Wonderful thriller, even better narrators!

What did you love best about The Halo Effect?

It truly did keep me guessing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Morgan, she was flawed, but still extremely likable.

What does Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Both narrators made the characters come to life. Both could do voices of other characters and you knew who they were with out the author naming them. I do enjoy having male and female narrators, make them more believable.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Parts did make me laugh out loud.

Any additional comments?

I enjoy almost anything that Phil Gigante does, and he and Natalie Ross truly make a great team. Its fun to have Phil depart from romance, but I hope he doesn't leave it for good!! It would break my Highland lovin heart!

Enthralling story with an excellent performance

A great story, with characters who draw you right into their story: a sex psychologist who has a complicated personal life; a high-class prostitute who is her patient and goes missing; a detective on the case and trying to stop a serial killer in his tracks; and many side characters who add to the story. I listened to it as an audiobook and could not stop listening as this thriller unraveled. The voice actors were phenomenal as well; some of the best I've heard. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, though I may take a little break, as it is a little intense, haha.
