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.
Slightly above average. The story was interesting, but not as substantial, and the characters were not as clearly drawn as the ones in the Rizzoli and Isles books.
Somewhat. The story was interesting and I did not know what to expect from it.
She's always good. She does a nice job with both male and female characters.
There is an interesting note from the author about her early writing experiences. Still a little too much of the romance left in this one - that made it a bit less enjoyable for me. But the plot was intricate and interesting. I liked the main characters, although they seemed a bit sketchy - not as clear as her later characters. Overall, I enjoyed the book very much, although I do like her more recent books more.
No. Once I have read a book, even though I loved it, I would want to go on to the authors next novel.
Yes. Their were twists and turns throughout the book.
I enjoyed the whole of the book. I did not have anyone particular bit that I liked more.
This was the first Tess Gerritsen book that I have listened too. I have since read two more and my husband is reading her books as well. When I get an author that I like I usually try and read all the novels. I am also enjoying Vince Flynn novels and find it hard to decide who I will spend my monthly credit on Vince Flynn or Tess Gerritson.
