I thought this book was a story of true crime, so I was very confused about who these people were until about half way through. Obviously, I felt rather silly, but it was a good book nonetheless. I would recommend it to any friend who enjoys mafia fiction.
Yes. This book was was very different from The Godfather. I'd be inclined to give Mr. Puzo the benefit of the doubt and assume his other works can stand on their own.
Athena. Somehow the male author managed to make her sound like a sexy woman. He did a terrific job with all the characters and it would be a pleasure to hear him narrate additional books.
I would be OK with that, but only ONE. Tell us what happened with Cross and Athena, Bethany, Rose; that would be nice. Just don't beat it to death.
This was a very intricate plot, and a superb story. The only caveat - the author asked us to take a giant leap in believing a girl who happened to look exactly like Cassie just happened to stumble into one of her old undercover identities. I struggled with this and the fact that once again, the book was just too long.
The most interesting thing about the story was the house, it's occupants, and all their combined secrets. The least interesting was all the time spent at college. I just didn't care.
Heather has a brilliant accent and as always, a narrator brings you into a story in a way that reading it on your own just can't match.
I think so. I'm looking forward to seeing what unfolds in the next book.
I was confused when, near the end of the book, Cassie mentioned her trip to England. It caught me off guard and took me a few minutes to recognize exactly what she was talking about. Just another subject I'd like to see hashed out in the next book.
Probably not. I enjoyed the book, but it had some fatal flaws.
First of all, it's too long. The author could have cut whole hours out of it and it wouldn't have made a bit of difference. Further, the ending wasn't what I hoped for. Maybe I'll find what I wanted in the remaining books in the series.
There were two - the final conversation between Cassie and Rosalind, and the middle of the night phone call made by a drunk AND sobered Rob.
I bought the rest of the series and I intend to carry on with it.
It was an excellent book with a number of solid twists. It also tied up some lose ends nicely. I would say it is the best book in this series.
As always, it was Vincent Ruiz. Smart, tough, funny, and sympathetic, I always wanted to know more about him and his life.
Yes. He performs consistently well.
It would appear that this series is over. I hope that's not the case, but if we're not to see Joe again, I'm glad the book ended the way it did. I could also read a whole series based around Vincent Ruiz and would love it if the author was leaning in that direction.
The narrator’s delightful accent.
All of the books in this Michael Robotham series are near equally terrific.
The final exchange between Joe and his wife before the book ends.
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
It was a fast, creepy read. The happenings at the Amityville house have been hotly debated for many years, but I couldn't care less. I loved it.
The sick priest and all that befell the colleagues who tried to help him.
Absolutely. The narrator brings you into the events like reading alone never could.
Yes, and I think I managed it in 4 or 5.
The plot was spectacular.
Kimmie's every display of TLC when she was with her most treasured possession.
He did a very good job making the voices sound different.
It made me feel sad for Kimmie. I knew full well what she was, but it was largely the fault of the people who'd damaged her throughout her life. A pitiful creature who did AND didn't deserve her fate.
Really looking forward to the next book!
No, I never listen to anything twice. There is just too much to choose from.
Carl was my favorite. He's a deeply troubled man, crippled with survivors guilt who still manages to hold on to a little shred of the brilliant and shrewd detective he once was. I was also very fond of his assistant Assad, who I think is much more than he pretends to be.
Assad, for sure. He did such a good job with the accent, the timing, the incorrect use of various words that it all made him seem more real.
The first book was very good. The second book was outstanding!
Yes! I loved it and when I finished it, I purchased it for a friend as a gift.
Julian was my favorite character. He evolved completely from start to finish, but one thing was constant - his desire to protect his family.
Julian again, although Dan Butler did a fantastic job with every character.
Julian's actions at the end of the book. You'll have to experience that for yourself to find out if you agree with me.
Why can I not find more Bentley Little on Audible? I hope Audible is working feverishly to make all his books available for download.
Mickey was not your average gangster. He didn't discriminate; he ran with a very diverse crowd. He wasn't a womanizer, (largely due to germophobia), and he didn't kill at random, not people who weren't in the life and certainly not women and children. He was old fashioned, and that's what I liked best about him. What I liked least - I'll have to get back to you on that.
Sure. This book was informative but not overly long.
The narrator did a fair job with this book, but I really think a man should have done the reading. I found it distracting to delve inside the minds of male gangsters when a woman was communicating their thoughts and feelings.
Yes. I loved it and I've already purchased it for a friend.
Ethan. I found his sensitive, funny young Southern gentlemen in love and unwilling to give up very appealing.
Kevin Collins did a superior job narrating this book. He did a fantastic Ethan, but his Amma was truly magnificent.
I wish Lena would have stood up for herself more. The character was young, confused, and troubled, yes, but her near constant need to be saved from everyone and everything grew tiresome quickly. (It didn't stop me from buying every other book in the series this afternoon.)
