

I️ couldn’t put it down

I️ really enjoyed how the story took place in an area familiar to me. Maybe I️ am biased but I️ could see the stories characters and places in my mind very vividly. I️ look forward to reading my next Phil M. Williams book.
