James Lee Burke and Dave Robicheaux are my particular favorites. And I can't imagine a better reader than Mark Hammer. His Louisianna accent is especially good.
This story promised to be a nice, juicy ghost story. Just look at the cover. I have listened to over half the book and, aside from some minor occult experiences, there is still nothing much happening. Much forshadowing with no follow-through. I found myself wondering why I was sticking in, so I stopped.
I have read several books by this author and have enjoyed them. This time, I don't know, I couldn't connect with it.
I liked the Burke stories, but this was my least favorite. I think he phoned this one in.
Same old stuff. Mysterious monster, arrogant scientists and hollywood director, some nice people, everybody dies.
This book was OK, but the plot moved way, way too slowly. Also, the reader was reading.
