I have my favourite crime authors (Lehane, Coben, Crais, Connelly) but had exhausted all their books and was desperate to find a new author to enjoy. Step forward, Richard Montanari!
I actually listened to the third book in the series before listening to this, the first in the series. Like his other books, this moves along at a cracking pace with a couple of nice sub-plots and chock-ful of likely suspects. Never yet guessed the perp before the denouement, though. Always the sign of a good author!
And the two main characters are very well-rounded and their personalities develop with each book
If I have any criticism, it is that all his villains are always devilishly clever which gets a little formulaic after you've read several books.
However, that apart, I strongly recommend this book to all fans of Amercian crime fiction. His latest is already on my wishlist
Richard Montanari has a talent for exceptional character developement. His writing flows like poetry. Although the plot is not unique... "Cops look for weirdo", I could not stop listening till the very end because of the extremely well written story. The reader adds to excellent entertainment by brilliantly "acting" the story rather than just reading it. If you like insite into characters as well as good prose, don't miss this one.

This is perhaps my favorite audiobook so far. It has a complex plot, likeable characters, and offers great insight into the mind of a serial killer. The last two hours are unequaled in suspense. It's been a long time since I've been frightened by a book; this one does the job in aces. Also, once again, Scott Brick rules! It's as if he is living the book as he reads it. The Rosary Girls couldn't be better.
