Hoye has a very droll delivery style which meshes extremely well with Hiaason's "over the top" fictional style. It's a great combination. I loved it, my 13 year old daughter loved it (although I had to fast forward through some of the gamier sections) and my wife loved it. Many of Hiaason's characters are so off the wall that his books aren't realistic, but I don't think they're supposed to be. Reading his stuff is an entrance into another world, bizzare and very funny. I love his stuff, but I don't take it seriously.
I liked Hoye so much I tracked down a couple of his other books. He's that good.
The story, like most of Robin Cooks, is fun. Cook gives you something to think about and while he's no Faulkner the books are usually fun to read (or listen to). This narrator is awful, though. Both my wife and I liked the book and hated the narrator. I winced whenever he tried to mimic a female voice. I won't get another one with this narrator.
