The way Mr. Perry crafts a character, with beautiful economy and a wonderful sense of social psychology is a treat.
They are all well drawn--it feels just like a movie with great casting
Mr. Kramer is one of the absolute best--up there with George Guidall. I really appreciate the lack of histrionic vocal gymnastics--he is tight, spare, with wonderful pace.
With the wonderful plotting and the top flight narration, I could have listened forever!
I have listened to over 500 books from Audible--this author/narrator combination really deserve your attention
I couldn't get beyond the " over acting" approach used by the narrator. The intonation was just all wrong--using his voice to impart unwanted content and flavor which detracted from the prose. I have had the very same reaction to Scott Brick--so if you like Mr. Brick, you'll like Mr. Chase. This approach completely spoils the story for me.
Yes with a different narrator
He quite simply destroys the best efforts of the author-- no one could read this to ones self and impart the unwanted, unwarranted, and really off putting cadence and tone of Mr. Chase. Please Mr. Chase read it straight!--save the histrionics for your next acting audition.
There should be such a thing as a narrators school.
The dialogue was so terrible that I quit half way through. Try anything by Harlan Coben or John Sandford-- you won't be able to go back.
Very satisfiying--straight ahead clever plotting, spare prose, wonderful dialogue, and narration that made this book come alive. I've read or listened to Sandford's other Virgil Flowers novels and highly recommend this work for those of you who enjoy mystery thrillers.
