Great Beginning to a Great Series

This is a great book and Harry Blue is a great character. My wife and I listened to the second book "Never Never" in the series first. We liked it so much we looked to see if there was a collection around the Harry Blue character and found this book. Now we can hardly wait for the next book in the series to come out.
The same lady reads both books and she definitely adds to the entertainment value. I hope she continues with the series too.

Great character

Love the character of detective Blue. Not sure if it's because of the story, because or Faraday Holmes' narration, or a combination of the two.

I usually prefer hard copy reads as I love the whole tactile portion of reading, the hurried turning of the page at an exciting point in the story, the anxious shifting as you reach a pivotal moment in the book, and the physical finality of closing the book upon itself once the story is complete.

I was taken in...by this story...this narrator, and was able to truly enjoy my first audiobook fiction.

Two thumbs up from me!

Did not like

It uses the "F" to much for me. I couldn't get into the story foam the swearing.

My first Book Shot!

Loved the characters Blue and Tox—both were damaged but compelling. The narrator did an amazing job.

Can't wait for "Never Never"

Well written, characters worth investing in with a clear concise back story & a nice swerve at the end. All in all a winner!

Exciting, but ...

Mostly great, but the story could have had more depth. Also, the super short chapters, in audio format are really annoying.

I hated it!

This is the worst James Patterson I have ever read. I only kept listening because I was sure it had to get better, it was a James Patterson after all. It did not!

Another great work

My first James Patterson book shots. I love it and the story of it. I might as well listen to other book shots by this Author.

Narrators can make or break a book

I wish I had read the book instead of listening to the audible version. I think ( yes I have to put it that way) that I liked the story line. The narration so annoyed me I had trouble keeping focused on the story. Do authors listen to the audible version before authorizing, because they should.
