    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    What made the experience of listening to The Cold Dish the most enjoyable?

    The characters are well developed and original. Mr Guidall is a great narrator. Walt is not the usual sheriff but a great person and Henry is someone I would like to know. They would both make great dinner companions.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot did drive the story, the murderer was not anyone I expected. I enjoyed this book and listened to it over 2 days. The back story needed to be told, it made the story smooth without saying hurry up and get to today.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The first time I listened to Mr Guidall was in "The Cat Who..." series, the more serious storyline made me really apprecite his talent. Drama has more range than fluff. But we all need fluff occassionally.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have liked to, but other commitments prevented it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am reading the series and thoroughly enjoying it. When I found out it is a A&E series and I missed two seasons I wished I had found Walt and friends sooner. If you do like the series the books are better. I hope Mr Johnson has many more good ideas and books in him.

    Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan knows what it’s like to be haunted by the past. For years after her daughter, Bonnie, was stolen from her, she fought for closure. When her mother, Sandra, asks Eve to find a missing friend named Beth Avery, she wants to help but is sure that Sandra is hiding something. The fact that she adamantly refuses to go to the police reinforces Eve’s suspicions that something is very wrong. Eve learns that Beth has been locked away in a mental hospital for years....

    Where does Sleep No More rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I always enjoy an Iris Johansen book. This one is great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve Duncan. She never seems to loose her desire to find out the truth, no matter how she is hurting personally.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely. But it took two days to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    After discovering Kendra Michaels I had to go back and read Iris and son Roy's "Close Your Eyes." Both are stand alone books but it is interesting to go back and learn more about characters.
