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.
I especially enjoyed the characters and setting for this book. The story is good, with historical relevance and importance, but for me the plot is enjoyable primarily because of the cultural setting and the interactions among the characters in that setting. I look forward to the next book in the series.
Great characters and interesting plot, but moving the story along requires the author to have characters do a few things I'd expect to see in scary horror movies where everyone else knows not to go into the basement. Narrator is good, although a bit grating with some female voices. Never-the-less, I would read the author again and listen to the narrator as well.
This was a well-paced story with an interesting plot and characters. As with other books in the series I found the husband/wife relationship irritating and distracting. That was true here as well--although less so. Verdon seems to always come up with interesting plots and I look forward to reading others in the series.
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.
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.
