I am a huge fan of James Patterson and all of his Alex Cross novels. His latest characters introduced in First to Die are a fun and different mix. This book definitely held my interest but the narrator was terrible. She over emphasized words and phrases to the point were she made some of the characters unlikable.If you can get past that it is worth reading and I can't wait to hear the third installment. At least the Lindsey Boxer stories can hold me over until the next Alex Cross comes out!
I really enjoyed the 2nd installment in this series, and I'll be looking forward to the next one. The narrators were great and definitley added to my enjoyment of the story.
I really like these characters - Lindsay, Claire, Jill and Cindy - strong, professional women who usually manage to have lives outside their jobs as well as fascinating careers. I admit to having a soft spot for this type of character.
The plot was great - an intriguing mystery with enough twists and turns to keep me engaged. I guess wrong about "whodunit" and was quite surprised at the final resolution. There were a few trite moments, but they were outweighed by the rest of the story.
Good story. Not quite as good as the first, but good. Not a big fan of the tag team reader, but still a good listen.
2nd Chance did not quite live up to the standards set in 1st to Die but is worth the read. It is fast paced and follows many twists and turns before finally reaching a surprise conclusion. This series should be read in order.
Say something about yourself!
I really love this series, I feel like I'd like to hang out with Lindsay, Claire, Jill and Cindy. But wow, the narration was bad. I've heard the first three in the series - this was my least favorite.
