    On a rainy November day, police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: a woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer. On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Nele Neuhaus and/or Robert Fass?

    Probably not. The translation from German to English included an odd combination of German proper names mixed with American slang (e.g. repeatedly referring to prison as "the joint"). This was somewhat annoying, and hurt the flow of the narration. The book itself was surprisingly boring. I liked the concept, but too predictable in many spots.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    No great surprise.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Pace of story was plodding, so yes, the narration matched the pace.


    Did Snow White Must Die inspire you to do anything?

    No

    Seventeen-year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban New Jersey family, captain of the lacrosse team, headed off to college next year with all the hopes and dreams her doting parents can pin on her. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months quickly pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst.

    Linda says: "It's Coben at his best!!"
    "Hard to believe"
    Overall

    The only positive thing I can say about the narration is that it fits the book perfectly. Both are awful. I have usually enjoyed Coben's books, but this one is terrible from start to finish. It seems more like one of those books where someone else takes over and writes for a dead author.

    I will make sure to never download another book read by the narrator. This is the second one and she is inexcusably bad.

    I was forced to give this audiobook one star in the rating. It doesn't even deserve that.

  • Gone Tomorrow: A Jack Reacher Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Lee Child

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Laura says: "Child Needs an Editor"
    "another great Reacher book"
    Overall

    Like every other Jack Reacher book, you get hooked from the very beginning. Dick Hill's reading style is perfect. I couldn't imagine a Reacher audiobook without him.
