Who Killed Jane?


Loved it! 😍

A creative storyline with solid suspense and an intriguing plot, and an ending I didn't see coming.

John Markowski’s Who Killed Jane? was a bit of a slow starter for me. I don’t know if it was the pacing or that I’m not all that familiar with the workings of a podcast, or maybe a combination of both, but the first 20 percent or so of this one was slow-going. That said, things did start to pick up as I started to get invested in the story, the cold case, and JT Stowe. He’s certainly in a position that most of us can relate to. I know I’ve been in jobs that I wasn’t crazy about and probably would’ve been happy to get involved with solving a cold case to break the monotony of a boring job. Once the story and its characters had me hooked, I found it hard to put down. The mystery kept me engaged, and the characters were interesting. I even found myself getting more and more interested in the world of podcasts, and I’m intrigued enough that I’ll be making time to check out a few.

All of that is enough to win me over even with the slow start, but when you add in the many twists and turns of the story and how well it’s plotted, this one moved up a few notches in my opinion. Then, we come to the conclusion, and even with as many mysteries as I read, I did not see this one ending as it did. In fact, there were a few things in Who Killed Jane? that I didn’t see coming, and that doesn’t happen often.

To sum it up, we have a creative storyline with solid suspense and an intriguing plot, so if you’re like me and feel like things are moving slowly in the beginning, keep pushing forward. You won’t regret it.
