I grabbed this book because I had listened to some other books by the narrator. Since I enjoyed detective novels and since I'm from Texas I figured this would be a good choice. Like any first book in a series it takes a little bit to get going, but this one isn't too bad. We get into some action right on the outset. Great story!
However like another reviewer has said, sometimes it can be a bit tricky to get over the mispronunciations. For most people they won't notice, but being someone who lives in Texas it seemed to throw me off a bit every time. Otherwise a great listen.
If you've been listening to this series thus far, one thing you will notice about this book is that it's about half the length. Personally I feel as this story isn't as up to par as the earlier books in the series. Again great performance by Tom Stechschulte.
I've so far listened to the 5 of the books, and am in the middle of the 6th book. I must say that this was my favorite out of the bunch. Great story, with great tension. Shows how different City and Country life in Texas can be.
Again with all of the books, being a Texan sometimes the immersion in the story is broken with all the mispronunciations. Like someone said on a review of a previous Tres Navarre book, you would think it wouldn't come up too often... but it does more often than you think. Like Gruene Hall is pronounced "Green," and there are other mispronunciations of other cities.
However even with this, it is a great story with a great narrator that really brings the characters alive.
