Witty

Loved this short story. Laughed all the way thru it. I’m a big fan of Kirsten Potter. Will listen to most anything she narrates.

Disappointed

This is NOT a book. I would describe it as a short story and a TOTAL rip off of Murder on the Orient Express. What is even more disappointing is the fact I used 1 credit to purchase it. I will be contacting Audible for a refund. This should be a free gift with a purchase. I really like this author too, so so disappointed. Not original work.

Well done!

Well done story... performance great... like a old time “who-done-it” the characters were less visible throughout until the story’s ending revelations while keeping the characters close at hand.

97 Minutes of Great Storytelling

Detective D. D. Warren comes home after a day dealing with the most bizarre case she can recall and shares the experience with her husband over a glass of wine. A man walks into the station and is convinced he’s already dead. A few hours after they dispatch him home, they receive a call that this time he’s truly dead. I’m not a fan of novellas but I’m warming to those in this series because they’re cleverly crafted. And, if you have the good fortune to listen to them on audio, you’ll get the added benefit of Kirsten Potter’s sarcastic delivery, completely in tandem with the how the story is written. At the last minute, I decided to use a coupon to get the audiobook from Audible and treated myself to a fun 97 minutes of storytelling. I had no clue where this story would lead and how it would end but I didn’t care because I enjoyed the journey. Just read it and if you can get the audio version, go for it!

fun!

True to the classic whodunit style, nod to Agatha Christy and Clue! she should give this book away as a teaser. it stands alone and doesn't need the rest of the series to support it.

FINALLY A RETURN TO A SUCCESSFUL FORMULA

This story was wonderful and long overdue; Ms Gardner has returned to a successful formula with D D Warren and eliminated the Flora Dane character in previous books. The books with the Dane character were so very disappointing. I almost stopped reading Ms Gardner! This was wonderful and I once again look forward to future books.

You'll be wishing it was longer!

For $6.99 I couldn't pass it up! I have listened to ALL of Lisa Gardner's books at least twice....psst, more like three times. I love a good mystery. I also lean more toward books that run in a series. Ms. Gardner's books have NEVER disappointed me.

Short, but fun

I usually only purchase books with my credits. But this one was on sale, I’m a big fan of Lisa Gardner, and so I decided to spend the $5. Well worth it. This was a quick, fun book of the who-done-it variety. Lisa Gardner’s other books are usually very disturbing and showcases the worst of human kind. This was an easy, pleasant listen. The narrator did a nice job in keeping me entertained.
