I agree with the prior reviewers. I thought that I must have missed a few chapters in the download. Cornwell's conclusions have been rather abrupt/rushed in the past 3-4 novels, but this book's sudden ending has reached a ridiculous new low. I can only conclude that a publisher's deadline was involved.
I have enjoyed this author's past work, so I didn't check the reviews - big mistake. I found the characters not very likable, too depressing for me. As others have said, the story ended in an unsatisfying rush. I strongly suggest you look for another way to spend your credit/money.
The reader made the characters come to life.
The story line was interesting and fast paced.
I listened to it in the car as I travelled and I found myself wanting to be in the car to continue listening to the book. This was unusual because I usually hate the travelling.
Patricia Cornwell's been writing characters we love (and love to hate) for years, too bad this standalone novel doesn't have those characters. I think it could only improve this to have a crossover. Very disappointing. I wish I would have saved a credit.
I purchased this book out of loyalty to an author I have really liked in the past-but now I wish I hadn't wasted the credit on it. Characters are good, but the story goes nowhere & ends abruptly. Pay attention to the reviews before you buy this!
I agree with the other reviews. I have read or heard all of this author's books. I thought they were very good until about 3 or 4 books ago. Now they are not worth the time or money. I truly hope she can get back on track as she is a very gifted writer.
