I left a similar comment about another book by another one of my favorite authors. As with that one, because of the way the book is produced, I can't listen and plan to return it. (I love Jeffery Deaver and Lincoln Rhyme, so I'm sure it's great and sure hope it's available on Kindle.) So I gave the story 5 even though I couldn't get through it. So back to the rant - unless a book is meant to be a PLAY, please do not have several 'actors' inject quotes when another person is narrating. It's jarring and just unlistenable. I just finished a book entirely narrated by Edoardo Ballerini and it was great (Speaks the Nightingale, Robert McCammon, book 1, Matthew Corbett series). In some cases, it works to use multiple narrators if there are whole sections coming from the point of view of a certain character and one narrator does all the quotes in a section. Still, my first choice would be Eduardo Ballerini or Colin Firth telling me the whole story....
Producers, please please stop - don't let this annoying style of production become a trend!

This novella/short story is a clever little story. Like most of Jeffrey Deaver's books it is a sold 3 star.
