I read this book before downloading it for my wife. And while I thought it was excellent, my wife couldn't get past the first disk due to the narrator's voice dropping in volume at the end of many sentences
I normally enjoy Faye Kellerman as an author but found the characters in this book difficult to follow and the story line was slow. The plot was confusing, in my mind, as well. It was difficult to progress through the book and hard to finish it.
I really like Faye Kellerman's writing style and I love the Peter/Rina books. This does not disappoint. I enjoy seeing the characters grow in age and maturity and look forward to the next one!
Late middle-aged constant reader who greatly prefers Audible "reads" to radio. I love all books -- Audible, eReader and print editions.
As other reviewers have noted, the Kellermans are completely enjoyable, and I really would listen/read any of theri mysteries. I always enjoy the interpaly of the detectives personal lives and issues and I know certainly that I am much more understanding of Judaic ritual because of my enjoyment of Faye's books! Having said that, this one was not the best -- too many characters, more than the usual random coincidences . . . I was really more interested in the family's cruise plans than the resolution of the cold case at the center of the book. But that didn't stop me from recommending it to my daughter as a beach-read!
Interesting and a fairly good plot- I could recomment it as good reading.
This book had way too much talking and not enough action. Yikes! I love Faye Kellerman, but come on! I'm near the end and feel like I might as well finish it, but I didn't enjoy it as much as her others. The narrator on the other hand, was just wonderful. He's narrated other books of hers and he's really enjoyable to listen to. Too bad the book was such a drag.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks and I had a hard time staying focused on this book. It was very slow and the narrator didn't seem to fit the part.
The characters are enjoyable and funny. Decker (the main character) is charming and carries the story along with a fair amount of humor and coolness. The story itself isn't the most complicated, but it is an entertaining read (listen) and you'll want to follow it to the very end.
I do believe this book was just not really thought out. Too many characters, just keep it simple is my thought. I do believe it could have been better too.
