Not sure who thought these two narrators would add to this audio book but they were wrong. I think I will need to switch to the Kindle version.

City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It is almost too painful to listen to. Using the kindle edition.
They should have stuck with one of the first two narrators.

Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an army research doctor and secret agent attached to Covert-One, is tapped to lead a team to Wednesday Island, an icy patch of land between the northern coast of Canada and the Earth's magnetic Pole. There, the remains of a mysterious plane were discovered during a routine educational expedition. The plane seems to be a Russian spy plane, and the Russian government secretly revealed to the U.S. president that a lot of very dangerous anthrax may be on board.

The story is good, but the narrator is not. I could also do without the additional sound effects. Paul Michael or Scott Brick should be narrating this book.

Return to James Lee Burke's "timeless, parallel universe" with detective Dave Robicheaux, as he investigates the murders of two women, tries to prove one man's innocence, and faces an enemy unlike any he has ever known. Gothic, dense, brutal, touching, and always compelling, Jolie Blon's Bounce is classic storytelling from a writer who has been dubbed "the Faulkner of crime fiction."

I am enjoying the story, but I am having a hard time understanding what the narrator is saying. I often have to rewind and replay. Mark Hammer's voice is very monotone and his speech is very hard to understand.

While Peter Boyle is a good actor, he is not a good narrator. He is hard to understand at times. Also, the story line is not as well developed as "The Protector".
