Always after books that read well in the tractor!
Though short, I enjoyed this one. How some of the characters reacted with garlic made me die laughing.
Maintains the high level of writing and narrating og thi series
All of the In Death series manage to keep me enthralled.
I am a seasoned audio-book listener with a library of over 75 audiobooks in this genre. I can tell you that this book, if the curse words were removed, would be better placed in the children's section. It's written on a fifth-grade level (if that); the plot is flat and the reader turns the lead character's side-kick into an audible version of Gomer Pile.
The female lead character lacks just that- character. She's curt, bossy, and one-dimensional. Her love interest is even less developed; leaving one to believe the author used Johnny Bravo as inspiration. His character is transparent, self-centered and exudes machismo.
I keep expecting the side-kick to say, "Aw, golly gee; I thought the amusement park was haunted by a real ghost, not the former owner in a Halloween Mask."
Bottom Line: Wasted Money, Angry Listener. I'd laugh if I hadn't just spent $30 for two of these audiobooks.
