Disappointing Plot & Reader
I was terribly disappointed with this Audio book because of the plot and the reader. Laurel Merlington was a bad choice to read the book she can only do young American women accents. She butchered most of the male voices, the other older woman lawyer and all the foreign accents. It's clear she has never heard a German speak. The German girl's accent was annoyingly wrong. As for the plot, from the pointless foray into mathematics to the unlikely happenings e.g. where did this unsophisticated, rather stupid shooter get money from to go to Germany and find the witnesses? Why wasn't Nina Reilly shot at the masseuse's parlor? Why would the shooter hang around a Lake Tahoe? Much of the book does not make sense. I am sorry I bought it.

Very Boring Book
This book was the most boring I have ever read. If you are a Math Major you could enjoy it. There was too much math and not enough excitement that usually is in a Nina Reilly book. I love all these books but this one was very disappointing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As a huge fan of Nina Reilly, I can't believe how disappointed I was with her latest adventure. Unless you are fascinated by math (I am not), this book bears no comparison to Nina's previous, interesting cases. I skipped numerous pages on math formulas, etc. TOO much detail! As one of my favorite heroines, I can only hope the next book returns with Nina on a case not so bogged down in subject matter that detracts from the overall story.Was this review helpful?
