I expected a good story. And to be entertained. What I didn't expect was the depth of character and quick assessment of each individual. The individua..Show More »l personalities were well defined. The story kept my interest and I wasn't convinced I knew who "did" it up to the very end! I will be reading the next one for sure. The narration was above average and I appreciated a story I could let my granddaughter read.
I do not retell the story in my reviews. What I do like to tell you is if this clicks all my boxes. This one does. The participants were all believabl..Show More »e and like able. Even the ones you didn't like you loved in the story. The storyline that unfolded was reasonable for police protocol with a stretch in it that allowed interaction between the main characters. Loved the continuation of established people in #1 and #2. Made the story fuller and more complete. A must read for mystery lovers. I am gathering all of Marta Perry books for future reads. Her stories are wonderfully written. Now regarding the narrator. She is very good and doesn't try overly hard to be male voices. She gives you enough to make different in this book. Her talent is in the telling. I felt in the beginning of the book not enough variance but resolved fairly quickly as more people were introduced. Will definitely listen to again!
