I love Harlan Conan's books. This is another great one. I usually enjoy Scott Bricks narration but for some reason it bothered me in this book. It is just a bit too dramatic.
Mysteries like this seem to always have things that you can't believe in them. But from scene to scene this one seems true to form. Only near the end are you able to finally get the outcome. it keeps you reading and reading. One of his best.
(I'm wondering if i am alone in this thought. )
What I loved was that the story moved along at a nice pace and didn't linger too long trying to convince the reader of something they already accept. It kept me interested and I could barely stop listening! What I didn't love was the ending. No spoiler, but the ending was a bit of a let-down. For me anyway, it didn't have the same level of thought that the rest of the novel had. However, I am looking forward to reading more by this author and I'm sure most mystery /thriller readers will enjoy it.
A great suspense story. Keep me from wanting to do anything else but listen. Thank God for wireless headset. I can shop, cook, clean and never stop listening
Have you ever had a main character that just grated on your nerves? It took me so long to finish this book because Jake just got on my nerves. I kept putting it down because I wanted to slap him up side the head. The plot for the story was intriguing. The other characters were engrossing. Man falls in love, woman dumps him and weds another. He reads in a campus newsletter , six years later, her "husband" has dead. He decides to go to funeral, discovers "she" is not the widow, so he begins a search to find her. People start dying and he's soon running for his life. He's told to let it go, drop it. But oh no, Jake can't let go and the bodies start piling up. Overall this was a great story but Jake just grated on my nerves. I think he irked me because of the way Scott Brick ( the narrator ) portrayed him. I love Mr. Bricks' narrations but this one of Jake just pissed me off.
