Female detective in a man's world

Borderline is a novel about two female detectives investigating a murder of a woman with borderline disorder, and as the story develops, this woman seems to have ruined many people's lives, so there are many suspects.

We also get insight in the two detectives personal lives, struggles and their constant struggle when it comes to female detectives in a man's world. There are a lot sexism in this book and it made it rather dull. We've heard enough about the sexism in law enforcement - guys, get over it!

I usually enjoy detective novels, but I also expect these novels to be filled with a good sense of humor. I didn't have any laughs even that the book is loaded with original characters, who actually could be funny. Most of the characters weren't very likeable, and that annoyed the heck out of me.

I'm sure this book has a large audience, so it could be just me not all that captivated by it. It was hard to hold the attention, even the plot is well-developed. However, I didn't feel the characters was developed enough.

Narrator Pamela Almand was outstanding in her performance, and did voices and accents very well. She was very lively and involved and I'd love to hear her in other genres. She didn't have a girly voice, which made her very good when it came to the many male voices in this book.

Strong Female Leads

I like that there were 2 strong female leads in this book. The story was definitely interesting and I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen. Some of the dialogue seemed a little strange to me, but overall, I liked where the story and characters went.

I believe this was my first experience with Pamela Almand's narration. She did a nice job with the various characters and capturing the experience of the female detectives.
