I didn't bother to download the unabridged version when it was offered at no further cost. The abridged version was quite tedious enough for me. No suspense. No plot twists. No intellectual challenges. Even the love interest was cornball and pedestrian. Yawn....
Save your credits;this one stinks on ice. John Glover's talents as a narrator are wasted on this rubbish. Derivative and dull. Even the online R-rated re-enactments can't save this dog.
This is an outstanding contemporary British police procedural. It grabbed me in the first five minutes and held on fiercely through the last five. I guessed whodunit midway through, but that's not what this novel is about. It runs much deeper than that.
The narration was brilliant. I'll be watching for other audiobooks voiced by this reader with anticipation.
Stephanie Plum and her sidekick, Lula, are laugh-out-loud hilarious. Stephanie is no superhero bounty hunter (her gun is usually at home in the cookie jar when she needs it most), but she always gets her man. The action is fast. The romance is hot and humorous at the same time. Even the villains are quirky and amusing. If you enjoy a bit of chaos and wreckage, Stephanie always finds a way to utterly destroy one or more cars in evermore spectacular fashion.
I can't understand why these books have never been made into movies. (With Jill Hennessy from "Crossing Jordan" as Stephanie Plum and Antonio Banderas as Ranger...simply delicious).
Listen and laugh!
