Cheers for a 5 star winner!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely. It is chock full of a good set of characters, good plot, fast-paced, with even some modern forensics thrown in. Can't speak for the whole series, but this one was very modern in topic, dealing with nuclear waste as a catastrophe waiting to happen.
Josie Gray is the sheriff of a small Texas town near the border, and she uses a good balance of know-how for the job and interesting interactions with other characters. One nice thing about this book, is that since it is book 2 in a series (and book 1 not yet available), I wondered if it would be confusing to catch up on who's who and what occurred in the past. The author did a nice job of blending in the necessary info without it being overly obvious that that was what she was doing, so it all felt very smooth in that regard.
This is a very good book, if you like mysteries that move along, but still develop the characters very well. The narrator is quite good as well. She does a better than average job of creating men's voices in my opinion, which can be tricky for some female narrators. None of the characters sounded forced or off-putting in any way.
Holds your attention to the end. Highly recommend!
