I initially had a hard time getting into this story, and thought I would need to go back and listen to the beginning again, but I decided to just keep listening, and it was an excellent mystery, with ties back into the past and all the things that make it fun to read detective mysteries.
The narrator of this book, Christian Rummel, does a great job with all the various accents in the book. It made it easy to listen to and easy to keep track of the characters. It's complicated to explain all the American cultural aspects of this book, but let's just say there are a lot of them, and I'm glad I listened to it.
At first I thought the narrator of this book, Jenna Lamia, was going to be hard to listen to for the entire book because she has a very child like voice, but as new characters were introduced, the depth of her abilities became apparent. She's very talented at bringing the various characters to life, and I have now looked for other books narrated by her. I loved this story. It warmed my heart.
Most of these mysteries are gripping and interesting, and I enjoyed listening to them. There were a few that I didn't care for, but in the absence of other new novels by Faye Kellerman, this was worth listening to.
This one was just as good as all the other Peter Decker novels. Exciting and fun.
For anyone who is interested in the mixture of American history, relationships, and cultural diversity, this is a beautiful book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Heart wrenching, emotional, maddening at times. Beautifully written and narrated.
I normally limit my audio book listening to the gym and long car rides, but this one is so excellent, I had to finish it at home. Wonderful insight into the relationships between white households and black household help in the 1960s. Sad, happy, emotional.
I love Margaret Frazer's novels about Dame Frevisse. If you're at all interested in history and what peoples' lives were like in England in the 1400s, you'll enjoy these books. This one intelligent, exciting, and fascinating.
This story covers a long time frame, and takes an unexpected twist when it lasts all the way through WW II. It's a beautiful story, especially if you like romance.
