Couldn't Make It
I love what I've read of Laura Lippman but just couldn't get into this one. As a matter of fact I'm pretty underwhelmed by the one Tess Monahan book I've downloaded as well. Sad to think Lippman is not consistent because all her books are intriguing to me but I've steered away from any of her titles since failing to make it through this one.
My biggest complaint is that the beginning is fairly difficult to follow and with audiobook that is bad news for these ears. I felt like that with the other Lippman books that I've finished but for some reason those titles hooked me before it was too late...this one did not and I moved on.

This Was Torture Listening
This was the slowest Laura Lippman book I've listened to yet. It was torture getting to the end. There was so much non-essential talking and took forever to get to one point. I like Lippman and will still listen to her, but this one is not on my list of favorites.
