First, I'd get rid of the premise that a President would actually consider such a potentially dangerous vacation; and the Secret Service wouldn't manage to talk him out of it if he did? Al Queda aside, who's even going to trust the weather these days, with all the global warming impacts? Then you have our hero injuring himself multiple times, but still managing to jump right up and go leaping through the snow to escape the assassin. Really! would he be out there anyway, having just been attacked by a bunch of insurgents, who certainly didn't just evaporate after the battle. Unless we're to assume that oxygen deprivation led to such unreasonable actions - but that possibility wasn't mentioned.
The biggest disappointment, though, was that this wasn't a murder mystery at all. The murder got precious little attention; just resolved in a couple of paragraphs at the end, after killing off the sweetest character in the book. What a waste.
I could nitpick this storyline all day, but note, I was also disappointed in the reader. He just didn't seem like the right voice for the character. Also, though he could have been working with unedited text, if I noticed all those errors, he should have, too, and taken the trouble to correct and re-record those parts.
I guess I was expecting too much, given that the book included a great mountain, a President and his crew, African tribal officials, feuding press, and insurgents. Who couldn't make a great book out of all that? I would have given one star, but since I did actually finish it, had to bump it up a bit.

What made the experience of listening to Murder on Kilimanjaro the most enjoyable?
Love the narration and the story.
What did you like best about this story?
It is an action packed adventure that wrapped up the whole series. I couldn't have asked for a better conclusion to a series I've really enjoyed.
What does Greg Lutz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I was amazed by his ability to change accents and how he was able to give each character their own personality by just using his voice.
