Do not bother...

What would have made The Murderer's Daughter better?

I don't think anything could have saved this book, other than not writing it, in the first place.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jonathan Kellerman again?

I do not believe Jonathon Kellerman wrote this book. It was trite, shallow and made no sense to me. I could not finish this book.

How could the performance have been better?

The female leads voice was so depressing.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no.

Any additional comments?

I am still a fan of Alex Delaware books and look forward to the next installment in the series.

Disappointing

Should be named diary of a schizophrenic. It started good but main character had no interaction with supposed villain. It seemed all about her and you kept waiting for something that could be plausible

Different

I love Jonathan Kellerman books. This one had potential, but it is overly complicated. Some people have 3-4 names, and with a host of other characters it is difficult to keep track. Usually I don't mind the wandering into psychology theory, but it bugged me this time, because it seemed to have nothing to do with the story. The protagonist is not likable.

What's the point of fiction?

Would you try another book from Jonathan Kellerman and/or Kathe Mazur?

Absolutely Not!

What could Jonathan Kellerman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Since this is the lowest quality fiction I have ever read I think maybe Mr. Kellerman could have improved this book by going back to his college fiction class. The point of fiction is to merge the realms of shocking realism with imagination. This book certainly has the imagination part, but so could any novel unconstrained by the bounds of reality. The hallow interactions between characters, the utter lack of realistic emotion, and an omnipotent protagonist made me feel the emotion of anger more penitently then the sum total of all the emotions captured in this whole book, or at least the gagging 6 hours of it I made it through.

Have you listened to any of Kathe Mazur’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I thought that her performance was the only saving grace of this audio book.

What character would you cut from The Murderer's Daughter?

Grace. Of course without a main character there isn't really a book; which is my point. With a protagonist like Ms. Grace Blades there is no need for a book.
