Immense, Immersive Enjoyment

Would you consider the audio edition of A Cold-Blooded Business to be better than the print version?

I have read several of the novels, but never listened to one. I don't know that it's better, necessarily, but different, and I enjoyed it a lot. The narrator is perfect for Kate, and Dana Stabenow's writing is always pitch perfect. I liked this audio book immensely.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kate Shugak, of course. She's smart, witty, and kicks ass! What's not to like?

What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

I thought Marguerite's take on Kate was awesome. I will admit, I was a bit apprehensive, but she pulled it off with perfect tone and clarity. Well Done.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. As it was, I got through it in about 3 different sittings, but was constantly thinking about the story when I was away.

Any additional comments?

This series is awesome, and now that I've discovered them on audio, I am even more excited to go on many more adventures with Kate, Mutt and Jack. Love it !!!

Another GREAT listen added to the list!

I want to start off by saying I am biased with my reviews of the Kate books. I have read them all and will re-read them at least once a year. I enjoy the fact that Dana is sticking with Marguerite Gavin as a narrator! She does an excellent job of pulling the characters out of the book and putting them in your mind as individuals. I wonder about pronunciation and I was so happy to hear that those two work together to make sure names and locations don't get lost in translation. I always keep a credit on my acct for that fleeting moment where another book is released! Thank you Dana, Marguerite and Audible for giving my busy day a touch of joy, suspense and laughter.

Kate taking on 'the slope'. YUP, it's finally time she wondered up there to see what all the ruckus is about. And she gets more than she ever could have imagined. From long, busy as hell work days with amazingly scrumptious dinners to first-aid calls on and off the field. Turtle races, hot fudge sundays and a swimming pool/sauna... all on the slope. Add a little dope in the mix and it all goes bad and I mean real bad! So bad that even Kate can't wrap her mind around it... not at first at least.
