What the Critics Say

"Charles Colyott is a fresh and bold new voice on the mystery scene. Just when you think it has all been done before, here comes Randall Lee." (Scott Nicholson, author of Liquid Fear)

"Charles Colyott's novel Changes is a stunner. A thrill-ride from start to finish that will stay with you long after you've finished the last page. The characters are unique in detective lore, the situations are mesmerizing and together they draw the reader into a world quite unlike anything previously encountered. Read this book to learn, laugh, and fall in love with a brilliant young writer's work." (Lisa Mannetti, two-time Bram stoker nominee and winner, The Gentling Box)

    "Amazing first book in series!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great mystery. This is my first "martial arts" mystery and I was a little worried that it might be too heavy on the Tai Chi and too weak on the plot. Boy was I wrong! Obviously there is some fighting in the book(the main character is a Tai Chi master after all) but in no way does it over power the plot of the book-it compliments it. The characters are well developed and 3 dimnensional especially Randall Lee with his sarcastic wit and the "master" with his broken English foul mouth. Charles Colyott has wriiten and narrated a very impressiive and unique first book mystery. I gave the book 4 stars for performance because of the slight tin canny sound of the narration but it didn't really bother me so much that I didn't enjoy the book. One more thing guys, this book actually has an ending rather than a damn cliffhanger! Will definitely be listening to "Pressure Points", Randall Lee Mystery book 2 as soon as it comes to Audible.


    What other book might you compare Changes to and why?

    I can't say off hand. This is my first Tai Chi mystery listen.


    What does Charles Colyott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's good with accents and he does bring the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, not really, but i'm not really a sentimental guy.


    Any additional comments?

    I've said enough i think.

    "Another author ruining audiobook by narrating it!"
    Would you try another book written by Charles Colyott or narrated by Charles Colyott?

    I will buy this book and read it, as the positive reviews are all Kindle version reviews. Clearly the narration has totally ruined what otherwise is supposed to have been a great book.I will not buy another audiobook narrated by him, however.


    What could Charles Colyott have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    By employing a professional actor or narrator to narrate the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration was awful. I couldn't bear to listen to the book.Read like an adolescent reading out a recipe book, often mumbled and sounded as if it was recorded in the bathroom. Tinny and echo-ey (and not in a cool, atmospheric way!)The worst, the worst, the worst.


    Any additional comments?

    How about performance stats for narrators and a big health warnng for all writer-narrated non-autobiographical books!

    "Great story, not so great acoustics"

    The story was very entertaining, clever and with a couple of twists that kept you interested. The main issue was the quality of the audio recording. It seems like it was recorded in the author's front room and every so often he would walk away from the microphone. Also there is some random music between some of the chapters which isn't necessary. Overall though the quality of the story makes it a worthwhile purchase.
