A Good Police Crime Drama

I liked this book, especially some of the issues that were addressed. There were many issues that take place in this story and sadly within society.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I didn't really have a fovorite character. I wanted there to be a character that I was more able to identify with.

What does Eric Nutting bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Eric Nutting was a fine narrator and I look forward to more from him. Also I think that Peg Brantley is a very talented author and I will continue listening to her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to but I had to take breaks. This was a book that I'm glad I listened to but I think it could have had more plot twists with the good storyline that it did have.

Any additional comments?

I think this book is definitely worth listening to. I still enjoyed it and I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.
