I know this is a new series and, as such, will develop over time but I was disappointed on many levels. First of all, it was a hard listen. Scott Brick's delivery seemed flat. There wasn't much change between characters. More of a straight "read" than performance. If the story hadn't been interesting I would have given up. As for the story, because it was such a unique storyline, it kept my interest; however, put all thoughts of Stephanie Plumb and her antics out of your mind. There is no comparison. The out loud laughter factor that I always find with Stephanie is nonexistent and Nick is no Ranger!!!!
All of that said, the book is about cons and is written with creativity. I do give the ending two stars though. It was rushed and very flat. It would be a five star series with a couple of changes. A new narrator and better endings. The narrator should be one who can infuse the characters with personalities and identities. As for the endings? Continue to write with the same imagination and creativity that got us to that spot in the first place.
