While the audio isnt long (maybe three ish hours) I definitely had a struggle finishing it. Mainly due to the voice of the narrator. I was fine with the voices of the characters that the narrator gave (as many of them had a unique quality to it) but other than that, the narrative quality was so monotone that I found myself zoning off at times.
The story itself wasn't bad. The idea was very creative but that alone wasn't enough. An animal working to solve a crime is pretty neat, hearing everything from that animals perspective, but the crime itself seemed to be lacking any detective work. The bad guy in question didn't seem to be linked to any clues given, but I will conceded that if I am wrong, the narrative voice causing me to zone out cost me to miss the link.
The other burden of the story was that it was longer than it needed to be. A lot of descriptive detail was put into things that didn't really matter in the grand scheme, and with so many characters through in quick, it became hard to keep up with everyone's names.
Overall I think it could have used some more revisions in story before being put up.
I woukd recommend last flag from this author instead.
