    After the murder of a teenage girl, a mysterious man in a black leather jacket was seen lurking near the crime scene. Investigative reporter Tessa Novak has him in her sights as the culprit. That man was Julian Darcangelo, an undercover FBI agent working with the Denver police. He's closing in on the trail of a human trafficker and killer. Tessa's accusations could blow his cover, and he wants her off the investigation. But just as Tessa has made Julian a target of interest, she is now a target of the killer.

    Story

    The last audiobook I listened to in its entirety was in 1988, as I process the written word better than I do the spoken word. I read the the currently available I-Team books last year, and have followed the publishing progress of the audio books closely. After listening to the samples of the talented Kaleo Griffith I decided upon the second book in the series mainly because I was most interested in how he voiced Julian Darcangelo. I was extremely pleased with his interpretation of Julian and the rest of the characters. If I were to be critical, my least favorite "voice" would be that of Tessa's. The Southern U.S. dialect is a tricky one for me. Kaleo's delivery did not irritate me at all, but I didn't look forward to hearing Tessa the way I did the other characters. I read the book in June 2012 and as with all of Pamela Clare's current works I appreciated each aspect of it. After listening to samples of some of my favorite "reads" I didn't find another narrator who I wanted to start out with more than Mr. Griffith. His narrative voice is so clear, rich, and resonant; his cadence was perfect. I've read some reviews in which listeners felt the need to increase the speed of the audiobook; that was NOT an issue with this book at all. I thought Kaleo handled the stammers, pauses, and character changes beautifully! Also, being that these I-Team books are steamy as well as suspenseful, I *really* appreciated his handling of the racier parts of the book. Oh yeah, VERY nice! Overall, I was SO pleased with this first real audiobook experience that I have already bought books 1,3, and 4. I'm sure I'll have 5 and 5.5 before too much longer. I think I'll always prefer reading, but with proven reads being narrated by such talented artists as Kaleo Griffith, I think it's safe to admit that I shall end up selectively enthusiastic over audiobooks as well.
