"With tight plotting, an ear for forensic detail, and a dash of romance, this is a truly satisfying sizzler in the tradition of Tess Gerritsen and Tami Hoag." (Publishers Weekly)
Although I am not a great fan of murder mysteries, this one is excellently crafted and many times had me on the edge of my seat. The characters were appealing and fully fleshed out, and the story was intricately plotted but totally believable. Anna Fields did a wonderful job as always with the reading. I can't recommend this too highly.
I learned a lot about the state of Virginia while listening to this book. I was so intrigued that I followed the clues by researching places mentioned on the Internet. I have discussed this book with people more than I have any other books I've listened to. Lisa Gardner made me see a different Virginia than I am use to.
I'm giving this 4 stars due to the above.
I loved this book, the narrator was perfect, the plot was good, the action fast-paced, the characters likable. Great listen! I've already ordered more from this writer/reader team.
Stop, hear this audiobook - I enjoyed this tremendously. The voices were a little cheesy but consistent. Lisa Garnder is a great mystery writer.
The story is weak, the dialog is juvenile, and the plot is threadbare. There were a few characters I liked, but very little depth to any of them. The narrator was AWFUL. All the male voices sounded like constipated women. The accents were pitiful. Do not bother with this book!
I have to agree with others before me, the narrator of this book was awful. Not only was her voice monotone and uninteresting, her attempts at male voices were laughable. As far as the rest of the book goes...I wouldn't know, I couldn't bring myself to sit through more than an hour of it.
lisa gardner is now on my favorite author list, the killing hour was great- very suspenseful, you had to keep listening to see if they'd find the girls- kept your interest throughout and now I can't wait to listen to all she wrote!! not too gruesome & just enough love interest thrown in to make you smile.
And never quite lets you go. The story is tightly woven, the narrator is great. It was especially interesting to be listening to this book during the first heat wave of the summer here in the Washington DC area:) I'll be sure to check out the author's other offerings.
