    "Great Book! Did not want to put it down"
    If you could sum up A Dark Mind in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing, Thriller, Action


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was a book I did not want to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Good Thriller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Very good and plausible suspense thriller.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    I thought Kate Rudd did a great job narrating all.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "What a Mess!"

    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.

    "I love Lizzie!!!"

    I am in Love with this series. The characters are realistic, relatable, and complex. The plots are all unpredictable and the writer has a very very vivid imagination. Hannibal Lecture is a ballerina compared to the monsters lurking here!!

    "Only Lizzy can pierce a mind this dark"

    Someone is preying on couples, especially happily married ones, but why? Dubbed the Lovebird Killer, he has the city of Sacramento in fear. Lizzy know she must go after him, but she is still recovering from her own brush with death at the hands of a serial killer. What Lizzy doesn't know is the Lovebird killer is watching her and has evil plans for the troublesome PI.

    Love her stories and all the other little stories between the characters. It always keeps me to where I don't want to stop listening.

    "couldn't put it down"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Dark Mind to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dark Mind?

    This one was pretty dark. Could have done without some of the details.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    I would say Hailey, I suppose.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not so much.


    Any additional comments?

    Kate Rudd's narration is improving. Not quite as robotic.

    "too many characters..."

    Too many characters stuggle to finish. Half way through I lost track of who was who. Why did the serial killer need three names? Well really 4 or 5? Then the extra story about the adoption could have been left out. Way too much going on in this book. I enjoy her novels so I will keep going in the series. But good grief the last time I took notes while reading I was in college studying for finals. Reading should be entertaining not work.
