If you like a supernatural thriller, without too much blood and guts, this is a great listen. I loved the characters, the story was great and the narrator was excellent.

Good story, lots of suspects to choose from and I really liked the PI. Very entertaining book and an excellent narrator.

I’m glad I didn’t quit this book even though the strange upspeak style of narration annoyed me every step of the way. Since both the narrators did it, I can only assume they were directed.
Storyline kept me interested and the main characters had me rooting for them all the way. And there’s a dog. I’m a sucker for animals pervading the story, yay!

Well, I’ve rated this pretty highly because it kept me listening and trying to figure out what was going to happen. On the other hand, there were a few plot points I saw a mile away because it’s been done before (especially on TV). I have to say, this story was pretty horrific. I probably won’t choose another Karin Slaughter book for a long time, maybe not ever because of that.

I don’t know how he does it, each Joe Pickett is better than the last. Sad I’ll have to wait another year for the next one. I usually “hoard” them until closer to the next release, but just needed something to sink my audio teeth into(pun intended). Thank you, CJ Box for never disappointing!

The reader is pretty good. I thought the story was good. There were some small things that annoyed me about the characters. In particular I would’ve liked to smack the nephew upside the head, then smack his mom for enabling his behavior. Otherwise, it kept me listening to see what happened.

Louise Penny is awesome

If you haven’t read any of her series, please do start with book 1, Still Life. I’m sure they could stand alone, but there is a lot of back story and I have loved them all.
This one was full of twists that kept me guessing, although I did suspect one particular twist, knowing Gamache’s character. It didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the book in any way.
This is a police procedural, with each book advancing the character development of the main series.

I guess I’m just going to have to give up on Dean Koontz. He’s really strayed a long way from his Odd Thomas series and others like it. Too much depravity and no value added for me. Was so not worth even $1.69 I paid.

...but a great set of stories with Fred and Friends. This is more of a cozy type of paranormal book, which I loved.
