What the Critics Say

"A strong debut that will have readers dying for more." (Booklist)
"Harris delivers a knuckle-gnawing tale populated with well-developed, albeit edgy characters. A nifty puzzle toward the end will challenge the most jaded mystery buffs." (Publishers Weekly)

    I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.

    "Soap Opera Alert"

    The basic idea for the story was good but most of the time it focuses on the very soap opera like lives of the two main characters. It seemed to take forever for anything plot related to happen. This is not a thirller; its a plodder.

    "Enjoyable"

    Interesting characters and a good reader make up for a weak mystery. Maybe listening at 2, twenty-minute sessions a day during commuting gave me too much time to think about it, but the mystery and the culprit were clear from about 1/3 of the way through.

    "Good Story, Horrible Narrator"

    I love Charlaine Harris, I really enjoy her stories. But oh my god, This narrator is aweful, it was almost painful to listen to. After listening to Johanna Parker narrate Charlaine Harris's Sookie books, I took for granted someone just as fabulous would be reading the Harper stories. Oh my was I wrong. As much as I enjoyed the story, I don't think I'll be listening to the others. Only because of this narrator. What a disappointment.

    "Who picked the narrator and can we fire them too?"

    The narrator is simply dreadful. Not only is the reading stilted but her voice simply doesn't fit the character. She sounds like a fifty year old life long smoker not a 24 year old young woman who damaged and vulnerable every bit as much as she is tough. The gritty jaded thing the narrator does would be more effective if there were any hint of the vulnerability that the is a real part of the character or if she were actually able to convey humor and teasing through vocal intonation rather than through reading the words "he/I teased". The story I enjoyed very much and think I would have enjoyed even more if I weren't cringing at the reading quite so often. I'm definitely going to buy the remaining books... in paperback.

    "Just okay."

    This is not any great but not a bad story either. It was interesting somewhat, but the reader read it like she was reading it. Very short and curt in a lot of places that made this story get a 3 instead of a 4. The twist was good, Maybe someone else got the who dunit quicker than I. I didn't get it before the last 2 chapters.

    "Not worth the $4.95 sale"

    "LOVED!"

    I love this series and cannot wait for more! The storyline is so enjoyable and the twists and turns took me by surprise! Definitely worth your time, read them in order.

    "Predictable"

    Knew how it would end 1/4 into the book. No Sookie Stackhouse, thats for sure.

    "Mehhh"

    Being a massive fan of the "Sookie Stackhouse" series, I figured I would check out Harris' other series... Unfortunately, I was rather disappointed. The tale is plodding and non-engaging. I couldn't "lose" myself in the story, as I could/can with the Southern Vampire series. Slow moving and almost painful in it's lack of interesting twists and turns, Unfortunately I dont recommend this story.

    "snore..."

    as like most of the reviewers, i am a love of the sookie stackhouse novels. i can't even believe this was by the same author! boring plot, boring characters, AWFUL narrator! i agree that she sounds WAY too old to be 24. I'm sure this is played out in the rest of the series (which i will not be reading) but haper and tolliver's relationship gave me the creeps. keep your credits and pass!
