I absolutely love the Agent Pendergast series! I hope Audible adds the rest of these great books to their line up. This is a great mystery that I had a hard time turning off, because I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that Rene Auberjonois's voice for Agent Pendergast is so perfect that every other narrator's attempt to capture his voice pales in comparison. Plus, his voice for Bill Smithback is a touch on the annoying side. But these things are so minor that they do not detract from the great story at all!
After listening to this, I felt like I wanted to take a 6 hour shower to rinse the filth off. This book is icky and, at times, I cringed and even caught myself saying out loud, "Oh ewww..." once or twice. BUT, the information in the book would definitely give one the knowledge to avoid being a "victim" or "prey" (the authors words!) for a seducer. Forewarned is forearmed.
The quality of the actual audiobook is good. I didn't mind the narrator, although I can see how others might. The tone he uses in the preview is the tone he uses for the entire book. It does move at a nice pace. I did actually like the historical examples and the fact this book is not geared to just men. If a woman were looking for how to be a seductress, there is plenty here.
