I tend to speed read - get the whole story this way
Audible listener for MANY years. I love mysteries and spy novels, biographies, historical fiction, and many other things in between.
This book kept me both listening and wondering why I was still listening. The story was just intriguing enough that I stuck with it, but still found myself saying "oh please, really?, c'mon". I agree with others, WAY too many other good books out there to spend time (and money) on this one.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
I loved the book, it gave me some answers since I had been listening to the series out of order.
A woman's voice doing Savage? NO, it doesn't work for me! I find it easier to listen to a man doing a woman's voice. There are only a few female narrators that can carry off the part of a strong male character. This narrator wasn't one of them.
I liked this book and found it entertaining and very good. It is a worth your time and money.
This was a big dissapointment. Read like a Mary Higgins Clark with sex and right wing politics thrown in. No plausible plot, no likeable characters and cartoonish villains.
A book lover with varied interests: history, political and technical and economic thrillers, mysteries, crime dramas, futuristic fantasy.
The Maze by Catherine Coulter was entertaining. I found the lead character enchanting. Lacy Sherlock, was smart, accomplished, sweet, and vulnerable. Her singular intention (to catch the serial killer who murdered her sister) motivated her every move. I got involved because for a while I could see things my character couldn't. I felt I had to look out for her; she was naive about some things. Though at times familiar, the storyline had enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested. The happy ending was somewhat disconcerting and just a bit corny. I gauge a book by its unputdownability . Generally speaking, this one was worth the investment of time.
If a Nobel prize for the most unbelievable plot existed, this tome would surely get the prize.
We are to believe that an FBI agent is so poorly vetted that she would be assigned to investigate the serial killer who murdered her sister.
That another FBI agent, her boss falls in love with her and they marry after only a few weeks acquaintance.
That another FBI agent, is so jealous of said boss that she hires a hitman to scare the heroine to leave town so she could have a crack at the boss's affections.
That a "liberal" judge allows a serial killer to be unsupervised and unshackled so a psychiatrist can interview him so he then escapes to go after the heroine.
That a trained FBI agent, who knows the killer is loose, enters her own home after obvious signs that it has been broken in to.
The author must be a FOX news fan as she is always taking shots at "liberal" judges.
I will never again waste a credit on this person's work.
I like Science Fiction, Post Apocalypse, mysteries, and good romance. If you can mix it all in together, I am one happy camper.
When I listen to a book like this, I expect to be entertained and be able to practice some escapism. Instead, I found myself annoyed by the characters and the authors apparent hatered of women. Except for the heroine who is a damaged victim, the author believes that most women are mean, jealous, and/or coniving. And if not they are just plain crazy. In addition the right wing propoganda was just completely over the top. As a liberal I can handle conservative view points, but at least make them intelligent. Creating a simplistic situation that just couldn't happen, and then presenting as a viable reason for you view point is insulting to both liberals and conservatives alike.
Quiet simply, I will never ever buy another book, either in print or audible, from this author again.
