What would have made Missing Justice better?
It was very slow starting. I listened to the first two chapters and I found my mind wondering. reader is a slow talker in my opinion. I have listened to books read by her in the past. I just speed them up a bit but didn;t help this time.
What could Alafair Burke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
More interesting subjects at the beginning, to help grab the listeners attention.
How could the performance have been better?
Read a little faster?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Missing Justice?
The book would probably turn into a good listen, but I was just not interested.
Any additional comments?
I would like a credit back for this book. There are other books that I would rather listen to that don't require waiting for some thing to happen. I listen to be entertained and to enjoy. I was just not enjoying this product. I ended up putting on a book I had already listened to in order to complete my drive home.

This one wasn't for me. The author failed to create a credible environment in which to stage her characters. To my mind these too lacked sufficient form or depth to be convincing or draw an empathetic response from this reader. The plot was complex but the denouement disappointing with a long explanation of the ins and outs from one of the characters. The woman narrator also didn't quite cut the mustard. Her downunder accent did not help to centre the characters in North America and her voice was a little harsh. For some reason women narrators seem to face more pitfalls than men especially, maybe, in this genre.

This is a good listen,and the narrators new world accent sort of threw me,I would have prefered a good old southern USA accent.
Also it was a bit of a documentry on the DAs office and going ons!
The story was good,but not anything like Miss Lee Burkes father,which I highly recommend.
Overall it was a fair listen with a good plot.
