Definately a more perfect book!

This is definitely a good listen. Fast paced and there are more twists and turns than your best roller coaster. If you want a book to take your mind off that long drive to the office or grandma’s house, this will fill the bill.

Imperfect Hero

I love that Beau makes mistakes, falls and keeps going. Far from perfect but able to keep going and get better.

good story not so much for narrator

Narrator needs to work on accents. How many people in Seattle have thick southern accents?

J P Does it again!

Where does A More Perfect Union rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

While some are better the others, the JP Beaumont series has to rank in my top 100 listens. I particularly enjoyed this one. If you're feeling like an easy laid back listen that is entertaining with a bit of mystery, suspense to and sex to give it just enough spice then this series is for you. I usually have a JP Beaumont, in between my other reads to clean and refresh my palate. Just keep coming JP.........

Who was your favorite character and why?

No other than JP himself. He's so laconic. I'm a bit concerned about the enlarged liver, though! Does this means he has to give up drinking soon?

Have you listened to any of Gene Engene’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Gene is JP. I could not imagine anyone else attempting JP.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Pretty well. I think I only had one break.

Any additional comments?

J A Jance, keep them coming forever. I'll never tire of JP Beaumont.

Other voices

The narrator's main voice was OK but the secondary voices were horrible.
The story seems to be set more towards the 70+ crowd. My 73 year old mom said she really liked the book. We have always liked the same thriller and who did it stories. This one seems to be a generation apart. Won't listen to that narrator again. Will look at other authors
