The Kills | [Linda Fairstein]

The Kills

Date rape is always difficult to prove, and the case against New York consultant Andrew Tripping is no exception. Tripping and 36-year-old investment banker Paige Vallis had had dinner together three times before the March evening when he invited her to his apartment and attacked her. Or so she says. Manhattan Sex Crimes Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper needs to know all the facts if she is to find justice for Paige Vallis, but Paige seems to have something to hide.

    "Solid story. Terrible recording."
    What did you like best about The Kills? What did you like least?

    Plot is great. I love the characters and the accuracy of the legal details.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike Chapman. His knowledge of military history is fun, and his approach to his work reminds me of many of the detectives with whom I used to work...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She didn't. The recording values did. I could hear her swallow, I could hear her lips smack between words.... It was disgusting and distracting.

    Then, at the end of each chapter, there was a 1.5 - 3 second break of silence, then often you would hear the first 1/2 of a huge inhalation from the narrator. THEN it would break, and you would hear the intro to the next chapter.

    It's like there was no one in charge of the recording at all. I already purchased additional Fairstein books to listen to. If I hadn't, I wouldn't. I would just buy the books themselves and READ them.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.

    "Not my fav."

    Loved the continuation of the characters. Not that crazy about the story on this one. Can't really pinpoint anything just not as good to me as the others.

    "Good book .... HORRIFIC reader"

    If you want to listen to Barbara Rosenblat suck cough drops or hard candy and swallow her saliva, then I would highly recommend this book to anyone ....
    Other than that .... save the credit and buy the paperback.

    Sorry to have wasted the credit on this one .....
