This is a good who done it mystery with the perfect blend of sci-fi, suspense and sense. Filled with character intelligence, not easy to forget. Pick this book.
Eagerly anticipating the release of The Broker, I purchased it before any reviews were available. Unless his next novel is free I won't read it and I STRONGLY recommend that you (the reviewer) do not fall prey to those who give this book any credit. I find that a more appropriate title would have been "Boring Broker Learns Italian on the Bleachers". Mr. Grisham please go back and read your earlier work (up to and including The Summons) and find your way back, please! If you (the reviewer) have never read Grisham before do not start here. As I suggested to Mr. Grisham read his early work, it's 5 stars!
Since the pickings have been slim, and I had been awaiting this book's release to Audible, I was very excited to download this title. I cannot say I was disappointed, but I also cannot say I was satisfied. I will say, however, that in hindsight, I would have waited & picked another title. I give this book a three-star rating. It doesn't hold a candle to Scottoline's previous work.
For mystery thriller suspense fans and for those who are intrigued by tornadoes, this is a must read. I enjoyed every minute of this book. The narrator was great, the sound effects are just right (not overdone) and the thrill and suspense keeps you listening until it's over.
The description here on Audible, doesn't do this book justice. It was while I was at a bookstroe that I read the cover of the book (or rather the jacket) and found out how good it sounded. I came right home and began listening to it. Great Ending!!
I discovered City of Masks and was unable to stop listening. Now Cree Black (and friends) are back in this Land of Echoes. I only hope and pray the author is busy writing another installment in this series as I type this. This book is paranormal suspense at its finest! Kudos to Cree - a fresh, new character on the scene with so many more cases to be solved. I will be up late at night listening and experiencing the paranormal plot as it thickens. I find myself so engrossed in the book that the hours fly by. A must read.
What a great find. I was on what was seeming to be a dead end search for a great audio book. Even good would do. Well, determination kept me going and what I found was a great author and a FRESH new character that I have no doubt will find her way to the new and notable category. And, thanks to the reviews from other readers I was able to make my decision without regret. This book truly spooked me. I HIGHLY recommend it to all mystery readers.
Still life statrs out better than it ends. I out it down and read two (2) other books and finished it because I paid for it. It was ok.
You have lost your touch, please get it back. You are one of the all time best legal-thriller authors, but you let me down lately and especially with this book. It's not that it isn't a good book, it is, but you write GREAT books and it isn't a great book. If I had to chose between this book and James Patterson's 3rd Degree, sorry John, but James wins! The Summons was the last great grisham.
Except by himself! This third installment in the Ladies Murder Mystery Club is a sure fire winner! Bravo James (oh and Andrew LOL). Alex Cross has always been my favorite, however these Ladies are most worthy of Alex Cross' company. You must read (listen) to this book right now!
