Exciting and also informative. I had a hard time stopping when I needed to do something. Very exciting ending.

I kept thinking that it was just my device but it isn't. I even tried restarting my device. No joy. I have never had a Mr. Engene narration have this scratchy background but it is very disconcerting.

The narrator was very good. The story was slow and too sexually graphic for our taste. I guess I prefer Jance's other series.

I truly enjoyed the Papago stories intertwined with the main story. Excellent character development and rich with local details.
Way too sexually descriptive in places. Couldn't finish it. It began as an anthology of Southwestern
Native American stories but it became too graphic.
Would you try another book from J. A. Jance and/or Gene Engene?
What does Gene Engene bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
easy to listen to, speaks clearly. He saves the book
Any additional comments?
Not as good as her other books, took forever to get INTO the book, once I did it was interesting but a lot of flashbacks- so you have to listen carefully to follow.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
J A Jance is a great writer and this book was no exception. The story is great, full of mystery and suspense. However, the narration ruined it. The last few hours was almost intolerable but I stuck it out.
What didn’t you like about Gene Engene’s performance?
I will put this narrator on my list of ' Don't listen'. The female characters were all portrayed as whiny and/or angry, even when the situation did not call for that particular emotion. There were scratchy background noises that were extremely distracting.
Was Hour of the Hunter worth the listening time?
I will continue to read or listen to this author's books, but will definitely read, rather than listen to, any that have Gene Engene as narrator.
I loved this book, but am so happy to have this particular narrator back reading a j.a.jance novel. Way to go.
