    "Pleasantly surprised"

    If have read (listened to) other Jeffery Deaver books, but no others in the "Rhyme and Sachs" series. I got this one on special, so I was happy to "come in late". The author did a good job of providing enough back story to let you know where the main characters were at (mostly scarred by previous thrillers!).
    This story follows the standard rules of a thriller, but the execution is very good - keeping my interest the whole way.
    The narrator was ok, but not great. Maybe because I have recently listened to "On a Pale Horse", which he also narrated, and his distinctive tone did not seem quite right in this different context.
    Overall, if you like this sort of thing, you should like this.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Solid Deaver Info Thriller"

    This is what Jeffery Deaver does well - a pacy, twisty thriller with a lot of pretty geeky info about current issues - in this one it's identity theft and a sociopath pitched against his damaged heroes. Not as smooth as the Bone Collector, but if you like his work, it's a good one.

    "digital crime"

    An interesting voyage into a world of identity theft with a dark and violent plot. Kept me gripped throughout! I really enjoyed this book - a twisting intriguing plot.

    "perfect reading of this book"

    the narrator keeps you listening even when you want a cup of tea or wee, and the speed of his narrating the parts where you are carried along at a pace you can feel the tension and excitement in his voice, it really adds to the pleasure of listening to this audio book and typical Deaver twist and final solving are brilliant. A great listen

    Where does The Broken Window rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It had been a few years since I read the last JD novel in the Rhyme series and I'm glad I've started to listen again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Broken Window?

    Finding out about what potentially the data miners know about us!!!


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He clearly differentiate between the characters and his accents were pretty good.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.

    Story
    "Just bnaint the same without Jeff Harding"

    Really cruel to say it but the narrator makes the book live for me, and although I did get get used to George Guidall, he really doesn't do it for me.
    Usual well thought out Jefferey Deaver/Lincoln Rhyme book but it really took some getting into. Naming all the victims with numbers began to pall (oops sorry)... and if it wasn't for the fact I knew that it really was a good story ( if for no other reason than it was JD with a Lincoln R) I would maybe have given up. It took me until the second part to really get into it.
    I don't think I'll go for any more books narrated by G G... sorry...
    Just goes to show it is the narrator who makes or breaks

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book as it is up to JDs standards. Great reading. Gripping, tense and perfectly crafted.


    What other book might you compare The Broken Window to, and why?

    This book is comparable to any other Deaver novels. It has all the attributes that make a thriller stand out above all others.
