"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.
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.
