good story , it should be called ' can you have a worse week' . The hero could have been
delved into a little deeper.
Let me start by saying that I really like all the books I have listened to by Tess Gerritesen, but this audo book was the only one that I wanted to turn off at the begining. The story is good. The characters are good. The reader is not. There wasn't much difference between each character, especially the males. They all fell prey to her horible voice over. I have not been one to criticize so far, but this one I did have to speek out on. Please Tess Gerritsen, pick someone better next time....
If you can get past her voice, like I forced myself to, the plot is really good. Maybe this would be a better book to get than the audio version :)

This is my 12th book by TS. For me, reading one of her books is like listening to an old friend. Some of my old friends don't tell the best stories, but I still am comfortable with them. TS is not the greatest story teller, yet I feel comfortable with her.
TS started her career writing romance, but was not too successful with it. Now that she has hit the big time, she is going back to it. I discovered her when she was writing medical thrillers and she usually had some weird aspect to her story. In Harvest she had afterbirth, with an eye and it was living. Then her Rizzoli series got picked up by TBS Or USA? And now she is famous.
This book is mostly romance. Of the few romance I have read I like this best, but that is not saying much. It is just not my thing. Do not try to figure the mystery out in this as no clues are given to you in order to do so. Nina the female lead starts out with one of the worst days ever, her fiance leaves her standing at the alter, the church gets blown up and somebody tries to kill her. Later she falls in love with a cop, seduces him and tells him it is just one night, don't worry about anything else. The next morning she sinks her claws in him and tries to own him. He tells her no, but she doesn't listen. This may not seem right, but is so typical. I also did not care for the transformation of the bad guy. At the beginning he is suppose to be smart and crafty, but then he cracks up and gets sloppy. So, sloppy it is almost stupid.
If your not into romance, then listen or read Life Support, Gravity, The Surgeon, Ice Cold or The Apprentice. All great TS books.
Narrator is just ok, can't do male voices well at all.
