An abridged version of this would be terrific. I found myself thinking "get on with it" or "who cares" so often in this book that it really dulled the enjoyment of it.
I was very glad I had seen a couple of the TV shows staring "Jesse Stone". It gave immediate faces etc. to many of the characters. The star of the TV show has a voice and inflections extremely close to Robert Forster.
A good story and fun listen.
A wonderful chase story with many twists and turns. Great characters, but the detail in the book goes on and on. The author explains many situations to a degree that I found frustrating. It is a great book, with surprise? ending.
If this is your first Peter Clines book, be prepared for the unexpected ... frequently. What a mind. This trip of fantasy is like no other. You will enjoy every minute. Ray Porter does a fantastic job. Have fun!
75% of this book was just the sisters giggling and laughing, and drinking wine.
There was no suspense or mystery to the book, just the author's willingness to describe, in great detail, the punishment they want to inflict on men's bodies. They also enjoyed reliving the past punishments. Trash talk at it's worst.
I believe you could pass this one over, and not miss a thing...
The action, unlike Baldacci, doesn't start until the mid 20's chapters. David seems to feel we really, really need to get into the head of a hit man. So he spends many chapters going over, and over the same things so we remember!
After that slugfest, the action begins. The readers are fantastic and truly make the book.
This is not one of Baldacci's best, but not bad.
I love Harlan, but this book felt like he just needed to fill as many pages as possible. I also love Scott Brick, but his sing song rhythm got to me with this book.
The mystery part of the book is fantastic and goes in many ways. Quite fun to be sure.
I am a thriller / action lover. This pure mystery book was such a surprise. I loved it. Normally I would get bored and move on ... not with this fantastic story. The reader was great with the main character, BUT not so good with other characters. You could not distinguish between the characters, or even if they were male or female. I would suggest you make a list of the characters so that you can keep them straight. Other than that, sit back and enjoy one fantastic mystery.
Whew, talk about majoring in minor things ... plus repeating and repeating and repeating. Not a great Mitch Rap book.
There were so many times I just wanted to scream, "Oh get on with it." Talk about page fillers! Perfect candidate for abridged.
If I heard about his dam car or dog one more time ..............
Many reviewers disagree ... thank god for differences.
The overall Mystery idea was great ... finally.
Reader was not good with female voices.
This is not a thriller, and could barely be called a mystery. It is just a day to day operation of a police station, and all the frustrations they go through trying to catch the bad guys.
They use the F___ word so many times, you would think they were young boys experimenting with their first really bad word. I would guess it is used easily over 100 times!
The reader was fantastic and very enjoyable. Perhaps he is the only reason I did not throw this one against the wall !!
