    "Dana and Marquerite are hard to beat"

    I have read all of Dana Stabenow's books and have listened to many of them. I like her characters and good stories to go with them. Marquerite Gavin narrates them to a T.

    Story
    "Immense, Immersive Enjoyment"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Cold-Blooded Business to be better than the print version?

    I have read several of the novels, but never listened to one. I don't know that it's better, necessarily, but different, and I enjoyed it a lot. The narrator is perfect for Kate, and Dana Stabenow's writing is always pitch perfect. I liked this audio book immensely.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kate Shugak, of course. She's smart, witty, and kicks ass! What's not to like?


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    I thought Marguerite's take on Kate was awesome. I will admit, I was a bit apprehensive, but she pulled it off with perfect tone and clarity. Well Done.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. As it was, I got through it in about 3 different sittings, but was constantly thinking about the story when I was away.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is awesome, and now that I've discovered them on audio, I am even more excited to go on many more adventures with Kate, Mutt and Jack. Love it !!!

    Story
    "All you ever wanted to know...pipelines in Alaska!"

    An okay story slogged through because of fondness for the author, the series, and the
    narrator. The story is hindered by a too-detailed description of the killing ground oill field and not enough character development of the perpetrators. It did provide more info about
    Kate and her private life-- especially poignant since I know what happens in later books. The narrator seems to speak just a bit too fast and I got the feeling I was being rushed.
    I did enjoy the brief glimpse into the archeology aspect; if only this part had been more indepth.The story is predictablle but elevated by the respect shown to native peoples.

    "Another GREAT listen added to the list!"

    I want to start off by saying I am biased with my reviews of the Kate books. I have read them all and will re-read them at least once a year. I enjoy the fact that Dana is sticking with Marguerite Gavin as a narrator! She does an excellent job of pulling the characters out of the book and putting them in your mind as individuals. I wonder about pronunciation and I was so happy to hear that those two work together to make sure names and locations don't get lost in translation. I always keep a credit on my acct for that fleeting moment where another book is released! Thank you Dana, Marguerite and Audible for giving my busy day a touch of joy, suspense and laughter.

    Kate taking on 'the slope'. YUP, it's finally time she wondered up there to see what all the ruckus is about. And she gets more than she ever could have imagined. From long, busy as hell work days with amazingly scrumptious dinners to first-aid calls on and off the field. Turtle races, hot fudge sundays and a swimming pool/sauna... all on the slope. Add a little dope in the mix and it all goes bad and I mean real bad! So bad that even Kate can't wrap her mind around it... not at first at least.

    "Great story!"

    I can't believe I missed this when it came out last month. I d/l this morning and just finished it. Love Kate. Now I have to wait for the next one to pop up here. They're good books with good characters and solid plots and I'd read them if that's the only way they came but add in Marguerite Gavin narrating, and it's too good not to wait for them to show up here.
