I absolutely LOVE Iris Johansen and all of her "Eve Duncan" books. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. I was excited about reading or listening to something else by her. Unfortunately, this book has the same reader- Jennifer Van Dyke who uses the same voices and accents for all of the Eve Duncan books. While the book was very good-- it was hard to remember who was who. I kept thinking I was hearing Eve Duncan and Montalvo instead of the characters in this book.
It is a great read and like all of Johansen's books, very easy and at the same time, very engaging and edge of your seat action at times. I will probably listen again.
The ending makes up for the first half of the book. I was bored to tears and zoned out many times in my car listening to the scenery and descriptions of everything. It felt like watching grass grow. In fact, I could leave and come back 30 minutes later and not miss anything important. But, finally, the story picks up and somehow I actually started caring about the characters. The second half of the book was much better because it seemed like more happened and was a bit more dramatic. I was glad when it was over, however.
Couldn't get past the first hour because of having to wade through all the blood and killing.
I love Dean Koontz books and found this one better and a little more believable- at first anyway. I love the fact that dogs play such an important role in this book and highlights the rescue/ adoption system in this country. It is something that has never been done before in mainstream books and I came away from the book with a sense of pride that I got my dog from a shelter also.
The book has a great storyline and has a lot of twists and turns- even though it was predictable.
