What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This is awful because I feel like I'm saying bad things about a close friend. That's how much I love the B. Holloway books. I have listened to ALL of them. It pains me to say that this one failed me. Perhaps it's my fault. It could be that I'm distracted, abstracted or not feeling well. The story has a convoluted feel to it. I don't like most of the characters, which is a first for me. Normally, I care very deeply for the people in the books. ( I know that's ridiculous since they aren't real people.) BUT, this matters to me. If you are an author and you make me love or hate or fear or pity or resent or whatever, then you have me. Kate Wilhelm, normally has me completely. This time, not so much.

I'm an audio bibliophile and the Barbara Holloway series is one of my very favorites!! Kate Wilhelm is an incredible writer, her character development is amazing...they all feel like old friends of mine. I listened to the entire series, AGAIN, as I anxiously awaited the release of the audio edition. I really appreciate how Kate Wilhelm threads facts and details about the state of our world today, hopefully helping people to become more aware of the changes that need to happen for our happy future survival!! The environment, Red Wriggly compost worms, the injustice of our justice system, the lack of morality of big business and certain humans...good ole Frank, Barbara and the 'team' shine their conscientious goodness throughout twisting and turning, yet believable, plots!! I always have a wish list when I'm done, I wished Alex had made an appearance and Maria's Mum, jack of all trades Herbert (?)w/ his amazing dogs...just goes to show how attached one can get to fictional characters!! Barbara Holloway, along w/ the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear and a few others are my go to good JuJu feeling listens. Carrington MacDuffy is an amazing narrator as well! Thank you Kate Wilhelm for another terrific book!
When's the next one going to be available⁉️😃

I know for a fact that the wonderful, wonderful Kate Wilhelm was born in 1928 so I did not expect book 14 in the Barbara Hollows series. All the characters were there. Truth, justice, and Barbara defending a better world. It was terrific.
