Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
A first I wasn't sure I was interested in a story with ASAC Frazer but once it started I was hooked. Frazer wore his mask well but Izzy was able to get behind it and see the real man. ASAC Frazer is a sexy little beast...lol. He had control in everything he did even when things were out of his control.
I loved Izzy. She was a strong character but I was a bit disappointed that we didn't see that strength when it came to protecting herself. We were told she was capable, we felt she was capable but when it came down to it she needed a man's help.
Kit was an annoying little shit but i'll chalk that up to her being a 17yr old who thinks she knows everything and is owed anything she wants.
Overall I enjoyed the story and the writing. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was listening. This was a great installment in the series. I started the series at book 2 with each passing book i'm more and more determined to swing back to book 1. The tidbits dropped about Parker and Rooney make me believe that their story was an explosive start to a great series.
Eric Dove is an amazing narrator and I actively search out his work in the romance genre.
Yes I would recommend this audio. From the excellent writing to the marvellous narration, this romantic suspense will keep you enthralled.
This the fourth book in Toni Anderson's Cold Justice Series, and they keep getting better.
His wonderful narration brings to life Toni Anderson's characters. His voice carries you along at an exciting pace.
The story was so suspenseful and action packed that I found myself shouting at the characters and second guessing who was the killer
I really enjoyed the emotional build up to the romantic interaction between the hero Lincoln and the heroine Izzy. Once again Toni Anderson adds another suspenseful twist to a murderously action packed story.
Great story, romance and mystery. Surprised by the "who dunnit" which always makes for a great story. Now planning to listen to another audio from author.
Suspenseful, exciting, chilling
I loved the complexity of the plot. I changed my mind two or three times about who the murderer was and I still got it wrong.
The character development was also very strong and this is true for the side characters as well. There was an emotional depth to this thriller which I find is often missing from the mass produced romantic suspense titles saturating the market.
I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.
I haven't listened to any of Eric G. Dove's other performances but he did an amazing job with this one and if I saw his name on another title in the genres of interest to me then it would help persuade me to buy it.
I have to say that I found the first few chapters quite sad and emotional. Rape is a sensitive topic to write about and when it involves the murder of a young girl you can't help but feel shocked and saddened. The friends' and parents' grief was almost tangible in these opening chapters.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Yes there is just something about having the story read to you that just makes it more real to me
It's intriguing and fast paced. It's also action packed and the story flows well and keep the listener engaged
Love his voice and how he articulates the words he reads making for an easy listening experience
I would have loved to listen in one sitting, it's one of the stories that keeps you on your toes and guessing
I've found this series to be fun fast paced and seriously wnterywing. The characters are engaging and kept me wanting to discover what really happened and who the players were. Definitely a great read full of suspense.
I haven't read the print version, but the audio version is excellent!
Isadora Campbell. I liked the love she shows for her family and friends. She gave up so much for them. She cares so much for everyone in her life, and the compassion she shows is phenomenal.
I truly loved the ending! It really got my heart racing as everything came together.
Be ready to hold on by the seat of your pants! You won't want to miss a second of the action ahead!
The narrator did an excellent job. The voices were wonderful and he made me feel as if I was part of the action. I can't wait to listen to the next audio book in the series!
This author is fantastic and her writing is sensational. You can't go wrong with her books!
I loved this book. Cold Fear is book 4 in the Cold Justice Series. So far, I have only read books 1 and 4 - I believe they are stand alone reads. This story is an exciting Suspense thriller about serial killers and little romance on the side. It is well written and really gave me lots to think about in real life.
Imagine a serial killer getting away with murder literally for decades. ASAC (FBI) agent Lincoln Frasier it at it again. Bodies are women are turning up dead and the M.O. is in prison and has been for years! This book is packed with excitement, danger, suspense and chills.
The author, Toni Anderson did a great job on this book. I loved the plot. I thought I knew who the real killer was all along and it blew my mind to see I was wrong! I didn't see that coming. The narrator, Eric G Dove delivered a perfect story to us complete with multiple voices, emotions and accents. His speech is smooth and easy on the ears and very believable. Great job!
Ms. Anderson did a remarkable job in guiding the reader to meet and get to know the complex characters as the story progressed.
Izzy because she was so strong and yet so vulnerable throughout the story.
Yes and this one is equally as good as any story that I have had the pleasure to listen to. He does a great job in making each character distinctive.
I will confess that I cringed at times when inside the mind of the serial killer.
The suspense, narration, keeping me guessing and on the edge
I have always been interested in serial killers for so many reason. This story brought it more to life for me.
by keeping you guessing to who the killer is, keeping you on the edge and not wanting to put the book down. This was a highly entertaining listen that makes you heart beat faster.
Nothing I felt he does an outstanding job pulling the reader in and holding their attention why he entertains them.
