The storyline and the suspense
Some of the James Patterson books. I never want to put it down
Everything. Clear, dramatic when she needed to be; soft when she needed to be, etc.
Ann and Vince getting together
I have never read Tami Hoag before, but I am a fan now
Entertaining first book in trilogy. Good character development. I must join my fellow reviewers in mentioning the odd
This book was SO good! I LOVE the narrator! She had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happend next! it makes you wonder about what goes on behind closed doors!
Wow what to say about this book - twists and turns, dysfunctional families, a murder, psychotic killer! Could not turn off this audible book!
I really enjoyed the book, without computers and other technology, relying on tedious police research, gut feelings and psychology. Imagine "Criminal Minds" without Penelope. Overall, the characters were quite believable (though the accent of Vince seems wrong for Chicago, sounds more Bostonian). I have only a short commute of 15 mins and many times I found myself still sitting in the car for several minutes, listening to book - my version of "not being able to put it down".
The narrator is wonderful and the story kept my interest until the very end. This was my first Tami Hoag book, but I'll definitely read more of her books after this! Just the right amount of murder & suspense :-)!
This book is a great listen. Some of the characters/families might be a little over the top, but overall an interesting bunch of people and a gripping series of events. I appreciated the fact that the sex scenes were kept to the minimum (one), as my teenagers also listen to the books and it's always an issue with downloads to find out halfway through the book that the writer threw in some graphic sex scenes (that doesn't even add to the story).
The narrator was very good and the story kept me guessing up to the end. Just as you think you know who the villain is, she throws in a red herring or two. Not a bad buy for your credit.
The words in this book, plus Kirsten Potter's reading make it an almost realistic experience. I could almost see the characters in my mind as the story progressed. Tami Hoag dwells extensively on analyzing the work and family lives of the various characters - it feels like being in Oak Knoll.
Fantastic - Tam Hoag really did her homework and it shows. This book is spectacular. I LOVE her characters, especially the 5th grade students...very believable. The narrator was AWESOME..the only reason didn't give it 5 stars is because although the protagonist is from Chicago, I felt Kirsten gave him more of a New England accent. Nevertheless I will seek out more books that she has recorded; she was FABULOUS!.
