©2009 John Lutz; (P)2009 Random House
Retired former magazine editor who is working harder than ever as Mr. Dad to his 13-year-old daughter.
Lutz did an exemplary job of weaving a story with multiple plots into a cohesive package. Readers/listeners are given enough clues along the way to piece together what is happening, although the final twist strained credibility. I am a fan of Scott Brick but felt the highs and lows of his narration in this book presented somewhat of a challenge. I generally listen to audio books in the car and his "whisper" deliveries caused scores of "rewinds" for me. Not every reader will enjoy the comic relief provided by Pearl and her mole, but I think it worked. The four stars I gave this book were closer to three than to five but I would recommend the listen to those who enjoy this genre.
Urge to Kill is just more great suspenseful writing by Mr. Lutz. I really enjoy his books and this is just as good as Night Kills and In For The Kill. I love going to bed and putting on a Lutz book on my Ipod. He's the best.
Another Frank Quinn book
I like Scott Brick. It was the book. Too many storylines going on.
286 minutes into the book I was still confused on the different characters. The only characters after that 4+ hours that I could distinguish were Quinn, Federman, and Pearl. Have loved all the Frank Quinn books. This one, couldn't make heads or tails of it.
