This was my first Charles Todd book. I know I jumped in the middle, but it was on sale and I like British dectectives. The writing and preformance were wonderful, but the story just left me sad. I know that is not always a bad thing, but I ended up feeling sorry for all of the characters. I would like to see how the main character progresses and might read more from this point. I won't go back and download the first ones as I feel this gave me most of the background I needed.
I always enjoy listening to the audio versions of the In Death books. Susan Ericksen usually does an outstanding job. I was very dissapointed that she made what I consider a careless mistake in the last minutes of the book by changing Nixie's last name. It is correct in the Kindle edition. I hope that this can be corrected. That was the only reason I didn't give the Performance 5 stars.
Loved the latest installment of Eve and the rest. Not as dark as New York to Dallas, so that was nice. Wish we could get more than 2 a year!!
I was looking forward to find a new series to listen to, but was very dissapointed with 7th Victim, in fact I didn't even finish it. For the first time on an audiobook I skipped to the last chapter just to find out "who did it". The author lost me when he had the main character go on with the investigation when her child was in ICU saying "the hospital will call me".
This book is now in my top 3 of the series. Loved watching the team work "undercover". I enjoyed the small part where Peabody is "primary" giving Eve orders!
As always Susan Ericksen was fabulous!
