While this wasn't one of my favorite books in the series, I still enjoyed the book. Really enjoyed that Kidd was included in the book (from his Kidd and LuEllen series), probably my favorite part. Lucas is aging well, and like always, it was a pleasure to read one of Sandford's books.
I have read this series from the beginning and have enjoyed the series and always excited to see another book has come out, can't believe this is number 37! I have grown to love all the characters which have been so nicely developed over the years. Eve and Roarke's adventures will always be a favorite of mine. But, I have to say that some of the violence in the book is so graphically detailed it is disturbing. I understand that the bad guy is a sick, twisted criminal, as the whole series revolves around a futuristic homicide detective, but I don't need explicit details about how he carves up people and gets off on it. Being a fan of the police procedural genre, I have read many books which revolve around homicide that convey to the reader that same sense of out of control insanity, without a blow by blow account of every detail.
Really enjoy these novels. The characters are unique and interesting. A well developed world and the main characters are believable, interesting and have a good sense of humor. Urban Fantasy at its best. As soon as the story ended I was eagerly anticipating the next in the series, what more could an author ask for?
At one time, this series was one of my favorites, but somewhere along the line the train left the track. To be honest I had to go back and reread the synopsis of previous books because I felt lost and not sure where we were in the story. I realized, I remembered the first 2/3s of the series or so with no problem, the last few books, not so much. They just went on and on about stuff I didn't care about. The interaction between the characters I wanted to hear about was missing and the stories felt forced. While I am very sad to see the series finish, I think it is probably a good thing. In a way, I wish I wouldn't have read the last book, as I think I could have imagined a more self gratifying path to send Sookie and friend's along.
Recently discovered this wonderful series. Great characters, page turning plot, and well written. Every book in the series is capable of standing on its own, but I recommend that you start at the beginning, The Cold Dish.
I am surprised by how much I enjoy this series, which is not what I typically read. The characters are so well written that it's hard to believe they are not real people. Fast paced story which always keeps you guessing, the narration is excellent, what more could you ask for? While each book could easily stand on its own, start at the beginning, you will not regret it.
At first, I wasn't sure if I liked the story, but after listening for an hour or so, I was hooked. Great story, equally good narration. Will be reading Book 2 shortly.
Very well written. Within a few pages you feel like the characters in the book are old friends. The story is entertaining and moves along briskly. Between the great writing and the narration you feel like you are curled up around a fire listening to a story on a cold winter's night. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book and can't wait to listen to the others in the series.
Put off reading this book thinking I would not like it as much as the previous books in the seried as it focused on Andrea rather than Kate. Could not have more wrong. Ms. Andrews has a gift for making her srong female leads believable and human. Book adds depth to this great series yet could be read on its own.
Great story, fast paced and well read. Enjoyed this book more than book 4 of the series. Already looking forward to the next book!
