This is one of the worst books I've come across in a long time. It's such a crude attempt at being serious, that I just laughed. But also, embarrassed for the author...and myself for having listened to a few chapters.
Mainly a sci-fi, and fantasy junkie who also enjoys horror, whodunnits, and books about animals and sports. I'm also an amateur filmmaker.
I really enjoyed this one. It's actually a pretty cliched jailhouse story of how some women were set up and thrown in prison unjustly. And then they had to (try to) survive. Great drama, great characters, and a satisfying resolution to the whole mess. I loved it!
Yes, it is a great mystery but not too dark. I've listened to other Audiobooks by the same narrator and she is a favourite of mine so that makes it enjoyable as well.
Absolutely. While I predicted the ending early on in the story there was still enough going on to keep me on my seat. It was an Audiobook I listened to every day so that says something
Towards the end when Abbie discovers the truth about everything was probably the most suspenseful and memorable.
First time reading James Patterson and will certainly try another, really enjoyed this Audiobook!
Very interesting book and gives good insight into some foreign jails and law enforcement.
No; very well narrated.
Interesting story, suspenseful and was almost ruined by the horrendous French accents. I also thought it was odd that the guards spoke French to the prisoners, but when speaking to the warden, they all spoke English. Probably for the listeners' benefit. The first half of the story was too long, especially information about Abby's trial and experiences in prison...painful. The heroine speaks Spanish, French and English which is the reason for the title of the review. Did she ever get a bed to sleep on? Infidelity is ok if you are rich and 6000 miles away from your spouse. Jealousy is an ugly thing. This story illustrates the saying that money cannot buy you happiness or love. Talk about disposable income! Due to reading other reviews I almost did not read/listen to this story. The story is not choppy. Yes, unrealistic (I hope) because it is fiction. First reaction is that it is awful, but hang in there it does get better.
Abby is in jail and Winnie is murdered in the opening. There are no more surprises in the plot. We pretty much know "who done it" in the first few chapters. The characters and the way the story unfolds is good though. It is well worth a listen.
