This audio book is excellent despite the fact that it is abridged. The roller coaster ride and spine chilling suspense packed into only 5 hours makes this story hard to put down. Gerritsen takes us into the mind of the killer, skillfully crafting the bizarre viewpoint of life and the murders. Plenty of twists and turns, The Surgeon, delivers a peek into the mind of a perverse hunter, the prey he hunts, and the cops who are hot on the trail. A brilliant prequel to The Apprentice, where this captivating story continues.
I would definitely listen again. I enjoyed the pace and the plot very much. I'm already listening to book 2!
Probably the pacing
His rendering of "The Surgeon's" psychopathy gave me chills, and I hung on for every scene.
It definitely kept me on the edge of my seat
I love the show so this was a disappointment. lots of stories deal with gender violence bit this was done so poorly. Women are handled and manipulated, demeaned and objectified. Rapists own a women forever. her blood is her essence. Her uterus is her essence. Menstrual blood is a joke that demeans women. Women are in competition for the love of men. men are threatened by women who are successful. Doesn't pass the Bechdel test. Such a disappointment and a discomfort. I love mysteries and detective stories but this is awful.
First book not bad. Hard to see Rizzoli as short after watching her as tall in the TV series. No Aisles yet either but good to see how it all started. Intriguing story line not as easy to guess the villain as some books
Yes interesting character or victim in the doctor. I like to see that women can take care of themselves sometimes.
He did very well. There were a few women in there and I never felt like his characters were too feminine a or masculine. Voice characterizations were good.
Moore seemed like such a positive man. Not many are still good hearted after a major loss in life.
Can't wait for book 2.
