I read the book in paperback long enough ago to have not remembered all the details clearly, so was happy to make this one of my monthly Audible choices. David Colacci's performance was excellent, making the characters come alive, and has made several car journeys go much quicker as I listened. I would definitely recommend this as a great book for a long flight or train journey too.

I've enjoyed several of Tami Hoag's novels, a good level of believable characters, well devised plots, and stories you can get involved in. I will definitely look for more Audible versions of her work in future.

Awful delivery

I had high hopes of this one.... but I am having to give up on it. Matt Dillon's awful monotonous delivery is doing absolutely nothing for me, and I am finding I have no inclination to go on with it. I usually listen to my current audible book for 45 minutes at a time while walking my dog looking forward to the next installment, but after three days of switching off after 15 minutes, I am moving on to the next book in my library.



A much slower pace...

I've been listening to this book while walking the dog – and I freely admit there were times when I felt the author could have moved the pace along a bit.But then, this is the South, and the wonderful voice of the narrator combined with the unexpected ending has kept me listening to the end. This is not city crime, and its a definite break from my normal high body count preferences.



I'm not advocating this as the perfect listen if you chose to walk your dog in unlit country places at night: it isn't, you'll start imagining footsteps behind you! And I'm not certain I would have read the paper version of the book, but I thought the combination of Ms Locke's writing & Quincy Tyler Bernstine's reading worked well together, and I will probably look for other work by both.
