The narrator does an excellent job. She acts the various parts and does so convincingly bringing more to the book than if it was just words on the page. But... I wasn't a huge fan of Cleave's first book and I wanted to give him another try since I was in the minority then. I had loved Little Bee until the last 30 pages, so I was hopeful that it was a fluke. Unfortunately, my issues with Gold started much earlier in the book. And while I like Gold better that Little Bee, I still don't buy all of the plot twists that it took to continue to throw these four people together and keep them interacting throughout the book. I don't know that real people confronted with these challenges would have acted in the same way and if they would, the story still didn't ring true. There were too many flying leaps. A Cleave fan will probably overlook these issues, in which case, listen away!
