"The book builds to a climax that hits like a hot bullet blast." (Publishers Weekly)
I have been a consistent, possibly obsessed audiobook listener since 2003. My listening ranges from suspenseful mysteries to science and technology, but I return again and again to the unexpected depth and breadth of books which fall into the "Mysteries and Thrillers" category.
A satisfying book with an appealing small town flavor. I stayed interested even though the main character is a little weak and irritatingly "nice." She is balanced, however, by stronger supporting characters.
I enjoy some of her earlier books better, but this book was worth reading (listening to). My only real objection is with the reader- she repeatedly mispronounced the town of Beaufort, NC. In N.C., it is pronounced "Bo-fort". Seems as if the reader would at least attempt to ascertain the correct pronunciations. Characters, as usual, were pretty well-developed. I miss "Judge Deborah", though!
Really enjoyed this audible book! Margaret Maron never disappoints!! Easy mystery - I listened to this while packing to move to the area where the story takes place. Would enjoy meeting Mrs Maron some time and tell her of my enjoyment of her books Sigmun to this one - all good!
Excellent book! I love Margaret Maron's books! In each of her books one feels like the characters are folks you know. I hope there will be a follow up to this book!
