I'm not sure where I read about comparisons to Hiaasen...but this sophomoric tale doesn't make it. I realise that the protagonist is supposed to be quite young and, to that extent, the narrator does a good job. But it's all too 'gee whiz' for me. I read (and listen) to a lot of crime fiction and enjoy many different styles including the humourous and offbeat. But I was very disappointed in this book.
I've downloaded close to 100 books from Audible and this has to be one of my top 5 favorites.
A great story and a wonderful lead character.
The reader was also excellent. He handled dialogue from a range of characters with great versatility. Even his recreation of the occasional sound was a plus and not an intrusion.
I'll look for more books from the author and the narrator.
If Scott Brick were a film actor, he would fire his agent for getting him this role.
I found this shallow and un-involving. I just couldn't figure out who these people were and gave up caring.
For this genre, I feel the Vince Flynn books are 10 times better.
This is the 3rd Andy Carpenter book that I have listened to. I wish there were more available.
The narrator does a great job and 'is' the character.
