"Weaving culture, history and suspense, Black scores again." (Publishers Weekly)
I've read five or six of Cara Black's books; this is the first audio recording I've chosen. I will continue to read Black, but I won't listen to Montbertrand. I may have underrated the story, but it's only because I couldn't finish the audiobook.
Haven't finished it yet -- I have the book in my library and will read it the old-fashioned way.
Not if she tries to alter her voice for different characters. She just doesn't know how to do it without making all of them sound the same, sort of drugged and sleepy. Better narrators make it easy to distinguish one character from another. She'd have been better off just using her regular voice throughout.
Don't know yet.
