    I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.

    "Worst Narrator Ever!"

    I had to slow the recorder down in order to listen to the book at all. Even slowing it down didn't change the voice, which was a terrible narration voice and didn't change between characters. The good news is that the story is so intriguing and there's so much suspense that I listened to the entire book in spite of the narrator. I would have given this book a five based on the story, how tightly written it is with no drag time, except for the narrator and that the book leave the listener dangling, which I didn't appreciate. I had to come back to Audible to download the second book in this series just to find out what happens.

    "Narrator rushes through"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and/or Alan Nebelthau?

    Lisa Jackson - Yes. Alan Nebelthau - NO


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator doesn't pause appropriately and goes directly from one part of the story to another without even taking a breath. It's very difficult to follow and I was constantly going back to figure out what I missed. Because I had to keep going back, the story seemed like it didn't flow well and was disjointed. But I think that was mostly due to the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I was curious about the rest of the books in this series; however, it's the same narrator. I think I'll skip them.

    "I listened for more than 14 hours for this?!!"
    What would have made Left to Die better?

    See below...


    What could Lisa Jackson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Lisa Jackson could have finished writing the novel, not copped out with a flimsy conclusion to one story arc, and then not setting up a conclusion to the main story arc, only to leave us hanging with no resolution to Pascoli's family crisis or to her ultimate fate or that of the serial killer. I feel ripped off! If this is typical of Jackson's work, then I won't go near any of her other novels.


    What three words best describe Alan Nebelthau’s performance?

    Good.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to ask for a refund!

    Story
    "Fast Paced"

    This was my first Lisa Jackson book and I really enjoyed it. It was fast moving, had a good plot and I connected with the characters. What I found most frightening is that a nut job, serial killer is walking among the public and no one is the wiser. There are actually two different stories going on surrounding the brutal killings and parts of the story are told from inside the mind of the killer. A little romance mixed with suspense is always fun and in this case dangerous. At the end of the book our killer is still on the loose and none of the detectives nor the FBI can figured out the strange clues he is leaving behind.

    I will definitely be reading on in this series and am very interested in how many of the characters are brought back in the next book. Alan Nebelthau does an excellent job narrating. No weird voices or dialects except for maybe the killer who he makes very creepy.

    Story
    "Excessive Detail kills Momentum at Times"
    What did you love best about Left to Die?

    The two lead detective's characters are well-drawn. I want to know more about them and another couple, which is a good sign. What I didn't like was, first, that excessive description at places had me drifting off as the murderer rhapsodized about unnecessary and distracting details. Second, it is annoying that you have to buy the sequel to finish the story that was the purported primary focus of the book. (Having not read the sequel, I can't be sure the story finishes there either, but you get the point.) I'm fine with series and trilogies, but this approach is pretty deceptive.


    What other book might you compare Left to Die to and why?

    This is in the vein of Karen Rose or Karin Slaughter, but not quite up to that standard.


    What aspect of Alan Nebelthau’s performance would you have changed?

    A female narrator, given that it seemed most of the dialogue was women. Of course, perhaps I dozed through parts . . .


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    So Many Killers, Such a Small Town, Who'd Have Thought?

    "Excellent"

    Excellent book. Keeps you guessing till the end and leaves you wanting more. The reader could have been better chosen... not the best choice for female characters, but he pulls it off.

    "Now a fan of Lisa Jackson!"
    What made the experience of listening to Left to Die the most enjoyable?

    I decided to try this author because of the reviews of her books (and because my regular authors do not have any new books to read/hear). I am SO happy that I did! This book kept me wanting more... the story line is excellent and I had to find excuses to listen more (headphones on while cooking... working..... etc...etc....)
    I bought more credits just to start the next book in the series... Great job Ms. Jackson!!

    Great job to the narrator, Alan Nebelthau too! Actually, speaking of the Narrator, Alan Nebelthau sounds a lot like the Narrator, George Guidall of the "Walt Longmire" series of author Craig Johnson? (Another series I listen to - but the third Longmire book really isn't working for me.... we shall see....)

    "Like storyline, not narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Left to Die to be better than the print version?

    Not really. The narrator could have done a better job of reading. At least with the print version you are able to place yourself into the world the author created. It's hard to do that with the way the narrator tells the story.


    What other book might you compare Left to Die to and why?

    I really can't compare this book to any other book because i haven't read one like it before.


    What does Alan Nebelthau bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does not bring anything to the story. I could read the book and imagine the story a lot better than i did while listening to it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't know what the tag line should be. I think I will leave that up to the professionals.

    "Good, But..."

    I enjoyed, but I think it went too extreme especially towards the end. But when you think about it psychos are ridiculous in what they can think up so maybe not as extreme as I thought. I will say there was a great twist in the book that I did not figure out until we found out the actual person was. I do think the narrator got a little tired of it close to the end-maybe he should have taken a break in between--just kidding. Don't think he was a bad as some of the other reviews were.

    I am still debating as to whether I will get the next in the series, but know I am not going to go straight and get it. Going after something calmer first.
