Publisher's Summary

One final game of cat and mouse...

Ex-FBI agent Elliot Mills thought he was done with the most brutal case of his career. The Sculptor, the serial killer he spent years hunting, is finally in jail. But Elliot's hope dies when he learns the murderer wasn't acting alone. Now everyone is at risk once again - thanks to a madman determined to finish his partner's gruesome mission.

When the lead agent on the case, Special Agent Tucker Lance, goes missing, Elliot knows it's the killer at work. After all, abducting the love of Elliot's life is the quickest way to hurt him.

The chances of finding Tucker are all but impossible without the help of the Sculptor - but the Sculptor is in no position to talk. Critically injured in a prison fight, he lies comatose and dying while the clock ticks down. Elliot has no choice but to play this killer's twisted game and hope he can find Tucker in time.

    "What a Book!"
    Would you listen to Fair Chance again? Why?

    Absolutely. I rarely write reviews but was so blown away by the book and the narration that I couldn't resist.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Pretty much everything!


    Which character – as performed by J. F. Harding – was your favorite?

    Tucker!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I almost did . . . took several hours out of my day (and evening). I couldn't sleep so finally listened to the last two hours of the book starting about 2 am.


    Any additional comments?

    I generally like books by Josh Lanyon (and own quite a few in ebook format and audio) and this book was no exception. Prior to this series my favorite was the Adrien English series. However, with the last book in the "All's Fair" series this one wins hands down for me. I wonder if this is the last in the series . . . it seems like it . . . sadly.

    "Wow"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    As a big fan of MM and a devoted fan of Josh Lanyon, I think this may be the most well-written MM book I have ever read. The story was fast-paced as well as easy-to-follow. And, as someone who has read just about every one of Josh's books, I sense a real elevation in the quality of the storytelling. Not to say anyone should avoid the earlier books--they are very well written. It's like if Josh was the Beatles, this would be "Revolver." (And I imagine an "Abbey Road" is yet to come.)


    Would you ever listen to anything by Josh Lanyon again?

    Certainly


    How could the performance have been better?

    Considering the narrator brings a somber serious tone to this book (I remember him from the previous book in this series) I was pleasantly surprised that he can bring in a number of characters (male, female, serious, folksy). (The somber serious tone was appropriate and I hope the narrator continues with the series.)Folksy can be problematic. It's a tough line to follow if you're trying to portray an older local law enforcement officer without sounding like Wilfred Brimley. If you want an example of how this can go dreadfully wrong, check out the audiobook of "Middlesex."Given this is one of the stumbling blocks of fiction audiobooks, I'd say the narrator did a great job of handling these. Though, I swear, his elderly foster mother was a dead-on Joan Rivers.


    What character would you cut from Fair Chance?

    Well, given I hate bad guys, I'd say Corian. But then there wouldn't be a story.So I might say the Japanese-American FBI agent, because she came across too stereotypical. If she were simply portrayed as an FBI agent who happened to be Japanese-American, it would have been better


    Any additional comments?

    "Fair Chance" has made several hours of driving a much more interesting and pleasurable experience

    "Amazing!"

    This is one of the rare audiobooks that I have not read previously. I absolutely loved it! The story and mystery gripped me. I felt like I was on the edge of my seat for most of it. The narrator, JF Harding, was amazing as usual.

    Josh Lanyon continues to be one of my favorite authors and she never lets me down. This was an awesome conclusion to the All's Fair trilogy!

    I love this book and series! Both the story and narrator are fantastic! I know this series is finished but I'd love if there were more books following Elliott's investigations!

    J F Harding is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators. This book was beautifully narrated. I loved the story and thought it was the perfect end to Elliot and Tucker's story.

    "Utterly satisfying ending of a series."

    J F Harding did a brilliant job on narrating this book.
    He nailed the voices of Elliot and Tucker and the other characters as well.
    At no time did I have to figure out who was speaking.
    The story was told with a steady pacing and captured the inner turmoil of Elliot, the creeping dread he felt at the events unfolding, the helplessness and the terror he felt were all there displayed for us by J F Harding.
    The lighter moments had me grinning along with the characters.
    With an audiobook the story might be outstanding but if the narrator does a bad job then it can spoil the story.
    I didn't read the book first but listened to the audio.
    I would listen to this guy read the classifieds and he would make it interesting.
    Great book and even better listening to the audio.

    "DNF killed a dog"
    Would you try another book from Josh Lanyon and/or J. F. Harding?

    Absolutely not for this author.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe 20 minutes into the book, we, the listener, are lead to believe that the stray dog that Mills has found, may be become a new friend for him. So much so this author goes into the detail of the dog, breed, eye color, weight loss, possible length of stay by itself. A few minutes later, a secondary character SHOOTS the dog! WHAT! She try's to explain why, but I, the listener, can not see a reason for this. Why build us up, what purpose did this service? except to kill a harmless animal?
    Nope, DNF, returned. And done.

    "Relies too heavily on hero'd unreasonable decisions"

    There are parts of this book that are so bad that I had to fast forward through it. I cannot stand when a writer makes smart characters act stupid. I usually enjoy Josh Lanyon's work this was a miss. You cannot allow a character to go missing without immediate investigation. This is not the way to write law enforcement.

    "Well narrated thriller"

    3.5 stars
    I was really looking forward to this final outing for Elliot and Lance, but in the end, it was a mixed bag for me. The narration was solid, but I found there was a nasty hiss with the 's' sound at the end of sentences for the first few hours of the book. I'm not sure if it got better as the book went on or if I just tuned out and got into the story more.

    The first half of the book dragged, and the plot meandered all over the place with red - herrings a plenty. I found it really frustrating at times, especially the way Lanyon had written Elliot's internal monologs. Some of his thought processes were repetitive and nonsensical like she was dragging things out to hit a specific word count. (I really hate it when authors do that.) I wondered at times how the hell Elliot ever became an agent if that is how his mind works.

    Suffice to say that when a major plot point occurred and Elliot didn't act straight away I was completely aghast. I'm not in law enforcement, and I have zero crime training but any fool knows that the fact they were investigating a serial killer who had a thing for Elliot meant they needed to be on guard 24/7.

    I was expecting a more explosive ending but it was kind of taken out of Elliot and Lance's hands much too easily and ends were tied without either actually being involved. Anyway. I'm sure Lanyon mega fans will eat this up no matter what.
