The best description I can think of for this book is that it is the literary equivalent of a movie on the SyFy channel. In other words, entertaining plot,often unintentionally humorous, not the greatest writer and the WORST narrator! Oh my god, maybe I'm just spoiled with the likes of Craig Wasson and George Guidall, but this guy. Everyone sounded the same, men, women, the elderly. There were a couple characters that he attempted accents for, but often he would forget they had accents, and they'd sound like everyone else and the accents were hilariously bad to begin with! And the characters themselves, thanks to the inexpert craftsmanship of the author, were ridiculously one-dimensional and cliche and at times, borderline racist. I mean the team of paranormal investigators consisted of a mysterious Spaniard, a wise Native American, and a tech savvy inventor referred to on numerous occasions as a former "gang banger" or looking like a "gang banger." Yeah, bad. And the narrators attempts at sounding African American, hilarious. So, in short, I enjoyed this book like I enjoy an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. It was a non-stop hilarious romp! Sadly, however, that was probably not the author's intention.
