Dying Light audiobook cover art

Disturbing descriptions of very gritty story

I did finish this Book but found I needed to fast forward through almost all of the disgusting descriptions of body decay and nasty ally ways filled with dead rats and used condoms. Not to mention the descriptions of some of the character"s physical attributes. Would I read it again NO. But I did want to see how it ended to see if I knew who most of the villains were and I did.
So good story but way to gritty for me to just enjoy. Not for the sensitive stomach turning type of reader which I seem to be.
It does not give a kind look at Scotland's police or the city of Aberdeen. So be warned read at your own risk.

Narcissist meets sociopath oh wait which one is which. I could not put up with the wife for almost half of the book so back it went. If you can suspend your disbelief for the whole book than you will like this book. If you want to read about believable people and how they cope this book is not for you. Arlene a Audible reader .

I started liking the idea of the story and the first chapters were good but somewhere along the way I found that I disliked both of the females that the story was about. I just could not get into it and skimmed quite a bit. The author wrote two long final chapters to neatly tie up a very unlikely story. Just my opinion and I am sure others will find things to like and enjoy in this book. I was going to return the book but I did read the end so I just filed it away. I will continue to read Karin Slaughter hoping the next book will be my cup of tea. from Arlene one person's view.

This was a fun listen with an entertaining storyline. There were two main characters trying to figure out 2 passed cases.
Lots of plot twists and police action and too much information about the 911 call-in system. Also, a dog is part of the plot and this time it ended well for the pet. I hate when authors make you care about a pet in the story and something bad happens to the poor thing. Just to underline that a psychopath is in the story. Worth a credit YES and good Narration by Kirsten Potter. The story was over 13 hours so it kept me entertained most of the time. Lisa Gardner is a really good writer and I will keep on listening to her novels.

All I can say is that the author writes very well and tells a interesting story. All the characters are well drawn but the ending was one with a twist that I could not believe in. That being said I ended up feeling cheated with a far-fetched ending . I felt angry instead of satisfied after finishing a good listen.

Three Things About Elsie audiobook cover art

Very well written But a sad story about aging.

Overall

Sorry to say that this beautifully written book is about old age and the view of it was more than depressing. Not really a mystery just a story of how time and age and how it takes it's toll. The ending is sad and does tie up the ends nicely. I would not read this again and feel I must warn anyone who is sensitive about this topic. I am sorry I used a credit and will ask for it back.

This was a very slow and complicated mystery. The group of players were diverse with a very involved back story But when you get to the point where you see what the author is getting at it becomes a interesting look at these peoples lives and the impact of a crime and its aftermath. Well written and Narrated flawlessly by Tavia Gilbert. Worth a credit YES

Can you say dumbed down to the point of stupid. Why would a progressive female of any era portray herself as really slow on the up take and clueless when looking into murder. I could not relate and will not continue with the series.

I like Anne Bishop books. The writing is smooth and flows no matter what the story. This book is in the world of the others. With all new folks to follow and enjoy. Not fast paced and a story that has been told in the last 4 books but I still enjoyed all of them and will keep following how humans and the others live together.

I enjoy a Vera Stanhope Mystery and it's great to visit old friends again. This one fell short although it was well written. I knew who did the crime from the first. Only one suspect had the skill set to get away and hide in plain sight. But I will still follow this series.
