Disappointed

I found this book disappointing. Listening to Vicki just really annoyed me. Her story just went on and on and she started to irritate me to the point that I kept skipping over her section. I enjoyed listening to Scarlet and wished it had been just about her.

"Ex" This One Off Your List....

If you were wondering if it was possible to pen a dull story about an ex-wife suspected of being involved in her former husband's mysterious disappearance.....it is very, very possible. And this "Ex" book is Exhibit "A".

True confession: I have a weakness for wife-kills-husband/husband-kills-wife books. This being said, I had seen the pre-publicity press for this title and ordered it immediately before the book had any Audible reviews.. How could a book with such a great plot be bad??? Well...... I made it through 2 hours of the book before I refused to let it waste any more of my time. The book is slow, dull, repetitive and a huge disappointment.

The narrator reading Scarlett's lines is very irritating and, quite frankly, she gave me a headache.

There are so many great reads on Audible. Don't waste your credit on this one.

Enjoyed

I enjoyed listing to this book, The Dead Ex. There were many twists and turns. There are some slower points, but I wanted to find out who these people are and how they all connect with each other.

The one item that I did not like was the voice used for Vickys thoughts. Why was a computerized male voice used for this part. Very distracting and odd. Thank goodness not many of these were in the story.

The story was a bit easy to figure out, yet there were a few surprises toward the end.

Excellent

I was hooked from the first chapter. Great book with lots of suspense and plenty to keep you interested. Much better then the last Jane Corry book I read. The narration was also very good. I would definitely recommend.

A suspense thriller with all the right ingredients

This book had me gripped right from the start, there were no dead patches and towards the end the surprises just kept on coming.
The story evolves from the perspectives of two separate people over the years from 2007. Vicki who's ex-husband DAVID has gone missing with evidence that she might have had something to do with it, and Scarlett an 8 year old who is moving between foster homes. I listened intrigued, wondering how these threads would eventually come together.
The writing was superb, I could visualise all the scenes in my mind with very little effort and the time I spent listening just seemed to fly by. Great performance by the two narrators.
