Ellory nailed the story, text and diction of this book. The narrator (who was wonderful) had his work handed to him on a silver platter. I have not enjoyed the cadence of a book more. I only wish I spoke in such perfect english.
Have been a fan of Lisa Gardner for some time. This book offers a great story and the narration is spot on. The building of complete, flawed, sad,and successful characters and families can be tricky, but not for Gardner. Good verses evil but only partially predictable ending. Twists until the very end.
Loved the story, love the narrator and love the authors. What were they thinking when changing narrators in a series. I felt I was reading about all new characters. Not as enjoyable as I was straining to reconnect to history.
I liked the story and I am sure the narrator is fine on his own. My problem with this book is I have followed Lincoln Rhymes through many sagas with the same narrator. Changing narrators at this point in a series makes the characters seem new. My images formed from past novels did not match this one. I found it difficult to feel the connections I previously had with the characters because of the new narrator.
The characters, settings and emotions of this book are expertly built and told. I credit this audiobook as much to the author as the narrator. The characters are flawed, likable, human and so very real. The ability of Bower to cover such a vast array of characters and vernaculars is amazing. This book has jumped to one of my all time favorites ranking up there with Follett's Pillar of the Earth.
The story, characters and narrator is a synergy that really works. This is one of my favorites.
