This is an easy listen. The narrator's voice is perfect for this book. There's nice character development on the part of both characters and plenty of heat.

Good story... but dragged

The premise was interesting but I was frustrated because one simple question or comment could have clarified things. instead, it took the characters half of the book to figure things out. There was a mystery in the second half but the book would have been stronger had plot arcs been interwtined. Still, it's Lyndsay Sands and the book had its moments. Strong narration.

The first few books of this series relied heavily on one formula and made the books good but predictable with similar resolutions. This book was fresh with a strong heroine who drove the plot. Excellent. The epilogue had its momenta of humour. Lyndsay Sands is back to writing originally.

A fantastic addition to the series

The author expertly wove history, politics and murder into the plot. There's.intrigue and mystery and real justice at the end. Billy Boyle is a street smart detective who gets his man one way or the other.

Excellente histoire

Il y a des moments triste et beaucoup de moments drôles. C'est une histoire très française avec des caratères réalistes. Je suits maintenant fan de Marie Bareilles.

Great book for those who don't want to burn out

The authors provide specific steps and actions to take to maintain high performance without burning out. It's eye opening to see how some precepts we hold as true to be completely unsupported by science. Listen to all of the book if you're willing to take your game to the next level.

Gritty with dark humour

This book is based on real life events. Theres a jaded tone to the book, one that all cops have. There are horrific cases and stunning cases. all told matter of factly. It's not for the faint of heart but we'll worth the listen.

An excellent addition to the series. it's fascinating to listen to another geopolitical dynamic to WWII. Always has a touch of humour and the thread of a love story with Diana. Real characters that show the multiple aides of the Irish conflict.

This is such a terrific and infuriating story. it's terrific to see the little guy win and it's infuriating to read.aboyt the grind and suffering and illness and sacrifice that was needed to have justice. it's eye opening to see how the author's law firm and family stood by the author for decades. It's maddening to hear all of the legal shenningans and lies and distortions DuPont did to squirm out of accepting responsibility. it's well worth the listen. straight and matter of fact with some key legal insights and some important testimonies from those directly impacted.

Each story makes you think. The prose is crisp and there is always some aspect of the story that drives home a deeper truth. The narrator was excellent and had a broad range of voices.
