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.
Middle, there have been better.
It would have been better to get to the meat of the story at the beginning of the prison scenes. Other than that it was good.
I love James Patterson! This book was a good story, but there was too much French to English translation. We get the idea that the story is in France, so there is no need to keep translating back and forth. The story was a bit slow for the first half, but once it got going to was good.
