Shady Place

It's always a good sign when I look for chores to do so I can continue listening to an audiobook! 'Shady Place' was one of those books - an entertaining listen with a combo of humor, mystery, and action. An 'adult community' is certainly not a setting I'm used to as the main locale of a story, but David A. Byrne made it work perfectly! And Nik Magill's narration kept me intrigued not only with his rich voice, but also great pacing and some pretty stellar character voices! I look forward to hearing more from this combo!
