From the author of the Rizzoli & Isles books that are now a TV show as well, this is an older book reissued and updated. It has a nice intro and post book interview with Tess Gerritsen. Like Maura Isles, Cat Novak is a Medical Examiner in the northeast. Although that's about as much as they have in common. I really liked this herione and wish there were more Cat Novak book out there. This book has a little science, a little police action, and a little romance. A delightful afternoon read.
I have read many of Tess Gerritsen's books and enjoyed them all until this one. It was not engaging and the characters and narrative were shallow and the storyline was formulaic. Seemed like a very first attempt at writing a thriller. Don't waste your time or money on this one.
I might read another book by Tess Gerritsen, but I don't think I'd listen to another narrated by Susan Ericksen.
The narrator was just not that good. There was not enough difference in the voices and I often got confused on who was speaking.
The story was just ok. The main character seemed to have a big chip on her shoulder that clouded her common sense.
When Cat jump into the water.
They all were Ms. Ericksen is a good reader to listen to.
I read this book when it was first released in the 90s. I was enjoying listening to it until Ms. Ericksen did the main male voice. (the rich guy) after Cat car was stolen. From that point on I felt like I was listening to the murder books from JD Robb. The love story line and the voices were the same.
A better story. Thought it was new but not up to Gerritsen current standards.
This is an early Gerritsen novel, and it shows. The character could be deeper, better explained, and there are some gaps in the development, but maybe the editor cut out a little too much. Even so, it shows the trend she'll take later, and the story is nicely done, and enjoyable.
More romance than I thought there would be, but still good mystery
too long for all at one time
The book was just
Not really, there were some obvious
Her voice did not translate well into different characters, and most of the delivery was in the same tone.
