    "A great new series"

    This is a new author and narrator for me. “Minus One” is a prequel to the series that tells how Drew Smith started his law career. After graduating from law school, taking the bar examination and looking for a job in his new profession, Drew was working as a hotel concierge. Drew becomes friends with two bellmen, one an Egyptian and the other a Latino, Drew is black. Medhat ends up being a temporary roommate of Drew’s. Just as Drew is sworn into the bar, Medhat is arrested for murder. Drew has his first client. The story takes place in Washington D.C. and Drew is a graduate of Georgetown University School of Law.

    The author is an attorney and started publishing stories as an independent author. The author is a good storyteller and he does an excellent job with description and character development. The suspense builds up throughout the book. The ending provided a surprise after a few unexpected twists in the plot. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author. Zack Imbragno does a good job narrating the story.

    Story
    "Nah - boring don't waste your money."

    Boring, boring, boring - 23 chapters to describe the characters and then a feeble attempt at making a story out of them - don't waste your money. The reader was abismal and could not even pronounce words such as 'naive', at times impossible to understand unless you were from the Deep South of America. The story bar should only have one star, I could not make the bar work, sorry.
