Likeable characters

The books I have listened to by Steve Hamilton have all kept me entertained and wanting to hear more. Not all authors translate so well to audio and no doubt the narrator seals the deal with his skillful vocal talent.

Ice run a bit icy

This book is not as good as the prior five Alex McKnight mysteries that I’ve had the privilege of reading. I’m about to start the next one in the series and hopefully it will be better.

Ridiculous narration ruins the story!

What did you like about this audiobook?

I like the McKnight series because the plots are fairly interesting and the characters are well developed.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

The narration was atrocious! His feigned upper peninsula accent was terrible, but far worse was the insulting way he represented the Indians in the story! He must have listened the the Lone Ranger and Tonto one too many times, because he represented the Indians as simpletons - just terrible!

How many beatings can Alex take?

I am not sure who takes the worst beatings - Alex, the stories main character, or the listener because of the narration. This book devolves into lots of cursing and a weird love interest who is so vile that no chemistry between the reader and the woman ever develops. The new narrator, who should have been booted after the "Blood is the Sky" intro is as bad as ever destroying the voice of Leon, Alex's former, or present partner transforming him from a very likeable character, and one in which Steve Hamilton has been able to develop a great deal of good chemistry between Alex and audience to just a strange extra that feeds Alex information and guns, which Alex always looses just before being beaten horribly. I am very sad at what became of a great series.
