    "Kept my interest"

    I loved this book from the start and there was plenty to keep my interest peaked. I really enjoyed the characters and how they were woven into the story even though it was disappointing, but necessary I suppose, that some were lost.
    On top of that, I always enjoy Scott Brick narrating - he brings the book to life and makes driving a pleasure.
    This book makes me want to go and discover places!

    "Great book"

    I like it and enjoyed my time while listening to it. I found it by searching on books narrated by Scott Brick. I wouldn't have tried it otherwise...glad I did. It was spooky at times.

    "Loved it"

    I am a HUGE fan of both the narrator, Scott Brick, as well as the authors. Some of the scenes in the book I was waiting almost breathlessly as the story unfolded. Scott makes it seem so real with the emotions he puts into the characters taht I felt like I was there in the scene. Yes yes, it was the way the writer's wrote it that had a lot do with it as well. In any case- perfection. Was sad to see it end. I look forward to the next release of the duo and Scott as a narrator. So far I have all of them from audible.

    "Narration ruined it."

    Okay, sure the story is pretty contrived but it had potential until Scott Brick got ahold of it. His overwrought reading sounds more like soap opera fare than mystery and intrigue.
