This was a great listen. The reader was so good at putting different characteristics to the different people in the story that I often thought I was listening to a performance of many actors.
I like the story. It was a gruesome topic but it was not gory. The plot was challenging and interesting. The author did a great job describing the location of the story and the characters that populated it.
