My wife and I listen to books together during our daily commute. We've been great fans of Jonathan Kellerman. We've run out of good JK books to listen to, so we gave Baldacci a try. We were both really impressed with this book. He really kept us guessing right to the end. No sudden ending here, just a lot of twists and turns. I definately recommend this book. We'll be listening to more Baldacci.
This story was so intriguing from beginning to end. Just when you thought you had figured it all out, there was a new, exciting twist. Scott Brick is an amazing narrator and his Southern accent was entertaining. I found myself imitating the accent and enjoying the read even more. This is the first Baldacci novel I have read but can't wait to read more of his work. I loved the main characters esp Michelle and Sean. Please - tell me when the movie is made!
I enjoyed this book. There was a lot of characters in this novel to keep track of, so you really have to pay attention. It pays off, however, because you suspect every one of them. Great fun. This book was better than <i>Split Second</i> which originally introduced us to these characters. Baldacci is bringing Maxwell and King back yet again in his next novel (after <i>Camel Club</i>). That little tidbit of info was gleaned off his website's "ask the author" section.
This book keeps you guessing. Scott Brick's narration is so good it makes the experience much like sitting in a theater, watching this unfold on the big screen. Well worth the download!
Baldacci spins another good mystery here that, unless you have an extensive knowledge of serial killers, you could never figure out. This book is defintely worth the listen, but it does have some long drawn out narrative sections that are a little boring. Overall...Good for the ears.
This is the first book I've listened to by the author, and I have to say it was really good. The book is well researched, and has plot twist right till the very end. I recommend any mystery/thriller fan to listen. It's well worth it.
I loved this book. I couldn't put it down and hated when it was over (or actually put the iPOD down). Baldacci leaves a few items for you to figure out on your own. While they are obvious, he doesn't insult your intelligence by spelling it all out for you. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Fantastic book and SO worth the time.
This is a decent story however there are definitely a few issues, the first being the narrator. He was not able to switch between characters smoothly and after a while, his bad southern drawl and irritating voice began to grate on my nerves. Luckily at that point the book picked up. The women characters are needy and overly dramatic--takes the feminist fight back a couple decades.
From the macabre beginning through a plethera of characters, victems, motives and relationships our hero and heroine wade. There are surprise encounters, horrific senerios and ingenious solutions. A story not completed until the "last page". One of the best thrillers in a long while. It made me think, I was involved until the conclusion.
