Eye opening to the internment camps for the Japanese Americans. Gracious story with twists and turns, love and forgiveness. Nice book, good listen.
What remarkable writing. Where does that come from? I couldn't sleep one night so I started listening to this book. Okay, then I really couldn't sleep! From the very beginning I was mesmerized, scared and intrigued by the story. The prime character Joona Linna is complex and at times endearing. The twists and turns throughout the story will keep you on your toes.
Another great story by Lars Kepler, a pen name. The authors are a man and a woman. Nightmare is truly what its name implies. A wonderful boat trip takes a very wrong turn and will have you on the edge of your seat. Penelope is one hell of a woman, in my opinion and you'll see that as the story progresses. Joona Linna, an investigator, is the main character of the book and has an amazing aptitude for solving cases. Yes, he has secrets of his own too. If you enjoyed this book, try "The Fire Witness", another Lars Kepler novel.
Whether human or pachyderm, loyalty is the essence of the story. Great characters from the dwarf to the hobo to the enforcer. It was heart warming, especially at the end.
Look, if you want a great story with characters that you grow attached to and a story line that goes past one book and has some meat on it, don't get this book. If you want a sci-fi and a series that you can't put down, get the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon. Beyond the Highland Mist is a wannabee copycat, but doesn't make the grade. Save your cash. Move on!
I received this book as a surprise sale so I was skeptical. Regardless, it has a lesson about second chances. It was a good listen.
The series was a good listen. Secrets is the first of the book series followed by Unforgotten then Echoes. I found parts of the book and series to be very slow but it came together in the end. I thought the characters of Rese and Lance to be a bit boring at times, but the knight in shining armour always comes through. Put your headphones on and clean your house. The time will pass.
No one really wins in this story. Having said that, there is some closure at the end of the book and hope for the future.
Story was a bit slow for me, however, it picked up towards the end. If you like Vietnam war stories, you won't be disappointed. Scott Brick is a little weak on the female voice.
I am now a "pretzel". There are so many twists and turns in this novel. Listen! Listen! to the first part of the story. Everything will make sense at the end. Speaking of the end, I was wanting more. Perhaps there will be a sequel.
