This is the first book I have read in the Tami Hoag series & I so enjoyed it for a number of reasons. First the story line is very good. It is filled with mystery, intrigue & not over the top with continuous gore. I just couldn't put this book down & I was glad my car was in the shop for 5 days so I could keep listening day & night. Second, the characters are so together & interesting & true to life & the twist & turns in the story only add to the unexpected suspense. Three, I especially appreciate a book where I can honestly learn something from the text & this book filled that void very well. It reminded me of the old 'Cat Who Murder Mysteries', by Lillian Braun. Four, the narration itself by David Collacci was worth the listen & was excellent. He made me want to become a narrator - go figure. But there was more than just reading the book, I felt like I was watching a live play on stage with so much talented verbal input. Five, but what was so neat was the wonderful humor cast throughout the book itself. I was glad there was no one around to hear me laughing out loud. When I find a book that can do that without destroying the main jest of the book I am in seventh heaven. I give this book a big Kudo & will be looking for more from this author. To me it had it all.
P. S. And even though I have a recent Masters degree in Psychology there was l lot to chew on regarding how teenages think, act & feel today. Make that a number six reason i enjoyed this book..
Two authors made this book a complete disaster. I wouldn’t even call it a book since the story line was missing throughoutl. Ridiculous unbelievable story lines running into each other ad nauseam. Too many characters adding nothing but confusion & people getting murdered to for no real reasons. Main character can’t stop self-.It is going back for sure.destructing over & over (tiring & boring ) book too long.. Narration was over the top loud & brash with a sprinkle of pure nasty. I can’t even figure out how this book ever got published. Even the little girl turned out to be a loud mouthy little brat. The villain? Oh don’t even ask! In my opinion this book could never be rewriten even with a gallon of strong glue. I kid you not. And if I could I would not have even given them a one star rating. It will be going back for sure.
I really enjoyed the memoir of Martin Short. His SNL performances gave my family many fun filled nights & it was interesting to know more about his real life. My 50 year old son goes around imitating him all the time. Thanks much Martin it was a good read
I really enjoyed this book. It certainly kept my interest throughour & was extremely hard to second guess. The narration was great too. If there was a book I really needed when sleep evaded me it was this one. Yes
This book was captivating all the way to the end. In fact it felt like 4 books in one. The subject matter was very interesting & the narrator (Dick Hill) was excellent as usual. All in all I enjoyed it very much & would recommend it to others. It was my kind of book.
Kept me fascinated from beginning to end. I really hate to see these kinds of books end. Narration great too. Highly recommend.
Bith if these writer are very good, but together they SMOKE. It has been a long time when reading a book that i yearned to look up words in the dictionary, which in this book was aplenty. Bne chilling suspense was preasant too & as always subject matter was thoroughly researched. Thanks guys
Fabulous story line. interesting, exciting. With every turn a new plot, yet all connected in the end. A definate thriller

She nailed the part as narrator from beginning to end
The Charity Ball
How Sophie was always one step ahead of everyone.
I loved the language & words never heard in todays society. The men actually had something to say.
She brought the character alive in a very neat way.
Oh yea, I laughed everytime Sophie got the upper hand which was always.
