I like this book. If it is indeed a true story, it is a remarkable story. It is well written and the characters and their circumstances are good.
It is not a mystery like most but the ending took me by suprise.
If there is anything missing, it is something that is missing from most books written about this black period. Soul searching.
I do not get the ratings. Is this writer really Anne Perry. Typical light reading , no in-depth physiological analyst, repetitious 'it could have been so and so' to expand book, romance ugh. I will listen to it again some day just to see if I change my mind. I just found it a boring read and I could not picture or like characters.
Reader is excellent.
The reader makes characters sound like Santa Claus or Jewish Rabbi. Horrible. Takes away for adventure factor.
Not very descriptive story. More time was spent on aggravating attempt at suspense than thrill of discovery that treasure hunters feel. I did not feel it. Not Indiana Jones but Paw and Paw Kettle.
I cannot agree with the ratings others have given this book. The voices were VERY irritating. The story trended to unbelievable.
Why did I buy this book? I hate knitted garments and refuse to sit around with a knitter. Predictable waste of a good subject. I knew she was someone's daughter the minute she hit the scene.
This book is courtesy of One Click Digital. PLEASE check to see if your library works in conjunction with One Click digital. IT IS FREE. You have to go to library to sign up and it is a little hard to get software right ,but it is so worth it. I love my Audible account but I love the free books I get via my library account via One Click Digital. Also, ck if library has other digital accounts.
Not a bad book. Different plot, likeable characters. However, could someone tell the author that girls do not have Adams apples.
Just too unbelievable, too gory, and I really do not like the snotty know it all characters. The story had some good points ,but to few to get me past the unbelievable TV like forensics and access to information. Doesn't really happen.
I do not know, seems like story is good with describing characters( I like that) but most conversations seem to be distracting tactics and red herring situations. You might say a good example of red herring mystery writing.
This could have been a darn good book. Loved the identifying corpse via earring and final (but unbelievable) ending. Most of the book was taken up with the mystery of which handsome man gets beautiful but struggling woman. No porn or sex though (good thing) Just too much who is the winner and 'this person could have done it because' speculation.(Anne Perry style speculation filler) Give up more clues and let us figure it out for ourselves.
The reader did 1 good voice. However, she never separated Chapters and there was little separation between characters lines. One would be talking and then all of the sudden a different character was telling their story.
I hope you do not start with this book in the series. Definately not my favorite, maybe because I already know the stories of that hurricane and do not like ghost stories ( really don't) The rest of the series is great.
