More believable FBI agents, rather than the bumbling idiots they seemed in this book.
Not the genre, but maybe this author or the narrators.
Just not exciting enough,nor was it believable.
Didn't care for the multiple voices and the way they "read" their lines. Did not seem natural. Also the plot and the characters were unrealistic.
I've enjoyed other Coulter books, so this one did not meet my expectations.
Not as good.
Seemed to be "reading" a script - did not sound natural.
All of them were so real to me.
the total depth of the situations
The humor and feel level of these stories
I just enjoy reading them and that is what I read novels for and I am always sorry when the books in this series ends.
I hope Coulter keeps this series going or starts a new one as good.
if the story were more believable and if the separate themes had some connection. They were totally disconnected and the idea of Ted Bundy's daughter was outlandish and offensive. Bundy was too evil to be given even fictional recognition. Trying to connect the Bundy theme with FBI agent Lucy's theme was not just a stretch, it was a chasm too far to bridge. Lucy's story line alone would have made a compelling tale filled with family intrigue and would have held my full attention
I have loved Catherine Coulter's stories for over 20 years so the disappointment in this book was doubly unhappy. It is unlikely I will listen to one of her books again, especially if I have to pay for it. Maybe from the library where it is free? What happened to her usual excellent writing? Coulter doesn't need a gimmick like the Bundy theme to write a compelling mystery.
It was okay, not outstanding, but very listenable.
Give up the gimmicks and get back to writing compelling mysteries with Dillon and Sherlock. Develop the characters personality more and rely on the story line to carry the reader through.
I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
If you think these are or could be significant elements in aiding any Law Enforcement Officer's search for a killer, this may be your book. SPOILER: No worries for the Porshe lovers, even when chasing a dangerous fleeing serial killer he is careful not to scratch the car.
Three story lines which of course is an interesting concept; the interesting one is given the least definition. At least it wasn't a bodice ripper, just a ridiculous pseudo thriller with a little dash of magic/supernatural nonsense. I enjoy all types of fiction even a little fantasy (Forever, by Pete Hamill great book), but they need to be well done and have context.
Coulter has written some decent escape fiction, but this book doesn't fall into that category. In my opinion there is nothing to recommend the listen, even the narration was strange.
I loved this book but I am a die-hard Coulter fan, especially of her FBI series books. This one did not disappoint.
Did not read it.
Sherlock & Savitch, of course.
The readers did not do this book justice. Having read many of the author's books, and listened to several, I cannot understand how the author could have chosen them. Their stilted reading and awful accents were uncomfortable to listen to. At one point, the female reader sounded like a very bad imitation of Dolly Parton. An enjoyable story, as Coulter's all are, but not at all pleasing to listen to. I wish I had read it instead of listening to it!
I listened to "Split Second" as I was driving accross country and it was great travel companion.
The plot was not obvious from the first chapter.
no, this was my first.
Have read other CC books, and was satisfied with those. Not this one.
Non-standard villian. All the
Story line O.K., not CC's best. I had no problem with either reader, acceptable. But everytime there is a gun fight, she has multiple people, including young kids running toward the shooting, or just standing in the open watching, 3 or 4 times in the story (really?)! Like every person would be that stupid. Made me want to stop listening, made story much less believeable. Some interesting twists but generally would not recommend unless you would run toward those gun shots.
