I kept waiting for something to happen suffering through the tedious dialogue. Over the top storyline. Only one likable character, the friend. Main characters and entire story were not believable. Narrator was good.

I really enjoyed the book right up until the end. Can’t say more without giving it away but it made the whole story ridiculous to me.

Merry, Sam, and Conor are the perfect family in the perfect place. Merry adores the domestic life: baking, gardening, caring for her infant son. Sam, formerly an academic, is pursuing a new career as a filmmaker. Sometimes they can hardly believe how lucky they are. What perfect new lives they've built. When Merry's childhood friend Frank visits their Swedish paradise, she immediately becomes part of the family. All their lives, Frank and Merry have been more like sisters than best friends. And that's why Frank soon sees the things others might miss.

All characters in this book are despicable. It is depressing with no one to sympathize with. Wish I had not read it.

Gregg Hurwitz continues to surpass himself. Hellbent exceeded my expectations for the next Evan Smoak adventure. Scott Brick’s narration was great as always. Loved Joey. Can’t wait for the next Orphan X book.
