Another good mystery by Lisa Scottoline on audiobook. Only drawback was the constant repeating of the main character's thoughts which got in the way sometimes because there were too many of them (same ones repeated).

I really enjoyed this book. Can't wait to read another by her.

Scottoline is a solid and consistent author. I have read 17 of her books and have never been disappointed. This one was no exception. 7 of 10 for me.

Missed her usual characters

I like her usual stories, but found this one nowhere near as good. It seemed to drag, was too pro-US forces, emotions felt overwrought. I listened to the first couple of cds, a couple of bits in the middle, and the last one. The last cd was fine though. I don't think I missed anything but the predictable in skipping the middle cds.

In this novel Scottoline's main character is a man, a bit of a departure for her. Mike Scanlan is a podiatrist that served as an army doctor in Afghanistan. Leaving behind his wife Chloe and newborn daughter Emily, he has committed himself to his task. But when a tragedy happens back home, he finds that his wife didn't handle his absence well, and when he finally returns home, a hero, he has trouble adjusting to his new reality and finds himself struggling between learning the truth about what happened back home and doing what is best for his daughter.
This book tackles the issues of returning vets from PTSD to physical losses, from the differing reactions of those at home to how they feel about what they have been through, from pride in the work they did to guilt over those they left behind. Gripping and suspenseful, this book is another winner.
