I love all of Adler-Olsen's previous novels but this book was just a mess. I couldn't wait for it to end...kept looking at the time remaining and was always disappointed by how much was left. Also repeatedly checked to see if I had accidentally downloaded something by the wrong author. It was that bad. I didn't care if any main characters lived or died, I just wanted it to end. The plot was ridiculous and relied on so many coincidences. Finally down to less than an hour left but wanted to post the review now to hopefully save others from downloading this book.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I kept waiting for the book to end so I could stop listening to this narrator. Ruined what could very well be a good story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kim Gordon’s performances?

I will be sure to avoid any book she reads

Would you ever listen to anything by Madeleine Roux again?

Yes, liked the first book, but not this one

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jessica Almasy?

No

Any additional comments?

I was disappointed in this follow-up to a solid first book. The story didn't really have the same feel as the first and went downhill fast. Lots of cliches and impossible coincidences. Didn't care for the overly perky narration.
