Overview

Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid is back at work after an attempt on her life and a promotion into the Major Crimes Unit.When the husband of Portland, Oregon city judge Clarissa Easterbrook reports her missing and Samantha is called on the case, she assumes her only job is to make the district attorney look good until the judge turns up. When the police discover evidence of foul play, however, Samantha finds herself unearthing secrets that Clarissa had wanted to stay hidden, the lingering personal tolls of a crime that occurred decades ago. And when those secrets lead to the discovery of corruption at the highest levels of the city's power structure, Samantha realises that her quest for justice could cost her not only her job, but her life.Missing Justice, the highly suspenseful follow-up to Judgment Calls, confirms Burke's place among the genre's most talented and exciting newcomers. ?A born storyteller. Burke ? has created an attractive heroine whom I look forward to meeting again.? ? Sunday Telegraph?The author's background as a former deputy DA in Portland lends gritty ambience to this modern parable of greed and ambition.? ? Booklist

I too almost sent the book back without listening to the entire story, but I usually like Alifair Burke's writing and thought I'd stick it out. The story is not bad it's the reader who has an Australian accent . It puts you off the book and does not correspond to the location of the story. I have two other books on my list with this reader and am considering taking them off my list.

didn't like it at all

First I just could not stand to listen to the narrator. Otherwise I just do prefer Alafair's dads writing over hers. Pass on this one and you will easily find a better audiobook!

I rarely write a review, but in this case I just have to say the the narrator is bad, bad !! I am only struggling thru to the end because I really like Alafair Burke. The narrator is just distracting. Mis-pronounes words, and is just hard to listen to. I have gone back thru my requested books and taken anything narrated by her off my list.

Betty Bobbitt did a great job narrating this book. Alafair Burke spins an interesting story about a man who is framed for murder and political corruption. Apparently Burke was an ADA in Portland so she paints a realistic life of an ADA in the small details of an attorney. Lots of suspense and some court room drama, the pace moved right along. Looking forward to more books in this series.

Good read, not so good narrator

I have enjoyed both Alafair Burke's books. The narrator of this was too British and too old to make the book easy to listen to. Samanatha Kincaid is young and feisty, not reserved and "mature". The other characters sounded so out of place for Portland.
