Stanley Townsend does an amazing job with all the characters and especially deliniating the villian's "thoughts" from the rest of the dialogue; however, he can't help the meandering story line.
The mystery itself is pretty standard stuff--three girls missing in Dublin, three girls missing years ago in LA, must have something to do with the movie company working in both places--but Hughes' writing gets bogged down in long internal conversations that some characters have with themselves and that have very little to do with the main story. He drops some nice misleading clues that keep your interest in the missing girls plot, but seems to stop his own momentum with these self-analysis monologues.
I typically devour audio books when I'm driving and can listen to most anything. I have tried listening to this book several times and have given up after an hour or so. I think it is the narration. The reader using a voice that is probably meant to be dark and menacing but it comes out to be overly affected and slow.
