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.
Several cases going at once - Characters are great. And, as always Savich and Sherlock are rock solid! It was read by 2 narrators and they were great.
I am a former fan of C Coulter (reading) but this is the second one I have listened to on Audio and it is a total disaster with the readers Coulter is hiring. They are ruining her books! It will be hard to get through this book, they read like first graders. They don't have any idea how to make the characters sound serious or real. I am so disappointed the second time around. I tried this because it was a different reader than the first one but still a disaster. I am a true fan of audio but the readers are the ones that can make or break a truly good book.

There should have been some sort to research before this book was written and narrated.
This was absolutely the worst book I have ever listened to. I paid for it and I didn't have another one downloaded so I did listen to it. I have listened to hundreds of books and this book made no sense. It was like it was written in a vacuum with no real knowledge of FBI, medical, etc. I'm sure I've listened to Catherine Coulter before and was never this disappointed.
In Chapt 12 and giving it up. Good story but frustrating narration in general, including the annoyance of what sounds like voice overlays in weird places. Narrator snobs beware.
This book goes on and on and you wish they'd come to it! Some of the reader's characterizations, especially the female, were off the edge. You wish she would have stayed in acting school longer.. Way too dramatic. And I thought the story jumped around too much....sometimes I didn't know where we were. Maybe that's because my mind wandered due to the dragging out of the theme.
Overacting in parts.
Very poor story line, could not even finish it but tried. Was rolling my eyes in parts.
The part where Sherlock is drugged, it goes on and on.
Maybe Patricia Cornwell, I am not sure.
Sometimes Renee's voice was too wispy or squeaky.
I really like the characters, Sherlock, Savage, Lucy, and Cooper. I would definitely buy another book with these characters. The interaction between them was great. I would like to see more development of the characters and all of them solving a case. I would also like to see more supernatural elements.
I liked that there were more than one story happening at once.
