I’m glad to say that as these Kathryn Dance novels progress, they are less and less text book, and more and more story.
This was a fantastic book, with brilliant plotting, and plenty twists and turns to keep you turning the pages, and of course you can’t beat a bit of help from the great Lincoln Rhyme.
The second in the Kathryn Dance, series this book is far less of a text book turned into a story, than I felt The Sleeping Doll was. It was also complex and compelling.
If you’re going to listen to it as an unabridged audio book however, then the pieces written as extracts from the internet and from blog posts can become highly annoying to listen to as every url, screen name, dot, hashe, and slashe get read out time after time.
I love Deavers complex storylines, and his in depth research into his subject matter, but there were far too many times when I thought this book was more like a university textbook in kinesics with a storyline thrown in to keep you reading.
