    Unemployed at 29, Tess Monaghan is willing to take any freelance job to pay the rent - including a bit of unorthodox snooping for her rowing buddy, Darryl "Rock" Paxton. In a city where someone is murdered almost every day, attorney Michael Abramowitz's death should be just another statistic. But the slain lawyer's notoriety - and his noontime trysts with Rock's fiancée - make the case front page news...and point to Rock as the likely murderer.

    Hard to get into. I am having a hard time listening to this, she just seems to jump around and not get to the point. I haven't completed listening because of this.

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

    that the main character didn't whine throughout the whole book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    the perofrmance was good. the reader was excellant. he just didn't have a lot to work with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Private: #1 Suspect?

    the main character whining over his lost love and what he was going to do to get out of the mess he was in.


    Any additional comments?

    it just didn't flow well.

    When the body of controversial talk-show host Walton Weeks is discovered hanging from a tree on the outskirts of Paradise, police chief Jesse Stone finds himself at the center of a highly public case. When another dead body, that of a young woman, is discovered just a few days later, the pressure to solve the crimes becomes almost unbearable.

    Overall

    This story was OK, not great. But the worst part is the narration. I got so tired of hearing "jesse said" or "suitcase said" or "whoever said". When they change character and usually the voice quality, i think that we listeners can figure out who is speaking withouth the SAID for each sentance.
