I enjoy Tess Gerritsen's book, but the narration on this one is robotic. Hard to keep listening, but I always finish.
Tess Gerritsen's work is always good. "Ice Cold" is another good mystery. Enjoyed listening to this during a long drive. Couldn't turn off the iPod. Sat in the car to finish listening to this book.

Up until the series hit television I had never heard of Rizzoli & Isles. I enjoyed the show and thought I would give the books a try. I downloaded ICE COLD from Audible for my last trip and I was not disappointed.
Since this was my first one, and it was #8 in the series, I was a little lost with some of the character dynamics, but the author did a well wnough job of getting me up to speed. I found ICE COLD fast-paced and solid There were a few places where the internal narrative of the characters grated a little, but that may have been for personality purposes and probably not just to annoy me.
The story was a lot more interesting than the jacket copy led me to believe and even though it took me a little while to get into it, I truloy enjoyed it. I will be reading more of this series.
One of the reasons I chose this book is because I recently discovered Tanya Eby (Narrator) and am really enthralled with her ability as a reader. This was my second book read by Eby and there will be plenty more.
This is the latest in the Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles series by Tess Gerritsen. At first, the book failed to interest me but then a little over halfway through, I didn't want to turn it off or get out of the car. This story took Rizzoli and Isles out of their normal setting . Maura was stranded in a snowstorm in Wyoming and there was an odd cult involved. The narrator was above average. Ice Cold ended up being a decent addition to the Rizzoli and Isles series.
This was my first Rizzoli & Isles title and was I blown away!
Superb storyline, descriptions so vivid you get immersed in the plot's environs in no time and totally unpredictable!
Not for a moment did the narrative lose its momentum or its allure.
The narration is excellent as well, yet another factor that made the scenic descriptions come alive and haunt you.
I have been waiting for a long time for a new Tess Gerritsen book. I really liked this one a lot. I usually only listen to audiobooks in the car, but found myself wanting to listen to this one all the time.
Not written to the usual Tess Gerritsen formula. However, if you can get past that it is still an enjoyable listen. The ending makes one think that she might be setting the stage for a new series.
Another excellent book! Sat in my car in our diveway listening to and end of a chapter. On the edge of the seat as always, taking turns all of a sudden without prior warning...
Thank you; Tess and thank you audible.
My experience with this book has caused me to lose faith in the rating system. Practically every audiobook I've ever listened to was enjoyable to some degree, even when predictable. This book has some extremely, excruciatingly slow points that are highly predictable. In fact I almost stopped listening. The only other time I ever did that was with a narrator that had a deeply annoying voice/accent. The only reason I kept listening was that I didn't have another book on my iphone to start. If you're going to be predicable keep up the pace, please!!
