Publisher's Summary

In this gripping novel, Lou Boldt is back and entering dark territory.

A shipping container washed ashore leads Seattle television news anchor Stevie McNeal and reporter friend Melissa on the trail of a scam involving the importation of illegal aliens. A career stepping-stone for McNeal, the investigation puts her at cross-purposes with the Seattle Police Department's Lou Boldt and Sergeant John LaMoia.

When Melissa disappears, perhaps at the hands of the Chinese Triad, McNeal turns from foe to ally and teams up with the detectives on an investigation that takes them from Seattle's docklands to the offices of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

    "The First Victim (Unabridged)"

    I have just listended to The First Victim narrated by Scott Rosema. Unfortunately I dont think that he is aware of what he is reading. He reads much too fast with no apparent thought to the content. This makes it difficult to follow the story, which probably deserves better rating, but since the narrators very poor perfermance makes it difficult to follow the story, I can only rate it 2 stars. I will from now on make sure to avoid any book narrated by Scott Rosema.

    "Unfortunate Reading"

    I enjoy Ridley Pearson novels and have several in my listening library. However, this one - while a good story - is so poorly performed by Scott Rosema - it's nearly impossible to listen to and follow. He reads far too fast and does not pronounce words in any understandable form. I have to rewind constantly to pick up on important details. Disappointing indeed.

    Any additional comments?

    Sadly I think I might have enjoyed the book more and found the story more engaging if I had not been so distracted by the reader...ugh! I have come to like this series a great deal and the previous readers were quite engaging. Not so much this time. Way too much emphasis was put on changing voices for the characters. When I listen to a book I am not expecting or wanting a play without a stage. I am looking for a good solid reader with tone and a love for the story. This time it missed the mark.
