"A rare find: a puzzle so finely calibrated that each new disclosure brings revelation and deepening mystery at the same time." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Great series, terrible new narrator"

    I loved this series. But this book is narrated by a new person. The narrator is terrible. I won't be able to listen to this book. She has completely changed the personality of Tess, the main character, in her poor narrating. It is really too bad because the earlier narrator was wonderful.

    "Mixed bag"

    I liked the character, setting, and premise, but towards the end, it felt as if the author got fed up and tied up all the loose ends and punished the wicked, toot sweet. Perhaps another book of Lippman's would be a better option.
