Publisher's Summary

In the ruins of an abandoned Soviet military hospital in northern Hungary, two impoverished Roma boys are scavenging for old supplies or weapons they could sell on the black market when they find more than they ever anticipated. The resulting chain of events threatens to blow the lives of a frightening number of people into bits and pieces.

In this feverishly anticipated follow-up to 2011’s critically acclaimed The Boy in the Suitcase, Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg doesn’t realize she is putting life and family on the line when she tries to treat a group of sick Hungarian gypsies who are living illegally in a Copenhagen garage. Nina has unwittingly thrown herself into a deadly nest of the unscrupulous and the desperate, and what is at stake is much more terrifying than anyone had realized.

    "Lots of thrills!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Invisible Murder to be better than the print version?

    Katy Kellgren's reading is AMAZING. She's dramatic without being OVERdramatic, and is easy to listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I LOVED The Boy in the Suitcase, so was eagerly awaiting this new book. It's as good as everyone says - as good as the first, with more Nina Borg character development. Don't want to give away anything, but there are definite surprises along the way.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended to mystery & thriller fans. :)

    Story
    "Clever story, sloppy production, not a fave"

    Kaaberbol and Friis are very adept at weaving together the stories of multiple characters and points of view into a story with good forward momentum. I have to say, though, that I find the principal character in this book and the last, Nina Borg, to be fairly unappealing and not at all an individual I can identify with or root for.

    The audiobook is sorely in need of editing. The narrator will re-read a section more than once, occasionally interjecting "Oh! He's supposed to be Hungarian!" or something like that. I'm also not fond of her transition from reading to overacting in tense plot moments.

    All in all, although the plot is good, I would find it hard to recommend this overall.

    "Narrator Mistakes - Where is the Editor!?!?"
    Any additional comments?

    Katherine Kellgren's voice is easy to listen to and appropriate for this story, but where the heck was the editing and quality control??? There are many examples of a line being repeated, and at 11:50 of chapter 11 we are subjected to hearing the narrator stumble and exclaim with frustration. DISTRACTING!

    Story
    "Production Values Off Here"

    I purchased this because it part of the Soho Crime Press catalog and I usually enjoy international stories. The story was a bit confusing and was not helped by what were obvious production glitches. Once would have been ok but they kept happening, as if the editors forgot to delete mistakes of narrator.

    Story
    "very poorly edited"
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    So, I have to say up front that I really hate the way this woman performs a book. Her voice is grating and she will suddenly increase her volume the moment anything is meant to be getting dramatic. If you are listening with earbuds, it's especially awful! I just cannot listen to any more books read by her.
    This production, though, was worse than usual because of all the editing errors. What the hell?! On many occasions she says something over and over, I suppose trying to get it right, but the wrong ones were never edited out. She even makes an aside or two. Very confusing and so annoying. Maybe if it had been free, I could have overlooked these, but it is unprofessional to put a book so poorly edited out for people to purchase.
    The story...seriously, I got so annoyed with the grating voice and the poor editing that my experience of the book was just ruined. I do think it is a good story line. But I won't be reading any more Nina Borg books because of this poorly produced one.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She detracted SO much, as I stated. I can just never listen to a book read by her, I guess. Hate her voice and way of reading.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    A desire to have my money back.

    "Editing was poor"

    While the narrator was good and easy to listen to, the editing was terrible. Several times the flow of the story was interrupted by repeated lines, and once by many repeated lines accompanied by narrator throat clearing and sounds of frustration. Too bad as the rest was 5 star.

    "Good book spoiled"

    Excellent story but overdramatised to point of shrillness at times. Appalling editing with many repeats throughout narrative.

    Story
    "Unfulfilled"

    The previous reviews on this book warned that it was difficult to listen to and they were correct because it seemed as if it never was edited. The volume level varied tremendously as if no one ever listened to it after it was recorded and then it was just sent off to the publisher. In addition there are numerous times when the narrator repeats entire sentences. However it is a very good story and I listened to the entire recording despite of all these flaws.

    "story is good, but editing was terrible"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the narrator obviously messed up several times, at one point letting out an exasperated sound on her 3rd attempt at a particular sentence. there evidently wasn't anyone assigned to listening to the completed book to make certain that such issues weren't in the finished product.


    Could you see Invisible Murder being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    "Bad editing, but excellent story and performance."

    Unedited recording. Several times the reader repeats a line, and she even says "argh" when having difficulty with a particular line (chapter 11, about 11 minutes in). I've never heard anything like it on a professionally produced audio book. This isn't Librivox! Otherwise, the performance is excellent, as is the story. The perspective on refugees and aid agencies is especially poignant during our current migration crisis.
