    (140)

    Aidan Flynn, a private investigator and eldest of the Flynn brothers, scoffs at the haunted-house rumors - especially since Kendall Montgomery, a tarot card reader who has been living in the mansion, is the one to tell him the tale of a woman in white. But when he finds a human bone on the grounds and another by the river, Aidan delves into the dark history of the Flynn plantation.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe. The story is okay, but it's a little awkward and disjointed. It's hard to tell, however, if this is due to the way the book was written or the way it's narrated. The main character's voice is normal, but otherwise most of the men with southern accents sound either dumb or effeminate. The female voices are AWFUL and they really had a negative influence on the way I felt about the characters. All of the women sound stupid or whiny. It made the whole book very irritating to listen to. If I hadn't purchased this book as part of a $4.95 sale, I would have been pretty upset about how bad it was.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

    NO!!

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

    Kind of. I like long, complicated stories, but this book could easily have been half as long. It was often tedious and slow- moving.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    That aspect of the story was pretty well-done.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Edoardo Ballerini?

    John Lee would be my first choice, but almost anyone would be an improvement. Although many reviewers gave the narrator high marks, I really disliked his performance. It was way too slow & melodramatic.


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of the historical detail was well-researched, but to someone familiar with the time period, the several historical inaccuracies were really annoying.
