    Tumba, Sweden. A triple homicide—all the victims from the same family—captivates Detective Inspector Joona Linna. The killer is at large, and it appears that the elder sister of the family escaped the carnage; it seems only a matter of time until she, too, is murdered. But where can Linna begin? The only surviving witness is the boy whose mother, father, and little sister were killed before his eyes. He has suffered more than 100 knife wounds and lapsed into a state of shock. He’s in no condition to be questioned....

    Watson says: "Suspense for suspense's sake"
    "Compared to Steig Larsson?"
    Overall

    I can find few similarities to the Millennium Trilogy....this book is depressing, dreary, and goes from one dismal scene to another. Can't finish, wish I hadn't purchased it

    Jane Whitefield is a Native American guide who leads solitary outcasts through hostile territory to escape the vengeance of their enemies. But the shaded forest paths her Seneca ancestors might have followed on such missions have all been converted to superhighways, and now the safest way stations are crowded urban buildings that offer the camouflage of anonymity. Still, the supply of runaways - and the need for a woman who will take great risks to save them - have never been greater.

    Story

    Native American woman, Jane Whitefield helps people disappear. She is thoughtful, clever and resourceful. The plot is suspenseful and riveting, I find myself caught up in the story right away and prefer listening to it over most other books. I own all of the Jane Whitefield books, and listen to them at least once a year. This is the first book in the series, so the differences in technology are interesting. Jane evolves with the times, so book #7 has different challenges. Excellent work.

    It’s the early 1980s—the country is in a deep recession, and life after college is harder than ever. In the cafés on College Hill, the wised-up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to Talking Heads. But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.

    Story

    Detailed descriptions that just didn't seem to go anywhere....

    I often re-listen to audiobooks in my library, but not this one. I was looking forward to another book from this author that was as good as Middlesex, but this book fell far short. I would not recommend it.
