    Story
    "I couldn't finish..."

    Any chance this mediocre book had of drawing me in was completely destroyed by the narrator. And since the rest of this series seem to be read by Bruce Miles, I doubt I will buy any more of them. I read mediocre literature all the time; for us Mystery, Crime and Thriller fans, there just aren't enough quality choices out there for prolific readers. But narration can make or break average writing. Take The Dresden Files for example. The writing, while better than this, is nowhere close to great literature, yet James Marsters' narration takes them to another level. Not so here...


    I got as far as chapter 10. Neither the plot, the writing, nor the dialogue was able to get me past Mile's narration. His default voice is pleasant enough and so the narrative parts were acceptable, though the cadence was too sing-songish. But for some inexplicable reason almost ALL dialogue, also too sing-songish, whether male or female, was delivered in some variation of a high pitched, strained rasp which just grated on my nerves until I could no longer pay attention to the story. The most irritating were the females. Everyone sounded the same and had the same inflection, except some were louder than others. The tone of this narration did not suit a crime novel at all.


    I'd say if someone wanted to read this series, the hard copies are likely to be more enjoyable.

    Story
    "Always Something Happening"
    What did you like best about this story?

    There was always something happening. It never got boring. Just when I thought I was getting an idea of who did it the author added another twist to keep me guessing.


    What about Bruce Miles’s performance did you like?

    The narrator had distinctive voices for each of the main characters and his dramatic reading was very entertaining. I doube anyone else could do better.


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

    Yes

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

    I would loved to have listened to it all at once if I had the time. The story line
    kept my interest. Can't wait for the next one to come out at Audible.com
