I liked this story, but it seemed a little bland. Perhaps I don;t like abridged stories. I have not read other fairstein, so I shall have to compare. It was an interesting enough story, but it seemed to lack tension. I tend to try to buy unabridged, because I figure if the story can be cut without damage, then maybe it is not as good as it could be.

Fairstein is just great, if you like Patricia Cornwell, Elizabeth George etc you will just love Fairstein. Keeps the suspense going from beginning to end.

What made the experience of listening to Cold Hit the most enjoyable?
I was looking forward to a Linda Fairstein book on audio. And although this one was an abridged version, which is never as satisfactory, it held up well apart from the narration. Overall the narration was alright, however the start was obscured very slightly by some music. It only lasted a short while but was un-necessary and highly annoying. And although I had no major issues with the narrator, the narration also felt rushed at time.
What other book might you compare Cold Hit to, and why?
In a similar vein to Kathy Reichs crime novels simply because of personal knowledge by the author of the subject matter, and both sets of novels contain a strong female lead. If you like one, I suspect you might like the other.
Have you listened to any of Allison Janney’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Never listened to this narrator before, and found she was clear in tone, and managed to put in good inflections to separate the books various characters. Just a shame the narrative felt so rushed at times.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
