    "Needs work"

    This was an okay read. The characters were likable and the story believable. I was a bit unsatisfied with the ending and a plot twist that was never truly developed. All in all, it was an ok book. The narrator gets one star because of the annoying noises that I heard throughout the book. I'll give the second book a try. Hopefully there will be a new narrator.

    "Great story, terrible performance"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Loved the story, but the poor performance by the speaker and the poor audio quality made listening very distracting.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Interesting plot line; I liked the twists.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lynda Evans???s performances?

    No


    Do you think Deadly Gamble needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes - with a better audio engineer and better speaker.
