I live on Puget Sound and my wife and I spend our summers on our boat out on the water.
I think David LeDoux does a great job reading the book. Its written in a first person narrative that wears rather thin. Although the story has a few twists and turns, the ending is predictable and the entire book leaves you a bit unsatisfied.
I don't think I'd try another Mitzner book for awhile.
Retired teacher then social worker living in Spain.. have three grown up children 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
Yes, I thought it was well written, if a little predictable, but enjoyed the Courtroom scenes and the ramifications of the accused and the accuser. Well written and well narrated.
Alex's character is real and believable, facing choices that people face, his character made listening fun.
Listening while I run.
This book had potential but just missed. The main characters were not compelling and fell flat. There are some nice twists and turns in the story but overall it didn't work for me. Save your credit for something else.
Mobile and Web developer, Audible member since 2004. Trend towards mystery-thrillers just for fun, but read most everything of substance (i.e. no romances here).
This book reads like a self-consumed diary of a teenager. So much time is spent going over and over and OVER the flirting and building relationship between Alex and his associate that the story is lost. Frankly, I didn't care about Alex (or any other character, for that matter) enough to care about his possible extra-marital affair. I got to that point in this book where I ask myself "Do I care about this character? Do I want to know what happens to him?". With this book, the definitive answer was no. Moved on, didn't finish, and that's saying a lot. Disappointed I wasted a credit on this.
I listen on my long commute to work.
The story is very well written, it keeps you interested and wanting more. I finished the audio book and continued to think of the characters and what if.... Very good book, I bought a printed copy.
Lots of surprises!!
Oleg. It was always a mystery as to who he really was and how guilty he was or wasn't.
This was my first listen to this narrator. Enjoyed his performance. He added alot to the quality of the story.
The revelation of the job loss. Don't want to give away too much.
This was a pretty well thought out work of mystery. It seemed that just when you think you are figuring out the story and characters, another twist gets thrown at you!!
Pretty cool!! Liked the story and the "hard to put down" continual story line.
Although I am a big fan of this genre, this book is uninspiring.
I can't believe anyone thought this was a good read/listen. The story was unoriginal, boring, lacking in believability, humorless and had no flow. Obvious plot 'twists'. It was really bad.
Boring story, humorless.
Performance was OK.
Luckily it wasn't too long.
Anyone who gave this a good review -like Alan Dersowitz - has lost all credibility as a reviewer in my eyes.
As a lawyer that recently left "Biglaw" I could really identify with the protagonist and the pressure on a lawyer in a big firm. Yes it is actually like that!!! This is an "intelligent" thriller, which explains the procedures and creates tension without the need to add blood and guts. Highly recommended.
