Excellent book, the characters were real, I agonized over Theo's pain, dreaded the possibility that Uncle Cy might have been the killer, or that Theo would die before he could find out who really killed his mother.
The music between 'cd's was annoying. Someone could have edited out the filler that is used to provide transitions for cd's.
Grippando's books never let me down..they are always first class. Keeps me guessing until the very end. Excellent work by the narrator.
Also liked the music and sounds during the audio, gave an extra feel of suspense. Uncle Cy's jazz at the end of the audio was a beautiful ending.
I liked this story. It kept me interested and wanting to listen to more. I like a story that I can't figure out immediately and this one did just that. It keeps the listener intrigued to figure out who killed Theo's mom. The narrator is excellent and easy to listen to. He has a great voice for each character and somehow makes them come alive. Awesome!
Excellent Book...............but the music (?) between chapters has to be the most annoying I have ever experienced in an audiobook.
This is a typical Grippando story with great character development, twisty plot and a narrator who truly 'plays' the characters. The terrible thing about this recording is the music which is loud, discordant and totally inappropriate to the story line.
The music was okay for the first two chapters then it didn't really match the mood of the story. It was also so loud at the beginning that you could barely hear the first few sentences. Other than that the storyline was good. I have listened to the book twice because of the story.
A better voice. Too hard in his annunciation ... and the horrible music that comes up on occasion needs to go. The plot draaaaags on :(
No, but I am not sure if I would listen to this series with this narrator
A voice was too dramatic at times and did not have the depth of Guidell.
Not sure. I just could not get into this book. It just rambled on and on...
I usually like this writer. But the narrator and the plot could have improved
