The narrator ruined this book for me. It was truly difficult to concentrate on the story with a narrator reading like an amateur delivering the evening news. As for the storyline, I have always enjoyed the Scarpetta books, but Cornwell has turned the characters into a bunch of snooty, arrogant whiners. Hidden conspiracies run amuck.
If the Audible description actually reflected the contents of this book, it might have been quite good. Instead, "The Perfect Witness" is a paranormal suspense novel with plenty of romantic tension.
The narrator does an adequate, if unmemorable, job with the voice of Allie, the on-the-run, psychic teen daughter of a ruthless mob boss. But when it comes to her mysterious rescuer and love-interest, Mandak, Elisabeth Rodgers delivers a robotic, stilted performance at best.
The sexual tension between Mandak and Allie begins when she is a teenager (ick!) and culminates in her 20s with romantic scenes just bristling with cliched prose and tired dialogue.
I'm afraid this one's better left to the sophomoric set.
If you were hoping for a literary suspense novel, this is not it. It's more like a sappy, romantic character study.
What a gem! Didn't think I'd like this book as much as I did. Interesting character development. Definitely plan to continue the series.
As a fan of this series, I have been waiting for the latest release, and it certainly didn't disappoint. A riveting listen.
With twists and turns galore, this is not your average murder mystery. Set in colonial (I know! Just trust me.) South Carolina, it's filled with dark, volatile characters, and plenty of intrigue, all delivered in pitch-perfect narration. On my way to purchasing the sequel as soon as I post this review.
This moving epic had me intrigued from the start. Startling, sorrowful and often down-right hilarious. Don't miss it.
Very disappointing, Had a hard time with the narration, and the story was disappointing. An incredible let-down
What a page-turner. Could not stop listening til the very end, and then wanted more!
Absolutely. Have always enjoyed Faye Kellerman's book.
Not great, but fine.
It's not the characters that bother me, but the dialogue and storyline that didn't engross me like previous books in the series.
Storyline was a bit tired.
