A few must reads: Mr. Mercedes, Narrows Gate, Cop Town, Bomb Proof, Wayfaring Stranger, The Son (Nesbo), Dept Q series...
Deaver is known for extraordinary procedural detail, twists and character development. I loved this book, particularly because it surprised me at several points. The suspense is also first rate.
The heroine, Katherine Dance is an investigator for the California Buereau of Investigations specializing inbinterrogation and kinesics (or body language). Deaver does a great job revealing her expertise without becoming tedious. In fact I found it fascinating.
The reader is Anne Twomy who does an excellent job.
Book was a good mystery, but somewhat drawn out. Not sure about the idea of the body language detective. Don't believe that I'll give book two of the series a try.
Love the thrillers!
Ranks very high on my list of audiobooks.
The twist(s) at the end or what I thought was the end.
I liked them all.
I downloaded the next two in the series.
I couldnt get past this narrator to be able to enjoy the reading of this book. I found myself daydreaming or simply not listening because this woman told such an incredibly boring tale, that I lost interest. I can only tell you what the beginning is about ( before I lost interest), some of the middle ( which I tried to focus on and get past the narration to enjoy the story. I spent the money after all..) but none of the ending ( because I never made it that far.). Still don't know what happened. I honestly don't care. I would rather not know than to listen to her again. For me, I am disappointed that I wasted the credit ( darn you little sample clip) and am pretty sure I will never buy another book that is narrated by Anne Twomey.
Love history, good mysteries, spiritual, in general well written books. Shy away from romance novels.
I really enjoyed this book. It had been awhile since I had listened to a murder thriller and this was very good. A Manson-like murderer escapes from prison and brings panic and bloodshed where ever he goes. There are a lot of twists and turns that make sense and keep the reader's interest.
Story is pretty good .. characters are pretty real ... but all the "insight" into the mind of this "expert" just made the book drag on hour beyond what could have/should have been the end.
Outstanding story and narration. You do not want to stop listening. Thoroughly enjoyed - one of the best from Jeffery Deaver.
This is the first Jeffery Deaver I have read and I enjoyed all of the twists and turns. I particularly liked the narrator, Anne Twomey. She has a low, soft voice which is suitable for both genders and she gave a very thoughtful, low-key reading. I didn't think I would like it at first, but as I kept listening, I thought her voice very suitable for this book.
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
the basic premise of the story had a lot of potential but there was way too much plodding drival about the main character that had nothing to do with the story. There were also a lot of subplots that never really came together and just distracted from the main plot.
Overall, a lot of slowness!
