Summary

Cassandra "Cassie" Finsbury has spent almost 25 years running for her life, hiding from everyone who knew her and hoping it was enough to keep her daughter safe. When she learns that she no longer has to run, she is determined to find Daniela again and hires private investigator Bailey Davenport, a retired FBI agent, who is more than up to the task. Bailey finds nothing more irresistible than a mystery and a challenge, and in Cassie she finds both.

Can Bailey find the key to unlock more than just Cassie's secrets? Finn and Oz are pulled into the world of extremists and must keep their wits about them to survive a deadly game of cat and mouse whilst Finn's growing need to find the mother she believed dead takes her on a roller-coaster journey.

Good story

Good story but the narration was poor. Lady fish was done with a british narrator who did very good american voices unfortunately the narrator here was incapable of a british or any other accent other than american - shame would have been excellent with ladyfish's narrator.

Ruined by the reading

My enjoyment of the story was completely ruined by the narrators over emphasis on even bland sentences. The story was on the edge of being too over the top anyway but could have been more believable if the reading had been more subtle and nuanced. The lack of English accent - let alone Manchester- for one of the central characters was lazy and unforgivable. Ms Bramhalls Norfolk based novels are much better I just hope that if and when they get performed they get better treatment

Excellent book

The story was excellent and engaging throughout its length.
My only criticism was the narrator she wasn't as easy to listen with as the narrator in ladyfish.

I am an Audiobookaholic! but I found this hard

As promised, my review after completing it. IT IS hard to get into, the narrator does really well to inhabit various characters, some narrators can ruin a book, but Dara Rosenburg does well. It probably took a while becauee there's not a lot of description initially. but it's a strong story, and doesn't give til almost the end of the book, just toward tge ends, all things come full circle and make sense. I rarely do spoilers, this is definitely not a book for spoilers. You need to dive in and get through all the pre-amble for it to make any sense, yes it's not one of those books you can skim through, each paragraph is revealing. Enjoy!

Romance with a Brain

The series is captivating and riveting. Ms. Bramhall always does a great job of showing as many sides as possible while challenging our intellect.

Frightening Plot could be seen on CCN

This without a doubt was the best story of this genre I have ever read/listened to. This is the first of Ms Bramhalls' offerings that I have read/listened to and I am totally blown away. The story involves two couples who are tied together without really knowing it. Ms Bramhill kept a great balance through out the book. It was almost like reading/listening two separate books until she weaved them together seamlessly. The pace was fast without being overwhelmed. I see this as Rizzoli and Isles, Cagney and Lacey, in a James Bondish type setting. The plot lines could have been taken directly out of news sources of today, frighteningly so. Being prior military and a cop to boot I found the story is believable and pretty much accurate. The only issue that I had dealing with the audio portion, and not necessarily her fault, was when she referred to the Britishs' MI6 as M(Sixteen) very minor. I was not aware of her previous offering of "Ladyfish" and as far as I am concerned, even though this is a sequel it can stand on its own. With that being said I will definitely read/listen to "Ladyfish." Wonderful job Andrea!!!

Worst Narration Ever

Horrible narrator who couldn’t do a British accent to save her life. And could read tension or suspense either. Such an incredible writer, I wish I would have just read this...

Great story,

The only thing is that when someone write fiction and uses history in it, the fact of history should be accurate and not fake, by bringing inaccurate historical facts the whole story is messed up...
shame...

I truly enjoyed this book

it was a surprise when I bought this book that it was a continuation of the other one Lady Fish, which was great. the narration was good , funny at times when it came to some.of the characters.
his book was engaging, exciting, lots of awww moments and some sweet tears.
there is a part that should come.with a disclaimer. as some could find it to be a trigger. the violently told rape is relived in this book more that when it's brought up in Lady Fish.
However this book was well written, very likeable characters and enjoyable story line.

Ho Hum Overall

I was able to finish this book - so it wasn't horrible but it wasn't good either. The Narrator's pronunciation of "Baby" grated on my nerves. It is supposed to be a term of endearment but she made it sound like an accusation.

How a narrator can ruin a book.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I read reviews about this book and how some where upset that narrator had changed from the first book. I thought it was ok because it was actually different characters in the spotlight. However, you can't keep making mention of a British Accent that simply does not exist.

What did you like best about this story?

Not really sure.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Dara Rosenberg?

Depends. This one wasn't a good selling point for her. The character voice was not good, she referred to Cassie as Casey multiple times.

Do you think Swordfish needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I was excited about the second book, but just not the reader.

Any additional comments?

It wasn't a complete waste. Get the book and read it yourself would be my advice.

NARRATOR WAS AWFUL - COULDN'T EVEN FINISH THE BOOK

What disappointed you about Swordfish?

The narrator was ridiculously awful - What happened to Finn's accent? Why does Oz sound like a sleaze-basket? UGH, I ended up asking for a refund.

Has Swordfish turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I'm actually interested in the story, so I'll end up reading it on Kindle.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Where do I start??? Crazy breathy voice that sounded like she was whining the whole time, unless of course she was butchering Finn's English accent, or the name of the bio-weapon, or....I couldn't even pay attention to the story line!

Any additional comments?

Super disappointed with the author for the selection of the narrator.
