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.
I love a good mystery. Mysteries are puzzles that give your brain a good workout. However, when the author doesn't give you the most pertinent piece of information until nearly the end of the book , then instead of being a good puzzle it is just frustrating.
No, I don't generally re-listen to a book. It would have to be a long time between listens, or reads for me to have forgotten most of it before reading it again.
Who the real bad guy was!
Would have been nice. It sure kept my interest and had me finding time to listen as much as I could.
Just buy it.....you'll be glad you did! It's a twisty adventure
Ps. Narration was very good too
Lisa Gardner never fails to build the suspense. Interesting, intriguing and just plain enjoyable. I'm on to the 3rd in the series now. I'm glad I discovered her works.
