This is an interesting detective book. Nothing too twisty but makes you guessing who'd done it until the end. Not as intriguing as some detective books but very enjoyable.

Brilliant

The only regret I have is I devoured it over only 2 days. The legal proceedings are just brilliant, I can never guess or anticipate the tactic and court room strategies used. An innocent person can be found guilty makes me feel that law is flawed and the truth should matter more than what law allows or not allows. One of Connelly's best.

A bit rushed

A good conclusion of the trilogy. However, it seems a bit rushed after the built up. It is a good in-between series for me, took me out of my normal detective/lawyer/crime genre. A bit of YA books is very entertaining.

I am hooked

I am already listening to #3 in this series says something. It is action packed and makes you want to know what happens next. The story line and Fletcher maybe a bit cliché- Fletcher is not the best talent but has the principle of right and wrong, but it is entertaining. It kept my ear pods firmly in place for many hours.

Bought the #2 in the series already

Interesting story and the writer gets you hooked, well, got me hooked. It is a fantasy story, it is about good vs greedy and evil ones and "heroes" with unbending principles. One would have thought a typical story line, but this one was told well and with twists/surprises. Very enjoyable. If you like Game of Thrones, The Witcher, get it, you will like it.

As always very enjoyable

Just like other books in this series, I get hooked instantly. I read one of the reviews that said the story is a bit far fetched, I agree when I analyzed it, however, the book is fast paced and Kim as usual is a great character, could not stop listening.

They say racism is getting better in Australia?

Very interesting read from the perspective of an Australian born British/Jamaican ancestry author. Being an immigrant, I share her experience and yes, even today. People say it is getting better? Really? Those people are not "coloured". The saddest thing was that I even felt blessed when the attention shifted from racism to religious bias- a sigh of relief that I was not targeted for a while. I work for a company that advocates equality, especially LTBGIQ, however, the Board has no other colours but white. I think it will take another generation for us truly multicultural and I only hope my children and their off-springs get a fairer go.

Although I can't imagine how anyone can behave like Emma towards her ex and child of ex, it was an enjoyable listening. I think the story telling was great even the premises was flawed- let's be honest, Emma is a door mat, six years is a long time to be ex' child's nanny.

A good yarn

Good story and gave me a glimpse of women in WWII. How different it is now for women and we should thank these women for paving the way for us today.

Can't stop listening. The background story is so enticing, the legal drama is so believable and Jake, a great person/lawyer. Grisham is again a great story teller.
