The intrigue is back with all the twists on the murder plots. The revenge motive has you on Cora Rinker's side until you are jerked back to the cold blood that runs in her veins. And it is always a pleasure listening to Richard Ferrone.
Audible is my lifeblood when driving, doing menial labor or anything else. I love it!
Quite a ride. Getting the next one right now. Lucas is cool but our reader is my all time favorite. I'm looking for more books he narrates.
This novel is a follow up to Certain Prey and is best read after that novel but can be read stand alone. This novel takes Lucas away from the twin cities and the usual cast - there is very little of Del, Sloan and Cheryl but plenty of good characters from Certain Prey make a return and a few new ones as well.
This novel is in a way an end to the first half of the Lucas series as it will see him transfer from City cop to State cop, last novel pre-marriage and second child and is a good farewell to this part of Lucas' journey.
Sandford is my favourite crime writer and I am really enjoying going back through the older stuff. There is such a strong arc for Lucas and each noel builds a little without making him superman.
I really like the Clara Rinker character and how she continues to deceive Lucas. She does it multiple times in this book. The twists and surprises were abundant with a great climax. Just loved it.
A complex story with likable characters, humor, suspense and a little pathos. There is none of the macabre that Sandford often employs which for me is an improvement.
