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.
I believe this book has been called the “bridge” between the author’s romance novels and her medical crime thrillers and since I haven’t read any of her romance books but some of the medical thrillers, I’ll have to take it under advisement. What I won’t have to take under advisement is how good this story is. Not only good, but great. It had me hooked from the beginning and I hated to see it end. I also had hoped that there would be a hint of a sequel or next installment with the characters of Kat and Adam but in my investigations I have failed to come across any. Darn. Just when their relationship seems to have a chance of surviving,the book ends. Oh well, now that I’ve finished a medical thriller, it got me wanting more so I’ve started another one by one of my favorite authors, Patricia Cornwell and can’t wait to really get into it. If you enjoy Tess Gerritson and haven’t read Girl Missing you really should give it a try.
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
The basic plot had potential but the romance between the two main characters was rather forced. Much of the dialogue was rather uninspired and tedious. I suppose if you are a romance fan it is okay, but i was expecting more of a thriller mystery and was quite disappointed. The last few chapters were okay but it was really just okay.
As for the performance, all the male characters came across as having some kind of accent. Not well done.
