It must be very difficult for Stabenow to write a bad mystery book, as she doesn't disappoint here. This book is a bit more sombre fare than some of the earlier Kate Shugak stories, perhaps because we get flashbacks to earlier deaths from the point of view of the victims. The setting is the Park, so we get further development of the Park Rats we have come to know through the previous volumes and we become invested in learning the outcome of the events. I recommend reading as many of the previous books as possible to get more out of this story.
Dunne did a good job with the narration; however, those who have become acclimated to Marguerite Gavin's narration of Stabenow's universe (both the Kate Shugak and Liam Campbell series) may be distracted by Dunne's rendition of the voices. I am fan of Dunne's other narrations (particularly of "The Sharing Knife" series), so I wasn't off put by her narration, although it did take an adjustment at the beginning of the book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Bernadette Dunne’s performances?
NO!!! She was horrible & cannot pull the characters off the page. I only finished the audible as I was on a long drive & couldn't read the book. She made everyone sound like school girls or cartoon characters none of which fit Dana Stabenows books.
Was A Deeper Sleep worth the listening time?
No, if I had realized it was not Margaruite Gavin & listened to a sample when I purchased it I would have read it instead. Bernadette Dunne should not be a narrator.
Any additional comments?
Love the books but this was painful to listen too. It was my fault for thinking it would be the same narrator as the other books.
