Cold Cold Heart is written by Tami Hoag, narrated by Julia Whelan, 12 hrs and 25 minutes in length, and Book 5 of the Kovac and Liska Series.
First, if you’re looking for a Kovac/Liska police procedural – those two characters are way, way on the outside of peripheral, barely mentioned. That said …
Cold Cold Heart begins with a thrills/chills page-turning kidnapping … the opening is a gripping scene of terror. The author does a fine job conveying the ramifications of traumatic brain injury and PTSD from the viewpoint of the victim. Nicely done and a true insight.
You may have trouble not grating your teeth with the male voice interpretations by Julia Whelan … not good, in my opinion. This book would have been better, I think, if narrated by a man … maybe Dick Hill or Scott Brick. Just my opinion, you may like.
Typical Tami Hoag .. 85% good who-done-it mystery with a few nice twists – the rest a bit eye rolling requisite romance come-hither you may fast-forward through.
