What would have made Devil's Bridge better?
EFFORT from the author. Lazy and plotless.... so obvioius.
The worst part is that there are 2 plot lines she doesn't even bother to address at the end - so if you read about the IT theft and the death of the Reverend's money collector don't expect to find out any more about them: one of these gets a bare mention but no actual resolution.
She doesn't even bother to make a cliff hanger of the unresolved parts...
What could Linda Fairstein have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Return to the form she used to have in earlier books: this means she needs editors who tell her the truth (or else she cynically does not care...)
What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?
Excellent as ever - the only saving grace of this rubbish plot...
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Devil's Bridge?
It is not about cutting it is about bothering to add needed scenes into the book....
Any additional comments?
What a waste of a listen! This is one to return!

Though advertised as Barbara Rosenblat, mostly it is someone different. Male. He sounds too old for Mike Chapman and the New York accent is forced, he also has a separate accent for the African American police, which feels slightly racist as it is too "street". I played the male part at 1.25 speed and it flowed better .
The story is especially weak, Chapman solves a riddle too easily. Storylines are dropped and forgotten. Chapman simply did not sound male. Males do not think the way she wrote him, too Mills and Boon.
