Joe Kenda investigated 387 murder cases during his 23 years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and solved almost all of them. And he is ready to detail the cases that are too gruesome to air on television, cases that still haunt him, and the few cases where the killer got away. These cases are horrifyingly real, and the detail is so mesmerizing you won't be able to turn it off.

I could listen to Joe Kenda talk all day. This book does tell of a lot of really horrible cases he worked but
when he is talking about his kids and wife and his "2 good day".it's really wonderful. I think he could be
Audible's next great narrator.

Harper Harlow can see and talk to ghosts. She's built a business out of helping souls crossover, and even though the cases sometimes go wonky, she's good at what she does. Jared Monroe wants to be a big city detective in a large market. Instead, he's forced to take a job in the small community of Whisper Cove until the right position opens up. He doesn't believe in ghosts, and yet he can't seem to stay away from Harper. These two are on a collision course for each other, but danger is in the way.

I had read some previous reviews saying that the narrator was awful...should have heeded the warning. I could only listen to a small portion of this book because the narrator was painful to listen to. I can't rate the story because I couldn't continue listening to the book.

In Halo, Georgia, folks know Cherry Tucker as big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than buckshot rips from a ten gauge - but commissions are scarce. So when the well-heeled Branson family wants to memorialize their murdered son in a coffin portrait, Cherry scrambles to win their patronage from her small town rival. As the clock ticks toward the deadline, Cherry faces more trouble than just a controversial subject.

What disappointed you about Portrait of a Dead Guy?

The main character is weak. If she would have stood up for herself it would have been a better read.

Would you ever listen to anything by Larissa Reinhart again?

Probably not. I downloaded the 2nd book in series so I'll listen to it too
since I already have it.

Would you be willing to try another one of Erin Clark’s performances?

Probably not. The horrible Southern accent she is doing is hard to listen to.
By the way, I am from Georgia...I know a Southern accent.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Hated that I wasted my money and time. None of the characters have any redeeming qualities.

Any additional comments?

The author needs to find another line of work.
