Le recensioni dei clienti, comprese le valutazioni a stelle dei prodotti, aiutano i clienti ad avere maggiori informazioni sul prodotto e a decidere se è il prodotto giusto per loro.
Per calcolare la valutazione complessiva e la ripartizione percentuale per stella, non usiamo una media semplice. Piuttosto, il nostro sistema considera cose come quanto è recente una recensione e se il recensore ha acquistato l'articolo su Amazon. Ha inoltre analizzato le recensioni per verificarne l'affidabilità.
I discovered this series last year, and each novel has delivered a suspenseful case and enjoyable interaction between the detectives. I have enjoyed getting to know them professionally and personally.
The series takes place in New Mexico. We find Gabriel Kensington and his wife Lydia brutally murdered after Gabriel’s sister receives a frantic phone call from her niece. It turns out Addis and her friend Emerson have been kidnapped by the killer.
Cox knows how to write a compelling mystery. She turns up the suspense as we gather clues and piece together threads. There are plenty of red herrings and twists to keep the reader guessing.
The story delivered POVs from Detective Wyatt and from Addis as she and her friend find themselves trapped in a cabin deep in the woods.
I quickly found myself caught up in the mystery, biting my nails for the girls and methodically piecing together clues before the author lets the reader in on key details. I grew anxious waiting for the detectives to connect the dots.
I will say the author threw in some twists that made my jaw drop, but the plot was solid and once revealed I saw all the puzzle pieces click into place.
I so wanted to award the 5 stars for this book as I do enjoy the authors descriptive accounts of the murder scene and subsequent chasing down of the bad guys, but as thankfully I have never witnessed that type of carnage I take the author at her word, however where I do have some knowledge is in the interactions between coworkers and I’m afraid here she gets it sooooo wrong, when Cord’s pregnant wife is taken to the hospital no way would the rest of his colleagues what to “ storm “ the emergency room in support. When once again one of Alyssa’s children is dragged into the story would all her colleagues “ nibble lips in frustration, or growl in anger that they “ could and should have stopped whatever has happened, it’s just a real annoyance for me leaving me rolling my eyes in frustration that a really good book has been let down by this fairly big flaw.
I thought this was an extremely well written book with great and engrossing storytelling. The characters, specially the main ones, were well developed; they really came to life and their interactions and dialogue seemed authentic. This is the type of story I can easily picture being a movie or series. My only criticism, and it's a biggie, is that the Alex reveal was very obvious. That doesn't always ruin a story for me but in this case it did because it was so very early on in the story that I figured it out. Partly because of obvious clues and partly because I've read this reveal in other crime novels; it's a bit stale and so it was disappointing that the author wasn't more clever in that regard.
I'm not sure why; maybe because the names/roles seemed similar as there really weren't all that many of them, but I had trouble keeping the characters in this story straight. However, despite my problems (dyslexia???) it turned out to be a pretty decent story. If I had a complaint it would be that the author apparently had trouble wrapping it all up at the end. We had a nice little surprise reveal of the true villain then trekked back over the same ground several times to tie up all the loose ends. By the time we hit the last one this reader was thinking "about time" rather than "good story!!"
