"Kellerman is at his page-turning best....His serpentine plot and cast of mysterious characters grip the reader to the final page." (Publishers Weekly)
I found the book fair reading, yet perdictable. I felt it was extremly slow at points but rushed thrgh the climax at the end.
Alexander Adams gets better and better. His characterization is masterly, bringing out everything from pathos to humor.
I am a regular consumer of audible, and yet I found this book to be rather confusing due to the sheer numbers of characters. If I had it to do over again I would've kept notes on who is who.
The narration was excellent and I enjoyed the plot, but the dozens of characters were confusing for me. Not a great book to listen to while you're driving.
The narrator made this book interesting. The actual story was really good. The writer's style reminds me of Steven White. A writer I also enjoy very much. I recommend this book and writer.
Out of all of the Alex Delaware books, this is probably my least favorite. It was very unrealistic and I never could grasp that this could possibly be a real murder investigation.
