OK, They warn you in the beginning, I wasn't listening! Hardcore is Hardcore no matter the format. 90% of the stories were enjoyable, scary, funny or just good Horror. The other 10% were SO out of my league. I finally just skipped a few when the violence, language or disgusting sexual portrayal was too much. My review is based on the majority of the stories - the 90% I read. Some of these stories were really, really good! The book is worth reading, just be prepared. The narrator, Joe Hempel, did a great job. I was gifted this book via Audiobook Boom in exchange for an unbiased review.

Starting with the title I had a little trouble at the start figuring out Who was Who and WHY. But once I did I enjoyed the story and fast moving pace. A little twist in the plot and we are hooked for Book 2. The characters were well developed. The narration was very good and easy to listen to.

There was more steamy sex than mystery. When a book is touted as a mystery and the FBI & investigative reporter are there to uncover and stop the bad guy I don't expect or want GRAPHIC sexual exploits. Sorry, but while I expect a blooming romance to be part of the book, I was looking forward to a mystery. I was gifted this good via Audiobook Boom in exchange for an unbiased review.

This book is a lot more than "A Ghost Story". Family - past, present & future is a complicated "animal" with many secrets and every member may have a different feel and recollection of the same past. Often we do the wrong thing for the right reason. I enjoyed this book and think there will be a #2. The narrator did a very good job. Just remember, you can't judge a book by it's cover!

P.I. Harmon Ulrich is a fantastic character! What a hoot. Can't wait to be with him again. Creative and humorous. The story was entertaining and a seamless read. The narrator Jake Urry did a wonderful job. I really enjoyed this book and will wait in line for book #2.

I enjoyed the story and the dialog between the characters which was very natural and down to earth. Farfetched but fun. The narrator did a good job when in conversation mode but a real disappointment otherwise. Narrators for audible books are ACTORS. Great and even good actors make the story come alive. Mr. Roberts did good when in character voice but just READ the words when narrating.

I am not sure what to say. I never read the original book and all Dostoyevsky's books have always intimidated me. I enjoyed the book, performance and story but always in the back of my mind was that I was "cheating" with Cliff Notes! The language and pace was in period mode and I will read the second book. Maybe this book was a good way to ease into the REAL thing. I was gifted this book by audioboom in exchange for an unbiased review.

This was an insightful book. A famous justice was quoted as saying "It is better that 100 guilty men go free than one innocent man to be convicted" So true, and between Murphy's Law and the greed of politics six lives were STOLEN.

Can't wait till the second installment. The book was fun and the characters a hoot. More of a novella than a book. I enjoyed the family involved and the story.
