This was my first Harlan Coben book. The narrator annoyed me a bit at first (he was a little breathy for me), but I got used to him and started to enjoy his performance. The story definitely kept me guessing - took me a while to figure out the ending, which had just enough twists and turns. Great suspense book!
Sure, it was an interesting story that was well told. Nothing spectacular, but was fun to listen to,
Once you get in to the flow of the book, he helps bring the excitement of the situations more to the fore front.
Yes, seems quite a bit like a book waiting to be made in to a movie.
I gave this 3 stars because I enjoyed it but there wasn't much out of the ordinary for me. It's the kind of thing that I specifically look to audio books for, so I was happy that I selected it.
I didn't know how I would feel about this audio book. I listened mainly because I wasn't due for two new books for a couple more weeks. But, I listened to this story and from the very first chapter, I knew I would enjoy it. The three main characters are brought together again after a murder(?) 17 years ago and as the story unfolded, I must have guessed four different people who could have done the deed and didn't really guess correctly until close to the end of the book. It was simply great. Scott Brick did an excellent narration. I will definitely listen to more stories by this author and narrator.
Yes. It's typical HB, but what he does, he does very well. Great story, suspense, character conflict and development.
Scott Brick reads a lot of HB books, and I generally enjoy him. He's a little melodramatic in his reading, but he's consistently good and knows how to distinguish between different character voices. He makes the listening experience easy.
Loved this book... I stayed up till 3 am to finish this book...
The book just dragged and dragged, it was hard to follow at times,but I love the author, and not just bolitar novels. This was my first real disappointment.
I am usually a fan of Harlan Coben but when he often gets on the subject of love or guilt he gets sappy, writes like a High School student, and sounds like a amatuer. The story is fun to a degree but the depressed characters and much of the sappy dialogue drags the story down. This same soap opera drama and guilt is also evident in Harlan's last few Mayron Bolitar novels. I hope this is a phase he moves pasts soon.
The story caught my attention from the beginning. Even though I guessed who the murderer was 1/2 way through the book, I still want ed to finish the story. I had to know why!
I chose this book for my #JIAM challenge of listening to new to me narrators and with a bonus of a new to me author that I have been meaning to read ,I am so glad I picked this one what a great book and great narration!
I now see why Harlan Coben is so popular here at the library this was a really good mystery, it kept me guessing all the way to the end. Coben’s writing kept me glued and I didn’t want to stop listening. I liked all the different parts of the story and trying to figure out how they all came together. The cop still trying to solve a 17 year old disappearance, the ex-stripper with so much to hide, the ex-photo journalist who has lost everything; how do all these people fit together and why after 17 years is it all coming to a head.
This mystery will keep you guessing and keep you on the edge of your seat, as I said this was my first book by Harlan Coben and it will not be my last.
Scott Brick’s narration was fantastic I just love his deep voice and was impressed with his characterizations. I will be seeking out more from him and I can see now why he has so many fans and I now count myself in that group!
I'm a long time fan of both Harln Coben and Scott Brick, but I had to check the web site again to check on the narrator (thought I had been mistaken). This was not up to his usual skills in narration....so much of the time he read in a breathy style that really began to get on my nerves. What changed? Actually, as the story gained more momentum and suspense, I was bothered less by the narration. The story was good (although a little confusing at first until I got everyone straight) anf then it got better and better. What a VAST improvement over his last Myron Bolitar story, which left me quite angry at him! A pretty good 'sit-longer in-the-parking-lot, drive-around -the-block-twice thriller
