A good story ruined by mundane narration. The narrator sounded bored which distracted from the story. Its hard to get into the tension of the plot when it is read with no emotion. Had I read this before Blue smoke and Murder another story about the St Kilda operatives I would not have gotten it and that would have been a shame as it is another good story but with much better narration.I often wonder if the Author knows just what an awful job some of the narrators do. end result. Get the second book and forget this one.
Anyone that cares nothing about the story but enjoys all the descriptive sex scenes
Unfortunately the 3rd book in the series I bought all 3 and hoping each time I get a glimpse of the Ghost Ops books that I liked
The story could have gone so much further.
No I pretty much said it all in in the review of book 1
It was 80% sex and 20% story, I prefer my books the other way around, very disappointed
not enough story which had some merit, but was overtaken by the unending sex descriptions
She had a good feel for the characters
Not sure why this was in romance sails more to the erotic
I love the In Death Series have read all 36 books, love the back characters as much as the main ones
This one lacked the fast pace usually associated with the In Death Series, not as much action
Love Susan Ericksen, she individualises If thats a word all the characters except for the one hiccup with peabody in an earlier series the characters that she portrays are like old friends
Bring on more In Death books, love them
I found this one slow, too many accounting details which got boring to listen too. Halfway through it I justed wanted Eve to get on with it with her ususal style
Bit slow, not the usual pace and humour.I would not recommend it as a stand alone book as it would be off putting to the rest of the series and that would be a shame.To get the best from this series you need to start at the beginning its the only way to understand the characters and how they all come into play. I discuss the books with my sister who has also listened to the series and we often laugh at the antics of the characters. I love this series and thankfully a new one has been released. Keep them comming. I dont agree with the reviews about the narration,to maintain all the characters throughout 27 books is brilliant. well done Susan. Do yourself a favour, buy book 1 and go from there.
Its often been said in many reviews that to start at the begiing and just keep going is the way to go. ABSOLUTLY. The background characters and their stories are as much a part of this series as the actual gruesome deaths and although each book can each be listened to individually to get the most out of it I feel you need the whole lot. Excellant narration, geat job Susan even though you did have a hiccup with Peabody at one stage. Only 2 to go and I have caught up here's hoping J D Robb has another about to go.
Not as good as "Fast Women" and because i enjoyed that so much I expected more from this one. It had its good moments and did show the authors usual humour.
First Jennifer Crusie book for me but certainly not the last. What a very witty story,good narration,I found myself laughing throughout the book, humour from beginning to end. The women in this book are hilarious,good friends through thick and thin, and mostly in trouble.A thoroughly enjoyable book
I thoroughly enjoyed this book about the St Kilda Operatives so much so that I went looking for any others. The Narrator handle the characters very well. Pity this narrator did not do the first book
What a horror of a book, totally boring and mind numbing. I download to disk and I am struggling at disk 4 I will not be downloading or listening to part 2. enough is enough. what a waste of money. The narrator would be great at reading newspapers thats about all.The story falls far short of what I thought would be a quirky story, instead its mundane and uninteresting. I will never again have anything by this author or narrator. most of all the narrator. I am not sure this book could have been saved with a narrator with any sort of personality I personally dont think so, the drone of his voice and lack of any sort of inflection made me cringe
