I love Lisa Unger's books. This one was no different. The way she draws her characters so deeply is quite amazing. Her descriptiveness and the way in which she delves into a character's thoughts and feelings is second to none. You listen to the book and you care about them and more importantly, you understand them not in spite of their inner turmoil but because of it. The reader can relate to her characters, I imagine because we have had some of the very same thoughts and feelings and because of the masterful way in which she tells the story. Along with the beautiful and in depth descriptions (but never to the point of tedium like some authors) there are several mysteries and stories woven together. The narrator, Nancy Linari, does a lovely job and has a soothing voice that is never stilted as though you are "being read to".
I Loved the story. This is not your typical generic storyline. Lots of twists and turns and mystery surrounding the characters.
The third book in the series did not disappoint. Great seat of your pants action from start to finish. I am so glad I found this series and I am looking forward to the next. This rates right up there with Vince Flynn, Brad Thorn and Mark Greaney.
Michael Connelly once again writes a great story. The characters are well done and plot is intriguing. That being said, the narration was so horrific that I almost called my doctor for a Prozac prescription to get through the depressing narration. Titus Welliver made ZERO attempt to distinguish one character from another and his delivery was so dead pan that I almost gave up. Get this one on Kindle or buy the actual book folks.
