When I started listening I struggled and wondered if I would stick it out. After getting very used to Joe Coen I originally found the narration monotonous BUT I stuck at it and can now say how much I loved the book and Ben’s voice grew on me. The story by the end was one of my favourites in the series. Still David Raker’s biggest fan!!

This is the first abridged version and I did wish I’d had the fully developed story- hence a 4 star review BUT it was still a great listen. I love Rizzoli and Isles books and it doesn’t seem to matter that I’m listening in the wrong order.
Would recommend this and other Gerritsen’s!

The reviews put me off a little but I loved this! I love the character of Jackman and the plot was fantastic. Intriguing, gripping at times and interesting.
The narration is FABULOUS and I could listen to Richard Armitage all day. I’d love to see Jackman on the telly. I’ll be downloading book 2.

This was another brilliant Raker novel. Despite some negative reviews I found this totally absorbing and fascinating. Okay quite a far fetched story at times but who cares! I don’t want real life in every book! It was still credible. A fascinating read overall and definitely recommended. I didn’t see the ending coming
