    Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. It’s just not easy being an ethical serial killer - especially while trying to avoid the unshakable suspicions of the dangerous Sergeant Doakes (who believes Dexter is a homicidal maniac... which, of course, he is). In an attempt to throw Doakes off his trail, Dexter has had to slip deep into his foolproof disguise. While not working as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, he now spends nearly all his time with his cheerful girlfriend, Rita....

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Made me cringe every time he spoke. Contrary to what the byline says--this is not the same narrator as the first book. While the narration in Darkly Dreaming was not great it was at least bearable. The narrator for Dearly Devoted has such a fake cadence and irritating enunciation that it makes me cringe every time I turn it on. I can only manage to listen to it for a few minutes at a time before I have to turn it off. I really wish I hadn't bought the whole series but I just assumed it would be the same narrator as the first book..

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    What a disappointment to find that after listening to 12 Dresden books, Audible changed the narrator. After 12 books I was used to the way James Marsters brought all the characters to life. The current narrator, John Glover, just doesn't have the range of voices and accents that Mr. Marsters has, so half the time you can't tell who is supposed to be speaking. Is it Dresden? Is it Murphy? Who can tell? I could have gotten used to Dresden sounding like a little old Jewish guy from Brooklyn--because after all, maybe your voice changes when you are on the other side--but I found my mind wandering constantly while listening to this book because so many of the voices ran together for me and became a monotone. It's a good thing they've brought James Marstersback for Book 14 otherwise this would have been my last Dresden book. I think Audible should do the right thing for their listeners and have James Marsters re-record Book 13 so we can listen to it the way it should have been recorded in the first place.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Glover’s performances?

    Definitely not.

    "The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup."

    "Best Narrator"
    Overall

    Susan Bennett is the best narrator ever and I wish she would do a lot more books so I could buy them. I tried listening to a Kim Harrison book with another narrator and I just cringed at how awful it was compared to Susan Bennett--I had to turn it off. It was a pleasure listening to the Christopher Moore books thanks to Ms. Bennett's flawless performances.
