This was an interesting police procedural, but it didn't grip me as it did others. Even though most of the loose ends were cleverly tied together, there were a few holes in the story, and certain events and outcomes seemed unrealistic. For those prone to pondering philosophical questions (e.g., how far might I go to protect my child? Do the ends sometimes justify the ruthless means?), there's plenty of fodder here for deliberation.
The premise of this novel hooked me from the start. This is the first of Gardner's novels that I've read, and I'll definitely read more. Detective D.D. Warren is tough but also believable, and I enjoy her tough language. The story line was suspenseful and kept me guessing. I found it inventive but not entirely believable at times. The narrator of this audiobook was quite good.
The audio version is a bit slow to start but once u are in it it is hard to not listen to see what happens next.
The mystery kept me guessing for most of the dics.
