"Where the Dead Lay" is among the very worst of the 183 books I have downloaded from Audible.com as well as hundreds of others on tape or disk from other sources. The plot is exaggerated to the point where one can no longer "suspend disbelief." Development of the characters is just as poorly executed. At no point does the story approach believability. Nor is there the slightest redemption in the performance of the reader, Scott Brick. Although he appears to be a popular reader of audio books, he uses the same, falling inflection on what seems to be about 90 percent of the sentences, adding to the dismal mood of the book and the characters that people it. I frequently check readers reviews, but this is the first I have contributed. I am doing so in the hope of helping others to avoid an unfortunate experience. With this book, the writing and the reading are astound consistent with one another and throughout, but unfortunately they are consistently bad.
