This story was pretty gripping for the most part. Creepy, unexplained moments that bordered on paranormal or spiritual. I feel it wrapped up kind of silly, though.
Love Kirsten Potter, Rebecca Lowman.
Don't love Anne Marie Lee. Her style annoys me to no end. Too contrived. Every last word if her sentences reads like some life lesson. Or, she reads like she's trying to sell diamond rings. "Give her the gift...of diamonds"
sorry for the AML hatefest =/
Excellent! Could not stop listening, even though I had to do taxes and catch up on my reading for a class.
This is the second book I have listened to by this author. I didn't like it as much as the other so I'm giving it three stars for story because I thought the plot wasn't realistic but it was still kept me guessing. If the books where only told from the main character detective DD Warren then I wouldn't like them. DD is a real bitch. But the great thing about both the books I have read is they are from the perspective of different characters within the book making them a lot more interesting. I also really enjoyed that there are more than one person narrating the book.
Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
I appreciate the research that Lisa Gardner puts into most of her novels. A story needs to be believable for me to enjoy and this one was great. It lost a little of the oomph for the ending but I still gave it high ratings for everything that came before. The narrators did an excellent job.

This review was 5 years in the making. I purchased and read/listened to this in 2011. In 2016 I considered buying a Gardner book. In reading many of the reviews I wondered why I never read anything by Gardner before. I was very surprised to find that in 2011, I purchased 4 of Gardner's book.
So before I used a credit for a new Gardner, I decided to revisit the old ones. I was extremely delighted to find that I enjoyed the books. DD Warren is a very competent detective. She is very down to earth being 40 years old and passionate about her work and unhappy about her private life. Her private is only "unhappy" because it has been a dry sex year or few for her. (I am listening to the next book now and the dry spell is over for her) Her working relationship with her colleges is funny yet they respect her.
To my review. Take it I really enjoyed this book to write a review 5 years later. I really enjoyed that I could not predict the killer. Her rap up was nice and logical. There is not much action per say. She only pulls out her gun once. But it is a captivating way Warren solves her crimes.
Gardner's DD Warren is a good detective novel without a lot of the technical stuff or grisly bodies. Warren is an outstanding detective assured in her skills and her sexuality.
loved it. more disturbing than criminal minds (my favorite) and with a good, solid plot. twists and turns I didn't see coming. Lisa Gardner is one of a kind, not afraid to give too much
The reading performance was excellent. The writing was good. I like the D.D. Warren series, but this story was just too disturbing to want to continue. I set it aside about 2 hours into it, and will delete it from my collection.
A little depressing with lots of juggling if characters but Lisa Gardner pulled them all together as usual. I did notice though that the villains are always killed by their victims and not arrested.
