Murder Upstream

Any additional comments?

Enjoyable and entertaining. It took me a bit to really get interested in the story. There were times the story moved a little to slowly. Full of mystery, suspense, humor and secrets with plenty of twists and turns. The humor balances out the story so even though it's a murder mystery it's not a dark story. .

Interesting characters. Detective Villante a somewhat flawed officer is on his first case after coming back from 2 years of undercover work that didn't end well. State Police Detective Aduwo is in town "helping" and doing an investigation of his own. What exactly he is investigating is the question.

Had no idea who the culprit was until it was revealed.

Andrew Tell did a good job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Good character voices. Clearly spoken. Nice pace with the narration. Really liked the way he portrayed Villante's sarcasm and humor. He was able to bring the character's to life. His narration kept me listening through the slow parts of the story.

This book was not for me

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sure just because it wasn't my kind of story doesn't mean it's. or for everyone. I just had a hard time staying focused on the story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The closing when one of the characters chose opposite of what he was being asked. Trying not to reveal a spoiler.
