I found this story to be really good, except all the swearing really bothered me. It got to the point in the story where I was starting to wonder if the author knew other words. It was making her look unintelligent and not very creative in her descriptions. Don't get me wrong, I can understand using the F word in certain situations where the word makes sense and fits in context, but in this story it was used way too much even in places it wasn't needed to get the point across. I really liked the story line and it kept me wanting to finish the book which I did, but I won't recommend it to people I know because of the swearing. I feel it would offend them as it did me. I couldn't even listen to the book from my computer because I didn't want my kids to hear all the swearing. I probably won't listen to any more of Lisa Gardner's novels for this reason because I want a good story and I don't feel I should have to listen to someone else swear every two minutes. I know I am not the only one who feels this way either.
I only finished listening to this because I didn't want to waste money and I kept hoping it would get better. I did not. The narrator made me want to rip the headphones out of my ears. What a dissapointment.
I could not stop listening - even would wake up in the middle of the night to continue. Great suspense novel-loved how the narrator changed each chapter between the female homocide detective and the main character Tessa- I do have to say this crime novel leaves you guessing the whole time. The only negative would be that though the characters were good- they seemed kind of flat and unrealistic.
It's a good solid Thriller. My first Lisa Gardner boook. I enjoyed it.
You will wonder how the Gardner is going to make a story out of an "obvious" crime scene. Having two narrators the story is well told by the two points of view.
WRITER GAVE THIS BOOK SOME THOUGHT. LOTS OF TWISTS AND TURNS. WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE. THE NARRATORS WERE EXCELLENT. I WAS NOT SORRY THAT I PURCHASED THIS BOOK
Narrator keeps your interest in a book that has several twists and turns, and begging you not to stop listening to the story until it is completed. The direction of the story flowed well and the exciting ending was well worth the wait.
This title was quite a disappointment. The improbable plot is dependent on a law enforcement officer making one bad decision after another. It is further complicated by a highly unlikely series of events which escalate both in absurdity and violence as the story progresses. The dialogue is in places cliched and in others, just plain awful; the narrator doesn't have a lot to work with and can't get through the countless annoying renditions of "My Two Front Teeth" without setting the listener's teeth on edge.
