This was my first listen from this author and this reader. The book and plot were engaging. The reader made this listen very enjoyable.
The mix of drama and humor was this book's draw. I recommend this to anyone that truely enjoys well read comedy/drama based lawyer/police fiction.
I love mysteries that put a little personal life in so the characters aren't so stiff, Tara the dog, and that he treats her better then most people he knows was great. His ying/yang on his love life. The mystery wasn't bad also.
Aside from being a ridiculous premise, the story folds out well and is very entertaining. If you listen based on the fact that you can believe that an entire city can of 5,000 people can remain in a secret cult and only a couple have ever escaped or left, then you'll do fine.
Notwitstanding, the story was well written a a good listen. The narrator did a fine job.
This is a terrific "beach read" with a great narrator, interesting characters and a good plot. It made me laugh out loud at times. For an enjoyable escape, pick this one.
