This might just be the worst audio book of the year. The "reader" repeats lines, stumbles on words, shuffles pages and pauses in the middle of a sentence to turn the page. A total amateur production. Was the book any good? Can't say because it was impossible to finish this.

The reader sounded like he was drunk or about to fall asleep. Maybe he was. Maybe he did. That would explain why there are big pieces of the story missing. Purhaps he just woke up, opened the book, and started reading where the empty Jack Daniels bottle had propped the pages open. It doesn't really matter. Frail Ashley, the main character, was so maddeningly passive and ineffective at every turn of the plot that I came to loathe him. He did everything but have the vapors. There were times when the book came quite close to seeming like an expression of internalized homophobia and gay stereotypes. It is unfortunate that while there are a lot of good gay mystery and suspense books written, somehow Here and Audible offered this to us. By the way, what does the word trilogy in the title refer to?

I was not pleased with this book from the very outset. The editing was very poor and the narrator (something I know that we have to give a little time to get used to), wasn't animated at all and his errors (we all make them), were not edited out!). It made the storyline a bit tiresome and I did not finish the book. Have actually erased it from my iPod.

I wonder if the narrator has a shadow of a lisp; he trips over his words; yawns during reading and stumbles over words. Also, one can hear background noises and the pages turning!!! This could be forgiven - but the story is so jumpy it seems as if chunks of narrative are missing. The storyline jumps all over the place and is terribly confusing. Don't bother with this audiobook.
