Best Novel Ever
The twists and the turns and the way that you didn't know what direction the book was going until BAM!! you're there, where it's all happening! This was a great book of suspense but was able to really capture your emotions while reading.
I think that they were WONDERFUL narrators and really captured the essence of the story. It's been over six months since I listened to this story and I can hear their narrations replaying in my head like it was just a few minutes ago. They made it memorable...believable.
YES!!!! I was actually on a trip and did end up listening to almost the whole book in one day! I found myself wanted to drive further just so I could finish it!
You can't go wrong with this audiobook!
what a mother would do for her child
Kirsten Potter. I could picture the character more with her voice.
Both. I Felt so sad for all the thing she had to do to make things right.
I listen to all of Lisa Gardens books. This one to me was her best. I really enjoyed the story. A mother's love for her child. great book
Everything you can ask for a suspense thriller book, action, drama, love story, and suspense
All the characters, they all gel together to make the story great.
The narrators had done justice in telling a well-written story by Lisa Gardner. I ended up buying additional credits to download more of Gardner's audio books and beside James Paterson, I think Lisa Gardner became a favorite author of mine. Worth every penny for my credits.
When Tessa Leoni was ready to die for her child near the end. It depicts the purest form of love of a mother to her child.
If you like suspense-filled books, I think this is one of the best out there. Worth the time and money to enjoy a great story written well by Lisa Gardner. Highly recommend it.
The story is told from multiple points of view and even the protagonist's isn't straight-forward. You know she was involved but you don't know how or why and the plot is ladled out in small doses.
The best parts of a movie are usually the actor's voices and what they do with that here is pretty good. Since what you have is voice and script, you get to fill in your own visuals. The voice actors really help with that.
Finally understanding the backstory with the prior killing was a head slapper. It's kind of too bad the author decided to go that route though. It would have been more realistic to keep it as a part of her character.
We didn't know the bad guys very well which is always an easy way to satisfy the reader but I would have like to have them more a part of the story from the beginning although I suppose that would have spoiled the surprise.
I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I was excited and mad throughout the entir book. Well work the read/listen.
When she started to get payback.
At the end with her daughters.
I really enjoyed this book because it was truly suspenseful throughout the story. It was a good story line and it wasn't obvious where it was going. Also, it didn't have a lot of "fill in" chapters that could have been left out, as I find in a lot of books. This was a very well written book and I really enjoyed the story line, and the suspense that truly kept me guessing. No - boring parts for me; a treat & a good listen. I've never read a book from this Author, but will seek more.
I like the Davenport stories but this one dragged on a bit, and had a side story that did not mesh well with the overall story
No surprises at the end - everything ties up as expected
performed in character
no. it was long enough
Too many 'cop' cliches; eye-rolling machismo; formulaic and derivative, mines heavily from the 'Boston Police Drama' genre; unlikable main characters; unfunny attempts at humor.
I'd have to gut-renovate this novel entirely, leaving the bones but remodeling the characters and settings. I'd take it out of the cliched world of 'cop drama' (YAWN) and nudge it over to the 'psychological thriller' realm. Good story, but the execution was predictable and grating at times.
I cringed my way through this book. I'm sorry, because there seem to be a number of devoted fans out there, but this 'tough lady cop' drama just wasn't for me. I don't care for pat, snarky one-liners from one-dimensional characters. I don't care for 'Go ahead, make my day' machismo. I don't care for 'Jekyll and Hyde' style, mentally-ill bad guys.
This story is good underneath all the gimmicky cop talk, but I just can't get past the gimmicky cop stuff enough to enjoy it.
A little too descriptive on being a mother, but other than that I liked the twists and turns of the book.
This was a great listen. I was on edge to the very end, fully expecting a different outcome. The last few chapters just kept twisting and turning; I loved the way Lisa just dribbled the full story out. I had so much fun trying to second guess the plot. Once the ending was clear, I thought "Well of course that was how it happened". What fun!
