Great set of stories and the perfect narrator. Josh is a wonderful writer, he is on my immediate purchase list of authors, and now that he has the rights to most of his stories he is making sure that his characters come to life with the right voice(s) Alexander J. Masters is amazing. Don't waste your money on "I Spy something Bloody" buy the complete set with "In From the Cold"

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would definitely recommend this audiobook. The story is so good - suspenseful and romantic, it's about decisions and fears and how they can affect someone's life, and you feel everything right along with the characters. Plus, the narration is one of the best i've heard, it really enhances how one experiences this story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The two main characters are both favorites for different reasons, so since i cannot choose between them, I'll go with one of the secondary characters, namely Lena, the housekeeper. She's kind and sensitive and tough and observant. She knows how to pick her battles, she's fiercely protective, and she's willing to set aside her personal likes and dislikes so that someone else's happiness may prevail. I just love her.
Which character – as performed by Alexander J. Masters – was your favorite?
Mark, by far. Alexander does a superb job of bringing to light every nuance of this very complex character. I've never heard such a good rendition of character in an audiobook before.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Oh yes. I couldn't put it down when i read it, and i didn't want to stop listening once i started either. Very engaging.
Any additional comments?
I really liked how the flashbacks were done narration- and sound-wise. So cool.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. It was not as good as I have come to expect from Josh Lanyon. The characters didn't draw me in to the story at all.
If you’ve listened to books by Josh Lanyon before, how does this one compare?
Not a patch on the Armed and Dangerous series and way below par compared to the Adrien English mysteries.
Would you be willing to try another one of Alexander J. Masters’s performances?
No. As a Brit I found his 'british accent' rather annoying.
Could you see In From the Cold: The I Spy Stories being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
I have no idea, the characters didn't engage me enough to care.
Any additional comments?
I may have enjoyed this better in print format, it's hard to say.
