I really enjoyed this current addition to the "Prey" series. The focus was really on the crimes and included several twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. The overall production was slick and the flow was great. I recommend this as a great summer beach read or for a long road trip. I found myself not wanting to turn the story off.
I thought this was one of the best of Brian Freeman's books. There were a number of twists and turns that I didn't see coming, and the character development was good. I also really enjoyed the continuity from the start of the book to the end. Details in the beginning turned out to be important in the end (I'm trying not to spoil anything!). This continuity made the book feel "complete" and "closed" with this particular case. I can't think of any open threads, which leaves the characters open to move on to the next case.
This is a great story with a number of inter-woven plots that fit together very well. As always, David includes a ton of humor in with the mystery and the overall effect is one enjoyable experience. And there were a number of surprises in this story that I would not have expected from Andy Carpenter, even after listening to the whole series.
This was a really fun and modern take on the horror story genre. The characters were a tad bit confusing, but the story was great. I generally had shivers and could see this as a real story. The forward by the author made that feeling even stronger. I highly recommend this to any Stephen King horror fan as the story strongly reminded me of something he would right. The story moves quickly and has fantastic sub-plots. Enjoy!
I debated whether to purchase this book, and decided I really wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get through half. It was just too difficult to follow through the memory loss and it was depressing to me as I get older to think about experiencing the same challenges.
I love David Rosenfelt's writing and his fantastic sense of humor. I thought this was a really good book with a great performance. The premise is really amazing, and I appreciated that it had a basis in reality instead of being considered of supernatural organization. The pace is fast and appropriate and the story feels real with many possible details.
Once again, another fun and lively Andy Carpenter novel with all our favorite characters. The thing in David's novels that always leaves me wanting more is all the humor they contain. I end up laughing out loud at many inappropriate moments. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes their suspense mixed with laughter. There's no better author in this genre and this is still my favorite series by far.
I've always enjoyed David's books, but this one was outstanding. I thought the story was very tightly written and extremely suspenseful. Throughout the book, you could almost feel the clock ticking down while following the twisted path. The story line was very topical and complex without being too confusing. Even though "fracking" is the protester issue du jour, David put a great spin on it and used that to his advantage. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a suspenseful, fast-moving thriller.
This was the best Brian Freeman novel I've listened to so far. I thought the storyline was well written and certainly wasn't predictable. The feeling of the rural area was communicated well, and the story all tied together in the end, even though I thought there would be loose ends. My only concern was that there is quite a bit of violence, but I don't know that's unusual in most thrillers these days.
If you've gotten this far, then you know the basic premise of the book. I've told several friends to read it, because it's the best thought-out time travel book I've read. Every time I had a questions during the book, like "how would that work?" or "what if...?" it was answered in the book almost as soon as the question popped into my mind. I did think the book dragged just a little in the middle, but it picked back up again shortly. And I loved the ending. If time travel were really possible, then this would be how it could work and what the consequences would be. Definitely put this one on your "to read" list, you won't be disappointed. And don't be put off by the length, the only issue is that you won't get much sleep because you won't want to turn it off!
This book begins with an interesting ethical dilemma that is carried throughout the book. I loved the storyline and where Mr. Rosenfelt took it. There were enough twists and turns that it kept me guessing all the way through and I didn't predict the ending at all. My very minor complaint would be that the narrator tried a little too hard to differentiate all the character voices, and it wasn't always successful. This is a great summer read!
