i've only read three books so far, that iris and roy have worked on together, and I have loved every single one of them. the stories are great, have unexpected results, and always leave me excited and anticipating the next one.
Kept moving and did not bog down. Was hoping this would be a series. Will look for more mysteries from these authors. Appreciated no foul language or expletive bedroom scenes.
Was looking forward to this book - a music therapist working with children becoming involved in solving a crime. I was so disappointed. The main character was poorly developed and totally unlikeable. In fact all the characters seemed poorly developed and lacking depth. There seemed no reason for their extreme reactions in most situations. I became so frustrated I stopped reading it before the end. I would not bother with another book from this author especially if it had the same main character. I should have taken note of the comments by others who obviously experienced the same disappointment as me.
I'm an avid listener. Audio books are a mini-vacation for me. They fill my "need to read" when I don't have time - which is most of the time. Great element of multi-tasking!
This is a wierd one: a really interesting story with unique characters and a fascinating outcome, but told with really sophomoric dialogue. I was initially interested because the lead character is, like me, a music therapist. Not your typical mystery character. She has some personal history and gifts that make her really unique in the police procedural world. I was able to get past the 8th grade description of the drama and the dialogue between this PhD psychologist and the FBI agents until, at the height of the dramatic action, while jumping over gulfs to save a man, she says to an agent,"if you drop me, you'll not be my favorite person." throughout the last 20 minutes, there are a variety of laughable varieties of this memorable phrase: "I want you to die and be on your way to hell." I don't think I'll listen or read the rest of the series. It really needs a better writer. Cudos to the narrator who made a valiant effort to make dumb dialogue seem dramatically compelling.
No, however, this book is a very good audio choice. The story is interesting and complex. It is well worth my credit.
Yes, More than One. I found this book more interesting than some because it is different, and I found it intelligent not far-fetched which can really disappoint sometimes. Yet, I often enjoy a good fantasy as well.
On the edge of your seat page turner it isn't, but I enjoyed it very much. I recommend it.
An easy read with good suspense. Story line was fun and kept me interested. Narrator easy to listen to.
No, but that is rare for me.
Yes, I would listen again. And frequently I do listen to her books again. Iris Johansen has done it again! She has written a winner. The story line is good and it held my interest throughout the book.
Kendra Michaels is my favorite character. She is so interesting because her character is fully developed in the book. She has great powers of observation but she is human too. She can be related to easily.
No I have not heard her perform that I know of.
The part where she is trying to get her friend that has been shot to wake up from the coma is a very moving part.
I thought this was a really good story by Iris and her son. Their team work definitely shows their talents! Super!!
No but just as good.
It was all enjoyable.
Great as usual.
Films always destroy the book in my view.
