The premise was an interesting one, but the narration was so poor I gave up on the book. The narrator wasn't bad when voicing the main character, but at other times was so stilted she sounded robotic.
The premise is fascinating and the main character interesting and solidly constructed, but the story began to drag. The narration is generally good but I am left wondering why a character so profoundly a product of his New England origins speaks with a southern accent. I think I will read rather than listen to the next two books planned for this trilogy.
I like Evanovich's novels, and have liked other audio editions, but I found it impossible to listen to this one. The narrator used a painfully exaggerated cartoon-like voice for the NASCAR-driver hero, and a bland generic voice for the New Jersey auto mechanic heroine. I had to turn it off by the 2nd or 3rd chapter. A big disappointment.
