Nick Sullivan is a good narrator, but Will Patton and Mark Hammer bring Dave Robicheaux to life with their great Cajun dialect.
Made it halfway through the first part of the book and pushing myself to finish. The narrator is just not the one for a Baldacci book. Will try to finish it. Fortunately, I never read/listened to the original release so hope it gets better.
As a fan of James Lee Burke, I am enjoying Alafair's Burke first novel. The narrator does a decent job then suddenly projects a harsh Brooklyn accent although the story is set in Oregon. Overall, I am pleased with Alafair's book. It is hard not to visualize her as the "Alafair" in the Dave Robicheaux series.
Of the thousands of mystery/suspense books I've read or listened to, this is the absolute best! Won't spoil it for you but this is definitely my favorite!
Whlie the narrator does a good job, I don't understand why someone with a distinctly British/Canadian accent would be selected to read a story with primarily American characters. Hearing "schedule" pronounced as "shedule" was only one of the many things that disconcerted me with the narration. It's like listening to Gone With The Wind read by someone with a heavy Boston accent.
Have been an Audible listener for 10 years and this is the worst narrator ever. Nasal and boring! Thankfully, I read most of Tom Clancy's books years ago so I won't have to hear him again. After only 20 minutes, I'm ready to skip to another book. :(
Became a Dean Koontz fan again after reading the "Odd Thomas" series, but "Relentless" gives me cause to reconsider. Great action & character development but felt as if Koontz decided he had enough pages and just wrapped the manuscript up as fast as he could. Would have liked to follow these characters further but didn't get the opportunity.
