Publisher's Summary

Life has become increasingly complicated for San Francisco Inspector Peyton Brooks. With a past murder suspect living in the spare bedroom, an abusive receptionist bunking on the couch, an ex-boyfriend about to marry another woman, and her own mother in a relationship with a bigot, Peyton doesn't think her life can get much more difficult.

Until her partner of eight years is suspected of murder.

With a serial killer still on the loose in the city, Peyton must find a way to keep Marco from winding up in prison himself.

Can't wait for the next one

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder in the Presidio to be better than the print version?

I love the audio version because it creates a special atmosphere for the whole story that I would miss in the print version. I have an image in my head for each character because of the narrator's performance. I'm dying to know what happens next, but I won't read the following book, I'd much rather listen to it.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. There are many interesting story lines in this book. Most of all I have my own theories about the bad guy and I love how the characters' personal lives get more and more complex.

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

Yes. I love how she narrates all of Peyton Brooks mysteries. She has great timing for all the dialogue and is an excellent performer. It's not just about reading clearly and with a good voice, you have to engage the listener and she definitely does that.

Any additional comments?

Get the audio version of this series and I guarantee that the experience will be completely different and more exciting. Can't wait for the next book!

KEEP THEM COMING!

It doesn't get any better than this. I truly love these characters. I hate it when the audiobook ends. I can't wait for the next one. Great crime. Resolution of older story lines. Fabulous unrequited love and romance. Go Peyton! Jake, Marco, Marco's family, the cops at the precinct.... It's a listeners dream of a series. I'm hooked.

An Awesome Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it very entertaining. The Janitor still has Peyton and Macro running circles. His latest crime will change Peyton's and Marco's lives forever and they're still no closer to discovering his identity. This suspense filled plot will keep you listen, but the realistic characters will make you love it. This combination of author and narrator is awesome. I can hardly wait to start the next book.

Peyton is the target this time...

Volume 6 in Peyton Brooks' Mysteries will definitely keep you glued to the pages (or to your player, as it was in my case:))...

The plot is extremely fast and intense, with Janitor recreating his own crimes, killing again using methods he already used once. What very soon becomes obvious - first to Marco, then to others - is that it's Peyton that the serial killer is really after this time.... So while trying to solve the case together with his partner, Marco has to also act as her secret bodyguard. But that's not an easy task, considering her passionate, independent character and his feelings for her...

What I like best about this installment in the series is that the plot, intense as it is, does not overshadow the emotional side of the story - Marco's feelings towards Peyton, his frustration and determination to keep her alive, but also her slow realization of how important Marco is for her. I think this emotional awakening on her part is excellently done by Ms Hamilton.

Considering the whole series, I would say this is the best part so far - the plot is developing very fast and yet smoothly, with enough twists and surprises to keep your interest in the crime, and at the same time allowing you to feel the emotional turmoil of the characters' personal lives.

As for the narration by Ms Hazen, it's impeccable - the pace is right, the interpretation of individual characters very good and the emotions conveyed ringing true.
