Very Intense

More intense than I thought it would be. Like the first book, there are a LOT of characters to get to grips with, and a lot of suspense. Found it a bit too highly strung with not enough comfortable moments in between.

Also like the last one...the title seems completely unrelated. Sure, it could be tied into any part of the storyline, but it seems to almost be clickbait, as it doesn't really tell you about the story. To me, the title implies that something happened right before she died, however the story does not focus on that at all.

I enjoyed the read but personally feel a bit tired after listening to it.

A gripping novel

It is indeed an unputdownable thriller. Kept me riveted till the end. I read part of the book and listened to part of it. I recommend it highly. The only negative thing i could think of is that when the suspense unravels it does seem a bit unrealistic. But I could be wrong. There could be a lot of psychopaths out there who could resort to murdering people and mistreating women in the real world. All in all highly recommended reading!

Would not recommend

I liked the first book but a few hours into this one I had to finally stop because the story line started reading more like a bad slasher movie: when you start thinking how dumb a person has to be to go into the woods in the middle of the night by herself to.....I would have liked more intelligence. Not sure that I now want to buy the third one just the series.

Thriller with interesting characters

I liked this book more than I thought I would. The detective (Gina) is tender with her own flaws. The storyline is interesting with some creepy characters.

A good page turner, but...

After recently reading the 1st book in the series as well, I'm hoping the 3rd in the series moves away from "the deranged and abusive man mentally and physically abuses and belittles the woman he claims to love, keeping her imprisoned" theme.

Good story but...

The story was interesting, if predictable. I knew who did it after the second chapter. My biggest issue was the heroine, Gina Harte. She hasn’t got the sense God have a goose. It’s hard to believe her character is a ranking police officer who survived her 20s with her lack of self-protectiveness or common sense.

Two Very Enthusiastic Thumbs DOWN!

This was very predictable and there were no twists. If you like Lisa Gardner, you will be very disappointed with this book. If not for the narrator, I would have never made it to the end.

Hated to take breaks!

A multi faceted novel mixing the personal life of a detective, the search for a missing woman, as well as some of the story being told in the perspective of the kidnapper. An engaging listen

Is this another rhetorical question?

I got a bit exasperated by this one, constant rhetorical questions supposed to guide you away from or towards answers leave you feeling irritated and I rolled my eyes a few too many times.
The story was sadly disappointing and there are many plot holes following the last book.

The narrator is good overall but the histerical woman voices become grating.

Rushing a main character along doesn't mean you're ramping up the anticipation. I felt as if I was being hurried through the story which in the end was a blessing because It felt as if I finished the book faster.

I won't be reading any more from this author.

Loved it, book 3 here I come

Loving the Detective Inspector Gina Harte series, I’d been looking for a new book to listen to when I found the second book so decided to listen to the first one and start at the beginning, I’m so glad I did it that way round and this one didn’t disappoint. For me the narrator is Gina Harte, loved it!
Now onto book 3.
