Publisher's Summary

Deserving of Death

Women’s bodies keep turning up, and CJ becomes a person of interest, then the prime suspect, the subject of a manhunt from the Idaho panhandle to Southern Arizona. Bodies continue to drop around him until his deepest fear is pushed upon him and his investigative skills are challenged at the highest level.

Sailing into Death

Find Douglas no matter what, CJ is told. It’s off to Florida where he finds him dead. With the FBI, HLS, Interpol, and who knows who else involved, can CJ and Stella figure out who killed Douglas and what it all has to do with his being born in the middle of the Battle of the Bogside in Derry, Northern Ireland, in 1969? 

Angel of Death

Did Jesper Monnier die at his own hand or was it the young man who the twins hustled on the pool table in Atlantic City, or a jealous boyfriend, or a disgruntled employee of the huge superyacht? Or was it someone else altogether? Are CJ and Stella, now P.I. partners, actually going to get married

Never Surrender to Death

CJ and Stella are on their honeymoon in New Zealand when they find themselves embroiled in the search for a murderer of children. From Auckland and Papatoetoe to National Park on North Island, across Cook Strait to South Island and on down to Christchurch, they pursue both the killer and their honeymoon.

Okay, though a bit predictable

You get what you pay for here for hours of some okay entertainment. The two main characters were a bit cheesy and predictable. The best characters appears briefly. The author seemed to write for a generic audience, but in making his characters a little dimwitted at times came across like assuming the read couldn't figure out what was going on...give cyour readers more credit. Some overused phrases and situations appeared, but there was enough momentum that at least it kept me interested.

The narrator might have taken away from the text. He had to create voices for many characters with tons of dialects, which sometimes led to a southern American sounding like a mix between another Irish character, or a New Zealand character sounding Welsh. The French characters kept pronouncing an "H" like Americans. Very distracting. Some words were pronounced a couple different ways in different areas of the books. The audio quality changed several times and I could hear him bumping the microphone and moving paper. The emphasis on some phrases was so strange sometimes that I would laugh. A dialect coach would be helpful next time. He tried hard and had some really good voices and energy, but I don't think that I could listen to another book read by him.

Great stories, much better than most

These books are well written. Great characters, intriguing and surprisingly complicated stories.
This series is some of the best detective/suspense I've read. I hope more books are added to the series.

Interesting story if not over done but HARD PASS

Overtly sexiest the author can't right strong women! CJ's girlfriend would never apologize for choosing her family, not that she ever should when nothing was wrong with cj. plus the person reading has trouble making the different people sound different. I literally have no idea who is talking until he states who it is. it take all the flow out of the book. the story is not bad on its own if not the same story from every other dective story. I will say I only made it a few hours into the first book and had no desire to listen to another sentence. there is a chance it gets better but not for me!!!

enjoyed but a dialect coach would be a good idea

i enjoyed CJ and Stella as characters. I also liked the narrator for the American characters. His Irish and New Zealand accents had me laughing out loud occasionally. His pronunciation of New Zealand places left me (a Kiwi) scratching my head. ok when it was Stella or CJ but locals mis pronouncing them was a bit off putting. Maybe next time get a dialect coach . i did enjoy them inspite of these glitches.

Decent

The stories are a little basic, "See spot solve Crime". The main character's "Batman" voice is difficult to get used to, but the narrator does a good job with other voices.

Or

Great offer of four books. Narrater has a great voice but his Irish and New Zealand accents are dire.
