Definitely not one of his best ones...mediocre at best. Predictable, bad plot and 2 stories going on with 1 not coming to a conclusion. It tries to be fast paced and have action, but it falls terribly flat. I can honestly say this is probably one of the worst ones I have read by Patterson. And "Kill Alex Cross" really has nothing to do with the story. It's like slap a shabby title on an even shabbier manuscript and call it a day. I can withstand the mundane, but this was just way below what I expected from Patterson...and Alex Cross!
Probably one of the best Alex Cross Novels in a long time. This one took me completely by surprise. It takes Alex Cross to the darkest place in his life but no spoilers here - you'll have to read it to find out. Enjoyed more details about the kids and moved along at a nice pace - keeps you guessing to a point. If you haven't read any books in the Alex Cross series I think you can pick this one up without being totally lost though after this one you will want to read all of the others. Very much enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next...you'll see why once you read it :)
Michael Connelly rarely disappoints me with his novels and this one was another great read. A must buy for Connelly fans, of course. If you haven't read any of the Lincoln Lawyer Series I suggest you start from the first one. Review: Great read. Does not disappoint. Peter Giles is a great narrator and M.C. is a great writer - what else can I say?
This was one of Lisa Gardner's best novels and I like the way she brought back a previous character - gave it a good twist. Love her type of story telling - narration. She always keeps you guessing. Great, great read. Lisa Gardner fans must buy and if you are just starting - this is a good read, but you may want to start a few back so you are more familiar with some of the characters. ALL of Lisa Gardner books are worth a credit. This is another one I could not put down so make sure you have lots of time to read it or can push the pause or stop button. Unfortunately it kept me up till the wee hours of the morning twice! Great performance, story, characters - every detail is fantastic. Highly recommend this book. Glad I pre-ordered it. Spend your credit, you won't be sorry.
Another great read by Jonathan Kellerman. Love John Rubinstein performance - does Milo Sturgis and Alex Deleware so great! Good plot - always keeps you guessing till the end. Good cast of characters with a few story lines going on. Very much enjoyed Guilt. In fact I could not stop listening - kept me up till the wee hours of the morning so...warning...make sure you have plenty of time to listen or have the will power to hit "pause". Highly recommend Guilt. If you have not read a Kellerman novel before, this is a good one to start with - gives you enough background on the two main characters so you don't feel you have missed out. Not sorry at all I pre-ordered this book. And, unlike some popular authors, Kellerman still delivers a long (time wise) novel even though his books are wildly popular. (Some authors give you only 6-7 hours per book.) Again, a great addictive read.
This was the 2nd David Ellis book I purchased never having read the author before. David Ellis writes similar to John Grisham with a Jonathan Kellerman or James Patterson thriller/mystery edge. Jason Kolarich digs deep to solve his cases. Love the sarcasm and attitude of main character - Jason. Was extremely pleased with this book. Highly recommend this author. I don't think you need to read the books in order, but you may want to since this is the best one. Great performance by Luke Daniels - compared to others - he really becomes Jason in this book - really developed the character. I'm reading "Hidden Man" right now and it is just as good except the narrator hasn't quite come into character - but still a good mystery/thriller/lawyer jargon book. You won't be sorry if you become a David Ellis fan!
If you have been reading the numbered series by Evanovich then, of course, you will purchase this one as I did. I liked the book and love the narrator, but the storyline is predictable and the book is less than 7 hours. Her first ones were a lot better. If you have not read the numbered series DO NOT start with this one - go to the beginning. Not much action in this one. The usual laughs and mishaps so I'd have to say it was good - just disappointed that they seem to be getting shorter and less interesting. I felt as though this one was pumped out to meet a deadline, but that Evanovich's heart wasn't in it. Spend the credit or wait till it goes on sale if you can.
This is a great read for dog lovers and well worth the credit even if you are not. Crais is an excellent writer and the narration was great. Good storyline and an overall great read. I probably liked it more than the average reader because one of the characters is a dog, but it's a great story even if you are not a "dog person". What else can I say? You won't be sorry you purchased this book and if you have never read Robert Crais - purchase anything by him and you will be hooked.
I would not have purchased this book had it not been for another reviewer stating that they were glad they read reviews and not just the publisher's description. Had it not been for that review I would have passed this great book up and possibly another author to watch. I think the book was great and Ray Porter, the narrator did an excellent job. The premise is unique and the characters are likable. I could not stop listening - it sucked me in within the first 30 minutes. The only thing I didn't really like was near the end - got a little too 'supernatural' for me, but overall it was a small and mild dislike compared to the rest of the novel. The story builds up and is mysterious and has you constantly guessing. Buy this book - you won't regret the purchase.
This was the first book I purchased by this author - story sounded good and love Scott Brick narrating anything. Was extremely pleased with entire performance from story to twists and turns - plot, characters, etc. I read a lot of mystery/thriller books by well known authors. I don't know if Hurwitz is well known, but his books are fantastic. I purchased "They're Watching" as soon as I finished this one. I did think this one was better, but was not disappointed by the other at all. I am looking to purchase more of his books right now. If you haven't read this author, you will be pleased you bought this book.
Never read this author before and synopsis sounded pretty good. So, between that and Scott Brick reading I thought I'd take a chance. So good - bought another one right away. Scott Brick can make the worst story good, but this was an excellent book by Gregg Hurwitz. Good plot, action, suspense - no drivel, long drawn-out romantic scenes or bad writing that just doesn't make sense. Excellent read and highly recommend if you like mystery, thriller or if you just want a good book to listen to. Good twists and turns, builds up to "who is really watching". Was extremely pleased. Going now to look at his other ones and purchase some more.
