Summary

"The plot of an Alafair Burke thriller doesn’t just rip from the headlines. She’s one step ahead of them. 212 scares you and keeps you turning the pages into the wee hours." (Harlan Coben)

"Burke has created a strong female protagonist in the tradition of Sara Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski and Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone.... Utterly authentic." (Boston Globe)

212 is acclaimed author - and former deputy district attorney - Alafair Burke’s gripping thriller featuring hip, Manhattan-based detective Ellie Hatcher. Fans of Lisa Gardner, Sandra Brown, Karin Slaughter, Harlan Coben, Sue Grafton, and PJ Tracy will find it hard to stop listening to 212 until the very last moment.

Not a new book

This is not a new book in the Ellie Hatcher series. It is “city of lies” (book 3 I think) with a different narrator. Very disappointed as I was looking forward to it and had on preorder. Returned.

Not stellar

Not up to par with other books by this author. I really dislike even a narrator tries to "play" every character. Just read the book.

Couldn't finish it

I've listened to a few of Alafair Burke's books and liked them. But this one, after about an hour listening to the drone of the narrarater, I couldn't do it any longer. I rarely abandon a book, but this one was slow starting and the boring tone was unbearable.
