This is Jeffrey Deaver at his best, a really rivetting story with no boring bits.
The ability to do the gardening, the washing and go to the gym without having to put it down.
Rhyme and Sachs are such a cute couple.
I would suggest David Baldacci devotes his time to writing for King, Maxwell and Puller and forget Amos Decker, it just doesn't work. How Decker went from cop with magic memory, to down-and-out via personal tragedy, to the police department's latest secret weapon just did not gel. The dots don't seem to connect.
Not a great deal of interest. A real disappointment from an author whose books I usually love.
No complaint about Ron McLarty.
Maybe if it was a cold rainy day and the TV was on the fritz.
I regularly replay all the Andy Carpenter books. They are a bit formulaic, but it's a lovely, friendly formula where the good guys always win (though a couple do become statistics along the way).
Grover Gardner does a great job as narrator, the perfect voice for Andy.
I don't know how I managed to get to the end. A beloved mother and sister dies, and no one seems to bat an eyelid. Within the week the identical twin sister is in bed with the widower. She deserves to be murdered, but sadly is not. A really stupid story about a profoundly stupid woman.
This book combines detailed characters with a complex and interesting story. It is told in sections in the first person by Lara and Iris and there are some good subtexts throughout.
I don't recall listening to Imogen Church but I really like her sound and style.
I have a long drive to and from work, and while I was listening to this story I looked forward to the trip so I could keep listening.
This story could have been titled "I have got a husband and a baby and I am the only woman ever to have done this". Pullleeeease!! Nothing happened until the second last chapter when she dumped her husband, admitttedly for a good reason.
I'm going back to the Mysteries and Thrillers list.
Laurel Lefkow is always a good narrator.
In the middle somewhere.
I like Oddy a lot, but the recent stories have had a really unpleasant streak that I don't enjoy. This story gave him the chance to be his nice, goofy self again - while fighting lots of demons, obviously.
Other than Oddy, who is a sweetheart, he teamed up with a crazy old lady called Edie. She is a great, feisty old bird.
I have loved every Linwood Barclay book until this one, which just didn't do it for me.
A bit predictable.
I wouldn't go to see it. There was nobody likeable in the whole book.
This story is a B+. It started a bit slow, but turned out to be a good listen.
There was only one good guy in the book - the doc.
I would listen to Jeff Harding reading the telephone directory. He makes everything a great listen.
