Too many bodies......too many killers........too many absolutely unbelievable culprits. I had to struggle to get through this one. My first Karen Rose book and it will definitely be my last. Narrator did a good job.
This was one of the best in the Joanna Brady series.......which is my very favorite JA Jance series. There was just one thing that I found hard to accept.........that any 9 1/2 months pregnant (her words!) woman, sheriff or not, would be taking part in shootouts and other obviously extremely dangerous activities. Surely no one person is that indispensable or that invincible. Except for that, I found this to be a great book.......a total page-turner.
Best of the best! The Andy Carpenter series is one of my absolute favorites and the mystery combined with a super sense of humor makes reading these books pure pleasure. Can't imagine anyone but Grover Gardner bringing this super series to life.
I love Tess Gerritsen..............and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am tired of books with unbelievable concocted endings and this one tied everything up for a reasonable conclusion.
I did not like this book! I did not read the Harry Potter books because they were not something I would enjoy. When the author changed genres (and names) I decided to give her a try. I will never buy another one of her books. The characters were totally unlikeable and confusing. I made it as far as the last hour and gave up without ever finding out who committed the crime.......and I couldn't care less! As far as I am concerned, it is a boring, overly long book with no redeeming qualities.
This book was OK. Not nearly as funny as the TV series. I probably would have given it four stars if I hadn't been put off by the very poor narration. He just didn't make it fun. Dull, monotone and entirely too much "said Jack", "said Mary".
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it in a very short time. I was all ready to give it five stars until I got to the last chapter. Even though they say it is based on a true story, I found the premise really difficult to accept. It might have been a little easier if the author had developed more background for the ending and hadn't finished the book so abruptly.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this book.
I pre-ordered this book because I have enjoyed Joseph Finder's books in the past. This one was a disappointment. The characters were shallow and the story totally unbelievable. It was very slow moving and not a book that I would ever recommend.
Took me a little while to get into this book but enjoyed it after I did. Hard to follow until you pick up on the swing between the two time frames. The reader's accent put me off at first because it was different from the British accents I am used to hearing. Does deserve the four stars!
I was very disappointed in this book. First half was OK. Ending was terrible.........unbelievable characters and actions. Narrator was OK for some parts but definitely not OK for others. French accent didn't bother me as much as the Philadelphia accent, which was demeaning. I'm from Philadelphia and I don't speak that way.
Several years ago I read The Accident........and really liked it. A few months ago I reread it and liked it so much that I began to read all of the author's books. I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them until I got to this one. It was slower than the others but I could live with that. But the ending was just totally beyond belief. In most of his books the final solution is at least reasonable..........this one not so!
