    "This book came out in 2003"

    Kellerman wrote this in 2003, but it's being packaged as a new release. Audible knew that the more foolish among us (me) would take this to mean newly written as well and buy it immediately. This is a rehash of a pretty good story, but one I have already read and paid for. Kellerman is doing this kind of marketing and so is Baldacci. COME ON! Put the original publish dates on your audible page! I wont feel so scammed.

    "reader"

    I much prefer Rubenstein as the reader of the Deleward books. Don't enjoy this reader nearly as much which makes a big difference in the enjoyment of the book.

    Story
    "WAY too long for a less than stellar end"
    What would have made Devil's Waltz better?

    The story could have been half as long to accomplish what it did. It goes on and on, taking forever to reach the climax..only to find it's not worth the huge time commitment. His later books are much more enjoyable.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jonathan Kellerman again?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Try out some of Kellerman's more recently written books. He's finally moved beyond the lengthy prose that provides nothing to the plot of the story itself.

    Story
    "heard it before"

    shall be looking for a refund.
    heard or read this before ... some 12 years ago, at least.
    (had a previous account with audible, but can't seem to access list of titles from that time)
    so, don't have a record to avoid repeats.

    "This is an OLD book!!"
    Would you try another book from Jonathan Kellerman and/or Alexander Adams?

    By JK? Always. I would just check the copyright date first.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jonathan Kellerman? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Nothing really.


    Did Devil's Waltz inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    When I downloaded this I thought "Wow! I must have missed one of his releases. I kept thinking 'pick up your GPS' or wondering why he didn't have a cell phone and was disappointed in the different voice of the characters. When I figured out it was one of his older works I tried to like it, but having read the series to the last book with just missing the first few, I couldn't enjoy it.
