I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this audio book. I suspected a few different people during the course of the book, but was not able to guess who the perpetrator was until it was revealed. Looking forward to more from this author!

The story line was decent but the narration was difficult to endure. The predictably choppy words did not make for a pleasant listening experience. I'm not sure I will do an audio version of the next book in the series, for that reason.
