One of the best books I have read in a long time. Very suspenseful and welll executed. This would make a great movie.
This book should be called, "Rasbach says." Good god, that gets said a lot. The dialogue gets kind of clunky and hard to listen to. The third person perspective might not be the most effective choice for this story. All in all, it feels vaguely thrilling but not immensely suspenseful.
Audiobook was engaging, really didn't care for narrators "attitude". She always seemed to be "snarky" which was not necessary. The whodunnit style book was good and kept us engaged. A bit predictable, though. The last 10 minutes (or ending) was a bit unnecessary and left us both saying that we didn't like how it ended.
