"A twisted, effective psychological thriller." (Booklist)
"Gardner keeps readers spellbound, not just by her plot but by the beautifully realized character of Massachusetts police sniper Bobby Dodge." (Publishers Weekly)
What is great about this book is the fact that it is a unique. Honestly, I didn't even realize how much I enjoyed this book until it was over. Never experienced that before. Brutal content keeps you riveted in a bystander kind of way.
Even though this is a detective D.D. Warren book, I was hoping the series would be more about the shooter. I will continue to read the series, because DD was one of my favorite characters.
For the story line, I feel the scene where Katheryn broke down in front of her Dad. A lot of family history came into play. It visualized the real "hard decisions" a parent has to make regarding grown children and the tragedy that can cause. One of the deepest parts.
However the romantic in my enjoyed Bobby's therapy sessions and hoped him and his Doc would get together. She was on his side from day one.
Almost. A day and a half.
Great intro into the series, although if the series is about DD I am surprised at the small part she played.
My favorite categories are mystery, suspense and thrillers. Psychological thrillers are my favorite.
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.
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,
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
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.
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
