I am falling in love with John Ceepak. A veteran of Afghanistan turned cop in a beach town Ceepak cannot tell a lie nor tolerate those who do. These light mysteries are totally entertaining. A great bargain when you buy the Kindle book first.
Overall the story was a bit long but the characters were fun. It only seemed to drag when the brothers were not around. I am sure I will listen to this again one day and I will have to get any future releases with this family.
I had been wanting to get something by this author but am glad I did not spend a credit. The daily deal price of $2.95 was about what this book was worth. If you want a whole lot of sex and very little plot or character development you will like it.
I love Pendergast but this may be the end of the line for me. I like Corrie and was fine with a story that centered around her, but the violence in this story is disturbing and sickening. I finally skipped to the end just so I could see how it ended but the fact that the crimes were against children and animals was more than I could take.
I can't even begin to describe how bad this book is. Even worse if you are from North Carolina and get offended by stereotypes and blatant errors in geography.
I have so tired of violence and sappy romances. This book filled a need for something different. Most of all this book is the story of something I really needed right now - faith and hope.
This book is one of my favorites in the series because it is so heartbreaking. The victims and the killer are so sad. The story of Eve and Roarke will tug at your heartstrings as well.
I really liked this book and would have given it 5 stars but for the graphic violence. There is a lot about the killer and his mentality - probably too much, but I fault the editor for that. I found myself removing my earbuds during the violent scenes - so be warned. But I loved how Eve has come to value the people in her life more than her career. I love the family - especially the football game and Granny fussing at Roarke. It was funny and touching. It sets the scene for the books ahead we all crave.
This is a good book but it does not have a happy ending. The story is told well and the characters are very real. You see where things are headed but are drawn in to the details. It will leave you thinking about it for weeks to come.
Normally Gregg Hurwitz and Scott Brick would be a winning combination but this book just does not work. When I get a book by this author I expect a hang-on-to-your-seat thrill ride. The first 8 hours of this book are about as exciting as watching paint dry. Even when the pace picks up it is just very anticlimactic. I liked the main character but just never really connected with him or any of the others. And I knew who the bad guy was way before I should have. There were some thought-provoking moments and spurts of excellent writing but it was just not up to the normal standards of this writer.
I really like the Beck Casey character but the story of this book is just not as good as Final Epidemic. Maybe it was more espionage and less family but it did not draw me in and hold me. I do look forward to more of this series though as they are well written books.
