Editorial Reviews

Crime novelist E. R. Brown takes you to the not-so-mean streets of Canada in this lively potboiler about a profitable marijuana-growing operation in suburban Vancouver. Almost Criminal thrives on the journalistic detail it brings to a suburban pocket of the Canadian drug industry, but the story really lights up when it pairs an ultra-successful grower of boutique marijuana with his smart but rudderless young protégé. Brown’s balancing of his gritty, offbeat thriller with an insightful coming-of-age drama makes this crime novel special. Narrator Brandon Massey brings clarity and a wry energy to his reading of Brown’s first novel.

Publisher's Summary

Charming, wealthy Randle Kennedy has a secret: he's British Columbia’s most prolific producer of boutique marijuana. He’s developed strains of B.C. Bud to please the most sophisticated palates and produce any desired effect, from a light contemplative buzz to the most mind-warping stone. His medical varieties offer relief for conditions ranging from cancer to Alzheimer's disease. Come legalization, he'll be the first on the market with marijuana's answer to single-malt Scotch.
Until that day, he runs a tight operation with terrorist-cell security.Tate MacLane is brilliant, miserable, and broke. Since graduating from high school at age 14, he's failed at university, failed to support his family, failed at everything except making a superb caffe latte.
Randle wants a fresh face to front his transactions. Tate desperately needs a mentor and yearns for respect. And money ...Then there are the bikers, the muscle with the cross-border connections that Randle needs to bring his product to the American market. Soon Tate finds out that it's harder to get out of the business than to get in.

Robot narrator

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I could not listen to this book as the narrator sounded like a robot who had difficulty reading.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have used a narrator who can read fluently and express human emotion.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

In all ways.

Was Almost Criminal worth the listening time?

I did not listen for long as I could not bear it.

Any additional comments?

It sounds like it might be a good story but I recommend you get the regular book version. Unless you have a robot fetish.
