    A blessed event becomes a nightmare for pregnant homicide detective Jane Rizzoli when she finds herself on the wrong side of a hostage crisis in this timely and relentless new thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of Body Double.

    Overall

    Tess Gerritson always writes a great story and this was no exception. However, I am from Massachusetts and I just couldn't get past Jane Rizolli sounding like a combination of Marisa Tomei in "My Cousin Vinny" and New Jersey's Carmella Soprano.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe readers of romance novels.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gillian Flynn again?

    No


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was okay.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Gone Girl?

    I didn't like any of it so it wasn't an editing problem.


    Any additional comments?

    This book turned me off right from the beginning. The foolish, silly diary, socialite snob and the "feel sorry for me" husband were boring, trite and simplistic. I figured out most of it and only listened to the whole thing because I wanted to see if I was missing something that everyone else seemed to find so fascinating. Part 2 stretched credibility so far it snapped. I really like to have a protagonist to root for (even a serial killer like Dexter is more appealing than these two) but I couldn't stand a single character in this book. I seriously don't get why this is a best seller.
