I listened to the three available in as many days.
Publishers summary was accurate without giving anything away. I enjoyed the style of writi..Show More »ng and the way he leads you to think the obvious may be true, but never lets you believe. The characters are so well written, flawed a litle cliché but then a cliché is what it is for a reason. Some violence mostly though its just alluded to or very much toned down. Very little in the way of graphic detail, but some.
My favorite element is that even though Jasmine starts out a little bit of the wee damsel in distress, , you can see she has more grit. This is very much in evidence in the second and third books. Knowing your limitations doesn't always mean you're weak.
I really enjoyed the continuing character development and interwoven storylines. Past pres..Show More »ent, different walks of life. A nice change from serial killers r us. A real mystery book that doesnt try to be too deep and brooding and has moments of humor.
Jasmine continues to impress me as a a herione, not some glamorous unrealistic hollywood sterotype and not some uber tough chick.
Great listen unless you have a hard time with accents. I enjoyed wvwry minute.
Can't wait for another book, great story. Character development continues bringing Catherine a little more personality and depth. Warming her up a li..Show More »ttle. A little more violence, but still way down for today's standards.
I don't want to give anything away so I'm not saying much. I like that even though it deals with violence and serious stuff, the story never becomes moody or gloomy. Serious, sometimes a little sad, but also spots of humor, like real life. Not swedish gloom noir.
