Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pgchuis | 2/7/2014

    " I loved the first half of this book, but I found the second half sickening in places and implausible in others. My least favourite of the three so far, but the characters are good and I look forward to the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 1/26/2014

    " This is the third Hazel book and I understand there are to be 3 more. A different type of mystery than the Louise Penny books which also take place in Canada. As always I loved the interactions between Hazel and her almost 88 yr old mother who was once the mayor of their town. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 judy | 1/25/2014

    " This book simply did not work for me. There are numerous reasons but to make it simple--the plot is just waaaaay over the top. I wish the author hadn't tried so hard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 12/18/2013

    " 3rd book with Hazel Micallef - a good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 12/11/2013

    " This was a fun read....just the right amount of surprising gruesomeness! It's the first one I've read by this author but it won't be the last. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 12/2/2013

    " A harrowing look into organized, commercial sexual violence. The ending is implausible in the way the genre seems to demand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Ingvaldsen | 11/21/2013

    " The third in the Hazel Micallef mystery series set in the prototypical small-town Ontario town of Port Dundas: a gritty, well-paced and impressively written thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L-J Johnson | 9/18/2013

    " Less Hester private life, more about the case. But I liked that. And I liked the focus on James too. Excellent like the first two. Superior writing, tremendously fascinating characters, and more so in this one than the other two, a very involving and affecting story. Can't wait for more Hester. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 VickiLee | 8/26/2013

    " The first two novels in this series captivated me. This one, however, created a sense of restless boredom as I read about an unpleasant topic that has been the premise of numerous books. I will keep hopeful, and wait for the fourth book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 8/5/2013

    " Love this series. I think this was the best of the three so far. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 7/24/2013

    " A excellent book! Fast moving action, intense situations, and relatable characters. A great read, that I fully enjoyed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J | 6/16/2013

    " Loved the first half....the second skimmed a bit... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alsjem | 5/23/2013

    " I like the main character and her mum but the whole story doesn't hang together somehow. That said I did enjoy it, especially the final third. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda Elizabeth | 4/3/2013

    " This is a good enough crime thriller, a nice pace and not too ridiculous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 1/24/2013

    " This is a great series by a Canadian author. Each book is better than the last one. (This is the 3rd in the series). This is book has a great plot with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. A great read for people who enjoy suspense and mystery. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dorie | 11/7/2012

    " Really good story, but disturbing to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/29/2012

    " I thought this was the best of the three (so far) 'Hazel Micallef' mysteries. At least the formatting of this library e-book was much better than the previous two that suffered from many missing paragraph breaks, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Ould | 10/29/2012

    " Great book, third in the series. Enjoyed them all. "

    " I really enjoyed this. I wasn't entirely sold on the first book in the series, but book 3 was a solid procedural and Hazel is a great lead. "
