I expected Kellar to be a James Bond: swave, strong, fast on the uptake, emotionally restrained. But he is much more interesting than that. Narration is truely superior. He delivers just the right note of restrain to make this book shine. In one way Kellar is like Bond.
I was sad when the story ended. I wanted to know more about the man and his every day life. The writing is superb and the narrator fit the role.
A little difficult to get into. Lots of "I said", "Susan said", "I said", "She said", "he said". Very annoying for first few chapters. You either get used to it, or settle into it and don't notice after a few chapters. Story line is great. Couldn't wait to listen to next chapter.
Light fare. Nothing happens. Goes from one job to another. A series of unrelated scenes. Save your money.
A great story. Great narrator. Out of the box gentle humor. You can't go wrong with this one!
I have only put down a couple of books in my life before finishing. This was one of them. I gave it a good shot, kept listening to see if it would improve and it just didn't. I was hoping for some interesting or inventive kills, a plot, something to warrant further listening. But it just wasn't there. Honestly one of the worst books I have every tried. I would recommend skipping this book.
