Jonathan Caine is a true master of the universe - a currency wizard with a trophy wife, a penthouse condo with a view of the Statue of Liberty, and the desire for more - when his world comes crashing down, spiraling him into a relentless fall from grace. Devastated, Jonathan returns to his hometown to care for his ailing father and attend his 25th high school reunion, where he becomes reacquainted with former prom queen Jacqueline Williams. Back in the day, Jackie didn't even know Jonathan existed.

Great Story. But...

The story kept me engaged throughout. The Narator did a good job of conveying it. Maybe he had a cold, or the mic was too close but the entire naration is punctuated by wheezing, breathing, swallowing, and various other sounds of the nose and throat that have no place in a professional production. Mike Charzuk has produced many great titles for Audible that I have thoroughly enjoyed, but he kinda dropped the ball on this one. Not a hater here, but clean it up please.
