If only the book had been narrated by another person, I would have loved this audiobook as much as I love all the Myron Bolitar audiobooks. Although I became accustomed to Steven Weber's weak-voiced (certainly not 6'4", 220 lbs.) Myron Bolitar, it was as though no thought whatsoever was given to the secondary characters. Words cannot describe how badly Steven Weber's characterization of Esperanza grated on my nerves. Win was a nonentity. I was looking forward to this continuation of the series, but the narration was almost insulting, it was so bad.
The author creates a perfect mix of interesting detail and taut mystery. I live in Cleveland and appreciate the nuance with which she portrays the city I've grown to love. Having exhausted the lists of Lee Child, Harlan Coben, and J.R. Robb, I needed something new. I found it with Lisa Black. I've now read or listened to all of Lisa Black's books that I can get. Like the city of Cleveland, she's a hidden gem of an author.
