Reminded Me of the Joy in Short Stories

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Without hesitation.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Multiple narrators but most were 'Pitch Perfect' on the key characters.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to many of the James Lee Burke novels. Most I enjoyed immensely. I prefer novels and thus turned somewhat reluctantly to this collection of short stories. My mistake, I had forgotten how richly rewarding the short story genre can be. These were extremely engaging tales and in my view, revealed the true narrative scope of this author in a way that is not always so evident in his novels. I thought the various narrators for each story also did a superb job and I think were well selected for each of the stories they narrated.
