I spend a lot of time in airplanes and on the LA freeways. I love my "down time" while working because I am an avid audible listener. I tend to read thrillers, psychological and political are my favorite.

    For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker. The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true; but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    As others have said, the content is disturbing - At times I had to remind myself that this was fiction. This fictional plot is in the news every day. I am not going to write a spoiler but there are two narrators and I didn't realize there was more than one male character. It was a bit confusing at one point and I had to back up a couple of chapters because I felt like I had missed something big leading up to the critical ending of the book.This may have been intended by the author, but I was a bit confused until I remembered another reviewer mentioning something similar. I might have considered either bringing in a third narrator or, possibly change the accent a bit for the other male.I don't like the fact that this format asks for what you would change first and not what you loved about the book. I did really enjoy the plot and it kept me listening as I wanted to know what would happen next. The bad guy is really bad and you never doubt that this character type could actually be real! This is not just some bad guy made up in the author's imagination.The female main character was well developed and I really felt that I knew and understood her. Any normal woman can relate to her life struggles and the author seems to make sure she reacts in a very human (as opposed to super-human) way.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I am usually pretty good at figuring out the endings of these types of books but I didn't get this one right. That is a good thing. The only part of the ending that I thought may have been too over the top was the relationship between Sal and one of the bad guys! Can't say more without spoiling the ending.


    Have you listened to any of Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never heard these narrators before but they were both very good. There is some very disturbing dialog and these two nail it - very realistic.


    Did Say Goodbye inspire you to do anything?

    Actually it did. I discussed the issue of children and child abduction, abuse and the internet as a means for evil to get into our homes, with a friend of mine. This is something I wouldn't have thought about as my children are grown and I never had to deal with this issue when they were young.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the read.

    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    Story

    I love this series and I love the narrator - Kirsten Potter. This is not her best story line but it is good. I am used to have Kirsten read D.D's character, and another narrator read the sub plot characters - not so in this book. The first time another character comes in, I was distracted by hearing Kirsten's voice read their parts. By the third chapter it was no longer an issue but I do like have two readers. I think because I identify Kirsten's voice with the main character's tough, no "BS" personality, I was not able to pick up the "softer" side of the sub-character(s).

    One pleasant surprise was the emergence of D.D's humanity. I like that her life changes have made her more human. More capable of compassion.

    I have enjoyed all of her books. I am just hoping this is not the beginning of a round of books that are pushed out to meet deadlines.

    I have the book a three star overall because of the skinnier than normal plot that I expect from this author and the narrator reading all the characters. I guess I am spoiled.

    Still a good book and a good listen!

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    Story

    I loved the story line, in this book. I guess because I read so many of these type of books, I try to anticipate what is going to happen- I wasn't able to figure out any of the twists this time! that makes a good read for me.

    DD Dodge is a really irritating character for me. She has always seemed one dimensional (you know, black and white but mostly black.) In this book, her humanity is starting to emerge and I actually found myself feeling a bit for her...

    Great read. I hope the next in the series is as good.
