This book ranks high personally because I'm a Newark native, and I work for a local TV station in the Newark area so I relate closely to what Brad is writing and the accuracy of the locations.
Favorite characters in all of the Carter Ross series for me has been Carters interns, and this is no different.
In this story probably Lunky for sure.
Yes, I enjoy the Carter Ross stories, I have listened to them all and sadly will miss them I await the next story. I hope Mr. Parks is writing as I type this.
No specific character stood out.
It ranks high, It's in my top 3.
the messages, the history, the irony, and the plot.
He did a great job of giving each character a unique identity. Carver especially.
Previous Carte Ross tales were better, this was a generic version from the three titles that preceded it. Adam Verner although struggled to produce the voices of Tommy, or "T" that I was accustom, did do a decent job.
In other Carter Ross stories the interns became such a part of the stories, in this installment the intern makes cameo's and although he is a big reason the story steered in the direction it did I really didn't feel attached to him like I did Sweet Thang, or Tommy.
Adam, wasn't terrible, but I was use to Macleod Andrews, and the characters he created, Adam didn't really keep that consistent, that said I think he was great.
It could sequel off, because the investigation was left unclear, but I would leave it alone, not enough interest to go there.
Yes, it was a listen that kept me involved with the character. Chase clearly was dealing with demons, and his actions specifically at the end was a moment I didn't see coming.
Not sure, nothing to really change.
Yes, Nick's performance was great.
Yes, the racist related component extracted an emotion out of me, the end really surprised me, I was caught off guard.
I may, this was ok, I appreciated the story, but it felt like there were too many moving parts.
depends on the person.
Yes it was good.
in retrospect yes.
Strangely the historic aspect about Newark I didn't know about, some of his side descriptions sent me on a research marathon.
Sweet Thang being so naive about Akilah.
Macleod Andrew's owns this character.
Carter Ross, Crime Solver.
The attention to detail. I'm from Newark, and although I reside now in Middlesex County, my current profession ironically for a local TV station, takes me to the very places Carter Ross describes in his travels.
I appreciated the characters, from Tommy to Tina.
Too many to list. I even applaud how MacLeod gave each character an identity. It was moments I forgot he was Tina or T, or the Director.
Absolutely. My listening is often done while cycling.
This was my first audio book download, being on the road and in the field doesn't provide a reading opportunity, heard about this book, and saw that Angela was narrating. Angela's voice and the character transitions is why I would consider listening to this again.
Basel because of his blunt and direct nature, Angela made him real.
Everything! Probably wouldn't have gotten the same experience by just reading myself. I almost felt after the last words she spoke, as if I had just saw a film. I wish she did this more often.
It surprised me, I kind of suspected certain things, but was a bit surprised. July and her lack of compassion made me chuckle, and Basel's Caribbean description of others made me laugh.
