This is a well-paced and seriously suspenseful mystery . The plot is somewhat contrived with some highly unlikely actions, mostly involving Ellie finding
herself in places and situations that in reality would never occur, but nothing that a little suspension of disbelief doesn't remedy.
The characters are well developed and interesting. Nan McNamara gives them distinct and appropriate voices. It's a good match of narrator with story. I
like this series.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Would you listen to A Picture of Guilt again? Why?
Yes! It was interesting, involving, with just the right amount of twists and turns to hold my interest. The story was well-written, and the narration brought it to life.
Which scene was your favorite?
I really enjoy Ellie interacting with her father.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The scene between Ellie and her daughter at the police station.
Any additional comments?
This is another look into the life of Ellie Foreman, free-lance documentary producer, and her family, as Ellie once again is pulled, inadvertently, into a series of strange and frightening situations as she attempts to help prove the innocence of a man accused of murder. Her well intentioned involvement repeatedly puts her into danger. While she's busy trying to do the right thing, her 13-year-old daughter is hitting teenaged rebellion, complicating Ellie's life. In the end, Ellie's perseverance and cleverness saves the day and many lives.
This was a very enjoyable listen. Nan McNamara's narration brought all the characters to life. If I have any complaints about her work, it's that while the story takes place in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, Ms. McNamara isn't from there. At times, she mispronounces street names. She's also not Jewish, and that, at times, shows in her pronunciation of Yiddish words Those are minor complaints.
I really enjoyed listening to this. I have spent much time in the Chicago area and can envision many of the places in which this story takes place. That always helps make it more real.
I enjoyed listening to this book so much that I bought several others by Ms. Hellmann, and I look forward to listening to them in the future.
I received this book as a gift from the author. Her generosity in no way influenced my opinions on this audio book.
