Publisher's Summary

Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm. Thinking they've found a safe haven, they soon realize that they are not alone in the valley....someone is watching.

After one of their party is injured, Maura sets out to find help. But just as she leaves the village, she is attacked and dragged into the woods. A blow falls and the world goes black. Searching for her friend and colleague, police detective Jane Rizzoli's investigation leads her to the abandoned valley and a gruesome discovery. But it turns out Maura's not dead--she's on the run, forced to place her life in the hands of the unlikely savior who has kept her alive until now: a 16-year-old boy.

    "Mixed Feelings"
    Would you try another book from Tess Gerritsen and/or Tanya Eby?

    I would definitely try another Gerritsen book but not if Eby is narrator. I have read a number of Gerritsen's books and many of them are at the edges of medical possibility but I like them. I hadn't realized, until I listened to this book, that Gerritsen was the author of the Rizzoli and Isles stories. I was pleasantly surprised to have an audiobook version of this series until I heard the narrator. Oh my. Not good at all.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Seriously? Is this person made of steel? It seemed a bit far-fetched.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tanya Eby?

    Almost anyone else. Tanya Eby is a poor reader with bad inflection and pacing. I like Carolyn McCormick who narrated the Hunger Games.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Turn it into an episode of the Rizzoli and Isles TV show and I'd watch it.

    "Great Story - BAD reader"

    This was a very good book. Tess Gerritsen writes taut, edge of the seat books. This was one of them. It was somewhat spoiled by the reader, however. She read in somewhat of a monotone and had either a lisp or some speech impediment that was very distracting. I enjoyed the story, just wish I had read it instead of listening to it.

    "HORRIBLE NARRATION!!!"
    What didn???t you like about Tanya Eby???s performance?

    The narration was almost comedic! I will NEVER download another audiobook read by Tonya Eby.

    "Decent story, bad reader"

    I was really drawn into this story when I first started reading it. I got the audio book so I could listen at work. I was hugely annoyed by the choice of reader. She sounded like a robot and the voices of the character were hokey. It kind of took away from the story. I kept having to try and imagine how I would have made it sound in my head instead. As for the story, the ending was kind of a let down. Maybe I just prefer drama and resolution as opposed to anti-climactic surprises.

    "A "page turner!!""

    I commute with my sister to work and we and we usually spend the first half of our commute discussing work, etc., before we listen to our book du jour. Not with this book! It was a fast-paced, edge of your seat story. Wow! Don't miss this one!!

    "Not the correct narrator..."

    I am typically such a fan of Tess' work, that the narration wouldn't matter so much, but this narration is so awful I couldn't enjoy the story. At one point, I considered not finishing it because I find it so disturbing and so inappropriate for this story. Just for the sake of knowing how the story ends, I will continue.

    "Interesting plot/a lot of cussing"

    The book had a great plot but it seems there was a lot of unnecessary usage of vulgar words. The person narrating didn't have a wide variety of tones in her voice for changing between characters maybe would have been better using a male voice for male persons in the story. I think it would have been better for the overview of the story to include the unsavory part of the story which was emphasized with vulgarity.

    "Full of twists and turns"

    An excellent crime drama, full of unpredictable twists and turns, that will hold your interest and keep you wondering not only who did it but what did they do. I listened every chance I had until I finished.
