I have read a large number of Karen Slaughter's books on Will Trent and they are great. The first few books in this series got me hooked. However, in the later books, the new narrator (Kathleen Early) was terrible! She uses all the same inflections, no matter what is going on, so many of the passages sound weird, unbelievable, and distracting. If the story was not so great, I would just quit reading Karen Slaughter's books due to the terrible narration by Kathleen Early.
Great book. Great narrator.
Karen Slaughter books keep you on the edge of your seat. Always twists and turns.
I travel a lot for work and listen to books while driving.
Better than the last book. Love getting Will to open up and seeing that Lena is not all bad. Now Will just needs to follow through with his divorce!!!
Say something about yourself!
get a better narrator, she is so monotone and I cant stand how she pronounces word with wh!
This is book 8 in the Will Trent series. I had not heard any of the prior works by Ms. Slaughter and decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. The characters were three-dimensional, the plotting was very good (even though I figured out who the bad guy was before I was supposed to), and even though it was the 8th book in the series it still provided enough backstory for it to be worthy of a listen. That's rare in one of these series books. It's something you don't get, for example, with the Sandford/Davenport series. So I thought if this book was this good that it was worthwhile to go back and see what the prior books in the series were like. I have gotten through three of them, and they're all very good. I would certainly recommend this series of books.
I have been reading Karin Slaughter's books since I was in high school. This is one of my favorites by Slaughter. I love how she weaves all the characters together in a way that just seems effortless!
Another interesting Will Trent story. Included too much "romance novel" for my taste, but the overall plot was good and the narration was well done.
Faster pacing. The beginning was so incredibly slow. Then towards the end I don't know if I missed hearing parts, but it seemed like things were happening in a sudden and disjointed way.
Absolutely. I love her books, this one just wasn't one of my favorites.
I've seen some negative reviews of Karin Slaughter on Audible and, frankly I just don't get the criticism. I'm a pretty picky reader when it comes to detective fiction and I think all of Slaughter's Will Trent books have been fantastic. This one is no exception. It ranks only behind Triptych as my favorite.
Yes...this was an intricate plot, so I could have missed something....the relationship between Will and Sarah was worth studying again...
Will of course....he has many layers. He is not the typical detective hero...no Lucas davenport...but I am really starting to like him...
Very good narration...she seems to get these characters
Yes! But I had to stretch it out!
I hope there us another book in this series soon!
