Would you try another book from Mike Bond and/or Luke Daniels?

no

What was most disappointing about Mike Bond’s story?

He forgot to write the story just a soapbox for his political views. If that is what I wanted would have went to another type book

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His sing song voice was very distracting

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Saving Paradise?

All his soapbox grandstanding

Any additional comments?

Won't buy any more of his books and if it hadn't been so cheap I would have returned it

The sleek high-rises of Park Avenue make Frank Clemons uneasy. The former Atlanta homicide detective came to New York after a sickening murder case soured him on the South, but despite the glitz and excitement of his new surroundings and the beauty of the woman he shares them with, the city makes his skin crawl. Now a private eye, he is only at ease in the city's darker corners, among the whores, gamblers, and pimps who call Eighth Avenue home. That affinity for the socially isolated is what draws him to the case of Hannah Karlsberg, an elderly seamstress who deserved a better death than she got.

What would have made The Dead of Winter better?

I did not get thru enough to know what would have made it better. I got thru one chapter and decided this was a waste of my time

What could Lee Collins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I just did not like the story so it did not catch my interest enough to actually find out what the story was

How could the performance have been better?

This book couldn't have been helped by performer

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Dead of Winter?

Didn't listen long enough to find out
