I have read all of the JA Jance JP Beaumont and Sheriff Brady books and liked everyone. This book, however, is unreadable (or rather, unlistenable). It is BORING! I listen as I drive to and from work and this book is a safety hazard, it tends to put me to sleep.
I love the Andy Carpenter books, and this one is one of the best.
Gardner has a great sense of Carpenter's deprecative style. I love all the joke and wisecracks.
An otherswise wonderful story is ruined by Wasserman's naration. For some reason, Wasserman uses imitations instead of voices, so instead of hearing one of SK's characters you hear a poor imitation of John Wayne, Burt Lancaster or John Houseman.
Ms. Lowell needs to decide if she is writing fiction or an art history text book. She spends so much time on the history of Western American Art that she seems to have forgotten the plot.
And her editor needs to understand that the readers can grasp growing sexual tension without repeating every other paragraph that the heroine found the hero's body "edible."
