Summary

Forensic linguist Macy Reid is an expert on kidnapping, having been abducted when she was a child. So, she is the perfect investigator to be called in when a Denver tycoon's 11-year-old daughter is abducted - for the second time. But Macy's biggest stumbling block may be a member of her own team: Kellan Burke, the wise-cracking, rule-breaking investigator who relishes getting under Macy's skin - and who just may be the man to help her confront the demons from her past.

Grrrrrr!

Great book but leaving the ending so open spoiled it for me which is why I've giving it 4 out of 5 for the story.

A great story by an author I haven’t read before.

I really enjoyed the story line and the whole book in general. What I didn’t like was what I think is the production of the audio. Within one chapter there would be a change over between characters and events in the story lines. This is different from other chapter books where a change in characters was noted by a change in chapters. In this book you would be listening to 2 characters having a conversation then without pause it would be 2or 3 other characters in a totally different scene talking. The break between was not noticeable and I would be listening along and suddenly realise somewhere it changed. I was frequently scrolling back a minute or two to find where it changed so that I could visualise in my head who and where the characters were. It’s very disconcerting and I believer there should be an more obvious pause by the narrators when changing characters.

Soap saga

Hated the cliff hanger, would not have bought the book had I known it was such. Forces the reader to buy the continuing saga. Love Bronson Pinchot as a reader. The only reason I finished it.

Can you spare a 3 second pause between scenes?

Good story, although fairly predictable. Narration quite good--he came up with a lot of compelling voices, but he does need to learn how to pronounce "participle". Editing could be better--it was unnerving to have nonsensical dialogue for several sentences before you realize that the scene and characters have changed.Could you spare a 3 second pause between scenes?

Okay read

Chapters and new sequences just seems to run right into each other. Sometimes you had to rewind to try to figure out what sentence started the new person talking. Sigh. Story line basically okay

Lame especially the narration 🙄

Skipped through parts of it! Who does that with a mystery? I still have 4 hours left, but I can't finish it. The narration is critical in an audio book...duh! I kept telling myself, "The story is not too bad." but narration killed the story for me.

Suspense

Setting: Near Conifer, Colorado Contemporary to 2015 Genre: Romantic suspense Macy Reid and Kellan Burke are both employed by Raker Forensics, a private consultancy company. The owner, Adam Raker, was contacted by a Steven Mulder to investigate the kidnapping of his daughter, Ellie. Mr. Mulder does not trust the FBI because they had not rescued Ellie the first time she’d been kidnapped — but Adam had, during the course of a different investigation. However, Adam insists that at the very least state law enforcement should be involved. Now, the Raker team is working with people from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Sheriff’s Department. Macy is a forensic linguist as well as an investigator, like Kellan. As well as figuring out who kidnapped the child, there is an ongoing slow burn interest between Kellan and Macy. You see that three star rating I gave this book? The plot is great, with enough suspense to keep you reading. The characters are well-developed, from the protagonists, through the secondaries, all the way to the villain. The dialogue is clear and moves the plot along, and the grammar and usage are excellent. So. What did I have a problem with? I’m pretty sure no one, regardless of wealth, could keep the FBI from investigating a child abduction. Sure, state law enforcement could handle most issues within their own state, but in the case of an Amber Alert, the FBI gets involved. Aside from that, I have a problem classifying this as romantic suspense. Perhaps I should just call it suspense with sex, because I just could not feel the chemistry between Kell and Macy. My biggest issue was the lack of resolution. Sure, they took care of the kidnapping, but who planned it? And, on a personal level - for Macy - will she be brave enough to follow up on that huge hint Castillo dropped on her regarding her own abduction? Well I can tell you this much — I won’t be finding out. I hate cliffhangers. They are just a manipulative way for an author to get you to buy the next book. I probably would have gone back and read the first 3 books in the series, probably would have stayed with the series through all 9 books. But nope. Nuh-uh. Not gonna do it. This author just went on my $#*t list. The audio production and narration are excellent. Half of the reason I got this (the other half being the sale price) was the narrator. I had always seen good ratings for Bronson Pinchot and I wanted to hear for myself. I am delighted with his performance.

Best Mind Hunters Yet

It started out slow and I wasn’t sure that I was going to enjoy this book. I was happy once the story picked up. The thing that I didn’t like about the book were the transitions between scenes/chapters. I really enjoyed Kellan’s character. I liked that he was fun and joked around and had a wittiness about him. For a romantic suspense book, it could have had a bit more romance added into it.