This author has always been able to pull me in, keep me guessing as she entertaining me to no end. Between the author and narrator this was a hard to put down I wanted to know how it ended. Serial killers have always got my attention this is the next best thing to a true read. Trying to understand the who and why is mind blowing. Ms. Anderson pulls you in with her very talented mind as the narrator hooks you with his smooth voice painting a story of mystery and death leaving you second guessing who the killer or killers are. Just when you think you have it worked out and you say that is just to easy no way...the author talks you into believing what she has setup for you only to find your first thought was true. It was to easy and you might need to do a little more looking. I can honestly say I never saw that coming, would have never guessed it.
The narrator as always did a wonderful outstanding job. There are not any breaks that you can tell just a smooth rich voice plotting the story the author wrote. He hits all the correct tones pulling you in making you believe what is going on. He has wonderful character voice, you have no trouble knowing who and what sex they are. There are no background noises just a smooth reach narration that will keeping you hanging on not wanting to put this book down. I have loved Eric G. Dove from the first book I have ever listened to that he narrated. I always look forward to his narration. He has narrated a few of Ms. Anderson books which I have loved. I always get excited when I see his name and know I am going to totally love the book.
Frazer has always been one of my favorite characters throughout this series. He is strong, alpha, will a wonderful attitude. He is a tough cop who doesn't give up easy and always gets his person. It was nice to see him get his own story. He does however need to deal with his past as the author brings more of it to life in this read you come to understanding him better. Not only does he have his handful with Izzy along with the killer and some teens that are working through their own issues. This is one cop that toes the line all but one time. Even years later he is still dealing with this which will get in his way with Izzy and her secret. Ones past has a way of coming back to bite you on your butt as he will find out when all of Izzy past comes back to haunt her. He is going to have to decide if love can out weather the fall out when the past comes knocking.
Izzy has been haunted by her past and it is about to come back in a big way. She walked away years ago but with her mother dying she must come home to help take care of her sister. Teens can be so trying on their best days but her sister is hell-bent on making bad decision. Getting even with the popular girls will be her down fall in many ways the bigs is losing her best friend. As Izzy does her best to help her sister through some very trying times she must also face her past while trying to find out who the killer is and why they have come back after all these years. Danger is all around is there no stopping this killer? What about her new founded relationship with Frazer will he still want her when he finds out her secret?
I was drawn to Ms. Anderson's book from the very first book. She deliveries a bang from the first page that pulls you in and holds you throughout the read. Her stories are very believable with all that is going on in the world it isn't hard to believe this could or has really happened. This series revolves around states and place I know well which is an added bonus for me. This is one author that has done her research well knowing the places this series takes place it is easy for me to know she given great thought to the plot and the place she has built it around. She always keeps you guessing as to who the killer is. You must look deep and give much thought before you can pick him out. I have to say I am always surprised when he is revealed never guessing to who it is. Ms. Anderson is another of my go to authors when I want thrills, adventure and excitement she never lets me down. The sex is hot as two people find their way and could be torn apart when things come out. There are some very heated scenes that will give you hot flashes. She has picked a narrator that goes well with this series. Between the two they make the perfect match to bring you all you come to expect. This book was a little more intents and graphic than most of her stories. It will shock you and keep you turning the pages. I am so looking forward to the next book I can hardly wait. I know it will be as thrilling and exciting as this one has been. If you haven't read anything by this author I highly recommend you do. All of her books have been outstanding but this series has been the best so far. Read this one as a standalone but if you want the full impact of the characters you do not want to miss one book in this series.
I liked the storyline, although it was murderously gross. And I’d just as soon we didn’t get to know Jesse and Helena before Helena was murdered. I mean, she was described as sweet and kind and loving, so it kind of stunk that you saw that before she was killed, then heard about it from everyone else after she died. I’d rather think about her being a total stranger who’d been killed.
And, I absolutely did not like Kit. That’s one horrible thing about teenagers being in books, authors think they have to make them into complete jerks. They do that in historicals, too. There is nothing worse than a teen in any kind of book, because you know you’re going to start out hating them and even if they do turn around it’s going to be too late to change your mind.
I did like Frazer, and have been anxiously waiting his book. I like Izzy, too. I thought, since she was a Captain in the Army and had been to Afghanistan that she’d show more “umph” but she didn’t. She may have well just been a doctor since she didn’t show any kick-ass attitude. BUT that was OK because you couldn’t help be like her.
There was some murder, mayhem, conspiracy, a lot of falling in love, some real sexual tension and some great sex. AND there was next to no angst, which made the book extra good, considering it was 428 pages.
I do hope Lucas Randall’s story is next.
As to the narration: Eric Dove was just wonderful. He gets better and better with the women's voices and the heroes alway sound so sexy.
