It starts off with a thinly veiled parody of scientology, but you will never anticipate the plot twists Lehane has in store for you. Lehane is a gifted writer who just happens to write mystery/thrillers. I judge my audible purchases by the ones that force me to take detours from my driving destination in order to listen a bit more. Or force me to stay on the treadmill a few minutes longer. This one did that. Repeatedly. Davis does an excellent job with the narration. Highly recommended.
This book will appeal to three sorts of people: 1. People who are married; 2. People who like good writing; 3. People who like twisting plots they don't see coming.
Know what this book did to me? It had me thinking about it when I was doing other things. And not just the old looking for holes in the mystery.
Lots of folks love this book but don't like the ending. I actually think the ending is incredibly strong, perfect for the sort of wild ride the book takes you on.
And there's just a whiff of suggestion we might hear from these characters again.
Further, I read Flynn's first two books and did this one on audio. I think the audio experience here is superior to reading the book, and I'd rarely say that. The male and female narrators do a nice job. Their voices add to the story.
