Great mystery. I got it all wrong when trying to figure out who the culprit was.

I had high hopes of this when I started listening and it bore up fairly well most of the way, but a mediocre turn by the narrator and some pretty cliché-ridden writing/dialogue ultimately sunk the experience for me. Considering it at the end, I realize the writer is better with the mystery than she is with the romance. The thing is, when you are reading a story with somewhat heightened drama and romantic suspense, you expect the writer to tie things up fairly neatly at the end, which doesn’t happen here. Virtue triumphs, etc. (I expect no such thing from grittier tomes, but this was not one of those.) Spoiler alert: a rather nasty rapist goes unexposed and relatively unpunished, and the title character is whereabouts unknown at the end. Perhaps the author is imagining a sequel? I’m pretty sure I won’t be reading it. Oh, and the narrator? Too much acting in the narration portions. Decent accents, but some words mispronounced. Do these things get directed anymore?
