I had never heard of this book at all, and when the opportunity came for me to listen to it I was surprised to see how many awards it had won, and deservedly so. This tale is meticuously crafted, perfectly plotted, and peppered with realistic and interesting characters.This is more than a mystery. It is a journey into the amazing mind of Don Daglow, and it is one that will make you feel everything that Steve, the MC, is going through.
Steve, the protagonist, just wants to lead a simple life, but suddenly finds himself the suspect of a double homicide. His shipmates decide to help him in his time of troubles, and this is where the story takes off. Questions arise from the typical Whodunnit to simply will Steve's love be requited? Oh, and while it is more than a mystery novel, the mystery is complex and captivating.
Stifel is excellent at drawing you in and holding your attention once he has you. He really makes you believe that he is each individual character, and that the events are really occuring in real time. He elevates an already amazing novel.
Fog Seller is just fabulous, and you will lament that your time with Steve and his crew is over. You will miss them and wish there was more to this story.

This audiobook was such a pleasant surprise for me. I had no idea of what to expect when going into it and ended up really liking it. The first third moved along at a nice pace as did the last third. There was a part in the middle that was kind of slow though. However there was such a unique unexpected twist. I was blown away. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. The mystery kept me interested and I liked how it kept drawing in new unusual characters. Steve’s character was so well developed. He was extremely interesting. I was drawn to him from the start and wanted to know more about him. Also the narrator was well suited for his character. He did an excellent job. I think that if the pace remained steady and the book was a bit shorter I would have given it 5 stars.
I would like to thank the author/narrator/publisher for generously providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
