Sometimes even the deepest, darkest secrets find their way to the surface...
Thirteen-year-old Willie Compton and his younger brother Leonard stumble upon a mine shaft while hiking the hills of Park City, Utah. The shaft is unsealed, abandoned. While Leonard stares at the hole in wonderment, a Slinky he's been flipping back and forth between his hands slithers through his fingers, tumbling toward the mouth of the shaft. Leonard bolts forward, reaches out to grab it, but he slips, then he falls.
Up-and-coming filmmaker Melody Sinclair stirs in her chair, nervously awaiting the debut of her film at the Sundance Film Festival. Based on a true story, Bed of Bones tells a tale of murder, shining a big, bold light on Park City's tragic past. A past that's about to revisit the present.

I'm not sure if the poor review is due only to the narration....or if the story was sub-par as well. I found it so hard to listen to, that I may not have given the story a fair assessment.
Great book. Reader was awful.
Seriously needs some voice and acting lessons before attempting another read. Voices weren't believable. Inflection distracted from story.
Will read More in series.
Liked story very much. Did not expect ending.
I liked the plot, I very much disliked the audio performance because she didn't seem as if she did more than read the book and insert a few inflections for the various characters
In every way. I think if I were to simply read the book I would have liked it much more. The narrator came across to me as one that should have been targeted for a young reader. She wasn't able to change voices well for the other characters, and had very little range attempting to make those distinctions.
This isn't my normal genre, and I've not read or heard any of the other books in this series. I was hoping for more from the performer
Immediately, the fact that the reader usually stressed the last syllable of most words was so extremely distracting that I almost overlooked the unrealistic dialogue.
Until the author gains some expertise and the reader takes some elocution lessons, I can't recommend this book to anyone. I couldn't make it past the second chapter which seemed to have no connection to the first
No. Difficult to listen to with the terrible narration.
Good ending, liked the twist, but too much lag time to get there.
Anyone else would be an improvement.
