What the Critics Say

"Scott Brick seems to own each word. His delivery is thoughtful and relaxed, and it holds the perfect weight and texture to fit the plodding, dispirited detective. A superb interpretation." (AudioFile)

    "Retribution"

    Really enjoyed this mystery. Partly because I listened to it while running in Bradenton/Sarasota area while vacationing there in December. That's of course where the story is set. A greater reason is the author has crafted an intense semi dark tale of intrigue with southern atmosphere and interesting characters without adding offensive gratuitous profanity and lurid sexuality.

    "Retribution"

    I like all the Fonseca mysteries. This one was quite good - plus I like having "past" people show up again.

    "Introspective and Compelling"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is an excellent audio book. The dual plot lines are told well, with individual voices and points of view. The characters are described to make their actions believable and interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character, Lew Fonesca, is a former investigator crippled by depression. He only gets pulled into other people's problems out of loyalty. The author has a good understanding of depression, so Lew's pessimistic introspection is authentic.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick is a consistently excellent narrator. He gives the different voices life and distinction.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book in several sittings, but it would have been excellent all at once. The only benefit of taking breaks is a chance to think about the several layers of the story.
