In the beginning I was thinking I'd found a great new author for my collection. A strong main character and a good plot line in the first few chapters..Show More » soon devolved into an overly detailed mess. The constant back and forth inside the mind of the female protagonist soon became tiring. As did the moody non-communicative 'mentor' Jack. The protagonists patience with and submission to this character became tiresome as well. If three or four hours had been eliminated from this selection this might have been an excellent listen. As it was, it became a tiresome slog through the underbelly of criminal society. Ms. Armstrong is a talented writer and the book was well narrated. Hopefully her next mystery book will avoid the short comings of Exit Strategy.
