    "The River Killings"

    I really enjoyed this book on tape. This is the first time I've reviewed a book. It was extremely interesting & I couldn't stop listening. The pace was fast & the end unexpected. When I looked for more titles by this author I was disappointed to see there was only one more. I was hoping that there would be at least ten more. I will be watching for more books from this talented author.It's been a long time since I've listened to a book that I couldn't stop listening to.

    "EXTREMELY annoying....."

    It was all I could do to get through this book. The characters are so immature and unsympathetic I found myself turning it off every few minutes because I wanted to just yell at them. Any child being raised in the Hayes / Cummings world should be prepared for years of therapy; just not from Zoe Hayes!
