The story is great, as most Cornwell books, but the narrator makes me feel as though she believes I am either a small child or have an IQ under 60. She speaks VERY slowly and deliberately, pausing in odd places, and seems to think that commas need long pauses, periods longer, and chapter breaks a long dead air space. It detracts considerably from the story and is hard to listen to.
I like the "short story" type format, good for an hour or so of listening, and possible to come back to a week or more later without having lost the "story line". Very interesting, thought-provoking studies.
That said, what's with the weird little random musical interludes? I'm guessing it's to add variety to the reader's somewhat stilted style, but I find the music annoying.
Jeff Lindsey is an excellent writer, and should stick to that. He brings little to the story in the way of character interpretation and should leave the reading to someone else. The story is good, though Dexter seems awfully dense when it comes to figuring things out. It needs more of Dexters darker side, something Lindsey does well. While I enjoy the Dexter books, I won't be getting any more that Lindsey reads.
