Jason and Vanessa have returned with a case that will test their faith and their partnership.
The homeless of San Antonio are dying, but apparently from natural causes. Captain Patton is ordered to make sure these cases are not homicide, so he gets with Lieutenant Banks, and requests her best detectives.
Jason will end up doing something that tests his wife's strength while Vanessa will have to pass a test of her own.
Who will survive and who won't?
And who will get a dose of Lethal Injection?

Fair story. Narrator was just NOT Jason.
Why in the world did the author change narrators? I listened to the last four and came to hear the narrator as THE Jason Strong. The change is rather jarring and I just couldn't get into it. Reminded me of the time the Travis MacGee series changed narrators. Yuk!
Nothing against Mr. Bennington. Some people seem to like him. But listen to the sample first if you are a fan of the series. It's just not the same.
When you find a good narrator for a series...stick with him.
The action builds rapidly from the beginning. The dialogue between the characters sounds like what you would expect to hear when people are speaking.
I found the length of the story at 2.5 hours to fit perfectly with the material. The producer added a sound effect between setting changes and I really liked that touch. I wish audible would encourage more use of producer imagination.
I have followed Joshua's work and really like his voice. His side effect sighs etc. are well timed. The thing I like best is his talent is growing rapidly with each project. I will keep my eyes posted for new projects. He was good at first and now he is rally good.I would recommend that the listeners take this book out for a test ride.
CLEAN,MYSTERY DETECTIVE STORY
Yes, we did not know who the killer was until the very end when he almost killed Detective Strong
Joshua Bennington is a young and up coming narrator who can do so many different voices, I can't believe it is the same narrator. I love his books.
A killer try,s to clean up the homeless.
This was another Detective Jason Strong audio book and I have liked them all. The narrator did a great job with the voices and I hope he will do more of these in the future.
Yes! The Narration by Joshua Bennington was at least as good as the story. It took me back to the early 50s, when I was reading "I the jury" by Mickey Spillane.
Of course, When the detective was under cover and got injected.
I would listen to Lethal Injection again along with the rest of the series. It is an audio tape that I can play when my grand children are with me as we drive to the beach. They are 12 and 13 and don't need to hear foul langue or sex scenes.
I fell in love with Dalglish's prologues or beginnings of his books, they set the tone of the rest of the book.
Joshua Bennington did another book of Dalglish's and it was also very good. Dalglish chose a gifted narrator for his books. I believe that has made a difference with his audiobooks.
This and the other books in his series are highly recommended. They are suspenseful and you don't know "who done it" till the end
I would listen to lethal Injection again because it was so entertaining and short, only a few hours. The narrator gave it that mystic quality that the old radio stories had.
This book was similar to other Detective Jason Strong books and I have liked all of his stories.
I have listened to a few other books narrated by Joshua Bennington and have liked them all. He brings the characters to life with his different voices for each character.
I did not give this book a 5 star rating only because it was very much like the other Jason Strong books I have read or heard. I did give the narrator a 5 star rating because he made the audio book out standing..
The audio book gave me a more vivid picture of the characters in my mind. I could almost see them. And the narrator gave the story a mystery feeling.
I liked some of his other books as well. Like "Cruel Deception". Basically the same type of story. I always like who done it.s.
I gave this audio book a 5 star review because the narrator was so talented. He gave the book the same feeling I got from hearing the mystery stories over the radio as a child. Brought back memories.
YES...the audio book was much more entertaining. The narrator gave the characters more life and the story took on more charm.
The other books that come to mind would be "For My Brother" and "Cruel Deception" all done by the same reader.
I liked all the characters as preformed by Mr. Bennington. No one stands out in my mind but as a group they were all done well. They seems to each have their own personality.
I loved this book as well as most of John Dalglish's books. The narrator also did a great job with the characters.
Joshua Bennington made the characters seems alive and his voice gave them a bit of mystery at times.
Well, it can only be Detective Jason Strong. It was nice that Jason did not use any bad language. I like all of John Dalglish's books because of that.
Mr. Dalglish has gotten a good reader this time and I hope he is used in the future. I was delighted with Mr. Bennington"s voice and his reading of "Lethal Injection".
This audio book was enjoyable for me and I gave it a five star review!
I already have. One time driving to the beach and again on the way home. It was entertaining.
The two detectives, since the story evolves around them. The inter plays between Venessa and Jason help make the story more enjoyable and not just another mystery story.
Joshua Bennington brought the character to life with his different voices. I have a different image of the characters after hearing the voices he give them. Makes the book a lot more entertaining.
These books that are the Jason Strong series could be a TV series. Each book a different episode
I would recommend the audio book for anyone who likes detective stories without graphic sex or bad language.and just wants to lay back and listen.
