Facts of the story were fed to you in a way that you always feel on the verge of piecing it all together, but never quite do until the end. Great listen!
This was a good read. The story line was unusual and the author set up unique twists and turns throughout the book. Although it wasn't one of the best books I've ever read, I still enjoyed reading this book.
I am a truck driver who loves listening to audio books. I also play a music and some gardening when I can. I do really like to cook as well.
I am not much on writing reviews but this book is worth an A+ and the effort from me to write something and recommend this book.
top of the list
I don't usually read mystery/suspense, but this was a reading group book
her tone was good, she was able to differentiate characters with her voice without sounding fake
keeps you on the edge of your seat & difficult to stop listening to it!
names not susan
My favorite audio book so far
I couldn't stop listening.
Kirsten Potter does a great job of narrating the story without overacting.
I am listening to a second Lisa Gardner book and have a third (narrated by Kirsten Potter) on my wish list.
"I'm going to be murdered in four days." That got D. D. Warren's attention! As a Boston homicide detective, Warren is not typically called upon to prevent a murder, but that's the request made of her by a mysterious stranger.
Fast-paced suspenseful story, unfolded in small pieces that the reader can fit together. As more pieces are added, the puzzle has to be rearranged again and again. Just when it all seems clear -- something new! This is the kind of storytelling that appeals to folks who like to figure out "whodunnit" before being told.
The narrator's speaking voice is pleasant, and she enunciates clearly. However, she read two major characters so similarly that I often couldn't tell them apart. When I finally caught on to who was speaking, I wished I could "turn back a page or two" to review what she had said and what it meant.
Having heard one D. D. Warren short story, and then this novel, I'm definitely interested enough in Lisa Gardner's writing to seek out more in this series.
Up on top, but then I usually like all the books I listen to while I listen to them, that's why I listen!
It kept me pretty much ingrossed in the book, and when I couldn't listen to it, I wanted to get back to it.
yes, I wanted to, but couldn't as it was longer than I could hear in one day.
I enjoyed it so much, I brought her newest book
I had to finish the last five chapter sitting in front of the office.
Suspense, emotion, and intrigue
This is the first 'long-story' I've listened to by Lisa Gardner. My first experience was a short story which I did not like at all. I only listened to this novel because I had already purchased it. Boy, am I thankful I did. This book is filled with suspense and intrigue combined with huge doses of many emotions. I've already bought additional novels by Ms. Gardner because I enjoyed this one so much.
