    "A Great Listen"

    I have read and loved JA Jance's novels before but this time is my first on audiobook. I truly enjoyed the twists and turns of the story. The narrator did an excellent job with the different voices and nuances to distinguish all the characters. I was disappointed to see she had not done many other Joanna Brady books - I will look for her narrations again. Timing at the end of the story was somewhat predicatble, but of course with a pregnant sheriff that is expected. Most of all I ended up really liking and disliking a lot of the characters, which is what you really want in a good virtuous/evil whodunnit. I highly recommend Dead Wrong, I kept looking for excuses to get in the car and drive around so I could hear more.

    "Dead Wrong"

    I like the way J.A.Jance keeps the cronilogical order of Joanna's life.

    "Great book -- perfect narrator"

    I've often thought that J. A. Jance and I must be sisters -- clearly we had the same mother. No other way she could have created some of these "difficult women" other than to have experienced it herself. In Dead Wrong, two of the female characters she brings in are so spot-on with what I remember from my own family that I'm convinced Jance must have been hiding under the table and taking notes on the conversations. Love it, just love it -- made me laugh many times over. I remember, I remember!

    The Joanna Brady series is one of my very favorites in all of literature. Reading -- or listening to -- another installment is like meeting old friends. The stories are just excellent -- real life, real people, real situations -- well, maybe that one where Joanna, under assault out there in the desert somewhere, takes off her bra and uses it as a slingshot to off one of the bad guys is a little bit of a stretch but for the most part, these books are fun because they're so believable.

    As far as I know, this is the first Joanna Brady book narrated by Stephanie Brush, and I have to say I love that too! I became a fan of Brush's in her narration of "Crow in Stolen Colors" by Marcia Simpson, and then again in Simpson's "Sound Tracks", two other really excellent books, these set in Alaska. I thought her voice -- and subtle little unidentifiable accent -- was perfect for those out-of-the mainstream tales, but now I see that it's also perfect for that of Joanna Brady. Very good choice -- and makes an already wonderful book that much better.

    "Another Good One"

    I FINALLY have found a series of really good books to read. I love J. Brady as the lead character. With each book, you are ready to help her solve another one or see what she is going to get into next. It is a great read each time. The auther has a great handle on story line and it is a pleasure to read the next episode.

    "A Great, Great Listen!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have always loved the Joanna Brady series. There are always great and realistic characters and plots. Stephanie Brush IS Joanna Brady. This is a great story, and read perfectly.

    "Joanna Brady Series"

    I really enjoy the Joanna Brady series and I like J.A. Jance's writing. The narrator brings the story alive. But there seems to be a formal quality to the story and it is difficult to "feel" what the characters feel. In comparision to Jance's Ali Reynolds series this one is lacking a bit. But, it is still an excellent listen.

    "Narrator needs much more training"
    Would you try another book from J. A. Jance and/or Stephanie Brush?

    I might try another Jance book but definitely not one narrated by Brush. She made the male characters sound retarded.


    Has Dead Wrong turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I won't be eager to try another. It was very annoying to me that Joanna, a pregnant mother, put herself in dangerous circumstances so close to the baby's birth. She seemed to have no sense. Also she needed some backbone to deal with both mothers.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    As I said above, she made the male characters sound retarded with a slow halting speech. Particularly annoying for Joanna's husband.


    Was Dead Wrong worth the listening time?

    No, too annoying from the narrator.
