Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Sam Kovac and Nikki Lyska make a great detective team, Kovak is an old school, loaner, sleuth and Syska is a younger, divorced mother of two. Both are flawed but their flaws only add to their charm, they fit together and offset each other at the same time. Tami Hoag did an outstanding job of making this a stand alone book while keeping it intriguing enough to make me want to start with the first book in the series. The relatability of the characters and the crisscrossing threads of the mystery, helped to keep the pace up and the story interesting.
There is a zombie girl, a serial killer and a kidnapping. What more could you want from an entertaining crime thriller. David Colacci always dose a fabulous job narrating, his voice is perfect for Kovac and even added to Lyska's personality.
Yes, Tami Hoag's books are always good.
Easy to listen to, he's very articulate without being boring.
I loved this book. Great detail into the characters lives. Super story line, keeps you guessing until the end. Can't wait to listen to more from this author.
...but I figured it out way too soon. Tami Hoag writes good books. David Colacci did a good job narrating. Makes for pleasant listening.
this book was very disappointing. Im a big Hoag fan..but this was some what of a let down..and the ending really sucked!!
she was fine
Mediocre authors should be queuing up for David Colacci to be their narrator. He certainly did an excellent job with this far fetched plot and actually made the package quite entertaining and enjoyable. This was a story you always knew was a story; not once did it become credible and if you can accept that then there is no reason not to enjoy this excellently read crime romp.
I very seldom listen to audiobooks a second time. So, no, I would not listen again- but this is not a slight
I thought the performance was compelling and well paced.
I love to listen and read books. I don't waste a minute...I listen when I am driving, cleaning, getting my nails done, etc. Fiction books are my favorites.... mysteries.
I found the first half repetitive and slow. I was waiting for something to happen. Finally the second half started getting interesting and finally the last quarter was intriguing.
Sorry... I finished it because I had to.
This book has a wonderful story line, if you can be patient enough to let it suck you in. It starts out with a suspenseful bang, however between chapters 3 and 10 I almost quite on this book. It got very boring, learning about the two main characters (a pair of detectives) and going about their day to day lives. But when the plot finally got going and they got back to the action, it was hard to put down.
About a quarter of the way into the book, the plot picks up pretty well. This isn't your typical serial killer story, the plot takes you all the through the process of solving this gruesome crime, with many possible suspects, leaving you trying to figure it out along with the detectives the whole time. I was satisfied with the resolution and answers at the end of this story.
I'm a southern girl. His accent of the this gritty Yankee hard nose veteran detective got on my nerves at first. But I got use to it and ended up likeing it. There are a lot of characters in this book, both male and female, and he brought all of them to life. He did a fantastic job.
Don't have a tag line but this would make a good movie.
I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars, It was that good! The narrator was great, as he brought the characters to life, great dramatization of each character. This book kept me at the edge of my seat, and I did not want it to end. You will not be disappointed!
