This book is very strange. It is not the latest installment, rather it appears to be an old manuscript that was brushed up and turned into a book. It appears to fit in the middle of the series and unless you know this, the first several chapters are spent in, HUH mode. The characters and dialog are flat. I think it was discarded at some point and then the author went back and tried to make it into a book. The worst of a good series.
This is basically an ok book, although there are a couple of enormous plot holes. It is typical Kate Wilhelm and enjoyable. Barbara Holloway and her dad are there and are well drawn. It was enjoyable, except there were a couple of major things that made me wonder if Kate Wilhelm has watched any modern crime drama television at all. I listened to the book on a long trip with my daughter and she had the same reaction.
The first book in the series was ok and I decided, with reservations to listen to the second. There was a lot of supernatural stuff in the book. I am undecided if I would listen to the next book in the series.
Not a great story, not a bad story, just vaguely unsatisfying. The characters were not particularly well defined or likeable. The plot seemed typical Sandford. Just sort of meh. Not sure I would listen to another one if this set of characters develops into an independent series.
Silly unbelievable story that sounds phoned in. The narrator sounds dead and can't carry the story. I love Harry, but, wow, given the chance now, I would pass.
Reacher has turned into a vigilante and is no longer a likable character. I really dislike the way this series has turned int he last couple of books. Yuck.
Not very satisfying. I had a hard time believing the characters motivations. Nice to see Cole's cat is hanging in there though.
