    "Very Disappointed"

    I have been a big fan of Lisa Gardner's and was so thrilled to see she had a new book out. Unfortunately, this book was not her best. I didn't care for the reader as he read too mechanically. The book just didn't have the twists, turns, and excitement of her previous books (i.e., The Survivor's Club, The Next Accident). It's an okay listen, but certainly not worthy of 5 stars.

    Fast approaching retirement as a life long oncology nurse. I love family more than anything. I enjoy reading (audio only), movies, travels, paper crafting, photography, gardening and just being alive.

    "Excited to read the whole series..."

    My young adult daughter recommended this series to me. We have the same taste and even though I usually don't read "detective" novels, I really enjoyed this one and plan to listen to them all. I agree with other reviewers that the narrator was not right for this book. She didn't have a lot of range. I couldn't always tell who was "talking" or "thinking" but the thrill of the book helped me overlook that. I'd recommend this book.

    "As always Gardner delivers"

    This was a great read. The characters are well developed and the story very thrilling. I listened to this book until 3am. Couldn't put it down. Narrator was great.

    "Nicely woven"

    This is my second read by Gardner. She certainly knows how to weave many complicated elements together to create suspense and build anticipation to the climax,

    "Great story"

    The story was action packed and suspenseful; I particularly loved the scene in the Judge's hotel where Kat and Mr. "B" meet again. Unfortunately, I did not like the narrator; her voice was uncomfortable to listen to and I was not impressed by the character voices, especially Bobby

    "Totally engrossing story"

    Lisa Gardener's books are wonderfully addictive from beginning to end. The characters stay in my head long after finishing the book. She is one of my favorites.

    "Good story"

    I liked the book, liked the story. Did not like the narrator's voice when doing male voices. Like marlon Brando with a Boston accent.

    "Great performance but drawn out story"

    Like all Lisa Gardner books this story was filled with turns and suspenseful twists. The performance was wonderful so no complains there. It took some time to get use to the readers voice and tone but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed the reading.
    This may be because it was the unabridged version, but many things were repeated multiple times over and over and over again. Certain points in the book I started to zone out. I would recommend an abridged version of available bc the story is still great
