This Novel Didn't Quite Come Together for Me

The narrator has a pleasant vocal quality overall, with excellent articulation and diction. I am always surprised by the stylistic differences between text narration and acting for other media--it always take me a few minutes to adjust to the relative neutrality of text narration, when I expect something more emotive or demonstrative.

In regard to the actual novel, I thought the narrative voice moved inconsistently between restricted and unrestricted narration. Also, the tone of the piece never seemed to settle--is this noir, is this mob/Mafia fiction, is it modern espionage? I'm afraid that, for me, the novel never quite gelled as a result.
