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!!
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.
I would love to listen to it again but I am sorry George the narrator sounded like he was whispering throughout - maybe it's my old ipod.
The intrigue, the family plots, the twists and the agony of family money and power can be felt as Christopher unfolds his story to us.
Only to the narration but I will read Christopher Smith again.
I just loved listening to this story as it was a classic in it's formulae. Little tweeks through the story make it a good read.
Jane is a great character and so are the others around her. The murderer is a surprise and that was a nice twist but on hindsight there had been clues!
Kate Maquire continues her story in this book and its great to travel with her as she solves another confounding mystery. Graham Masterons imagination is definately gory and most definately in parts gross but at the same time I wanted to know what and who were behind those masks. The effort that he puts into every death is truly amazing and horrifying and the next death worse than the last it can make the jaw drop in horror!
