When will other authors and publishers realize what Brett Battles and Nelson DeMille, as well as others, have already...? Scott Brick is the best in the business of narration. I intentionally search for books that he narrates for my next purchase. That's how I found the Jonathan Quinn series. So glad I did.
...but I'm now all out as this was his last on my "unread list." After having stumbled across the first of the Joe Pitt series, I became a fan of his dark style, "noir-ish" as a previous reviewer aptly labeled it. Huston is very skilled and has a keen way with words, particularly when it comes to details which may, at first glance, seem to be trivial but lend flavor and spice to the overall scenario he is developing. Unlike a few other reviewers, I appreciated the two-narrator design of this audiobook, as I think it went a long way toward demarcating the two points of view presented. Not even the skillful Scott Brick could have pulled that off as well.
There's something intriguing about name-dropping tomes and the telling of relatively secret stories when it involves the famous, past and present. And, while the narration by Mr. Conrad is not up to the standards of readers such as Scott Brick, it's certainly good enough. A lot of flavor would have been missed had the author of such an autobiographical novel not read it to us. Thanks for a really fun read, Mr. Conrad.
