Started out very interesting like her other book "Touch and Go". But it went downhill soon after that. Too many bazzar incidences for reality and in the end they all came together very neatly, not realistic. Very disappointed
Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
This story is one of my favourite Lisa Gardner books. It was interesting from the very first chapter and never lagged. I think Detective DD is one of my favourite characters and she isn't the only major player in this book because there are 3 major characters and each one is very well done. Lots of twists and it kept me guessing throughout.
Wasn't my favorite by her so far, but still a good twist. This is my 4th book by her and so far my least favorite. Still, not horrible by any means.
I forced myself to listen to it and I was beyond disgusted with all the craziness and negative story line. It wouldn't get any better but I made myself listen to it but refuse to buy anymore from this series.
This is the second book I have listened to in the D D Warren series. Both stories have been good but the narration is annoying. The first one just had a bad narrator. This one, even though the narrator's voice is good, she switched from using an acceptable male voice of Lt Bobby Dodge to the same voice as D D Warren. From that point on, all male voices were read in the female voice. Strange.
Fast paced story. I like that they switched between character viewpoints to get a fuller picture and it kept story fast-paced. Narrator was perfect as I had no problem distinguishing between characters, even during quick interactions.
I listen while I work so I need things that are engaging but not overly complex or difficult to follow. This was a perfect blend of interesting storyline, well-paced story and enough intrigue to keep me guessing and interested without getting lost. I skipped the first in the series based on reviews of the audiobook and did not find myself lost. This book is more about Bobby Dodge than DD Warren, but that didn't trouble me. Not overly graphic and quite clean (just a few kisses). Just downloaded the next in the series.
Gripping and gritty, I found this book was too intense; it gave me nightmares.I might have fared better if I’d read it instead of listening because then I could have skimmed over the more graphic violence. I feel the same about Dean Koontz. The writing was nice and tight. The narrator did it justice,, and I always knew who was talking, man or woman. I appreciated the mix of Amy’s perspective in first-person, while Bobby’s was third. The mystery kept me guessing until the very end. I also enjoyed the light romantic element and Amy’s dog, Bella. Highly recommended for lovers of dark, grisly mysteries with superbly drawn characters. Contains child sexual abuse and murder of the serial variety.
I'm new to this author but I love how the secrets are being exposed all the way through the books. She had me thinking one way and then I'm surprised when the characters behavior meant someting completely different. Great series.
