    Story

    A pulse-pounding suspense novel, where the line between the virtual world and reality gets blurred when it comes to murder. Complete and unabridged. Evie Wilson was the victim of the villain in DON'T TELL, an assault which resulted in paralysis on one side of her face. After her injury, Evie retreated into the virtual realm, seeking refuge from the public eye by interacting with online friends. Now, with the help of a surgeon, Evie's face is restored and she is ready to return to the real world.

    Story
    What did you love best about I Can See You?

    The story, the narration and how much it took you along on the journey. You really got caught up in the story. You invested in the characters and made your own assumptions about who was responsible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It kept you enthralled. It took you on the journey with Eve (the protagonist). There was just the right amount about her personal life but not too much that you lost track of the case that she was involved in. Apart from her, there were also plenty of characters to hear about and root for/against.


    What about Elisabeth S. Rogers’s performance did you like?

    She read it aloud, like you would in your head. I really think that Elisabeth's performance made this story even better. She would change her voice slightly if speaking "for" another character to really make it seem 'real' and help you get caught up in the story. I couldn't fault Elisabeth's performance.


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

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    I would actively seek out other audiobooks with Elisabeth S Rogers as narrator. She really makes the story 'come to life'.

    Story
    (28)

    A serial killer is targeting gay men, preying on them in popular bars and parks. Assigned to the case, rookie cop Pat St. James feels all too close to the victims. He's gay and firmly in the closet at work. Pat and his fellow cop, Hank, are hanging out in bars, trying to get a lead on the killer. At the same time, Pat's looking for Mr. Right – juggling three men, hoping he'll find the perfect match for himself.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Murder Most Gay?

    I was really intrigued by a murder/drama plot with a gay theme but it failed to live up to the expectation. The most disappointing thing was the script itself. The syntax was halting and contained too many words. David Tunic really had to work hard to make the story seem to flow. I also think that there were too many characters. It's like the author just added extra love interests for the sake of having sex scenes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Simpson again?

    No I wouldn't.


    What three words best describe David Tunic’s voice?

    Canadian. Deep. Crisp.


    What character would you cut from Murder Most Gay?

    One or more of the love interests of the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely think it was the script rather than the narrator that made me only rate this audiobook 2 stars. I also think that there was potential for a great story here but John Simpson has overcrowded it and made it more complicated and thus, harder to follow.
