Plenty of great stories from the Master of Deduction. Stephen Fry brought Holmes and Watson to life. The only problem is that with each chapter being a different story, there is not and should be, a Table of Contents or something to guide listeners back to their favorite adventures. But, for one credit and the mount of content, I will not complain too loudly.

Too Long. Forced. Unreal. I could Probably buy into the story if it was a about only one woman. I don't want to give anything away, but I wish that I would have waited until it came to YouTube for a preview before wasting a credit. I think Rachel Abbott was banking on the success from the previous DCI Tom Banks novels and that her fans would be loyal readers and just follow along. I am upset with the Author and Audible. I almost started watching television again...NOT

She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

I thought this was going to be a thriller but it was a love story. Hardly any action. Danny cared more for his torturer than his own twin brother. The dude was a clueless wus who only had love on his mind, instead of survival

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Katherine Kellgren?

I am finished buying triology novels from this author. They are all have the same story line and are very predictable.

What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

been original

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator screamed most of the book. She portrayed the main character as a childish Bitch

Amos Decker's life changed forever - twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good and left him with an improbable side effect - he can never forget anything.
