There are too many fundamental errors for me to continue to read. The police closing accounts stretched my credulity too far. I also figure out who did it and why in the first 3 chapters. Yes, I skipped a head to confirm. Sorry. Disappointing.
This story keeps you listening. Hard to put down or should I say sleep. The police are sure they have their man, and do everything to make his life hell. I was not expecting such a good read, the narrator did a great job, you could always tell who was talking by the change in her voice, Hope you enjoy as much as I did. Need to change title to Murders on Potrero Hill
Not sure, because of the fact that it is a mystery story. I like following the story to figure out who did it and now I know what happened. f it were a different genre of book, probably yes.
Sometimes, because I wanted to know if my suspicions were right.
I enjoyed the tone given to the narration. It reminded me of an old fashioned detective movie in black and white. Her portrayal of the characters also makes the book more compelling, it keeps you interested and wanting to know what will happen next.
I thought some legal aspects were not completely believable, but still found the story enjoyable. I admire how Kelley Hazen creates such a distinct personality for each character and adjusts the rhythm and tone of her voice depending on the situation. You can tell she is a pro. I especially enjoyed how she narrated the scene in which the husband finds his wife lying on the bathroom floor.
Predictable ending; yet fun getting there. Parts of the story blog down in minutia. I almost quit after the first third. But, I had to confirm the end. Glad I stayed. Being from The City I'll listen to another another, hoping for crisper narrative.
I hate it when you figure out the entire plot by chapter 5. this one kept me guessing for a long time.
Even though it was HUGELY predicable ... I really enjoyed the story and finished the book fairly quickly. I would recommend if you don't mind that you've figured it out for the most part pretty early in the story.
Narrator cannot do ethnic voices to save her life!! The character is supposed to be Hispanic BUT sounds Asian......says one or two words with a Spanish accent and then she goes into some other race! Awful....awful....AWFUL!!! Couldn't listen to her at first but than really got into the book and couldn't turn it off!
Definitely adding this new to me series to my list of monthly books!
