I have loved every Linwood Barclay book until this one, which just didn't do it for me.
A bit predictable.
I wouldn't go to see it. There was nobody likeable in the whole book.
This book combines detailed characters with a complex and interesting story. It is told in sections in the first person by Lara and Iris and there are some good subtexts throughout.
I don't recall listening to Imogen Church but I really like her sound and style.
I have a long drive to and from work, and while I was listening to this story I looked forward to the trip so I could keep listening.
This story could have been titled "I have got a husband and a baby and I am the only woman ever to have done this". Pullleeeease!! Nothing happened until the second last chapter when she dumped her husband, admitttedly for a good reason.
I'm going back to the Mysteries and Thrillers list.
Laurel Lefkow is always a good narrator.
In the middle somewhere.
I like Oddy a lot, but the recent stories have had a really unpleasant streak that I don't enjoy. This story gave him the chance to be his nice, goofy self again - while fighting lots of demons, obviously.
Other than Oddy, who is a sweetheart, he teamed up with a crazy old lady called Edie. She is a great, feisty old bird.
This is Jeffrey Deaver at his best, a really rivetting story with no boring bits.
The ability to do the gardening, the washing and go to the gym without having to put it down.
Rhyme and Sachs are such a cute couple.
This story is a B+. It started a bit slow, but turned out to be a good listen.
There was only one good guy in the book - the doc.
I would listen to Jeff Harding reading the telephone directory. He makes everything a great listen.
