Here in Atlanta we definitely say y'all (never spelled "ya'll") for a single person. Plural is more likely "all y'all". Anyway, I had no problem with the author's dialectical peccadilloes, but the reader definitely took a heap o' getting used to.
Once I resigned myself to the narrator's thin voice and occasional pronuncial missteps, his absurd attempts at feminine voices and over-the-top characterizations, I was actually able to enjoy much of the story. I found a lot of unexpected humor buried in the dialogue, and the delicate and specific science of DNA analysis was articulated very well. The book probably deserves another star *for the genre* but its overall appeal is limited, and it is not for the impatient listener.

The plot for this book is very good. However, the two heroes' constant bickering, threatening and posturing got old fast. By the end of the book, I would not have regretted the two of them being eliminated by the "bad" guys. The reader's gravelly voice was a bit annoying, as was the on-again off-again Southern accent.
