Another Horrible Narrator

This reads as a pretty good mystery with a solid story and no huge holes in the narrative. Then there is the man they picked to narrate this novella. His stumbling staccato delivery is a boon to the dentists of all of us who sat through his performance. To further this lack of coherence between book and reader, while the setting is San Antonio Mr. Killavey has a wicked thick Boston accent. This story was good enough that I manged to listen through to the end but it was due to my loyalty to an excellent story by John Dalglish. I may give another book in the series with a different reader a shot.

- Me & My Girls "Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams"

Could have done without the narrator change!

This installment of Detective Jason Strong was pretty emotional. Det. Strong has a pregnant wife ready to pop at any moment, and is having to look for his missing colleague Nina. Jason's close friend and fellow officer Nina goes missing and when he and his partner Vanessa start investigating her disappearance they discover some pretty cruel and unbelievable information.

Nina was only in a few books up until this point, and not a well known character for me. However, going through what happened to Nina was disturbing, and made me feel helpless, total empathy! I thought the way the story was going was leading me to think of one ending, when in reality the plot twist turned everything upside down! It makes me wonder what I missed in the previous book though...

Narrator Review

James Killavey narrated book six, however he was not always the narrator in this series. James is one of six narrators for the series thus far! OK, now I've heard Rich McVicar, and Paul Heitsch, they were ok, and very good, but James, my word, he was not good. James comes off so clinical, and emotionally detached that his narration takes away from the story telling by A LOT! This book in particular is very intense and emotional, and dude, can you sound sad? Or pissed off? Give the characters something! I listened all the way through because the story is good, but I was struggling big time with James' vocal tone! On a happy thought, James would make a great voice over for a alien documentary special! No joke. He would be great for reciting information, like a report, but not story telling.
