    "Difficult to turn off"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. As the story went on it became more difficult to turn off and go to work. It was easy to relate to the characters, setting in Boston was done well and the story developed well!

    "Another entertaining llisten"

    After listening to Dark Harbor I was intrigued enough to download this newest book by Hosp. I wasn't disappointed. Although situations and outcomes are somewhat predictable, that fact doesn't detract from the overall performance. I enjoyed the relationship and banter between Finn and Koz. And although the May-December romance that Hosp injected into the story was a bit of a stretch, the May character was funny and believable. Somehow it all worked. Narrator Guidall was excellent and portrayed characters in a way that left little doubt as to who was doing the talking. I'll continue to download books by Hosp as they become available.

    "Entertaining"

    This was my first Hosp book. I liked the detective,Finn and the private eye, "Koz" although the young associate that works for Finn was a little bit unbelievable ... a little too rough around the edges. The story was interesting with some twists and turns, some great love "scenes" and some tense violent sections, but like another reviewer, I guessed the ending too. It didn't really matter though. I still found it hard to stop listening. I even brought my MP3 Player out of my car and into the office one afternoon so I could continue listening. Georg Guidall, the narrator, is one of my favorites and is one of the reasons I decided to listen to this book. He's great. Listen to the Tony Hillerman books for more of his work.

    "interesting mystery"

    This mystery was very interesting. I recommend the story, but it had lots of very bad language.

    "Innocence"

    Wow,I loved it. I was driving home from a presentation I made and was a little mentally exhausted. The last two hours of the book brought me home and I never thought about my mental exhaustion. It was riveting.
    Read it, you'll enjoy it.

    "An author who needs to be heard"

    I read David's first book, "Dark Harbour" some time ago, and when I stumbled upon "Innocence", I was thrilled! He has real talent - the perfect style of writer for good suspense or crime drama. His characters are funny, sarcastic and very, very real. They don't come across as the super-genius detective or the indestructable medical examiner or whatever.. they are human. His writing reminds me a lot of David Baldacci, and that's a HUGE compliment in my opinion.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good suspense story. I haven't bothered to write many reviews lately because I never want to take the time. David Hosp made me want to take the time. I know I loved a book when after it ends, and the familiar "Audible Guy" comes on and says, "Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program", and I answer out loud, "Yes, I did," it's a damn good book. :)

    "Good book, a little "telegraphed" though"

    This is a good story with interesting characters and excellent narration. I would have definitely rated it higher except that the ending plot twist was so obvious and telegraphed, it was almost painful to listen to the main character puzzle over it. And the thing is, i NEVER guess the ending of a book - I don't even try. Not only am i not good at it, i much prefer to just let the story unfold. But this was so obvious, i couldn't help it. Having said all that, i still enjoyed the book as a whole. And i'll definitely look at others by this narrator.

    Note: there was also a plot issue that i'm not sure added up. I wish that AUDIBLE had a dissussion forum, or an email echange where we lsiteners could discuss such things...

    "Excellent Story, but could do without....."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Innocence to be better than the print version?

    Couldn't say, I did not read the print version.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. It was filled with enough mystery that you simply had to keep listening. It was very tough finding a stopping point.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last part in the court room when Finn had the epiphany...I'll leave it at that. :)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sit back and enjoy the ride!


    Any additional comments?

    You might want to rethink Allissa's character. There is nothing wrong with having a tough, no nonsense female character however her excessively foul language is too unrealistic and takes away from her given character. I cringed with disgust every time she spoke.
