Former LAPD lieutenant Peter Decker is relishing the quiet and slow pace of his new job with the Greenbury police department. The work is low stress and engaging, and it's been almost a year since the last murder in this sleepy upstate New York town. Then the body of a nude man is found deep within the woods, shattering Decker's peace. The death appears to be a suicide - a single shot to the head, the gun by his side. But until the coroner's ruling, the scene must be treated as a suspicious crime.

Long time listener of this series. This book failed to grasp my interest. Didn't seem to be as well written/edited as previous books.
The narrator's voice is irritating. Could hear the saliva in his mouth every time he took a breath. Couldn't listen with earbuds in.
I'll probably get the next book in the series, but not if the same narrator is reading.
