The author presents a second set of three short stories of fictional private detective Alexander Steele. The predominant setting for most of these stories is the city of Philadelphia and the surrounding area.
"The Deadly Gamble"
"Death on the Delaware"
"The Deadly Trio"
I had a tough time getting through this book due to the poor narration sound. As for the story itself, I just didn't enjoy it. I actually got bored. I wish both author and narrator the best with other tries and experience.
This is a collection of short stories featuring Alexander Steele- a night club owner who solves cases on the side. The stories are interesting- although it's hard to figure out who-done-it because Steele seems to have a lot more background knowledge than the readers. There isn't a huge amount of character development- but that's to be expected in a short story. I did like that these were quick stories- so you could listen to a whole story in an hour or two.
My biggest complaint about this audiobook isn't the book itself- but the recording. The narrator doesn't have a wide range of voices- and the recording quality itself seems pretty low. I listened to it on headphones so I was able to understand it- but I think listening in a car might be difficult. All in all- it's an interesting collection of stories- but the narration could use a little improvement.
This is a nice, short book. The short mystery will keep you occupied and entertained, and is the perfect length and keep you entertain during your commute.
