I really enjoyed this story. Lots of action, some intrigued and a classic whodunit. Not only that but the Royal Canadian Mounties were involved. Always had a thing for the guys in red. (now females are in their corps also) The story revolves around a female icthyologist/biologist and her environmental study and a mining company that tries to thwart her, and a helio pilot who is the hero, with a questionable past adds more intrigue to this story.
Definitely worth a credit.
Lauren Fortgang did an excellent job with the Narration.

This was a great one to listen to the author doesn’t give much away as she tells a story of who killed and why. You will have to pay close attention and you still might miss the hints of who the killer really is. Toni had me guessing almost until the end, I would make up my mind and then change it again time after time. I would have to say it isn’t my favorite book by her but it is a 5 star listen.
Toni does touch on some every day issues which made this story very believable as she spins a tale of who did it and why. The book starts off a little slow for me but before long Toni pulls me right in and hooks me. It was an audio I didn’t want to put down I just had to know why they killed. The unknown of what he was hunting about drove me crazy.
Lauren Fortgang did a wonderful job of narrating as she put the voice to each character I would have to say my favorite was Daniel Fox with his cool sexy voice as he keep his head cool which drives more than one women crazy he is a hot little number who could make you want him from one look. I enjoy how he played Cameran trying to make you stay away from him. The lake scene was outstanding as the narrator talked I could picture the scene in my mind which had me chuckling.
Toni does give a great plot which isn’t one you will see right away, she keeps you guessing as to whom and why in more ways than one. As they close in on the killer it all comes very clear which adds to the mystery. Toni gives you wonderful supporting characters I have to say I didn’t care to much for Vicki right off but she did grow on me. It was nice to see her grow and become a wonderful lady.
Cameran and Daniel don’t hit it off but you can feel the pull of these two and know things are going to get hot and heavy. Both are trying to outrun their past but in different ways, both have so much to give but neither is willing to put their heart on the line. There are some wonderful passionate scenes with some hot nights as these two dance around each other.
I totally enjoyed it as Toni gives us another site to her writing. It is a little confusing at times the author isn’t giving much away in this read but the author does come through. It is more of a mystery than a suspense I think which is well worth the listen. There hasn’t been one of Toni’s books I haven’t enjoyed she is a wonderful author who knows how to draw you in as she gives compelling reads. If you haven’t read any of her work I would start with the Cold Justice series, the audios are outstanding as she starts the story off with a bang and keeps you on the edge of your seats. All her audios are outstanding with wonderful narrators.

Had high hopes for this book at the start but they slowly drained away as the book went on. The narration by Lauren Fortgang is excellent so it disguised the issues with the writing for a while. There are so many annoying features about the characters and how the plot is developed that I struggled to finish the last four hours.
A few things that don’t give away significant spoilers include...
- Too short a timescale to develop the relationship and have the necessary ups and downs of a good plot line in a way you can buy into.
- Cam’s romantic history. Two previous fiancés? Really? Kinda makes her seem like she’ll agree to marry anyone, and her being head over heels doesn’t mean a lot.
- Someone wakes up freaking out you’d think that PTSD would cross most people’s minds and you’d give them a break. Also, expecting them to lay their soul bare when you’ve not known them long and you can’t even imagine what they’ve been through just makes you a d-head.
- The investigative skills of the authorities is more akin to the Famous Five. No, that’s giving them too much credit as those five kids would do a better job. Completely inept! Seems a bit excessive even if it is fiction.
- Sex on the mind of everyone - not in a sexy way, just a teenage boy kind of way. Should have used some of those words to develop the characters a bit more instead.
- Excessive number of points of view wrecks the flow and seems like a tool used by an author who hasn’t got the skills to develop the story and characters through one or two people’s eyes.
- Good on the author for opening people’s eyes to type 1 diabetes, but this book focused on it tooooo much. So much for them saying early on that a person isn’t defined by their diagnosis. And Daniel acting from the start like Cam can’t manage her own treatment and she’s 5 years old (way beyond being supportive and concerned), when she’s diligently controlled it for years without his involvement.
- Many other niggles too..
