    I have read all of JD, this one was the worst. Story was far from suspenseful, incredibly dragged out and not in the style of JD.

    As a prosecutor in Houston, Penn Cage sent killers to death row. But as mayor of his hometown - Natchez, Mississippi - Penn will face his most dangerous threat. Urged by old friends to try to restore this fading jewel of the Old South, Penn has ridden into office on a tide of support for change. But in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling, and now five steamboats float on the river beside the old slave market, like props from Gone With the Wind.

    Would you try another book from Greg Iles and/or Dick Hill?

    Greg Iles is one of my favorite authors. I recently purchased "The Devil's Punchbowl".I could not get too far into it due to the narrator, Dick Hill. I deleted the book after purchasing it because of Dick Hill. His accent (real or faked) was not easy to follow, his slow pace of speaking was annoying, and he drops his voice at inprotant words and makes it hard to understand.Before i purchase another book, I will check that Dick Hill is NOT the narrator.


    What other book might you compare The Devil's Punchbowl to and why?

    Any book narratated by Dick Hill.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    No, never.


    What character would you cut from The Devil's Punchbowl?

    Didn't get that much into it because of Dick HIll's narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Please don't let Dick Hill narrate any more good books!!!

    Case One: A little girl goes missing in the night. Case Two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack. Case Three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.

    Carrie says: "Deftly written, completely original mystery"
    "The narration makes this come alive."

    Story

    Although Kate Atkinson's novels can go on and on a bit, the narration of this one made the story very enjoyable. The lovely English accent of Susan Jameson gives this story life! The characters are like so many people you know and her skill as a narrator brings out all the subtle humor within the story. The story begins with 5 separate case studies, so different and unconnected that one wonders how they will ever be brought together. They are finally entwined together with many little surprises.
