Amazing, Thriller, Action
It was a book I did not want to stop.
After readying the other reviews I almost didnt download it. There is nothing I hate more in a book that does not wrap everything up. For the person that made the comment about the couple being attacked by those guys. Please go back they did tell what happened to them and it was resolved. I'm not sure if you missed it or did not realize what happened.
the book does jump timelines quite a bit which was some times a little hard to follow but i would def recommend this book!
Yes. Very good and plausible suspense thriller.
I thought Kate Rudd did a great job narrating all.
Very good 3rd book in the series. I don't see any more and certainly hope that Ragan will continue with these. Although there is quite a bit of jumping from past to present it is done in a coherent way that is easy to follow. I also really liked that at the beginning of each chapter there were quotes from real life well known serial murderers. I thought this added to the credibility of this book.
This book has so many plots going, that she forgets to tie up all the loose ends, leaving part of a kidnapped couple taken by 4 men instead of the main villain, half resolved. I don't understand why she even included their kidnap/torture because it didn't fit in with the rest of the book in anyway. The reader does a good job of keeping your interest, as she stops short of a monotone, but she can do nothing to this pile of sorted plots make sense.
T.R. Ragan keeps getting better and better! Twists and turns galore all the way to the end. Can't wait to read/listen to the next book in the series!
A real page turner ... I couldn't put it down.
Well done... I was not prepared prepared for the ending. With the additional insight provided by the people in the killer's life, I now see the beginning of the story in a whole new light.
I enjoyed her portrayal of Haley. She made me feel the range of emotions that Haley felt, starting with her indifference after being released from prison, then her realization that joy was a possibility in life, ending with her crushing defeat and descent back into hopelessness when she discovers her mother death.
Only the lonely...
The quotes at the beginning of each chapter were well chosen and really creepy ... they site the tone for the book.
Love my family....along with guitars, cameras, and a good book!
I love the Lizzy Gardner books! These are such fun, easy listening books. The subject matter is rather heavy, but the way the book was written, it was a very easy read. The characters in this book, and series, are so fully developed and likeable. The action doesn't stop, and kept me eagerly anticipating what would happen next! Can't wait for the next installment!
I have zipped right through all three Lizzy Gardner books and eagerly the fourth, coming out in July. The author does a good job with the story as well as the character development. I listened to this book in just 2 days; it immediately captured my attention and held it throughout. This book was more on par with the first book, having a single core plot rather than 2 parallel and a bit confusing stories in book 2, where I kept having to remind myself who was in which story thread.
I will warn readers, that while the mystery plot is a stand-alone, the character development is not. Reading books 1 and 2 first help the reader move with the characters as they are affected (or learn to deal with) the things that have happened to them and to their loved ones.
Definitely a good read/listen!
I agree with the other audible reviewer who wrote 'What a mess'..the story was all over the place..where did all the killers come from and what in the world happened to them? The ppl that were tortured/killed. where'd they go? And who the heck were some of the characters, getting dropped of somewhat midway and then poof ..gone again. The only thing I knew for certain was that Lizzy herself would be a victim. I'm wondering if the editor actually read this book or just sent it thru knowing it just might sell because of the Lizzy Gardner aspect. Didn't like it. Wouldn't recommend.
