This was a great listen for this genre. The characters were well-developed and the story was surprising at times. Connelly is a solid writer and Dick Hill did a great job bringing the characters to life.

LOVED this book. I've listened to dozens of audio books and this one (and Larsson's previous one) are some of the best out there. The narrator is flawless and the story is intricate without being tedious. I can't recommend it enough.

Great narration as always from Guidall, but this book wasn't as good as some of Cook's other books. I thought the biblical details were distracting and not particularly interesting (and I majored in Religion!). It seemed a little Dan Brown-ish, but not in a good way. My attention definitely waned a bit in the middle of this one, though the story picked up when Cook brought the two stories together, about 3/4 of the way through. ,
