Doesn't know Detroit
The reader's mispronunciation of several Detroit area names is very distracting if you are familiar with the area: "Gratiot" should be pronounced "GRASH-ut", not "GRATHio". And it's "E-corse", not "e-CORSE", and "maCOMB" county, not "MAYcom". He also often puts emphasis in the wrong places in sentences.
The book itself often diverges into huge amounts of largely irrelevant detail, especially distracting when listening.
Unlike many detective novels, the cases here seem very real. Rather than uncovering huge organized crime syndicates and such, our #1 lady detective deals with a series of interesting yet mostly simple cases, relying on her knowledge of human nature instead of forensics. It is charming and funny, and a great listen while driving.
Bad news--it was too short. Good news--it's the first of a series!
