The pace of these Special Unit novels is great. There's always a surprise ending.

Lucas is the brooding hero that makes the romance work.
Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Dick Hill has the voice to keep one riveted.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not really...I'd rather it went on forever.
Any additional comments?
Kay Hooper does the paranormal better than anyone else.

Where does Hunting Fear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Hunting Fear is the seventh Kay Hooper book I have listened to from Audible. The story was just as interesting and compelling as the previous six, but I found the production of this particular book to be less to my taste.
Did Dick Hill do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
The characters were well differentiated - but this was accomplished by giving a lot of characters accents that I personally found very distracting. I just don't think everyone needs an accent. And for a character like Bishop, who has a role in every novel, to suddenly have an accent that he never previously had, is beyond distracting. I don't want to be thinking, "why does he sound like that? what accent is that even supposed to be?" when I should just be enjoying the story.
Details like having the sound change when a character was talking through a phone or listening to a report on the radio were also distracting.
I think I prefer to imagine these things rather than having them explicitly performed for me. I had my own imagined version of Bishop and his team after six books, and this performance clashed with my version to such an extent that I was pulled out of the story by it. I think maybe the reading needs to be a little more neutral, especially when it is part of a series with recurring characters but different readers.
So the performance was a detraction, but even so, I really liked the story and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.
