Possibly the worst book Child has ever written

A female FBI agent in a long-term relationship with a drug-dealing alcoholic philanderer is the first leap. She is sent to southern Louisiana to solve a murder. As she is leaving the New Orleans airport she heads into the bayou, where she encounters rolling hills. I lived in southern LA for many moons. It is possibly the flattest land I have ever seen. The author continues to describe a landscape that does not describe ANY part of the bayou I have ever been to. She nearly gets herself attacked by an alligator when she runs off the road in the bayou. The story goes downhill from here, no really, I am not exaggerating. I have read almost everything written by PW Child and Child/Lincoln. This book was a disappointment for me. I was looking forward to the series, murder mysteries in the bayou, what could be better two things I enjoy together, what a treat.

The editing is HORRIBLE. It sounds like the audiobook was made on the cheap and not edited at all.

The narrator sounds like what we, in the South, call a 'Bubba' who can barely read, has marbles in his mouth, and certainly did not read the book prior to his pitiful attempt at narration.

Don't waste your time or money on this audiobook.

This book should get negative stars.

Needs editing

The story is OK. However, if poorly edited material irritate the crap out of you, don't listen to this. In many places through the entire book there are places where the author had errors and the editors didn't catch the places needing correction. Really irritating.

This narrator made this book difficult to listen to

This book would have been good if the narration had been edited, it was very difficult to listen to. He made numerous mistakes especially towards the end he repeated himself several times and stumbled over words and had to begin the sentence again. I have never experienced this before

Interesting

Andrea is to go investigate a murder, a socialite in Louisiana welcome her into her home, she has secrets. As does Louisiana the swamp the people. Good mystery and keeps you guessing the outcome. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
