After reading the entire Adrien English series I was looking for a way to introduce Josh Lanyon's work to a dear friend of mine who didn't have the opportunity to read the books. But I knew he liked audiobooks. So I was excited to find "Fatal Shadows" listed at audible.com. After listening to it myself first, I can say in all honesty that the tone of the story is successfully translated into sound thanks to Chris Patton's sensitive use of his fabulous voice.
From the very start the listener gets a mental image of the characters involved and is drawn into the plot as Adrien's story unfolds. There is murder, suspense, old friends and handsome strangers, and the question of whom to trust.
Although I'd never dare to question Josh Lanyon's excellent choice of title, if asked what alternative I would have chosen instead of "Fatal Shadows" it would be something along the line of "A Wounded Heart" or "Perpetual Check".
Hopefully Chris Patton is going to record the other four books of the Adrien English mysteries as well. I'm looking forward to their release in the near future.
