The Body Reader by Anne Frasier

I can't remember where I first learned about The Body Reader by Anne Frasier... I think I may have read a review of this novel on another book blogger's website and decided to add it to my ever growing reading wishlist.

Long story short, I decided to download and listen to the unabridged audio version of The Body Reader by Anne Frasier and narrated by Emily Sutton-Smith. Listening time for The Body Reader by Anne Frasier is 8 hours, 31 minutes.

The Body Reader is the first book I've read by Anne Frasier. I enjoyed this novel, but didn't love it. The premise of this novel is really good. I liked both the overall storyline and the characters. This is a good thriller overall that provided a good source of entertainment for me, but it won't be very memorable for me in the long run. 

As a side note, the narrator, Emily Sutton-Smith, was bland as far as narrators go. I felt like she read The Body Reader way too slowly.

The following is a plot summary for The Body Reader by Anne Frasier from Audible:
For three years, Detective Jude Fontaine was kept from the outside world. Held in an underground cell, her only contact was with her sadistic captor, and reading his face was her entire existence. Learning his every line, every movement, and every flicker of thought is what kept her alive.
After her experience with isolation and torture, she is left with a fierce desire for justice - and a heightened ability to interpret the body language of both the living and the dead. Despite colleagues' doubts about her mental state, she resumes her role at Homicide. Her new partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, doesn't trust her sanity, and he has a story of his own he'd rather keep hidden. But a killer is on the loose, murdering young women, so the detectives have no choice: they must work together to catch the madman before he strikes again. And no one knows madmen like Jude Fontaine.
I am giving The Body Reader by Anne Frasier a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
