NO GAME FOR A DAME is both a good mystery and a good audio book, not an easy accomplishment. Successful audible tales must have fast-paced and vivid scenes and clearly-conveyed characters. The narrative voice must be smooth with a bit of inflection and dramatic variation, but not too much. In all these ways, NO GAME FOR A DAME excels.
Moreover, the novel's protagonist, aggressive and resourceful private investigator Maggie Sullivan, takes us on a romp through 1930s Dayton, Ohio. Maggie views the world and its residents with a steady, honest gaze; her perspective brings to life even peripheral characters. Stereotypes do not exist in Maggie's world.
What fun it is to immerse myself in a Maggie Sullivan mystery. I trust that many more will follow.

Very retro feel, old time detective story. Nothing special, but a nice listen. If there were more in the series I'd listen to the next.
