Listener Opinions

    " A well-constructed mystery or set of mysteries told with great panache. The initial chapter involves a family very similar to the one in "Behind the Scenes at the Museum," with extraordinarily neglectful parents and delightful, spirited children, not always kind. The detective, who I gather we will encounter in future novels, is pleasantly flawed as well. "

    " The book starts off well enough with an atmospheric family portrait enduring a palpable heat wave so I thought I was in for a good read. However, after the detailed beginning, I felt like the author took the story away from me by focusing too much on the PI's personal problems/opinions/etc (which he doesn't resolve cuz he's got troubles you know) rather than on his solving of the crimes themselves (which putter along like afterthoughts until they are suddenly wrapped up at the end.) The author had too much going on, not always in the same time frame & even the strength of her character depiction suffered under the divisive narrative. I was about 2/3 thru before I realized how annoyed I was and I finished only for the sake of Olivia's story. It really deserves more like a 2.5 cuz it's not awful, just not nearly as good as it could have been. Atkinson gets a lot of press as a "literary crime writer" but I am underwhelmed. OK, rant over. "

    " When I started this one, I couldn't put it down, because the characters were so well developed in my opinion. But it was filled with WAY too much sexual content and bad language, and that's saying a lot coming from me. "

    " I liked the story and the mystery of this book quite a bit. I found it hard to put down and I didn't predict what had happened to those that were killed. However, the writing was a bit confusing and I felt that the author skipped around in an odd manor. Overall a good read. "
