Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom Hames | 2/13/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoyed the suspense and twists and turns of this book, but what I didn't enjoy was the constant use of the "F" word. It's like the author feels like he has to come up with more creative ways to use it, even going as far as using a character with Tourette's syndrome who throws out some off the wall "F" word profanity streams. Here is a word of advice to the author from me (and yes I know that he will probably never see it): Don't use it at all! It wasn't needed anyway. The book would have been much better without the profanity. "

    " A terrific mystery - a perfect summer read. "

    " very good mystery. Should definitely read more of this author's work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy Devanney | 2/1/2014

    " Had a hard time getting into this at first, but really liked it once I did. I liked the characters and thought it was very realistic...could see this type of thing happening. Kept me hooked until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 1/27/2014

    " This author is new to me but readily available on audiobooks at my local library. So far I like the characters in this series, especially the professor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/24/2014

    " Suspenseful enough. Decent plot. Often felt as though it was written very fast with the author spitting out ideas--not exactly "crafted," in other words. Lots of inconclusive philosophizing about children and relationships. Main character a bit of a whiner without many redeeming qualities. When he asks late in the story why so many people keep believing in him, I realized that I, as reader, certainly didn't think much of him. Still, worth reading the way eating a whole bowl of butter popcorn or a whole pint of ice cream is worth it. There were also quite a few sentences with my pet peeve the misplaced modifier, such as "Having coaxed him to sit on a packing case, he watches me suspiciously." p. 271 (in ISBN: 9780739326121 Random House Large Print). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 12/30/2013

    " Book number 2 in the series. . .wanted to love it because I love when I find a new series but it just isn't happening. Might try number 3, but haven't decided yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace Shore Kassoff | 12/24/2013

    " another nancy pearl recommendation....she never steers me wrong....fast moving and smart mystery/thriller "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 11/16/2013

    " Read these books out of order: Shatter, Suspect, and then Lost. I enjoyed Lost the most because I love character of Vincent Ruiz. I liked this book because its a great character study. And Robotham writes very well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyneva | 10/27/2013

    " This is my third Robotham novel and it won't be the last. I like his style and characters and look forward to picking up the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/27/2013

    " Enjoyed this very much, but I couldn't understand why the police didn't pick up on the issue. Everyone was right, and no one put the pieces together. But this was a great story to sink into on a day too hot to be outside. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Wilt | 6/25/2013

    " Robotham is quickly becoming one of my "go to" detective mystery writers. Interesting characters and plot, consistently good prose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan May | 4/7/2013

    " Not loving this genre, I was amazed how 'lost' I became in this story. Skilful writer who provides a very satisfying finale you don't suspect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 3/21/2013

    " Intriguing and very well-written but I just didn't care much about any of the characters anything that happened to them. Meh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 12/23/2012

    " Best mystery I've "read" in a long time. The main character is a bit along the lines of Dave Robicheaus and Walt Longmeyer, only English, of course. Just a terrific story and very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deirdre S. | 7/1/2012

    " I become more and more fond of this author. The primary character in this book (Vincent Ruiz) was a secondary character in Robotham's first book (Suspect). This new perspective gives a completely different flavor (much more sympathetic) to his character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suevw | 2/16/2012

    " Great portrayal of character with a disability "

    " A "guy book" with fast-paced mystery adventure. Great entertainment! It left me ready to read more from Michael Robotham. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqui | 7/17/2011

    " Another jaunty book with the fabulously crusty Inspector Ruiz. I love the way Michael Robotham writes - it is fast, entertaining and really good crime writing. A wonderful Australian writer who is not as well known in this country as he is overseas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 4/9/2011

    " I like this author! He definitely makes you want to keep reading to see what happens! I have enjoyed the other two books from this author better than this one, but I would still recommend this one. I loved the character of DI Ruiz and his sense of humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deirdre | 3/16/2011

    " I become more and more fond of this author. The primary character in this book (Vincent Ruiz) was a secondary character in Robotham's first book (Suspect). This new perspective gives a completely different flavor (much more sympathetic) to his character. "

    " Another interesting book by Robotham in this series of British mystery psychodramas. I liked this one more than his first novel, Suspect, and plan to continue with the series. "

    " I enjoy books by this author, but this one was a little predictable for my taste. The characters are very intriguing though. I'll read more of his books just because of the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 10/29/2009

    " Best mystery I've "read" in a long time. The main character is a bit along the lines of Dave Robicheaus and Walt Longmeyer, only English, of course. Just a terrific story and very well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trspears42 | 10/12/2009

    " This is a pretty good detective novel with a little different approach: The narrator is a long-time detective searching for a kidnapped child thought to be dead, and a psychologist who is usually the protagonistin his novels is a bit player in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 10/4/2009

    " This was an excellent story - full of twists and turns. I really liked the characters.

    I also enjoyed hearing about the places in London, and the local slang! "
