Horrible Narrator

I read this book several years ago and vaguely remember the plot and the outcome. To me this has always been the Parker series that I liked the least. Once again in a Parker novel the word 'love' is beaten to death; I have never cared for the theme of "When a Man Loves a Woman" that is evidently something of an obsession with Parker. Then there is all the Freudian imagery that always accompanies the works of the author; themes that have for the most part been dismissed by the mental health profession. I've long since gotten past these factors and have read or listened to almost all of the author's works. I could not however, get past the narrator. I've enjoyed the audio books narrated by Kate Burton but Andrea Thompson the reader that did this selection was distasteful enough to listen that I gave up very quickly; maybe it's only me, and that I've become used to hearing Burton do the books in the Sunny Randall series but this one is a definite return for me. Listen to the sample before you purchase this one.
