I'm not sure what I disliked more about this book...the improbable twists of the plotline, which make it hard to follow and believe; or the audio performance by Sandra Burr, who has so much trouble trying to make believable different voices for the various book characters that I became frustrated and distracted, and not able to focus on the actual book itself. I also grew bored and found my mind wandering, then wondering what I missed. I'm guessing that someone who likes a mild, tamer murder mystery will like this book. Just not my cup of tea.
Great intriguing read -- much action; interesting characters! Hard to put down; with so many twists & turns - non-stop suspense!! What will or can happen next??
Carolyn is a probation officer who works with depraved criminals. Her brother finds his girlfriend dead in his swimming pool and he has an alibi until the alibi backs out of it. The key to this is a killer already jailed and only Carolyn can get to the truth.
Second (2nd) in the "Sullivan Series", this is an entertaining legal thriller about a Ventura County Probation Officer. Rosenberg is great at fast paced, adrenaline rush type plots, dialogue and characters. The story line keeps you guessing and the characters are interesting...all in all a very decent read that will keep you skipping TV until you reach the end.
Her work for the Ventura County Probation Department brings Carolyn Sullivan face to face with the most depraved criminals, and serial killer Raphael Moreno is at the top of the list. But things get even darker when a single phone call propels her into a nightmare.
Carolyn Sullivan is a probation officer who has an uncanny knack of getting criminals to talk. Because of this skill, she is given the task of interviewing Raphael Moreno, a convicted criminal, who hasn't spoken a word since he was arrested. In the meantime, Carolyn's artist (and druggie) brother Neil discovers the body of his girlfriend floating in his swimming pool, who was killed while Neil was having sex with another girlfriend. Yup, it gets twisted even more from there on.
This book is a pretty good read and the real action starts during the last couple of chapters. Following all of the involved parties can be difficult, so you'll want to pay attention. In the end, it all comes out in the wash...uhhh...ocean.
