Well read, decent unexpected plot twist at end. But character and cluelessness of "Work," the narrator, very frustrating. If he would be more honest with his sister or wife or lover or pal --- but no, he has to play a lone hand. Almost gave up on this story several times.
I had not been aware of John Hart before, but after listening to this book, I have a new favorite author. In the first part of the book the main character is so obnoxious I almost didn't go on. Am I ever glad I did. The author's development of the main character - and others is amazing. I didn't want to stop listening.
This was my first exposure to John Hart & I enjoyed it. I was unable to guess the killer although I tried. The mystery unfolded in ways that were unique. The ending was acceptable. Loose story components were resolved. It's a good listen
The narrator was articulate and with great intonation. The story was easy to follow, the characters entertaining and the book well written! Good twists and turns!
Let me explain... The story line is good and so is the writing. I like the narrator BUT the editing is bad. You can occasionally hear the narrator taking a drink, taking a breath etc. Hope that other books are edited better.
The story held my interest throughout the book. First time I listened to a John Hart book and would say he is s good writer. The narrator performed the story well with lots of character.
The story concept was actually pretty engaging . Although, the overuse of trite expressions and analogies really bogged down the flow, at least for me. The main character, Work Pickins, was bland and spent a lot of time whining. Several times I actually said to my iPod, "Come on, get out of your freakin' vehicle and have some balls!"
Was a good read from beginning to end. Enough going on to keep wanting to read more. Well writen and
