    "Simplistic mystery"

    This is a mystery with few surprises and little to interest the reader. The narrator's voices are a bit over the top and more distracting than entertaining.

    "Missing the 's'"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on Bank Street to be better than the print version?

    Not this particular one


    Any additional comments?

    I love Victoria Thompson's books, and the narration for this was lovely, but something happened to a majority of the S's in the audio. They are cut off at the end of words, and most of them are missing (mithing) from many other words, and it makes my brain stumble over the story. Strange editing somewhere.

    Story
    "I love this Series"
    Would you listen to Murder on Bank Street again? Why?

    Yes, I love this series & in time would read it. I wouldn't listen to it. I thought the narration was horrible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters in this series are fun, with good depth, & a little nerve racking. Those traits make for a good story.


    What didn’t you like about Suzanne Toren’s performance?

    It was too slow. Her diction was weird. I listen to a lot of audio books and this was one of the worst narrations I heard. I read all the books in this series up to this one because all but one weren't offered on Audible. I have fallen in love with this series and I hope to listen to the rest but if they are all like this I will probably read them instead.
