Good First Read For Me By This Author

I liked the characters, Ty, Locke, and Malik. Backgrounds were interesting and unusual. The first two-thirds of the book were very good but last third lagged in the capture of the killer.

Will definitely read another before a final judgment.

Excellent!

When a college basketball coach in a small Minnesota town discovers a pedophile ring and tries to bring it to light, the trouble that follows for him is devastating. By the time we get to the bottom of it many people die. Ty and Ryan come to town to help, and things get interesting. Sean Black is one of my new favorites. Each story seems to stand well on its own. I’ve read #1 and #5 so far and haven’t had any problems following. I’ll be looking for more in this series. 5 stars.

unexpected twists

Mysteries are among my favorite genres of fiction. When I first started listening to this book for some reason I had the sense that it was going to be predictable but it certainly wasn't. I recommend it highly not only because it's a good mystery and well written but because it raised awareness of how people take terrible situations and use them for their monetary gain. It also brought out how shallow some public displays of sadness can be which though an avenue for expressing grief and outrage sometimes allow people who ignored warning signs that something is wrong to feel better.

The Innocent

Not my usual type of book, but when I saw it was narrated by Grant Pennington I had to listen to it. He is one of my favorite narrators. I'm glad I did listen to this audible book. It has twists and turns that take you by surprise. The Innocent is well written and thought out. Highly recommend this audible!

As I said Grant Pennington is one of my favorite narrators. His voice is pleasant to listen to with a wide variety of voices and emotions used gives the listener an excellent experience while listening. He has a way of bringing you right into the story

I recieved this audible from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review

Come back Jeff - please!

Oh dear. A change in narrator wasn't a change for the better. I've enjoyed this series up to know, but no more for me.

Disappointing narration

Maybe we become spoiled by the superb narrations of Jeff Harding. In comparison, this potentially enjoyable commuting companion of a book was hard work to listen to - distractingly poorly read. I'll avoid the name in future.
