The story was good but getting to the end was difficult. I appreciated how the revelation of the shooter came about and the justification of eliminating the bad guy. I typically do not mind rough language but the repetition of such was uncomfortable for me. I would not recommend the book to my friends.
From the beginning I just wanted to see what happens next. I had my ears plugged in all day and night. I fell asleep the first night with the book on and tried to wake up and listen to more but could not. The next morning I started the book again and listened to it to it's end. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I know stories will sometimes 'set the scene' and I usually enjoy and appreciate that part of the book. It seems this 'setup' took longer than normal but do not give up on it! It is worth the wait! Excellent wrap up and ending. I had been on the fence with the 'Lincoln Lawyer' series but the second half of this book makes me look forward to more.
The book and story was really bad. I could not even finish the first part. Very disappointed in James Patterson. I am a big fan of his but not this book.
I have listened to them all and in no particular order and enjoyed every one. I know some listeners believe the series should end but not me. Deadlocked is more like a tv series season finale; a cliffhanger leaving you wanting more. I can not wait until next season. Johanna Parker has the perfect accent for Sookie, who grew up in Louisiana. Without her narration, the stories might not be so easy listening.
When I listened to book 2, Private #1 Suspect, of this series I submitted a review and announced my love for the series. After listening to book 3, Private Games, I decided to back track and submit a review for the 1st book, Private, so anyone looking at the reviews could see my devotion from the beginning. The series has just enough of a spin on crime solving that it is unique and refreshing. I also enjoy how advanced technology assists in solving crimes. Mostly, I enjoy the characters.
I enjoyed the book but would be surprised if many men would. It was a typical story line but it was worth listening to.
Just as you think you have the story figured out, Baldacci inserts another twist. I kept thinking the end was near, then something else would happen. I think this book had more twists than any I have read by him. It was great.
I love the series. I cannot wait until the next one. It has outstanding story lines and unique characters. Never a dull moment. Must read!
The first book was good. I thought this one would be as good but it was not.
