This book is a joy - the narrator is skillful and her characterisations believable, her voice and intonation suit the main character, and draw you quickly into the story. The story is fast moving and action packed - I almost found myself sitting in the car just to find out what was going to happen next! The paranormal aspects of the story were believable and almost normal - nothing was over the top. I cant wait to listen to the next books in the series!
Web of lies builds on the promise of the first Elemental Assassin novel. Gin is an attractive, well drawn character, and the other minor characters are also well drawn, adding dimension to the story. Lots of action, great descriptions of the world in which it takes place - so good that you feel like you know it! What really makes this series is the outstanding narration Lauren Fortgang brings Gin to life - the right accent, right intonation and believable voices for the other characters. I love this series!
The Narrator for this book is so irritating at the beginning of the book, that I almost stopped listening. Her narrations gets better the deeper into the book you get, however, the reverse is true for the story which starts out so promisingly. The murder ivestigation seems to get lost in the "erotic" sub plot. I was quite disappointed in this.
The Water Room featuring vintage detectives Bryant and May is an engrossing mystery filled with a host of eccentric characters brought to life by the excellent narration of Tim Goodman. Close listening is essential so that you don't miss any of the detail that brings this story and the characters to life. I loved it, and found myself sitting in the car just to keep listening - and like reading any good book was disappointed when it caame to an end. It might be an acquired taste, but for me the Peculiar Crimes Unit mysteries are a taste that I will keep coming back for.
