Narrator made too many repeats.

Would you listen to Bad News again? Why?

Once or twice, reading same line again is bearable, but many times - not okay. I will listen to it again, though, because it IS a Dortmunder novel.

What did you like best about this story?

Great story.

Twisted plot about twisted characters.

I enjoy the Dortmunder series of comic mysteries. This is one of the more intricate plots and more complicated than most. Not that it is believable, but at least, within its own world, it kind of makes sense, which isn't to say it isn't full of surprise twists. It ends in a satisfying way, in which nearly every crook gets what he/she deserves. Needless to say, John Dortmunder is never going to make a huge financial killing, but he'll never be without his group of friends and admirers. The narrator, Michael Cramer, does an exceptional job giving individual voices to the characters and adds enormously to the pleasure of the story.
