Quickly, however, secretive houseguests and unexplained visitors dim the pleasures of deep blue water and white sands. Alex can't help wondering why Dr. Moreland really invited him to the island. When he probes, Alex discovers a sour and unwelcome truth. But truth it is, and its discovery comes just in time to save Alex and Robin from the violence that threatens them.

"Kellerman's done it again....Make this one a must-have for all mystery collections." (Booklist)
"Kellerman's ability to weave an intriguing story with tantalizing hints of horror and breathtaking suspense makes this an unforgettable tale that will be popular with the author's fans as well as general fiction listeners." (Library Journal)
Narrators can make or break a good book and what we consider good narration is certainly a matter of choice. I advise you to listen to the sample first before spending your credits. If I took my own advice, I'd still have a credit to spend! While he does a good job switching between characters, I find the overall narration flat and more like listening to a weather report. The story is interesting but it's been pure torture listening to this narrator. I'm halfway through the story and I can't listen to one more word. Nails dragging across a chalk board - you know?
Kellerman is always a good read - and the narrator is just terrific. I could listen to him forever. Kellerman's books always have such interesting characters and I love his girlfriend Robin. He writes with a great sense of humor too!
The first 60% of the book was pointless, could have covered it all in a single, short chapter, finally picked up at the end, but by that time, I didn't care much
Dull as a plumbing convention, it was well read though. If you skip any in the series, this is the one
A rewrite and more engaging story. I have been enjoying the Alex Delaware series and haven't gotten bored. This one was boring and wacky (not in a good way).
This book just didn't cut it for me. The beautiful setting was the only thing worth taking from the book for me. This was off the mark from the other books, but still continuing with the series.
I have read (listened to) many books in this series and I was dissappointed with this one. It's definitely my least favorite of the series.
Tropical quirkly thiller
Dr. Bill - full of surprises
This narrator is not as good as John Rubenstein
Speaker, Coach, Author - in Reno, NV (A GREAT place!) I've been an avid Audible fan for several years. Listen on my iPhone many hours each week.
HUGE fan of the Alex Delaware series. This one focuses on Alex and Robin - on a faraway island and it starts out OK but really became much too unbelievable as it proceeded. Held my interest and I didn't put it on double speed but did think about it. I was just trying to fill in the books from this series I hadn't read/listened to you. So I can check off "The Web" now :)
