    Barbara Holloway is a trial lawyer who tends to take on difficult cases, but this time it seems there's no defense at all. It appears that Vinny Jessup died when his car rolled over on a bad curve on Lookout Mountain. Then the sheriff finds the gunshot wound. With a large insurance policy as her motive, could his much younger wife have staged the death?

    Overall

    After 225 minutes of "No Defense (Unabridged)", I had to stop listening. The plot failed to show any movement and can be best described as a "long introduction". There is very little character development as they are introduced into the story and you're left wondering why they do the things they do and react in particular ways.

    What I found worse than the story line was the narrator's interpretation. With most audiobooks, each character's voice is distinct as well as unique. Unfortunately, all of the male characters sound the same and the same holds true for the females. In an ideal situation, you would be able to listen to an audiobook and become engrossed in the story. Not the case here. I became bored with the monotone narration and frustrated with trying to figure out who said what.
