the main theme of marital difficulties revolved around 4 main characters. There was too much focus and content on marital issues. The pacing was also slow, IMO. Franny Hardy was in jail for 4 days which made this a somewhat depressing listen.
Colacci is excellent.
franny should have been released on day 2, and the other sub plots could have been better developed, esp the killers in this story.
not sure anything could. its the authors deliberate style, or his story line that did not work for me.
likely, I would not listen to any of the authors books
very good. did great job with various characters
creepy character at the inn in canada
very well developed characters and monologue. while thoughtful, story was not exciting in the least.
The first 7 hours of this story are quite slow. A 2 or 3 paragraph synopsis/summary would have been adequate for that length of the story.
The plot finally picked up around hour 8 and got interesting. Lescroart is a favorite author but I feel he should have abbreviated or added better pacing to the majority of this 12 hour ( audio length) story
Yes. I have listened to all the Hardy stories over the years and some of Lescroarts other work
Collacci is excellent. Hi 'voicing ' is superb.
The end had a good plot twist. Just not quite worth the time to get there.
author needs to make the characters more likeable/interesting. The crime story simply kept on grinding on.
not at all.
scott brick was ok. His inflections and histrionics tend to detract
I like books based in SF.
this was my 1st book by this author. Possible I do not like his style
Difficult to listen of 12 hours of the main character's suffering and obstacles. Author should have altered it or employed some type of pacing or relief.
No, if this is his standard writing style
Scott Brick is usually excellent. I don't think he should have sung nursery rhymes as 1 of the characters. It sounded like a difficult story for him to maintain.
ending was acceptable and somewhat predictable. The plot finally turned and made sense with the visit to the casino.
Should have been a shorter book, as 85% of the story was about the main characters suffering and angst
This is so horribly written and the narrator is just awful. Total waste of time. I could barely make it through the first eight chapters before I had to throw in the towel. Thank goodness it was free but I shouldn't have wasted a credit on this piece of trash.
great story and fascinating characters
Xenia, who was mysterious and impacted the lives of all in this story
convincing depiction of different characters
its in my top 5 , maybe top 3 for the Dismas Hardy/Abe Glitzky series
The court room scenes are terrific. I enjoyed the corrupt police angle. Excellent pacing and it held my interest.
Another great job by Colacci
See my title. I greatly enjoyed this audiobook
Suggest you listen to First Oath , then Second Chair, for continuity.
This audio book was so good, I did not want it to end !
Dismas has evolved and matured in this book. His character is the lead in this legal drama.
I don't think thats possible with a 16 hour audio book. However, the last 2 hours will hold you.
This might be my favorite of the Dismas Hardy/Abe Glitzky series
Glitzky is my favorite character in this audio book, as the embattled former lieutenant in this thrilling story. The author did a great job with the Glitzky character, who has no official authority in this story, but had to take charge in a complex case with corruption and incompetence in the SFPD.
as usual, the ending is thrilling, pulling the multiple themes together. The various settings in San Francisco are well documented and life like, as I lived in or near the city for 20 years .
this audiobook is a must have for your collection.
