This was a great way to tell this period story through Alex Cross' character. However, it should have been titled differently. That's why I couldn't give 5 stars overall. The narrator was very good and the story had me on the edge a few times. Like "The Help", this was an uncomfortable time and even though this is fiction, it draws on real life situations of the time. Read the synopsis first before you buy it. Be prepared to see things another way.
It needed maybe 1 or 2 more chapters at the end of the book. I felt a like I was left hanging a bit.
I would but I would warn them that it's pretty predictable. However, I like the he said/she said concept of presentation.
I like that there are different people narrating the book. However, the production leaves a little bit to be desired when I can hear the narrator swallowing while reading.
I have been a fan of Denene and Nick for many years and I think they should write more together. But I would invest in a really good editor to round out the story line. You are both very talented writers and you are doing yourselves an injustice not to put out complete work.
funny, intriging and even suspenseful
Not on the edge but close enough
Grover has a way of giving each character their own personality.
If you're looking for a funny murder mystery series, this is it. I haven't gotten to a bad book yet.
I started this series on a recommendation from a friend. It wasn't that bad. The lead in was a bit slow but once the story got going it was pretty good. If you like sci-fi, this would be a good book for you.
Agent Predergast is the truth! Funny but dry wit.
Same as the book.
the story line was very convoluted. Even though Reacher usually stumbles into situations, how he gets into this one was kinda dumb. I won't spoil it for you. Plus the usual action that I have come to expect from Jack was not there until almost the very end. I think you could probably skip this book in the series and not miss anything.
Had to get used to Dick's performance, but now he's JR to me. He may need to have someone else do the female voices though.
I'm comparing all of the Sophie Katz mysteries and this is one of the best storylines of the bunch. I also like the progression of the characters.
I don't want to be a spoiler but I love when Sophie makes assumptions before she has all the facts but always ends up in the right place.
Gabra does a fantastic job distinguishing the characters. She gets you to care about them and what's going on in their lives individually and collectively.
I stumbled onto this series and I eagerly await the next installment. Kyra Davis is a writer that should not be passed on. I could easily see this on TV or in the movies. Not network though, cable.
I love anything Spenser.
I like Joe Mantegna as the narrator
Joe brings each character to life. He changes inflections appropriately.
I always love the relationship with Spenser and Susan. I like that she had a more prominant role in this book. Since Mr. Parker is gone, we have to savor what he's left us.
I've read all of the Camel Club books. This book has a riveting storyline. Some additional characters are added to the mix to make it more interesting. You also get more clarification on Oliver Stone. I won't give away any plots, just get the book. You will not be dissappointed.
I started this series on a whim and because I wanted to see if Samuel L. Jackson was a good narrator. Well........he's great! I enjoyed the story line as well. Looking forward to the next book with another one of my favorite narrators, Dion Graham.
Dion, you've got some big shoes to fill!
Maybe by Alex not by Lisette.
The ends tied up nicely
The way Ms. Lecat pronounced the names of the characters got in the way of listening to the story. I'm sure that she was taking into consideration the dialect but I had a hard time listening and grabbing onto the story.
I've seen the show on HBO with Jill Scott. That's what made me look for the books.
Find another narrator
