I had to slow the recorder down in order to listen to the book at all.

The good news is that the story is so intriguing and there's so much suspense that I listened to the entire book in spite of the narrator. I would have given this book a five based on the story, how tightly written it is with no drag time, except for the narrator and that the book leave the listener dangling, which I didn't appreciate. I had to come back to Audible to download the second book in this series just to find out what happens.

I am not distracted from the story by the narrator. The story is engaging and keeps you going. It may not become a classic but it is a good read.

I think I probably enjoyed the storyline behind the main plot - which describes the private lives of both Pescoli and Alverez, the two main detective characters - more than the actual plot surrounding the killer which did not raise my pulse rate at all. The narrator performed the story well however the volume of her voice fluctuated between breathy and barely audible to normal and proved frustrating at times. All in all, I'd rate this book as an average thriller and 3/5 stars I gave it reflects this.
Not sure which I liked less, the writing or the reading. An eighth grader could have written this story. And towards the end, I started to wonder if s..Show More »omeone had challenged the author to include 'damn' at least once in every other paragraph. Ridiculous, any cursing should feel natural, this was just weird. The cast of characters was incredibly diverse considering the setting was a small Montana town. As a Montanan, I can say that alone was quite a stretch, as was the mostly female sheriff's department.
As far as the narration--oh my, so very breathless. It made the protagonist seem like a 15 year old nitwit. And someone needs to let the reader know that Montanans--westerners--do not have some kind of modified southern accent.
