Reviews

Four stars for the story, but...


(2 stars)

The story was interesting enough to keep me listening anyway, but Kilmer's reading was just weird, with innumerable & ackwardly-placed pauses and a bizarre cadence.

refreshing mystery!


(5 stars)

wonderfully written and very well read. Almost had me rooting for the bad guy :)

Just the right complexity


(4 stars)

This is an enjoyable mystery, with a good number of plot twists, but not so many that you can't keep track of all the characters or the story. I can't say I was entirely surprised by all of them, but it wasn't so predictable as to be boring either. Overall, a competent storytelling that does not demand too much from the reader.

VIVA L'INVINCIBLE

Until the final sentence I still was not sure who was real and who was not. You will surely enjoy this one. Thanks to RK for another fine read.
