Renee did a decent job but i got used to Scott Brick's voice for Pendergast. Renee doesn't have as deep an Louisiana privileged drawl. By the end of the story it was credible. If you hadn't heard Scott Brick as Pendergast you would think it was good.
It would give away an important part but i thought the character of Staff Captain Mason was very well done as was Captain Cutter.
The first half of the story brought me in because i thought it was a great murder mystery with a great setting. Things got weird after that which is typical for a Pendergast story.
Story was OK. Narration was flat. What happen to that honey like southern accent. Pendergast ain't the same without it. Will still listen to the books. I like 90 percent of them.
Scott Brick brought amazing depth and emotion to the characters and nailed the accents. It's hard going from that to the relatively flat performance Rene. The book is still well written and a great mystery novel though.
I thought this book was an ok detour from our "normal" Pendergast novels. However, as usual the authors were able to put a great story together that started really slow, I was ready to stop listening, but picked up the pace very quickly. The climax wasn't as great as the build up but U still enjoyed the book!
I think my favorite part of this book is the descriptive journey that takes the characters to places I have never seen and likely never will see. I love to imagine the special agent and his niece on their extended voyage to mountain monastery and sea voyage. Of all the books in the series, this is the one I am most likely to read a second time. And I am hopelessly addicted to the series!
