This is the 9th book in the series.

This book is one of the later books in a series, but this is the first audiobook. If you haven’t read the first books I can’t imagine too many people liking this book. If this is the first book in the series that you've read then I think it would be boring to some since you wouldn't have the background of the character. If you like the other books then you’ll like this one. I enjoy her books but they aren’t for everyone. In each book it’s been very easy to determine who committed the crime long before the characters in the book figure it out. What I enjoy about the book is the interaction between the two characters. There’s no sex or language in her books, I think it’s what some people call a “cozy mystery”.

So sad!

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder In Chinatown to be better than the print version?

NA

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Good story. All of the books in the series have been good. Entertaining. Great history. Very enjoyable.

What didn’t you like about Suzanne Toren’s performance?

Everything! I LOVED this series until this first book with the new narrator. It is amazing how the narrator changes the character of a book. Sadly, I don't like Frank Malloy anymore. Sara Brant has aged 20 years. The next door neighbor is now irritating. I am so sad because I have 10? more books in the series, but I won't listen to them. I really have not had such an extreme reaction to a narrator before.

Any additional comments?

I'm sure she is a fine narrator, I just don't like her for these books. Especially since I had gotten used to the earlier narrator, who molded my expectations of the characters and my relationship to them. The expectations were shattered with the new narrator. I don't know these characters any more! Probably good advice, don't change narrators mid series if possible.
