I would change Maggie however this was published in 97' and Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors. Maggie made no sense to me. She is a mousy virgin yet a marriage counselor who had never been in a serious relationship. Really? A very naive and whiny character, Maggie just annoyed me. The characters were not very complex and I'm glad this book was written under Alicia Scott, Maggie is nothing like DD Warren and the other complex characters in her other series.
I would recommend this one to a teenager who has limited experiences, they would probably find Maggie more believable.
Never and I think Kate Rudd's narration added to the annoying qualities of Maggie and she reads men like they are cave men. errr.
As much as I complained throughout this review, I still managed to listen to the whole book in 24 hours so it couldn't have been that bad. As I mentioned I was entertained, the book was not very complex which gave me the ability to multi-task while listening. If it was a DD Warren book or any other Lisa Gardner book, I would have been more captivated and would have stopped the multi-tasking to listen closely.
Can't wait for Fear Nothing!
I gave read many serial killer stories and it starts getting repetitive but this book was refreshing. This one follows a young criminal lawyer instead of a police detective. It is by far one of the best mystery novels I've read. Also I have never listened to Jim McCance before but he was great, at times he sounded like Buffalo Bill from "Silence of the Lambs" and other times he sounded like my favorite narrator, Scott Brick. If you like Scott Brick you should like Jim McCance.
I enjoyed listening to the evolution of Teddy who was somewhat naive and desperate for a mentor.
The underwater scene, I'll leave it at that. ;)
Once I got into it I couldn't put it down.
I stumbled on this series by accident. One of the best I've read in awhile.
Big Time!!!! It kept me guessing the whole time.
She was fantastic!
Some secrets are best left unsaid.
Anyone that likes this narrator will like it. I didn't like the narrator. I'm two hours into the story and I've stopped it twice to read other books.
He should try to keep the same narrator throughout the series. For a man to read as a woman he has to be careful to not make the girl sound too girly. Jessica is a tough woman and I don't like how he reads her. Also, two hours in the Jessica still hasn't been brought into the crime investigation in New Orleans, its just dragging! The other issue which is no fault of this book is book 3 is not available on audible therefore I now have a gap in the storyline.
I will and I will try to finish this book. I would really like book 3 on audible.
cut the narrator
One of my new favorites.
Big time and it kept me guessing. The killer is just so creepy.
He was great across the board
I really liked this book. Lately the crime novels I've been reading are more romance than thriller. This one is gritty and the woman doesn't take any s**t.
It was suspenseful and I enjoyed all the forensic talk. The ending was deeply disturbing and I loved listening to every second of it.
He was fantastic! I liked his voice for Jessica. She sounds as you would expect. Someone very intelligent and just wants to cut through the nonsense.
I pretty much did.
I love the narrators and the story line was ridiculous yet interesting. Konrath books are always suspenseful with peppered in comic relief. He always manages to keep the characters fresh by adding more substance to situation.
Harry is always my favorite and the cat.
They are some of the best narrators out there!
Can a day get any worse?
A great series! Highly recommended!
I would listen to it again, I really enjoyed the characters and how the relationships continue to grow.
Mickey and his posse. I love how vulnerable ema is. The bad Lady is also quite interesting. I really hope Coben makes a third book, there is still so much to know.
He was great!
I laughed and I cried, its well written!
This one sat in my library for awhile but once I started I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed this story.
Mickey of course but also Emma
Mickey and Spoon.
I don't know, but it would make a great film, it's sort of like "Stand by Me" by Stephen King.
Intense, Endearing, Funny
The letter Jack uncovers, I wont say more..don't want to spoil anything for the listener.
Her wedding dance and her with Harry.
Yes and I pretty much do!
The book series continues to get better and better! I love the characters, the narration, and the unique story lines. I highly recommend this series!!.
All of Konrath's books are amazing on audio. Dick Hill and Susie Breck are amazing narrators. Its hard not to fall in love with the characters, well the good guys anyways!
The cat was hilarious!!!! Harry continues to be ridiculously funny! Jack dating was also funny
Harry is the best although I love them all!
The taglines are already great. And this series would make a hilarious tv series!
I highly recommend this series!
