I didn't fully appreciate how much I have come to equate David Collaci with Brunetti until listening to the new narrator for this addition to the series. It just didn't seem "right." The story is interesting, includes some fun twists, and the various musings are as enjoyable as ever.
I found this book to be about 60% mystery and 40% romance novel. The 60% kept me interested to the end, but the 40% likely means I’ll not read the next book in the series. The protagonist has an interesting back story and has likable skills. Unfortunately, she also has an inexplicable preference for persons with classic abuser traits and an irritating lack of curiosity at the most inopportune times.
A very entertaining story with enjoyable characters. A touch of mystery that I hadn't expected but provided a welcome addition.
This fourth book in the Nathan McBride series has a strong plot and enjoyable characters, but to me not as suspenseful as the earlier ones. One of my favorite things about Peterson's series is that he knows when to end the book--and does so rather well.
It's great to have Colacci back and also to have one of the more enjoyable plots from among the last several books in the series.
I greatly enjoyed "You're Next" by Hurwitz but found this story and the protagonist to be disappointing. A bit too much like watching a horror movie where the teenagers keep heading to the dark basement. Unwise, if not stupid, decision-making distracted from some interesting plot twists -- but I understand that the latter required some of the former.
Tagged a fantasy—and rightfully so, but for those believing they don’t like fantasy I encourage you to suspend a modicum of belief in order to enjoy a wonderful adventure that informs us about culture, religion, philosophy, politics, and technology.
Another interesting Will Trent story. Included too much "romance novel" for my taste, but the overall plot was good and the narration was well done.
A very timely book that I rather wish had been a read than a listen. Narrators are quite good, but this is a book I think would be more enjoyable (and easier to track) if page-flipping and back-tracking were possible. Is this what Edward Snowden is reading in Moscow?
As anticipated, this was an enjoyable and educational romp through art and architecture -- armchair travel among the best. What was unexpected was for it to be one of the most thought-provoking books I've come across in a long time.
