Audio edition, narrated by Adam North
8 hours and 3 min
I was excited about this whole series being done in audio, and they were all released recently this December. I originally rated this book 3,5 stars (the ebook), but I've bumped up my rating, since I've read the whole series and have grown to love Prophet and Tom and I feel this first book deserves more than 3,5 stars.
The Hell & High Water series is the only work of Adam North on Audible, so he's a new narrator for me. He does a good job narrating. His voice is deep and rough, so it fitted with the characters.
I liked it, but I didn't quite love it. Or, it's more mixed. I think he does a great Prophet voice, and overall narration. Tom's voice isn't very good, though, in my opinion. He should have had more Southern drawl. North just draws out the words instead of having a drawl to the words. I don't know how to explain it better.
All in all, I enjoyed this audio, and I recommend it.

Although this is very popular series and I enjoyed the audio book much more than the e-book, I'm still not sure I'm going to continue the series. I just didn't connect with either MC or them as a couple, which they are and are not. This may be one of those series where it takes a couple of books to get into the story. As it stands now, I like Tommy and admire him putting up with Prophet's crap, but at some point I was like "man, walk away." I know Prophet is all "tortured soul" but sometimes he is just an a**hole. Also I found the case they were working on kind of convoluted and I was saying "huh?" a lot. Again, this may be because the series has to read as a whole. The narrator does a great job but I wish he had done a Cajun accent for Tom, it would have added a great deal to his character.

If you could sum up Catch a Ghost in three words, what would they be?
Violent, tender and erotic.
What did you like best about this story?
We have two men with many personal demons, some from childhood, some from the many government agencies they have worked for and some from the friends they have lost along the way. They are partnered but neither does partners, but they don't have time to resolve this before the past come back to bite them. Welcome to the rollercoaster.
Have you listened to any of Adam North’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No, but he captured the characters well, they were distinct and he adapted from moments of pure violence to tenderness with aplomb,
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Prophet's panic attack after sending Tom away again.
