Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have already recommended it. I think the story is wonderfully written and performed. This is a case I hadn't heard of and was surprised at how much interest it held.

What other book might you compare Missing Beauty to and why?

I am not sure I have a comparison. I am a big fan of Dateline & 48 Hours Mystery and this was right up that alley.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorites were any time the Doctor was interviewed or spoke. I could just feel his deceipt.

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

It was. There were also good stopping points, so I didn't feel like I had to.
