When I read the book description I couldn't wait to listen to this book. When I started listening to it I assumed that it was just going to be slow and the action would pickup. After a couple of hours and several time jumps I was bored and confused and gave up. The only thing that is criminal about this book is that I wasted a credit buying it. Don't waste your time or money on this book.
Apparently everyone loves this narrator but me. I am finding her so irritating that it interferes with my ability to enjoy the book.
She puts emPHAsis in THE wrong plaCES and it drives me crazy. She's trying to read distinctly, I know, and I appreciate that, as it's much better than the mumbling some narrators do, but the emphasis is just distracting.
If I "read" any more of Slaughter's books, I will do so in print.
Great story. Best to read this one after you've read the previous in the series. It wraps up a lot of unanswered questions. I didn't see the end coming, but it made sense, it just worked.
Great background into the history of Will, Amanda, and Evelyn (Faiths mother). Explains so much. I think this is my favorite in the series so far!
I am a wife of 30 years, mother of 4 wonderful grown children and a retired teacher....one of my new goals as I turn 50 this year is to become an author! I listen to one story on audible a week I am an addict!
This book ties together Will's past and present in a tale that keeps you guessing essentially to the end. One of Ms. Gardner's finest books in this series, it brings back the glass ceiling experienced by female cops in the 70s, and finally shows much of why Will Trent is the enigma that he is.
This book is best if read in order of the series, but it is good even without doing so.
It was a good story but very confusing since I listened to over a matter of weeks. It was very confusing with the going back and forth but it all came together the last couple of chapters.
Very well told story weaving together the the past and present. Kept me intrigued and on the edge of my seat to see these two adjacent stories blend together to provide a story about Will Trent's early history resulting in who he is today.
