Hated the performance. The last one was so good.

Whoever directed this one needs to check the previous work for performance continuity. hated it.

2nd book I tried by him, wanted to like it but....

What disappointed you about Stalking the Angel?

It just couldn't hold my attention.

Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Crais again?

Maybe if it was a narrator I love.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His sentences seemed to run together, pace or speed. I am not sure it just couldn't keep me interested.

Any additional comments?

I may try it again, not sure.

SARCASTIC AND ANNOYING

I endured this book,(I'm not a quitter).The narrator was just not macho enough to make the story believable. And like the other characters I was annoyed by the silly comments from Elvis...
