I don't know how much Clancy was involved with this but it isn't up to the quality that I expect from a Clancy book. Don't waste your time and money.
This book should be on the required reading list for all teenagers and their parents. And, anybody that loves a great mystery-thriller should read it too. WOW!
Good suspense but it goes on for chapters upon chapter without anything happening. Just like John Grisham. Extensive character development down to what they eat for breakfast. The real action occurs in 1 chapter then there's all of the angst of all the characters to wrap it up. Sorry but I can't recommend this but and won't be looking for any others by Susan Hill. This is what I'm coming to call a typical British suspense. Steven Pacey did a good job narrating.
Interesting story. Shows how teens and young adult brains are still mush and it's way too easy for them to screw their lives up with just a few bad choices.
The mystery portion of the book was OK but there was this very sophomoric romance that was a total distraction. Graham needs to decide ahead of time if she's writing a romance or a mystery -- then stick to the plan.
Luke Daniels did a good job with the narration.
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.
