Kept my interest from start to finish.

I was given a copy of this audiobook at my request and am voluntarily leaving this review.  I liked how the story flowed. It was a bit confusing at times because of the poetry, but overall, the story captured my interest and imagination throughout. The narrator enunciated the words clearly, and his voice was easy to listen to.

Detective story with colorful writing - good read!

*This book was given to me by the author at my request, and I provided this voluntary review.* 4.5/5 I was impressed by this book. The speedy read through and the easy to follow plotline kept me engaged. I personally think it's not that easy to have two separate main POV's from a hero and villain and have it work. Gamble does this flawlessly; not only do I relate to the main character, but he also made me relate and feel for the villain in this story too. Well done. My only gripe with this story is that its too damn short!! I wish Gamble would have fleshed out the ideas a little more, I wanted more on both accounts - MC and villain. Gamble does an excellent job painting each scene as if it were a canvas and we are absorbing it. I feel that we havent seen the last of Mitch Perry, and I would be interested in reading more stories from Gamble. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

OK

Willow Down. . An OK read. The story didn't grip me, but it was easy to finish it. The murder mystery was not believable to me. A light read. Narration is good, it is clear and concise. I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this review.

Contemplative Detective with Poetry & Art

I am still not sure what to think about this book. I love mysteries and detective fiction. The idea of having poetry and art with the book sounded intriguing... but I'm not sure it all quite fit together. I enjoyed the book overall. I liked the "villain" of the book best, and enjoyed the author's descriptions of how he carried out the murders and his motivation. The villain and his actions were the most interesting and compelling portions of the book. The detective was a nice man who was a bit bland but enjoyable. The author does not use dialog to further the story, but instead relies on "he told me that..." and other elliptical means of communicating new information. Because of this lack of direct interaction, everything occurs in first person in the detective's mind (and in third person in the murderer's actions). Personally, I prefer finding things out in dialog, but the detective is a contemplative person, hence the poetry and meditations on various spiritual topics. I'm sure that musing about the soul and its presence or absence is appropriate after several murders... but it didn't quite fit together for me. I received this audiobook for free with the stipulation that I write a review for it. (Except that my promo code didn't work so I paid for it anyway!).

not what I was expecting

The narration of the book was excellent. The style of writing was different from what I prefer. The story starts out with the detective in first person then goes into great details of the killer in third person. Poems, quotes and song are thrown in. I just couldn't get into the flow of the book. I was given this free audiobook copy at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
