I listened to the entire book, but I have to admit that I was bored. It only really got good the last 15 minutes. I thought the book was going to be different. I didn't realize it was a "series" until after I bought it. I'm sure if you liked her other books, you'll love this one. But I won't be buying anymore.
I like Grafton, but this one was boring and some of the scenes were so filled with useless descriptions and scenes such as when she is going around the streets searching for a missing witness. It made me wish I had bought the abridged edition.
A reader from day 1 now a listener too! Remember honesty in a review does help you decide, even if you don't agree!
Another thrilling ride for Grafton fans.....great narration, fast-paced and up-to-80's date with comfortable familiarity, great locale, and a story that wouldn't quit!!! Loved it!
I have read all of her books and this one was awful. Not scary, not interestingly, kinsey was remarkably stupid. The extra annoying part was all of the anti working mother comments from all the characters. Skip it and buy "Restless"
Love reading, hard to find the time! audible member since 2006
Judy Kaye is such a wonderful reader, she can even make "I-who-hates-McDonald's" crave a "QP with cheese" LOL. This is a very clever story and it is nice that Grafton gives enough hints to make it fun to figure out what will happen next, without making it too easy (and consequently boring). I'm 2/3 through and already wishing the book was longer!
I've read or listened to most of the series but this was the best. I literally found ways to listen to it because it truly held my interest all the time!
"Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas,..."
So says the Publisher's summary. Unfortunately, the narrator either didn't read that or just can't make it happen. I have read every one of Sue Grafton's book and love Kinsey Milhone, but I cannot keep up with which character is speaking because almost all the voices are identical, particularly the women's voices.
I think the book may be really good. I am only in about the 4th chapter, but the narration problem has me so irritated, I dread returning to listen to more of the anonymous characters and trying to sort out who is saying what to whom.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
I've ilstened to the whole series and greatly enjoyed it. However this book just wasn't my cup of tea. While the others have been fun, tightly written and fast, paced, this one dragged and was much darker than her previous books. I dn't mind the occaisional heavy story line, but this one just didn't grip me. Knowing the 'bad guy' from the beginning just filled me with dread vs. engaging me. I finished it more to get it done with rather than because I couldn't wait to find out 'who done it'.
