Not my cup of tea! My first and last Kerry Greenwood novel. To sum it it up, "Much ado about nothing".
O.K. I'll be the "naysayer". The premise was not believable. If you enjoy reading about unremitting torture and the evils of religious cults,then maybe this book is for you. I'm not judging. I just can't believe all the reviewers and I read the same book! I regret I read this one based on the reviews.
Too many love starved women fighting over him. Dumb and dumber. The sex scenes were vulgar and unnecessary Way too much political yada yada.Overall a very dull read. I have read most of the Stone Barrington books but this one was ludicrous. The last one should have warned me not to pr-order. Never again. Even Tony Roberts couldn't save this lemon.
I took a chance on this selection. I thought three books for one credit would just be mediocre at best. I was wrong on all counts. All the books were well written ,and built up to exciting conclusions. Police methods,procedures and jargon were well researched and accurate. Read them in order. They will have more meaning. Len Cariou was an excellent narrator . My one complaint was the music. It was intrusive, off putting and unnecessary. However, don't let that stop you, the stories are still worth your credit.
Found the story distasteful,unpleasant and depressing. I should have known by the cover it wasn't my kind of reading.
It read like a book on two different subjects and I didn't find either one interesting.
The first story was almost tolerable were it not for narrator racing through it at too fast a rate. The stories seemed to run into each other and it became confusing. The reading became faster and faster and I finally gave up.
I didn't finish this book for two reasons. I think it should have been written by a professional writer and narrated by a professional. It was a horrific experience for Miss Dugard and I wish her publisher had given her some expert advise when it came to bringing the story to the readers.
Overall I enjoyed most of this Stone Barrington story. What I didn't care for was all the political "yada yada". Frankly politicians bore me. I'd rather read a police type mystery with a lot of twists and turns.
Adrian Mckinty does it again. Another great book, hard to put down. Gerard Doyle is consistently a marvelous narrator. The stories are gritty, sad, funny and satisfying. I read them out of order, however, if you read the Audible introduction you'll catch on fast. Then you'll be hooked. Enjoy!
I love the Andy Carpenter series! David Rosenfelt has such a terrific,offbeat sense of humor. The characters are so real and have distinct personalities. This courtroom drama was unique and had a surprise ending. No hints! By all means use your credit on this one. I'll be watching for the next episode. Thanks for the enjoyment David, you're a gem. Kudos once again to Grover Gardner.
