It's another of the best in the Eve Dallas series, if I could say it was page turning I would but instead I will say that I couldn't turn it off. The stories are all good but this is one of the best.
It had intrigue, horror, suspense and got to answer some of the questions we have had about Eve (the main chararcter). Simply stunning story
She is now and will always be Eve Dallas....I couldn't after so many books think of her as anyone else. She captures in my mind the true essence of the characters in the series and has made them her own so that they come alive in our imaginations as we listen. Brilliant.!
I am always amazed at how J D Robb can write such horror and suspense and then blend such stories together such as the bride series (as Nora Roberts) which are so joyous and loving - what a talent!!
Eve has a great murder mystery in this book and of course we know she solves the case in her inimitable style but this book really works on the characters and their growth together. Eve and Rourke have developed a deeper understanding of each other since their early days in their marriage and it shows in this story. My image of seeing Peabody in a special pink coat makes me laugh as I can just see her with the matching pink shoes.
It's a great story in the series and a great read. Sit back and enjoy the Christmas Spirit.
I needed to have a light read and chose this book as I have always enjoyed seeing TIm Conway on TV. I was not disappointed with one exception - Though I love hearing Dick Hill in his many roles through Audible books I was disappointed that Tim didn't tell the story himself, however, it was a wonderful life to listen to and made me smile many times with the occasional burst of laughter that made others look at me quizzically!.
Sean Duffy seems to have 9 lives - surviving a hell of beating in America in the previous book to an explosive moment in this one. How does he do it all without a scratch?
I do love listening not only to the storyline and the cultural references of the 1980's with the IRA, the drama with the English Government and the underworld of spy and intrigue but also it has a superb narration.
This was a great read and I am now waiting in expectation for the next installment...where will Sean Duffy go next?
I don't know how Nora Roberts does it, you travel the rollercoaster of sex, drugs and rock n roll and as a reader you can see each scene so clearly. There are characters that you really want to slap for their stupid and egotistical natures. And as for the main character Emma....Grab some tissues, sound the trumpets and get ready for a story that only Roberts can weave.
I do...I do....I do....I do love the characters -Emmy and Booker, I do love the suspense, I so do love the story twists and I so held my breath at the final chapters...and you might say "I do" love too!
Karen Maitland takes us on a journey of a terrifying time in world history her descriptions of the disposals of those who have died of the plague is heart wrenching. The group of travelers who are fleeing the plague are very unusual and each has lived or are living a lie. As each lie is revealed there are remarkable occurrences some more believable than others.The final revelation and twist is worth the wait!
I was hesitant at first when listening to the beginning of the novel and its subject matter, however Conrad Jones really does know how to write a gripping tale that has you asking questions and pointing fingers all the way round.
It was a great story line and the twists and turns. Connelly explains the legality of law proceedings with expert skill and is able to blend them into the story brilliantly. Thoroughly enjoyable!
Simply splendid, such easy listening.
Everyone deserves Justice!
I still love the short connections made with Harry Bosch.
No, I wouldn't jump at reading another book by this author, I found the development of characters very flat and one dimensional, at times confusing. I am not sure if my confusion stemmed from the narrators mix of characters voice changes.."the countess" in particular. I am sorry to say that I didn't persevere to find out who carried out the macabre murders.. Best of luck to those who do persevere.
Confusion and disappointment, something lacking.
The story is mainly told by Maeve Kerrigan who is a strong character who though has great ambitions in the police force is a character who seems normal without major flaws which can often plague the main woman in a book.
This was a book I had listened to after 3 very ordinary stories so this for me was a good, intriguing story line with interesting characters some of whom I'd like to explore further in the next stories written by the author.
Ahh just love the lilt of the Irish.
Not necessarily but I did enjoy listening to each chapter.
