I can usually listen to anything, if the performance is at all tolerable. The performance certainly is not the problem here; I love Grover Gardner --his voice & his reading style-- & have commented that I'd listen to him read the phone book.
Well, even GG & his magic voice couldn't get me into this one. I wasn't sure about writing a review at all, since I never could get thru the book despite multiple attempts. Just in case there's anyone out there like me who's not a serious jazz afficionado and does love GG, I'd say you might want to save your cash or credits. Just seemed like absolutely nothing was happening, nothing was going anywhere, & even the dialogue wasn't interesting enough to hang on for.
As I've mentioned a few times, this was not even good enough to put me to sleep; a book has to grab some attention or I just end up worrying about life anyway. if it's too boring, I can't get out of reality. This one couldn't take me from reality for more than about a minute & a half at a time.
I don't think this was worth a credit...even if the credit had cost 50 cents.

First one I have heard by this guy. Plot was weak. Dialogue was odd (too much "man" and "baby" - not sure people really ever spoke that way). No Connelly, Crais, Coben, or Child. Maybe I only like authors who's last name starts with "C"?
