It reads like a porn movie -- two characters with no end of dysfunction find each other mutually attractive despite the grisly goings on around them. At one point O'Dell is thrown into a river, getting caught in fence posts and barbed wire. When she's fished out, do they take her to the hospital? NOOOO. The sheriff (the other dysfunctional character) takes her to his house, disrobes her and holds her while she sleeps. Puh-lease. In addition to that nonsense, we get treated to rationalization by the sheriff's sister, a reporter, about how she can behave with NO journalistic ethics because she has a son to support.
Never again, Alex. Fool me once, shame on you. It could have been a pretty good mystery, too.
Okay the plot was a good one, but the author butchered this story, and the love story was so sickingly sweet I wanted to stop... If the author wasn't so worried about writing a LONG DRAWN OUT story it could have been a good one... No great twist and turns in either the murder mystery or the love story so BORING.
this book was...well..just ok. It did the job of keeping me occupied at work but that's about it. Both the male and female leads were quite weak and uninteresting. I would say that i had the story figured out by hour four...
I am wishing that I read this book and didn't listen to it. The story in itself was great. I can't say anything bad about Alex Kava. The narration on the the other hand was just terrible. As the book went on I found myself getting used to the reader's style, but in the first 1/2 I had to continually go back and re-listen to what was being read.
If I was Alex Kava, I would be very upset with the way my book comes off in this audio because it did not do the story justice at all.
This was a very good listen, I found myself sitting in the car not wanting to stop. There was enough contradictions to keep you guessing all the way to the end. Thoroughly enjoyable book. Am really disappointed the sequel is abridged! Come on give us the whole book please!!
This was really engrossing and I listened to the entire story. The characters were interesting; I like the female FBI agent. T. Though the "sex" scenes got repetitive, I would listen to another of this series.
I found this book to be "on the edge of your seat" thriller. Even though you suspect who done it, it has enough twists and turns in it to keep you going. I highly recommend this book.
