If you're a fan of patricia cornwell (and Kay Scarpetta) then you will enjoy this book. The narration is done by the same reader as many of her audiobook renditions, her voice is calm and easy to listen to.
I don't listen to books twice but I am a "rewinder" as I love details as I like to picture the scene and there was a fair amount of description of scenes.
Not on the edge of my seat but entertained
She did do a good job of differenetiating the characters but in my mind, Scarpetta has a different, more "attractive" voice
If you like Lucy and have followed her in the prior books, the part where she is happy in the end made me feel good. Also the relationship between Scarpetta and Benton seems real to me.
If you like Cornwell's Scarpetta series, you will enjoy this. I did.
Change the narrator, she was terrible and made the story hard to listen to. I am very disappointed in this one...the voice - terrible for story telling.
Not the audio version, it was horribly done.
A two year old could have done better.
I hope there are more Scarpetta novels, but the audio version read by someone else!
Redo the audio version and give those of us who hated how it was read a chance to listen to it again by someone who can actually do the story justice.
I love the Scarpetta books, but this one was a bit disappointing and slow. I still gave it a pretty high rating as I'm so picky that even a not so great Patricia Cornwell novel is a lot better than so many other authors.
I loved the earlier Kay Scarpetta novels, but have not enjoyed the last couple. This one was just awful. It was just all over the place, and never really fleshed anything out completely. There was too much about Kay's feelings, and not enough about the other characters, and how they related to the plot. Lucy seemed a little more human this time, but poor Marino ends up looking stupid, as always. I had to listen to some of the last parts again to see if I missed something, or if it really was that dumb.
This hasn't turned me off from other books in this genre, but definitely turned me off from Patricia Cornwell.
The narration was awful. She makes Kay and Lucy sound like robots, and her male voices are just silly.
I was hoping for a substantial "older style" Scarpetta mystery - but again was disappointed. The story seems to have no plot, jumps around to different random murders that seem to be connected, yet we can't imagine why and has no more character development. I think it is time to be done with Kay Scarpetta.
I found the narrator to be slightly irritating and her character voices to be odd. She did not add to the books enjoyment, in fact, detracted from it.
It took to long to get to the story plot. Almost stopped the story.
Yes I will not read or lissen to any more by the outher. See need to change her story line.
It seemed the the reader was not into the book shile she read it. I can see why.
The whole first half of the book. It took way to long to get to the story line.
Nothing. I loved Patricia Cornwall 10+ years ago and decided to give her another shot. The characters were the same but the story was mundane. Too many details about the coffee machine in the bathroom. The story didn't grab me. I stopped listening about ten minutes in.
I'm done with Patricia Cornwall.
All of them. Lucy especially.
I was hoping this would be a Patricia Cornwell come back....it was disappointing.....It was a chore listening......I found that the beginning was a tedious long and boring dialogue with much to much description of things that did not really matter....did not enhance the story line, or encourage one to continue the book......it was really hard for me to continue, but I kept hoping it would get better.........
The monotone of the narration did not enhance the experience......
I will not get caught again !
Story fell flat in the middle and I felt that the ending was abrupt.
Not as good as her previous novel Red Mist.
