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.
