    "mystery thriller that totally hooked me"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery thriller. The main character is a private detective dealing with grief over the recent death of his teenage son. The disappearance of a teenaged girl he gives a ride to draws him into mystery and intrigue in a small town in upstate New York. I found myself caring about the characters and mystery equally. This story is very well paced, and I could not stop listening. While I would characterize this as a light summer page-turner, I was totally drawn in. The plot moved at a good pace with a good amount of twists and turns. My only criticism is that the end had one plot turn too many, but I still recommend this novel. It was one of my favorites of the past year.

    Story
    "Suspensefull thriller was engrossing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Tap on the Window to be better than the print version?

    The reader was superb at evoking many different characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening sequence is riveting and sets the stage for everything that follows.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Lost children, lost hope.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending went a bit off the rails and was a bit far-fetched, but I really enjoyed the book nonetheless.

    Story
    "5 Stars for Tap on the Window"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like the book but boy did I change my mind. Very good, a little sad at times but definitely hold on to your seat for a wild ride kind of story.


    What about Mark Zeisler’s performance did you like?

    Mark Zeisler did a very good performance. I don't know if it was the greatest but it certainly was not bad.


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

    Yes. I listened to it all in one day.


    Any additional comments?

    There are so many twists in this book, just when you think you know "who done it" the story goes off in another direction and takes of running somewhere else. The final two chapters took me totally by surprise. The conclusion actually left me feeling kind of melancholy and I normally like a book with an ending on the upside but in a way it does that too. Sounds confusing right? Listen to this one and see if you don't agree. It is worth the $ or credit you spend on it.

    Story
    "Another great listen."
    What made the experience of listening to A Tap on the Window the most enjoyable?

    I really like Linwood's stories. I have listened to them all but one now and really have very much enjoyed them all. This one is no different.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like the father Cal in this one....I also like Auggie the brother in law, kind of one of those bad boy chief of police type.


    What does Mark Zeisler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is great. And the way he does the different people in the story really adds to this being an enjoyable listen.


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

    Yes...several parts when people die.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great listen. Any Linwood fans out there will not be unhappy with this one! Has you going to the very end!

    "A Disappointment"

    Several years ago I read The Accident........and really liked it. A few months ago I reread it and liked it so much that I began to read all of the author's books. I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them until I got to this one. It was slower than the others but I could live with that. But the ending was just totally beyond belief. In most of his books the final solution is at least reasonable..........this one not so!
