The Manhattan waterfront is one of New York City's most beautiful vistas, boasting both the Statue of Liberty and the George Washington Bridge, the world's busiest traffic bridge. Assistant DA Alexandra Cooper and Detective Mike Chapman, in the midst of their own growing relationship, take on a case that forces them apart as a killer's twisted plan draws ever closer to home.

"One of my favourite writers...her stories never fail to thrill." (Karin Slaughter)
Though advertised as Barbara Rosenblat, mostly it is someone different. Male. He sounds too old for Mike Chapman and the New York accent is forced, he also has a separate accent for the African American police, which feels slightly racist as it is too "street". I played the male part at 1.25 speed and it flowed better .
The story is especially weak, Chapman solves a riddle too easily. Storylines are dropped and forgotten. Chapman simply did not sound male. Males do not think the way she wrote him, too Mills and Boon.
"Very Poor- So poor I checked if I'd missed some"
EFFORT from the author. Lazy and plotless.... so obvioius.
The worst part is that there are 2 plot lines she doesn't even bother to address at the end - so if you read about the IT theft and the death of the Reverend's money collector don't expect to find out any more about them: one of these gets a bare mention but no actual resolution.
She doesn't even bother to make a cliff hanger of the unresolved parts...
Return to the form she used to have in earlier books: this means she needs editors who tell her the truth (or else she cynically does not care...)
Excellent as ever - the only saving grace of this rubbish plot...
It is not about cutting it is about bothering to add needed scenes into the book....
What a waste of a listen! This is one to return!
