"Throughout her many McCone novels, Muller has displayed a knack both for keeping the series fresh and for allowing her character to grow. She accomplishes both goals this time by taking McCone out of the spotlight but giving her fans a chance to root for her to recover. After all these years, Muller's series remains a gold standard for female detective stories." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Top-notch mystery and more from one of the genre's Grand Masters." (Library Journal)
Thanks and respect to the women that served and paid a high price. You are still gorgeous Shi; your scars make you even more beautiful.
As the headline suggests this story is told from the point of view of Sharon McCone who lies in a hospital bed; her mind functioning as usual. Unfortunately she's also paralyzed; unable to move or speak. Yet between her husband and her operatives she's able to solve the crime that put her in the hospital bed. This one is a good solid four star listen for fans of McCone..
I am single, retired and enjoy gardening. I don't have the discipline to sit and read a book. Audio books are such a blessing to me.
This was my first book by this author. I will not try another book. I was so disappointed. The reviews were so good. Has anyone who reviewed read Baldacci, Patterson, Grisham and Susan Brown's Chill Factor?
Oh my goodness, this book was more like reading a Nancy Drew novel. It just was too tame for me.
I want more suspense, more strategy, more romance, more sex.
The characters had no color, no spice, no zing.
I was just so disappointed in how dull the book was.
It was interesting to learn about the Locked-In syndrome. I could have read about it in Wikipedia and saved myself $14.95.
