This is my first audiobook. I bought it after meeting the author by happenstance and thought I would check it out.
Loved the suspense.
I feel he did a great job establishing all the characters. I thought he did an exceptional job with Jeff.
If I could have, I certainly would.
What can I say ... I am hooked. I already downloaded the next 2 in the series. :)
Okay, so I am an admitted Doc Ford fanantic. I started reading his books a couple of years ago at the library and kind of read them out of order. The first books in the series I never had a chance to read. So this book was good....But the narrator that does this book is not the caliber of the narrator of the more recent books. The story was good, but I ache for the more mature and seasoned writing style he shows in his later books. Still I don't regret getting the book, I wish he would churn out more books!
The most interesting aspect of the book was seeing Doc Ford in love with the woman in Masagua. I've met people like Doc Ford, who had a heart broken and never was able to feel this way again. The least interesting was the reappearance of Doc's childhood friend...Raif I think. That part of the book was predictable and inconsequential to the story.
mystery, characters, humor and romance
I bought this book because of Dick Hill --I will buy about anything he reads, because he is my favorite narrator. I have bought other audiobooks that are probably a good read but I have quit listening because of the boring voice of the narrator.
The narrator would be great doing some old time gumshoe novels or older characters, but it's just a touch too gravely and a whole heap of insipid when it comes to the females. The different character's voices are hard to take.
The book itself seems like it'd be interesting but I've given up on the audio and will probably read in text to save myself a headache.
I do have to wonder... Randy... when writing a love scene... "iridescent pubic hair"? Really? Oy vey. That whole "evening" was painful to hear in audio.
The rating of this book is a guess on my part. Dick Hill's narration made it impossible to give an informed opinion. I don't generally care for Mr. Hill's narration and his effort here was one of his worst.
A disappointing combination of shallow and irritating dialog and behaviour by the female character, and a correspondingly annoying delivery by the male reader. I couldn't take more than 5 minutes. Unfortunate, as the story had potential.
Save your credits for anything on Audible written and read by Stuart McBride!
I really had a hard time keeping interested in this book. The narrator did a good job, but the material was just boring to me personally. The south american guerilla stuff loses me; maybe guys like this type of book, but I found it boring.
When I started this book, I had high hopes. I winter in Ft. Myers Beach and the Sanibel area. At first I was bitterly disappointed. Not sure if it was the narrator or the story line. But by the second part, I was hooked. The ending left me smiling and hoping the 2nd book continues on.
