I really enjoyed this one as I did the three that preceded it. I thought it was very well thought out and it left me going until the very end. I think Grabenstein gets better at this with each Ceepak mystery he writes. I highly recommend this. I'm going back to read Hell for the Holidays but hope that Grabenstein releases his next Ceepak mystery real soon!
I respectfully disagree with the first two reviews posted on Audible that expressed significant disappointment with this book. Perhaps if this was the first Spenser book I ever read (or listened to) I would have been disappointed. Having not missed a single one since the very beginning more than 20 years ago, this book was exactly along the lines of what I would have expected from Robert Parker. Spenser played his role as he always does, Susan and Hawk added some interesting perspectives, and many of Spenser's old friends played their reliable parts. The story wasn't the best one Mr. Parker ever wrote but it entertained me and I listened my way through it in less than two days and I was satisfied when it ended. I recommend this book most particularly for anyone who likes Spenser. If you haven't read him before, try one of Mr. Parker's earlier Spenser books first and you'll eventually get around to reading this one as you won't be able to stop following Spenser's travails. I can't wait for the next one and I'll happily take Jesse Stone or Virgil and Everett when Spenser is not available as all of Mr. Parker's series are entertaining (but read each series in order if you have the ability to do so--it's much more fun that way!). --A huge fan
I love David Baldacci's books. I've read every one I have been able to get my hands on. I had high expectations for this one but was disappointed early on and stayed disappointed throughout. The plot was extremely far-fetched and clearly Baldacci had a political message he wanted to communicate. I stayed with the book until the end--partly in a hope it would get better and partly because I needed to know how it would end. Having said that, it's the first book I have downloaded in a long while that I would suggest is a definite pass. It's not worth your 15 hours.
