"The book builds to a climax that hits like a hot bullet blast." (Publishers Weekly)
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!
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.
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!
