Too Tough a Task
Needed more time. This is a two and one half hour audio book, from a one hundred and nineteen page book. The author had to introduce characters, establish explanations for their actions, introduce a mystery with multiple bodies and include the "chase". There is an exotic location, a reasonably likeable protagonist. The work just wasn't long enough to accomplish all of the elements of a good mystery. Some of the motivations and actions by the characters seem to be just thrown out there and not reasonable.
Telegraphed. Which is what I meant that the work needed to be longer for that aspect to develop.
Dan Carroll has a pleasant voice. Easily understood.
Please stand back from the geyser!
I appreciate the opportunity to listen to and review this work.
I would like to see the work lengthened and developed a bit more. It's on the right track!
