Futuristic setting for crime stories written by Nora Roberts as JD Robb. Engaging characters, fast paced and good in written or audio format (have both). Though not a graphic "adult" style, some scenes are unsuitable for children so don't listen in front of them.
The crime story in this book stands on its own, even if you have not read book 1 Naked in Death to get the full understanding of who the two main players. But each later book builds on these earlier books so it is best to read in order. Some things are recapped or referred to in this novel to help the story but does not bog you down in a long recap of events.
The reader is excellent. Several distinct character voices throughout the book, easy on the ears and well suited to this series. Will check out other items by this reader.
After seeing the musical on stage and being entralled with the story, I downloaded this book. Was very disappointed to find that the story lines are not the same. The stage play is uplifting overall, with friendship and love. The book is dark, depressing, with betrayal, infidelity, sadness and overall heaviness. I struggled throught the entire book, seeing spark of ideas that were taken into the stage play but no true common ground. Was really looking forward to this book and wish I had not read it. Will not recommend it to anyone. My disappointment is not in the reader, only the story.
LOVED this book. The story is engaging from start to finish. Dramatic and chilling, this story is written on the edge of realistic and possible. Though long, it's a well crafted book with actual historical elements woven into fiction with finesse.
This title was recommended for my European vacation/train trip by a friend knowing that I am not a big fan of 'scary' books. This book is not scary or frightening but has chilling elements making it perfect for me. Each time I turned off my player, I looked forward to the next installment. This is one of the few that I will burn and listen to it again in the future. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
