I have not read any of Parker's books before. I had only seen a few of the tv movies made from his books and I thought I would give him a try. I like his plots, but can't he figure out how to write dialogue without those incessant "saids" ? It is truly annoying even in the written form. Whatever "style" this is, I don't like it Kate Burton does a great job narrating other books, but I couldn't finish this one.
This audio rendition can't decide if it is an old time radio show or a reading of a book. The audio quality sounds as if it was done in someone's basement. At first the sound effects appear to be mistakes in the recording, but then you realize they are supposed to be there. They are added in odd places and though the author does a decent job reading, they should have left it to professionals. The story is decent, but I may have to read the book to see if I like the story or not.
