"This fast-paced thriller features a lot of detailed forensics with a rip-roaring ending." (Publishers Weekly)
"Lisa Black wows us with another tense and uputdownable thriller. She is, quite simply, one of the best storytellers around." (Tess Gerritsen)
Speaker, Coach, Author - in Reno, NV (A GREAT place!) I've been an avid Audible fan for several years. Listen on my iPhone many hours each week.
The story is OK and held my interest but wasn't edge of your seat by any means. And the narrator... For at least the first half, she sounded as if she had just picked up the book and started recording. I am used to such high quality narrators (usually) through Audible and Ms. Cuervo was not very good. She seemed to get more in the groove with the characters by the second half and alter her voice and speed, etc. a bit, so it was better. I'll get the next book in the series but not sure if I'll get it as an Audible book. It would be one you could listen to on double time, though.
The author creates a perfect mix of interesting detail and taut mystery. I live in Cleveland and appreciate the nuance with which she portrays the city I've grown to love. Having exhausted the lists of Lee Child, Harlan Coben, and J.R. Robb, I needed something new. I found it with Lisa Black. I've now read or listened to all of Lisa Black's books that I can get. Like the city of Cleveland, she's a hidden gem of an author.
I enjoyed this new (for me) writer and I thought her mystery interesting. Having grown up in Ohio, I liked this was set in Cleveland. Hope to see more of Lisa Black's work on audible

This is more than murder mystery; the interesting characters and well written storyline made me want to listen to the next book too.
