The darkest secrets we keep even from ourselves...

Mary Austin is the kind of teacher that parents adore and children wish for. Firm and compassionate, a guiding light in their lives, she would do anything to protect her students. But that loyalty is tested when the school's sadistic bully is found dead on campus and suspicion falls on six children in her class, none willing to talk, point the finger, or reveal the killer.

Faced with this, Mary finds herself confronted with dark memories from her own childhood. Fragmentary flashes of scenes from the past begin to test the bounds of her reality. With the onslaught worsening, a tenacious detective is brought in to close the case.

On loan from the Seattle Police Department, Detective Dooley Ashe is plagued by his own demons, but focuses on breaking through the wall of silence the children have erected. Up against a town indifferent toward the crime and suspects virtually untouchable by the law, Dooley turns to Mary as an avenue to the truth.

As an unlikely closeness develops between Dooley and Mary, the suspected children close ranks, worried that one of their own is ready to break and give the detective what he wants. But when unseen adversaries push back, with both damaging and deadly results, Dooley and Mary are forced to face their personal limits as they each discover the unthinkable identity of the real killer.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Reicks | 1/8/2014

    " The storyline was fairly good and fast-moving (sometimes to the point that there appeared to be fragments of stories left from time to time. The end was very disappointing. Unfortunately I can't say why without putting in a spoiler. I felt very let down at the end of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 1/5/2014

    " Not fabulously written, but a compelling story. I saw some of it coming, but I didn't care. A fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 1/4/2014

    " The premise was disturbing to me, but this had me riveted from page one. Although I was able to correctly identify the killer early on, the plot still had twists and surprises to keep me intrigued right through to the last page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marybeth Kobland | 12/30/2013

    " Good story, keeps you guessing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 12/12/2013

    " Great Book. Once you get into it and you get hooked. couldnt put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Patterson | 11/26/2013

    " All For One is a completely different type of murder mystery. You'll find yourself being drawn into the characters and cheering for the underdogs even as you stumble into one twist after another. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandie | 11/17/2013

    " This is a good book. It shows what can happen when bullying occurs. Is there a right/wrong way to handle/deal with it? Read it to find out... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 11/7/2013

    " Excellent character-driven thriller. It's a dark story and can be disturbing at times, but such is life. I would certainly recommend this to others and I'm going to check out some other titles from the author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 11/2/2013

    " This book will make you question all grey in life!! You will want all the "grey" to become either "black" or "white"!!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charlotte | 10/5/2013

    " The idea of the book is intriguing, but the execution of the story is lacking. There are odd and intrusive descriptions and long passages that do not really add to the story. It goes on for quite a long time once you figure out what is going on, and waiting for the end is almost interminable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine Mccown | 10/5/2013

    " Kept me up at night reading, the writer kept the intrigue going right to the end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Malinda | 9/18/2013

    " It took me a while to get into this book. But it got better, so it barely makes it a 3. Maybe a 2.75 ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri Morgan | 9/13/2013

    " What a fascinating, unique, enlightening and highly original thriller. Pearson's characters were well developed and believable. The plot was intriguing, and full of twists and turns. It had me guessing until very near the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 7/23/2013

    " Good thriller, nicely creepy and gradually revealing: fifth graders implicated in a murder prove to be bright and introspective. Shades of Lord of the Flies darken the background of this insightful reminder than kids are deeper than we think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 7/7/2013

    " This book was very suspensful, and more than a little disturbing. Never saw the ending coming! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kay | 1/23/2013

    " creepy, psycho kills bully at school "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth Bell | 8/2/2012

    " Very hard to follow at times. The "voices" come across as nonsense most of the time and don't read well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frances Winslow | 7/15/2012

    " Although it was anything but an uplifting read, I was compelled to keep turning the pages. Very dark... about sexual molestation, murder...A group of 11 year olds have a dark secret... It's an escape read..as stated before..not at all uplifting, downsliding would be a more appropriate description. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 7/14/2012

    " The twists in the plot were kind of obvious and way too much chaos going on with characters' internal monologue. Plus it's a dark subject which I knew off the bat but the combination was pretty bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 5/14/2012

    " A great thriller/suspense. This book definitely had me captivated from the beginning. Quite a few twists that went well written this story. Well written. A great story. Great characters. Overall, All For One is a must read. I had a hard time putting it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Messersmith | 5/11/2012

    " This is a book that blurs the lines between right and wrong. Sad but riveting. I couldn't put it down. I'd recommend it, not sure if this is a good read for parents though- kids being treated horribly by another kid all through the book but mostly through flashbacks. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 4/25/2012

    " From my kindle-glad I did not purchase the book. It was a free download. Liked it to start, soon figured out who had done it, and finished it only to say I finished it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki Scullion | 4/19/2012

    " Despite suspecting the identity of the murderer from the beginning, the character development and action sequences in this book were enough to keep me hooked until the end.This psycho-thriller was mostly fast-paced and always interesting. "
