review 1: I liked the element in this books--romantic suspense, serial murderer, old crimes and new, geology (earthquakes and tsunamis)--better than the book itself. Dialog a little overwrought for my taste and the book over plotted (to set up the sequel) but she does a great job building the menacing tone.

The non-final intonation of the narrator's reading of the last sentence and the lack of any concluding message from the producer left me wondering whether I'd really downloaded the entire book or was somehow missing a segment. I am sorry to give this 4-star book only 3 stars due to its painfully abrupt end. less
