Jeffery Deaver is a good writer, of that I have no doubt...BUT... I could not listen to this reader at all.... the soft soft monotone is soooo soothing that it forced me, for the first time ever, to give up on a book in the first three chapters. A friend has told me the story is pretty good...but listen to the sample to make sure you can handle the ""voice"" though.
A sucker for the irish brogue, I have enjoyed this book immensely. As an avid reader of all things thriller/mystery/suspense... this one gets top grade for keeping you engaged and suprised.
The reader is skilled and adept.
First read of this author for me and definately not the last. Not just another Kurt Vonnegut wannabe, a genuine new (to me anyway) comedic voice... laughed alot and would recommend you give it a whirl...remember though it might be tough sledding the first few chapters til he hooks you!!!
