Think I found a new author to obsess over. This is a good (unrealistic, but isn't that why we want fiction?) mystery that is not the cookie cutter bad..Show More » guy vs. good guy story that all wraps up just perfectly in the end. I loved the character development, but it was not overdone so as to detract from the story line. I guessed the end and was right, but I won't hold that against the author! Definitely worth the credit & "read".
I was so excited to read this after reading the first in the series, "Creep", but I was a little disappointed. It seems like this book doesn't have as..Show More » much of the complexity of the first, and the character development (which I really enjoyed in Creep) is a little lacking and bordering on cookie-cutter. I don't regret listening to this book, and if I hadn't already been blown away by the first book in this series, I may have enjoyed it more as a stand alone novel. My expectations were higher. The actual story line of this book seems like a continuation of the last book, which might be fine if done well, but it just feels tedious after a while. I also guessed the ending correctly, and I hate when I get it right! I love an author who can keep me guessing. Though this sounds like a bad review, I want to point out that this book was likely disappointing for me because I had high expectations after the first one. However, it is a decent story, and I'd say worth the credit. The narration was done well, except for one guy with a gruff voice who was made to sound incredibly annoying. But, I understand why the narrator had to do it that way.
