Publisher's Summary

Ambitious, brilliant, and beautiful, Alex Sontheim is the star of Wall Street - and she knows it. So when Levy Manhattan Investments taps her to take their firm to the next level, she can name her price - but she may be getting in over her head.
Preoccupied by her steamy relationship with handsome real-estate mogul Sergio Vitali, Alex is blind to the reality that behind LMI’s glittering facade is a dangerous criminal cartel - and it expects more than just top-notch work and discretion. Desperate to put an end to this organized crime, New York’s crusading mayor needs someone on the inside, and no one is in deeper than Alex. But to bring her new employer to justice, Alex will have to risk more than just her job and her reputation - she’ll risk her life.

Hated it!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I really enjoyed Snow White Must Die and bought this book because I thought it was a mystery too with same detectives as Snow White. I didn't read closely! I hate writers who create a supposedly brilliant woman who is so stupid when it comes to relationships with men! I haven't finished book and I will because it cost me a credit, but I can't believe the writer has a character refer to Sergio's rape of Alex as a faux pas!! Please!! And the narrator's voice is bad. She is terrible doing those different accents and men' s voices. Just read the damn book and forget female, male voices and accents!

Would you ever listen to anything by Nele Neuhaus and Christine M. Grimm (translator) again?

Yes, because I did like Snow White Must Die. The plot line of Swimming is not bad. The narrators voice and other elements of book are just maddening.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She did really bad men's voices and the accents were horrible. Her Alex was ok, but I couldn't tell what she was trying to do with the Mayor and his wife and their accents!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Swimming with Sharks?

Haven't read all of it. Just disgusted with myself for not reading book summary and reviews, as I usually do when I purchase a book.

Oh, please!

Would you try another book from Nele Neuhaus and Christine M. Grimm (translator) and/or Justine Eyre?

This was my second book by Nele Neuhaus, so I was ready to try this time. Not again.

What was most disappointing about Nele Neuhaus and Christine M. Grimm (translator) ’s story?

It's not really a mystery. There should be a category for Romantic Mysteries, so you have a better idea of what you're getting.

What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?

She's a bit rushed, and her interpretation of men's voices sounds like caricature

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Swimming with Sharks?

Most of them.
