A very poor performance

What a disappointment this was. The harpsichord announcing each story is so out of place its grating.
The narrators read these stories so quickly as if they can’t wait to finish. It’s amateurish and low budget. The narration is so poor I skipped some of the stories.Mary Higgins Clark my want to take this off her resume. 👎🏻

A darker set of mysteries but good

I will say the various voice actors who did these stories did an overall good job. Really good work on capturing the mood and theme of their stories. Good delivery and the authors all enunciated and were clear with their words even when they spoke with heavy accents. Unlike the previous book while the harpsichord is back this time it is more subdued and doesn't play over the narrators and isn't so loud and distracting (also it plays in shorter intervals).

I will say overall these stories were a much darker edge. Unlike the previous Malice Domestic 1 which tried to keep to a more light hearted tone. There were comedic stories and moments, and one story was very light in tone, but overall this collection went a little darker and that worked well in this collection. I felt like the stories kept to a theme. Some very solid choices in authors and stories. Some excellent twists I was entertained.

My one complaint is that there was a random ghost story/haunting tale in this collection. It seemed out of place to the theme and style. I like some horror and frights and this one was rather tame. That said I do wonder why it was here and for me it was the weakest story.
