I found this to be one of the best books in the D.D. Warren series. It was funny, tragic, and full if suspense to the last page.
The writing and detail of a serious, seasoned writer. Another interesting tale of suspense and intrigue. Not her best, but definitely a contender.
great audio book! it was full if suspense from start to finish. the performance from each reader was terrific and they really brought you into the story.
This book is emotionally powerful and probably will trigger a lot of readers. It deals with mental illness in children in a very blunt, yet well-informed and tender, way, and if you have experiences with that, it can be very hard to take. The mysteries put young children in very brutal situations, and that may not be for everyone, either.
The mystery is engaging and broad, the events are personal and relevant, and the scenes are brutal and emotional. It's a very good read. I wouldn't exactly call it fun--it's too strong on the heartbreak for that. But it is satisfying, and unlike a lot of detective stories, this one will probably linger with you for a while. On the other hand, you may see the world around you a little differently when you finish it. Well worth the listen. The readers do an excellent job, too.
I did enjoy the story, but I'm getting really tired of the female detective whining about wanting to have sex all the time! It really distracts from the story.
I didn't realize how dark this story would be. I couldn't finish it.
I don't care for the detective D.D. 's character. The other plots were too depressing.
The narrators's did well.
I have listened to about 4 of her books...and only one mildy disappointed, and that was because of the narrator.
I work at a psychiatric hospital with patients from 6 yrs old to 80+yrs old. I think she portrayed the hospital well. It is a sad place to work and gets tough at times. It can also be a very rewarding place to work. Thanks Lisa for bringing pediatric mental illness out in the open and bring awareness to it.
