No kill station

This audiobook is enjoyable to listen to. It's fun discovering a couple of surprises. It’s an interesting story—with a supernatural elements weaved in—about a corrupt SPCA shelter director’s crimes and indiscretions being uncovered.

Cosy mystery for animal lovers

This is a cosy mystery that animal lovers will definitely enjoy. As well as an entertaining murder story, it covers issues of pet overpopulation, kill vs no kill centres, greed and animal cruelty politics in the US. It also has an enjoyable bit of romance and a splash of supernatural too. The narrator fit the story well, he easily pulled you into the story and his pace was just right. All in all, it’s an easy listening entertaining audiobook.
