I was SO disappointed that Ms. Barr went down the road of animal cruelty to develop her plot line. I was so sickened I could not even get through half of the book. I truly enjoyed her previous works, but will never again risk reading something so horrible...I am through with her work.
Stupid - stupid - stupid was my response to how Anna handled the inevitable life and death moment that occurred at the climax of this book. Frankly it ruined the book for me – and I’m a big Nevada Barr fan.
Barr again delivers us beautiful vistas, heart-stopping moments, a tender touch and a chilling plot twist that will keep you listening to the very end.
This is the first Nevada Barr book I have Read. I chose it because of the customer reviews. I could not put my IPOd down. It drew you into the story at the very first and when you thought the mystery was solved ther was another twist. It kept me guessing until the end.
My husband and I have enjoyed all of Nevada Barr's previous works although she does have a tendency to overdo Anna's trials and tribulations. However, we found the abuse of the children in this book excessively sadistic. We should have taken the advice of some earlier reviewers.
very good... This was very good read the people and the suspense were good. The only problem with this one was it took a little long to get to the point of the story ,but when I thought about it the author almost had to do that to get the point across, so don't loose interest it comes around.and it's worth the wait...
