    "Junk"

    I didn't finish it. But as most of the later books by this author, it's just junk.

    "Did not get very far, might be a good story?"
    What would have made Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery better?

    I don't know I couldn't bare the narrator.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I don't know I have been disillusioned with my varied choices.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I did not even give the story a chance. Her voice was irritating. She did not do men well at all. She failed this book.


    What character would you cut from Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery?

    I didn't get very far. I may later when I am over the experience listen to the last couple chapters and see if at least the end was good.


    Any additional comments?

    I can not imagine that directors etc. listen to some of these books and say yes put it out there. All I can think of is too much money has been invested with the narrator, a contract, or the crew is afraid of retribution?

    "Not impressive."

    The narrator was a poor choice. She can read well enough. The main character is a man and her male voice is not good. Can't figure why a female reader was chosen. Mystery was good in the end. Had trouble getting into it and staying focused.

    "Just didn't do it for me at all"

    Just didn't do it for me at all. I didn't like the narrator. I couldn't get into the story. I just didn't find it interesting in anyway.

    Story
    "Crime mystery in quirky Alaskan town."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery to be better than the print version?

    No idea, but the narrator was very likeable and did a good performance... So Maybe.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Likeable main character, nice quirky little Alaskan "Northern Exposure" like town. Suprisingly alot happening all the time, what happened in the past, relationship with the female flyer and the current crime mystery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the herring fishing/spotting sequence for some reason. I don't know how accurate it was, but I found it very interesting to follow the short herring fishing "season" from flyers/spotters point of view.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost.

    "Police Procedural Murder in Alaska"
    What made the experience of listening to Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery the most enjoyable?

    Fire and Ice

    The first time that I listened to this I did not really enjoy it. I don't know what changed but my second listen (a year later) and I was really enthralled and caught up in the mystery.

    This takes place in Alaska with lots of colorful characters and several storylines to keep everything interesting. If I didn't have a whole bunch of books to listen to already I would definitely go and listen to the rest of the series.

    Perhaps I will later on. It has peaked my interest.

    The narrator did an adequate job differentiating between characters there were several female and more male characters as well as a preteen boy. I didn't know who was speaking at all times based on his narration.

    NOTE: A couple of bedroom scenes & a few cuss words

    Credit Worthy: Perhaps, I got this on sale for $1.99 - fluke! I will get any others in the series, only on sale BOGO or % off


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Story
    "A great new series from Dana Stabenow"

    This is the First of the Alaska Trooper Liam Campbell novels. Narrated by Marguerite Gavin. Marguerite is a great narrator and brings all of the many characters to life.

    Once Trooper Campbell arrives at his new posting someone dies. In the first three days there are many activities and shootings that take his attention. This story lays the groundwork and background for many characters including the town and villages of Liam's new posting.

    As Liam solves the murder and works to gain the trust of the people at his new posting his personal life becomes Intwined with his investigations. This audiobook is a great first book in what I think will be an even better series.

    I purchased this book for my own interest, this review is my own.

    Story
    "A good crime thriller"

    "Fire And Ice" is a pretty good crime thriller. State trooper Liam Campbell steps off the plane at his new station in Newenham, Alaska and literally right into a murder scene. Talk about being tossed into the deep end! To complicate things, his predecessor leaves without giving him any kind of briefing or workup. Also, Liam's old flame is standing right there on the tarmac by the fresh body, making it a totally "WTF?" moment. Before he can even begin to come to grips with the murder at the airport, Liam is called away on another incident.
    Liam never gets a chance to catch his breath as one incident follows on another. However, he doggedly presses on and eventually begins to tie the various threads of these seemingly disparate crimes together. Eventually we reach a conclusion with most of the bad guys paying for their crimes in one way or another.
    This story gives us lots of action with murder, assaults, and old mysteries. Also, there is some romance (integral to the story), and more than one colorful, oddball characters. (Additionally, I learned much more about herring fishing than I ever expected to know.)
    All in all, a good and interesting story.
