I've listened to all of the Death series several times and thoroughly enjoyed them each time. This one is a bit over the top when it comes to the first crime & crime scene description. It almost seemed like the brutality was rehashed and rehashed throughout the book to lengthen the story instead of adding to the plot or suspense.
Every other sentence included some sort of idiomatic phrase, either delivered correctly by the main female lead or incorrectly by the male lead at which time she would correct him. This was "cute" for the first hour but after that it became EXTREMELY tedious. I had hoped the book would be similar to the Molly Harper series but I was so turned off by the writing style I could hardly force myself to finish the book - and the parrot - what purpose did that serve other than the annoying voice. I have read hundreds of audible books and this is the first one I truly wish I had not purchased.
