I have enjoyed most of Lisa Scottoline's books before this one - but I really couldn't stomach it past the first few chapters. The characters were just behaving in a nonsensical way - if your child was injured in a fire - you would not rush into a hospital and scream at another person - laying the blame at their door.
If your own child was in a place of danger you wouldn't even think twice, you would go and try to save them, you wouldn't dither and make a decision as to whether or not you could save this one or that one, you would yell to someone - 'see these kids out - I am going to get my daughter!'. Definitely not for me - total rubbish, and so disappointing!
On top of the dopey story - the voice of the narrator seemed to be in a depressing minor key, I found this annoying before I started to get even MORE annoyed by the story.
A Waste of a couple of hours, and a waste of a valuable credit!
"A good listen..."
The portrail of the 8yr old daughter was so spot on I wanted to climb into the book and shake the girl into reality.... I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster, I raged at the media, feared the unknown and was intrrigued by the storyline.
