Ray Porter, narrator, nailed this character and made this a 5-star audiobook. I want more.
Solid story, interesting characters, nice tension, not too much violence -- a good purchase. For my taste there's too much character development of the coppers but this seems to be a very British trait in murder mysteries -- at least in those I've read in the last 5 years.
Excellent performance by James Langton -- did not detract or intrude on the story but helped to showcase the story and characters.
Solid plot, interesting characters, crisp dialogue -- what else could you ask for. A Winner!
The story set in Key West with some suspense that turns out to be an average mystery that is ruined by the narrator and her pronunciation of common items. Her accent is distracting and combined with the main characters wishy-washy mental stability makes for a messy disappointing audiobook.
Light fare with this little murder mystery (only one gruesome murder). Interesting characters but the main character's fiance is too good to be true. Ms. Swanson wrote another middle-of-the-road story.
Christine Leto does a good job with a narration.
The technical & procedural parts of the Scarpetta stories are fantastic but I am so tired of the depressing Benton, the desperate Marino, and the dysfunctional Lucy. I would love for Scarpetta to be dropped into a location where none of the usual cast are present and she has to solve a murder. But, the Benton, Marino, & Lucy characters got stale 10 stories ago.
Hey Patricia, enough is enough!
An intriguing story full of memorable characters sprinkled with some great wit. I'd love to read a sequel to this story.
First, when you read the description it doesn't say anything about this belonging in the Christian fiction category. The main female character has a nickname for God -- "Lovely". What?!?!
Second, it isn't a police mystery it is stalker romance. The main male character actually stalks the female lead character. Very creepy. But, it's written as a christian romance.
This was so awful I'm not claiming the Refund just so I can write this realistic review. (If you claim a Refund, the system doesn't allow you to write a review. I think that's how Audible keeps the book review ratings high. It really isn't fair.)
Suspense from beginning to end. I do like Crais' writing and this one is top drawer. And, I've never owned a dog. Read (listen to) the story and you'll understand my comment. You won't be disappointed.
This was given as a free "gift" by Audible. It wasn't a gift, it was a waste of time. Your time would be better spent clipping your toe nails.
This book is fantastic. It has all the elements that you want from your favorite authors all rolled into an incredibly suspenseful, thrilling story.
And if you have any plans on boarding anything larger than a dingy, do not read this story the night before departure. Do you remember "Airport" (1970) and impact it had on everyone who had to take a flight soon after watching it. Well, this story is going to effect folks who "take to the water" in the same way forever too.
There is also wonderful commentary about the behemoth ships that wonder the world to quench our never ending craving for oil. It is as hard to comprehend their size as it is to grasp the size of the Universe. And the threat that they pose to the entire planet is just a hull plate away.
Gosh, just get the book, take your Dramamine, and enjoy this thrilling journey.
