There wasn't anything I would want to listen to again. The story dragged and I often found my mind wandering while listening. I will probably still continue to follow the adventures of Davenport and "that effin Flowers" but just like Davenport settling down with a wife and kids has taken the steam out of his stories, now Flowers is getting old.
The person who produces the audio failed with this book. I don't blame Eric Conger but somebody didn't do the homework on how to pronounce place names in Minnesota! Edina is pronounced with a long E and long I. Owatonna starts with a long O, and the college in St Peter is Gustavus and the A in the middle is long. I live in Rochester Minnesota and have family in Mankato, St Peter and the twin cities. Hearing these continually mispronounced was like fingers on a black board.
The narrator does such a terrible job with character voices that this story was spoiled for me. I have read all of the Peter and Rina stories and will go back to the print format before I listen to anything else with this narrator. I have read other reviews where people have disliked the narrator and have hesitated about downloading the audible format, but it has usually only taken a few minutes for me to adjust to a new reader and I am fine. This guy might be acceptable reading a text book but never fiction.
