I do a lot of audio books and this one definately belongs in the bottom 5%. The plot is thin, poorly developed and highly improbable. The characters bare no resemblance to any one might encounter in the real world. I will never buy another book by this author.
I loved the narration of this book. In fact, that's what kept me going. I realize the author is beloved, but so much of the plot seemed to rest on really stupid decisions by the characters, especially the main character who put herself in incredibly dangerous positions and was so impulsive. Actually, a speech by Benny/Bennie at the end was right on point...that she was too impulsive to be a reliable partner...but that was after hours of listening to Mary and The Girls acting brainless...most of the time.
I've read or listened to all of Lisa Scottoline's work and I'd stick this one someplace in the middle. She's great at developing characters and coming up with fun story lines, I just thought this one wasn't quite as exciting as her other ones have been. I'm glad that the law firm girls are back though!
This book is very entertaining.
Sometimes I find myself laughing out loud at the main character. Occassionally there are some dramatic wonderings on her part that appear to be just to make the book longer. "Where was Trish...." But over all it is good entertainment.
