    Story
    "You have to like Peter Diamond"

    I am new to this series, but I liked this book. Peter Diamond was a police officer in the last book, but in the beginning of this one, he is working as a security guard. He found a mute little girl and becomes attached to her. He works tirelessly to find where she belongs. When she is abducted, he follows her trail through New York and Japan and he takes us with him and we are given a chance to figure out who the little girl is and why her family has apparently abandoned her -- and what that has to do with an international pharmaceutical company.

    Story
    "Good but somewhat drawn out"

    Overall, I enjoyed the story, but it could have ended much sooner. The plot Was somewhat inflated and I was ready to have it wrapped up about two-thirds of the way through. Also, Mr. Prebble does an excellent job with British voices, not so much with New Yorkers.

    Story
    "First book was a passable read. This one is not."

    So incredibly unrealistic and yet the author seems to think we'll take this ridiculous character seriously. It was all I could do to finish.

    The story itself is somewhat credible, but the main character is not. He is supposed to be an experienced cop with a reputation for using logic; yet his behavior is never logical and he makes mistakes like a rookie might. Not worth a listen by any standard.
