No idea there was room for improvement
I'm a prosecuting attorney in New Mexico, with a love of the outdoors. I started checking out the Anna Pigeon series by Nevada Barr by serendipity because of my moderately long commute back-and-forth (an hour each way), and my boss urging me to get into audio books. Nevada Barr rocks! She gets the crime elements right, has done a wonderful job of characterization in each novel (so far I've "read" four unabridged in the series), and the narrator, Ms. Rosenblatt, is to be commended for the depth and breadth of her voice. I can hardly wait for the next in the series, even though I was nearly poisoned by the adrenaline coursing through my system during the last three to four hours of this one!

While I enjoyed this latest in the increasingly harrowing adventures of Anna Pigeon I felt that the quality of the audio recording was a bit lacking. Having listened to this on halfway decent headphones I was quite often distracted from the storyline by the breathy, wet noises that accompanied the reading as if the microphone was mere centimeters from the reader's lips. This was a first for me in a long history of listening to audiobooks and it was a bit disconcerting. While I recommend this book to faithful Nevada Barr followers, I encourage those of you with decent headphones to listen to it in the car where the distracting noises may be drowned out by engine noise.
