I have listen to all my Faye Kellerman's books about 8 times now. The stories stays interesting. Ms. Kellerman has the capability to create the image of the characters in such a way that they are alive to me. Thanks for these books. I hope other books will soon follow. Lastly the Narrator is the best!
Even though it was hard for me to build interest in the story at first, the more I listened the more it grabbed my attention. In the end I thought this book was fabulous.
The book was pretty good except fot the stupid ending which was too co-incidental to be acceptable to most readers. It kept my interest for most of the book and provided some suspense and plot twists. Not great but not bad.
I don't read all of what Faye Kellerman writes but I do like her books that take place in California in the present. Although this book was very interesting and well written, there were some bizarre coincidences that detracted from the overall enjoyment. The story will keep your interest right up to the end though. Overall, an interesting read but not one of her best.
This book had me wondering until near the end. I got really mad ten minutes before the end when the battery ran out on my MP3 player. This book is well worth the money.

Yes, because the author has told a story that kept me drawn in and really caring about the characters. That alone would put this title in the top ten for me. However, this is an audio book and the narrator can either ruin a book or take it to a higher lever. George Guidall, is truly a voice-actor who brings the characters to life.. Kellerman & Guidall are a perfect match.
Each character in this story is believable and each character helps bring the plot forward. I had an emotional reaction to the characters and that means good writing.
Mr. Guidall, has the ability to change his voice in a subtle way; he takes on the gender, age, mentality or emotional state of the character. He is never over-the-top or obviously being an actor "doing" a female, child or elder voice. He becomes the character and that is the voice that character would have. Mr. Guidall, could read the phone book and most would be happy to listen. I have many titles in my library and would rate this title in the top 20. I wish I could give it a higher rating. You can buy this title with confidence of a good story read by one of the best narrators.
I bought the title because Mr. Guidall, was the narrator and delightfully discovered that Fay Kellerman, is such a great author. I hope that Mr. Guidall, will continue to narrate this series.
Yes & No. I liked the plot line, it was an interesting idea. But while I LOVE George Guidall when he reads the Longmier series of books, he doesn't do the characters justice here.
Pluses & minuses.
Not in this series. All the female characters sounded like Victoria Moretti from the Longmeir books to me.
I was distracted by the narrator; didn't like his reading at all. It was hard to keep track of the characters. He has an irritating voice. I've liked many of Kellerman's books but I've always read them not listened. Maybe her books are better read than narrated or maybe another narrator would have made a difference.
This book had a good basic story line, but the character relationships and "coincidences" were just a little hard to believe. Not my favorite whodunit, but it did keep me entertained.
