    Raised by loving adoptive parents, San Francisco private investigator Wyatt Hunt never had an interest in finding his birth family-until he gets a chilling text message from an unknown number: "How did ur mother die?"

    Philo-sophia says: "An okay read"

    What didn???t you like about Eric Dawe???s performance?

    The narrator does a very poor job with voices. He is equally poor with doing male and female voices. Every time he varied his normal voice it was done poorly enough to be intrusive. I wouldn't get another book with this narrator.

    Scotland Yard’s new chief inspector Nicholas Drummond is on the first flight to New York when he learns his colleague, Elaine York, the "minder" of the Crown Jewels for the "Jewel of the Lion" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was found murdered. Then the centerpiece of the exhibit, the infamous Koh-i-Noor Diamond, is stolen from the Queen Mother’s crown. Drummond, American-born but raised in the UK, is a dark, dangerous, fast-rising star in the Yard who never backs down. And this case is no exception.

    Ronda says: "A very good beginning for a new series!"
    "Terrible narration."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A normal narration style.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The breathy, gushing delivery distracted from the story to the point that I couldn't listen to this book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointing. I might not have enjoyed this book in any case but I'll never know.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was so bad that I can't tell if I might have enjoyed this book.

    What disappointed you about Dangerous Women?

    Dangerous can be thrilling or intriguing. This book was boring and yet creepy. Who is the intended audience? Men with adolescent fantasies? These are warped women who were NOT my pleasure to know.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Dull delivery across the board.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None

    In A Deeper Sleep, P.I. Kate Shugak has been working on a case for the Anchorage D.A. involving the murder of a woman by the woman's husband. Louis Deem has been the subject of investigations before, and he's never been convicted. But Kate and state trooper Jim Chopin are convinced that, this time, he'll be punished for his actions. When he's found not guilty, Kate and Jim and the rest of Nilniltna, Alaska, are certain that a man has gotten away with murder.

    Tracey says: "You will be WIDE AWAKE during "A Deeper Sleep""
    "Same great writing but suffers from new narrator."

    Story
    Would you listen to A Deeper Sleep again? Why?

    Yes. I love the writing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Vivid detail makes you feel like you know these characters personally. Alaska is as much a character as any of the people. It's fun to see the developing relationships in Kate's life.


    What didn’t you like about Bernadette Dunne’s performance?

    She should have listened to at least one of the previous books. She does a mediocre job with the voices and intonation. She's not horrible but the change in narration was continually intrusive throughout the book -not just at the beginning. Not a lot of variation in the voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Dana's books always make me laugh and cry.
