The story starts fine and sets the stage for a good legal thriller, but then the book rambles on and on with unoriginal characters, and with a very i..Show More »mplausible storyline. The story slows down to a crawl at times that I nearly gave up! The author could have cut down on the length of the story and also on so much extended dialogue which would have given the story much more zip. Maybe next time, although I'm not sure I'd go for another book of his.
An interesting legal thriller this time dealing with the military, soldiers and their families. As with the other books in the series, they are pu..Show More »zzles, all the pieces are there you just have to put them together correctly. Very engaging…
Wow I can't believe this book has merited such high ratings. I had to stop listening to "Murder One" about an hour into it because I found the narrati..Show More »on so annoying. Then I checked it out from the library and found it so suspenseful on the written page that I didn't want to put it down so I listened to it parts of it on my commute to work. My criticism of the audiobook is the narrator sounds ridiculous when he does female voices – like a man pretending to be a woman in a comedy sketch. Worse than that is all the black characters sound fresh from the plantation – even a highly educated man raised in a wealthy family in northern California.
The story however definitely held my interest so I would recommend reading rather than listening to this thriller.
