Surprisingly good.

There were a couple trips where I cringed...such as, "first time I craved a drink" when the protagonist had mentioned he craved a drink before...but all in all, very well done. Subtle. I downloaded this because it was free and I usually use free included with my membership to listen to while I am working. I actually had to stop this a few times and rewind because I wanted to hear the last plot twist unlike most of the freebies which you can pick back up just about anywhere like a bad soap opera. Had to rewind the ending a few times...won't say more. I might spend a credit on this author's other books. It's a good read.

Loved hearing Joshua Jackson

Interesting story concept. I was drawn to this book because of Joshua Jackson. I hope he chooses to do more narrating. I will give this author another read.

Traumatized

Sorry to be negative but I found so many parts of this to be disturbing, vile, upsetting and nightmare inducing. I didn’t even finish it even though I wanted to know what happened. But I could not take the disgusting grossness of much of it. Blessings to the author and apologies for my honesty.

Well worth a listen.

Mr. Pyper has crafted a solid supernatural mystery. Full of depth, and nuance. What I enjoyed most was the Pyper's exploration of the effects of "the gift" on the recipient. Although the tone was different, it reminded me of "Odd Thomas". Joshua Jackson gave a respectable reading, though at times I had to rewind to be sure who had said what. But better that than suffering through the pain of falsetto female voices!

Joshua Jackson brought an ok story to life!

The reading of this story was incredible! The inflection and pauses, voices, all perfect and created a compelling and intriguing listening experience. You felt the story come alive because of the reading of it so intuitive. The story was ok, not bad but just ok, lots of plot holes, and cringe worthy lines. But Joshua Jackson took an ok story and made it a can't stop listen. Disappointed it's over and hope Joshua Jackson decides to breath life into many more stories in the future.

perfect casting

Interesting supernatural crime thriller. Joshua Jackson perfectly cast as protagonist, though maybe not as skilled at bringing the rest of the characters to light as some of the more regular narrators but the story is really a one man show anyway.

Not my usual thing but enjoyable

I expected this to be a detective story with a psychic twist, it turned out to be more of a mixture than that. I normally like books grounded in reality, but this was well written and the story carried me along. There are some clever twists, an unexpected ending, and it’s a book that leaves you thinking

What an amazing story!

This book had me hanging on every word from the beginning.
The narrator has a great voice and told the story so well, he was completely believable in this role.
I will be looking out for this author again especially if his books are read by Joshua Jackson!!!

Wow!

I could not stop listening to this book! Found it refreshingly different and so compelling. Wondering if this is a one off or the start of a series - hope its the latter!

Really Enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book. It was different and kept me occupied until the end. I thought he may have left it open for a sequel but it doesn't look that way.May be wrong. I'll wait to be surprised . I will definitely look out for other books by this author.

Monotone dull

I can’t understand why people said Joshua Jackson was good! Maybe they’re confusing his dull flat reading with his great acting.
If you didn’t get scared to death by the story which was ok , you would be bored to death by the narration. He only has one tone - flat.

Riveting story & brilliant narration

Gripping story from the get-go. Recent narration by Joshua Jackson. Really hope he does more. Clever plot. Very well constructed and delivered. Got it free but would very happily have paid. Thank you!!!

(Listened to it at 1.2x speed which was perfect)

Ok - kind of average

It may be that I don't love FBI agent characters (I find spy novels, for the most part, extremely dull), but this felt a bit flat and reserved, with a character that didn't progress or have a clear, high level of motivation for an end goal (although the ending was unexpected, and therefore more interesting). Narration was good but didn't fit a character described as 'hulking' and like a 'boxer'. In short, it was a bit too introspective and passive, and just not terribly sexy, for want of a better word. Supporting characters were very boring and didn't improve the story. I think maybe stories involving abduction and grieving relatives are played out. You need to have something new to offer.

I'd say this was trashy, except I was so addicted I finished it in 4 days. Plus the writing is decent. I recommend!

Loved it Loved it Loved it

I have found a new favorite author. I’ve never really been into murders but this was such a great book. I loved the way it was written. I loved the story. I loved the details. And Joshua Jackson read it with such feeling that I felt I was there. Awesome.
