Excellent as always

As usual a brilliant piece of writing by john sandford and fluently read by Richard Ferrone. As always with these books I was really sad when it finished. Let's hope the next one is out soon.

One of the best Davenport

Excellent is all I can say. The plot was as good as ever and Without giving anything away I was quite sure it was all over 3 quarters of the way through but I was wrong. Only slight niggle was Richard Ferones delivery which did get a bit samey but I would rather he read these than anyone else so I am not complaining.

Finally had it with Richard Ferrone

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - Sandford gets better and better. Ingenious plots, excellent procedural content, brilliantly observed social commentary, an affectionate and cock-eyed evocation of Middle America - everything leavened, best of all, by a wry, dry humour. These books should be much better known than they are.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Ferrone?

Almost anyone - Jeff Harding perhaps, who reads the John Connolly's books, or Dick Hill. Maybe William Roberts, who used to narrate Bill Bryson.<br/>While I love Sandford, I have finally come to end of the road with Richard Ferrone as a narrator. His dialogue is particularly lazy. He has two stock voices: a masculine growl for Davenport, and a kind of high, querulous whine for everyone else, male or female, strong or weak, sympathetic or not - all are effectively indistinguishable if heard out of context. There is no effort at characterisation and he misses much of Sandford's deadpan humour. Everything is reduced to a monotonous trudge that nearly ruins a great thriller.
