I bet it comes across better on the page, but I felt the jumps within the story were distracting.
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
Perhaps if I had the written pages to refer to I would have been able to follow the frequent jumps in time. The story was hard to believe but the author pulled that off in the end.I am hesitant to recommend this book.
Tell us about yourself!
The main character was interesting but the plot was a bit silly. While the first half of the book was original, the second half was dull. It was easy to anticipate the plot twists. Still, I listened until the end. If the author writes a second novel with the same main character, I don't think I will download it. This is a good book for the beach but not a stellar book that will leave you thinking about it long after you have finished.
Yes, actually i've already begun a second listen. I've rarely listen to a fiction book more than once but this one is that good
absolutely. great story, characters are well-developed, lots of plausible twists and turns

I could feel the personal tension of Kate- woman, mom, professional, wife- all tensions I related with. I listened repeatedly it was so good- I heard new nuances each time.
Became preposterous at times, but I still wanted to learn about the next twist.
I found the first one-third tedious and almost quit but am glad I stuck with it. Despite organizational problems it all comes together well in the end. Don't expect a female Bourne but rather a reflective perspective on life at the gray area of government-sanctioned intrigue and crime a la le Carre and you'll enjoy this many-layered story.
