    After "You've been Warned" I needed Patterson to redeem himself. He did. In my opinion this is the second best of the WMC series behind only 4th of July. The way he keeps changing the WMC characters but keeps it working for me is incredible. Reading one of the mainstays dies is not what you expect, but here, in this story, it worked. Good stuff

    Gosh! I did not expect to have one of the hero's killed in this book. I had started off with the newer books in the series and via got the 1 and 2 issue now this third book. I just realized that the members of the club are not the same in the beginning of the series as is in the later books. Boy am I observant! Enjoyed the book and the travel about the bay area via the story.

    This is a great series of books for light listening. Great stroy lines and excellent reader. This is a hard one because you lose one of the favorite characters in the book but it is a well written book and great to listen to. It will hold your interest for sure.

    Well thanks to Jean, as soon as one of the main characters went missing, I knew she was dead. Putting that aside, great book! Love this series.

    Good story line as always. However the narrator was subpar. I wish they would have completely left out the sound effects and music behind the narration, it was unnecessary and distracting


    Love this series!

    Great book I was sorry to see it end Greg meadows

    The book was outstanding but I could have done without the sound affects which were annoying and distracting. The narrator could have been good had she not tried to make up accents and change voices for each chars Ted. It was not realistic .

    I agree with others that the narrator is annoying to the point of ruining this book...I couldn't stand listening to her ridiculous accents and idiotic intonations. I will certainly never listen to a book again if she is the narrator.
