    Story
    "Okay for a first novel"

    We will try another. There are things we didn't like -- he doesn't seem to have a good grasp on whether the marriage is okay or not -- confusing -- and a bit repetitious -- but a decent yarn for this first try. I want to love this character!

    "Meet A Real Person"

    When I listen to an audio bookI want it to be a doorway from my world to the world of the book. This book was such a doorway, Therefore It can get no less than a five because I went to that world.

    "Should come with a warning for adult content"
    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "Pretty good. It had a hard act to follow."

    I enjoyed this book. I just finished listening to the Walt Llongmire series, so it was a hard act to follow, but it did a good job. I think if it had a little more humour in it. It would have been better!

    "A Conspiracy Uncovered"

    A refreshing change of pace from the usual murders in the city. Love the descriptive narration. The narrator brought the characters to life. Can hardly wait to read the next book in the series.

    "Loved it!"

    This is a great book! I loved the character of Joe Pickett and the plot really kept me guessing and interested. This story worked on all levels. The mystery, the family sub-plot and the Wyoming setting were all terrific. I highly recomend it. I can't wait to get the next book in the series.

    "Excellent"

    I'm going to read all the books in the series. I started with one on the middle and was so impressed, I decided I needed to read them all. Really impressed.

    "Yeah. Great new series for me."

    Hoping for something good to listen too while waiting on the next Longmire book. This is it. Can't wait to read next one.
