    "OK, but not great!"

    I always enjoy Jeffery Deaver’s books and this one was no exception. It was definitely not one of his best books, but was a good read. The book continued with unexpected twists and turns throughout it until the very end. I thought it was going to end long before it did, but Deaver would then twist the plot and add another turn to the story. It did keep my attention, but I felt it was a little under par with his previous books.

    Story
    "A Good Read/Listen"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. In one scene Kathryn is approaching an accident. A car is on fire and she is looking for a friend. Now even if you are looking for a particular person, if you approaching a car which is on fire and you take the time to leave a voice mail; yea, she is in a 911 situation and she leaves a voicemail, why don't you call 911? If you tell your friend's husband that his wife could be in trouble... why don't you tell him to call 911.
    I was screamg at Kathryn to get real.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. From the begining you know that it is a stalker fan. As you read/listen you are just waiting to see the mistake the fan makes. What you thought was a fan with muderous issues becomes a political adgenda and jealousy. It was only because there was still a lot of time left that I knew that there was more to come.


    Which character ??? as performed by Marin Ireland ??? was your favorite?

    Kayleigh Towne


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, especially if they keep the plot twist.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 3rd book in a series. Of course I then wanted to buy the other books. I was surprise that I owned the second book. I still purchase book one and will revist the second one.

    You have heard a term used in poker called a "tell" when Kathryn Dance say her "A to B to Z" take notice, she has just found a clue.

    Retired professor. Vision-impaired, so I listen to a fair number of audiobooks. Prefer mysteries, thrillers, history.

    "Deaver still has it"
    Would you listen to XO again? Why?

    I will have to wait a while before listening to this book again -- but my memory has gotten so bad that it won't be too long before I do. I need for the plot twists to face a bit in my memory so that I can recapture some of the surprises. Jeffrey Deaver has written many books that featured unexpected plot twists, which is what makes reading his work always fun for me. This book was no exception.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of XO?

    I don't want to give the plot away, so I will just say that the tour of the Bobby's house, and the ultimate recovery of what was taken from there are hard for me to forget.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It is hard to answer that. I see the story as a flow rather than discrete scenes.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. You want to stop and think about what is going on from time to time to keep the threads in order.


    Any additional comments?

    I have grown to like the Kathryn Dance character, and this book only deepens the richness of detail that Deaver has built up for her persona. A great book for Deaver fans!
