Outstanding book. The colorful/descriptive language and the vocabulary make the book worth reading. On top of that was a well told and fascinating historical story of the creation and consturuction of the great Chicago World Fair of 1893 and embeded in the telling a true crime story of Americas first serial killer. A gripping and fascinating book
THe story line was great--a real detailed description of the culture of Australia coupled with Harry Hole's excellent detective work. The major characters were well developed and the plot was excellent and, as usual, well presented by Nesbo
This one is in the midst of the remainder of the Harry Hole novels--I enjoyed the local detail and sociological description of Australia. Others may think it was too detailed.
Too many different characters presented by changes in audible tone. the deeper basetones were unrecognizable when blended with a Norwegan accent on a drunk or anattempt to convey a Australian accent on a woman. I lost some of the detail of the story. Performance was not good
Probably--I think I will get the book and read it also
Disapointing because of poor performance
Fast moving,continuous excitement. Well plotted and executed--unique stream of thought style--great phrase and word useage--well read/acted. I recommend this.
Loved it--it was my introduction to Lucas Devenport and Sandford's works. Since this one I have read or listened to the entire Devenport series. Well plotted with interesting lead characters. Good stories with excellent local color and description provided.
Excellent story--told in the first person in a fascinating and interesting fashion. Well plotted with a surprise ending--very much unexpected. I recommend the book to those that like drama, suspense and hard-knock type stories
Excellent book--writing interesting and lucid--presented in an interesting and informative manner.
