I have been a big fan of Lisa Gardner's and was so thrilled to see she had a new book out. Unfortunately, this book was not her best. I didn't care for the reader as he read too mechanically. The book just didn't have the twists, turns, and excitement of her previous books (i.e., The Survivor's Club, The Next Accident). It's an okay listen, but certainly not worthy of 5 stars.
Love to listen to all books via audible. Member since 07. Listen to 4 to 6 books a month. Retired RN. Excited to be part of a new book club!
My young adult daughter recommended this series to me. We have the same taste and even though I usually don't read "detective" novels, I really enjoyed this one and plan to listen to them all. I agree with other reviewers that the narrator was not right for this book. She didn't have a lot of range. I couldn't always tell who was "talking" or "thinking" but the thrill of the book helped me overlook that. I'd recommend this book.
What is great about this book is the fact that it is a unique. Honestly, I didn't even realize how much I enjoyed this book until it was over. Never experienced that before. Brutal content keeps you riveted in a bystander kind of way.
Even though this is a detective D.D. Warren book, I was hoping the series would be more about the shooter. I will continue to read the series, because DD was one of my favorite characters.
For the story line, I feel the scene where Katheryn broke down in front of her Dad. A lot of family history came into play. It visualized the real "hard decisions" a parent has to make regarding grown children and the tragedy that can cause. One of the deepest parts.
However the romantic in my enjoyed Bobby's therapy sessions and hoped him and his Doc would get together. She was on his side from day one.
Almost. A day and a half.
Great intro into the series, although if the series is about DD I am surprised at the small part she played.
I enjoy crime thrillers the most. I'm always willing to tryout books from many different authors
This was a great read. The characters are well developed and the story very thrilling. I listened to this book until 3am. Couldn't put it down. Narrator was great.
This is my second read by Gardner. She certainly knows how to weave many complicated elements together to create suspense and build anticipation to the climax,
The story was action packed and suspenseful; I particularly loved the scene in the Judge's hotel where Kat and Mr. "B" meet again. Unfortunately, I did not like the narrator; her voice was uncomfortable to listen to and I was not impressed by the character voices, especially Bobby
Lisa Gardener's books are wonderfully addictive from beginning to end. The characters stay in my head long after finishing the book. She is one of my favorites.
