First - I'll say that this is an adequate mystery, not great, but ok. I liked the main character but the supporting characters were weak. The overall story was fine - interesting enough but not brilliant. Unfortunately, what really killed this story for me was truly dreadful narration. I've been able to tolerate a wide range of narrators and get used to voices that are less than ideal. If this narrator had simply read the story it would have been acceptable. However, she tried to do different voices for the characters and her attempts to do so were painfully bad. She tried to use accents that fell far short of authentic. Several of the character voices were like grating fingernails on a chalkboard they were so bad. The story itself would sound fine and then she would switch to one of the phony accents and my irritation would rise immediately. I had to listen to the book in bits and pieces because I couldn't tolerate the narrator for very long. I've listened to a lot of audio books and never found a narrator that I would avoid before now - but I won't listen to anything read by this narrator again!
