Probably, though with a different set of expectations.
The first book in the series was about the same as this one, and I listened to both. I think the narrator does an OK job but the story in both books doesn't really catch me.
His narration is good although I did find Dorian Sloan's voice to be a little annoying by the end.
It seems to me that there's going to be one regardless. I wouldn't complain but I'm not going to spend much money on it. Maybe a daily deal but not for a credit or $20. The 2nd book tied up the story line fairly well and I don't really have a desire to go deeper into this universe. I didn't find many of the characters in these books to be genuine or believable. It felt like the story was on rails and no matter what happened the deus ex machina would make sure everything worked out all-right. I know the author spent a lot of time going into back-story and internal-narrative but so much of it seemed too coincidental or tailor-made to help the plot move forward.
I read a lot of science fiction and I love a good mystery book. When I read 'he's like a Sci-Fi Dan Brown', I guess I expected something different than this. I still enjoyed the overall narrative and thought the concept was original and thought-provoking, I just didn't feel any connection to the characters and would have enjoyed it more if they didn't feel so wooden.
the author has a serial issue with making every single character raise their eyebrows, otherwise, excellent.
