Abigail getting the sex of John's children wrong on the stand in court was the most disappointing thing. With her eidetic memory she should not have got something that important to her character wrong.
I like very much what Julia did with the story. She really made the story come alive.
Eidetic memory VS delayed justice. Can justice be done?
The thing that struck me about this story is the female lead Liz/Abigail was supposed to have this awesome eidetic memory. We learned Liz came to love the US Marshals protecting her- particular the day shift one John and Terry. They gave her her first experience of a life based on love and respect for her. She learned to love in return. They gave her- her first experience of a pseudo mother/father relationship. She made a point of keeping track of both of the Marshals families through the years she was in hiding. When she finally has her day in court- finally able to seek justice for her friend and the Marshals, she did not remember that John- her loving father figure- had a daughter and a son. This woman with this superb memory said John who gave his life for her, who's family she kept track of for more than ten years, she got on the stand and forgot the the sex of the children? How could she forget that he had a daughter named for Emily Bronte and say instead that John had two sons? She has done everything for this day in court. She wants justice for Julie, John and Terry. And when she get to court. she has a memory error? I don't know. It kind of messed up the Liz/Abigail character for me. Why did she have a memory lapse with her eidetic memory? Did the memory lapse call into doubt her credibility? Did the memory lapse leave a whole big enough for Ilya, his criminal family and cohorts to wiggle out and deny John, Terry and Julie justice? The question really kind of spoiled things for me.
I couldn't stop listening. I never had a dull moment with this book. The narrator did an awesome job with each character. The end even kept me wanting more!!!
Not her best but I did enjoy it... just main character voice slightly annoying but really enjoyed the story line... always luv her suspense novels and this one keeps you intristed till the end
I've shied away from Roberts because her books tend to lean toward the romantic. However this one is really good. It has something for everyone. There is suspense, technology, crime drama, some twists that you wont see coming and, of course, some romance.
The book held my interest all the way. The narration is good as to be transparent. You almost forget someone is reading you a story. This one really made the miles slide by fast.
love it kept me engaged. the story was wonderful! I laugh, cried love all the characters. Decently one of her Bests! the voice changes where great.

Despite intriguing introductory chapter the remainder of the book is a long road to a flop ending. Filled with over the top "steamy" sex scenes too cheesy for this novel to be considered serious, I was truly shocked anyone labeled it a mystery or thriller. It was neither. Overhyped. Wasted my money.
With cyber crimes in the news almost every day, this story is very up-to-date very exciting, fast-paced and with just enough romance to keep it fun!
