Straight arrow lawman Josh Cummings retrieves over a million dollars from a snow filled gorge…and keeps it. As he relates his most interesting cases from 50-plus years in law enforcement to two young reporters, Steve Simon and George Smitts, he conveniently leaves this part out.
Each chapter is a complete story running the gamut from dark comedy to crime thriller. The listener gets a glimpse of Josh’s inner thoughts as he deals with people of great wealth while struggling to make do on an underpaid public-servants salary.
Unlike Tana French or Louise Penny, this author does not capture males at all. I knew I was in trouble when I heard one guy describing another guy as "ruggedly handsome." Ummmm...not even close.
Sadly, it was made even worse by the narration, which was soap opera level overwrought and trapped in the all to well known problem of the female narrator trying to capture guys by talking slow and deep, and ending up making them sound stupid.
With over 800 audiobook listens, I do not think I have found a more disappointing download. The best I can compare it to is a James Patterson book read by an overacting female Jim Carrey.
