I very much liked the early Deborah Knott books by Maron, but I won't be reading or listening to any more. There is a noticeable tiredness in this volume, and it lacks the sharp and witty characters and interactions of the first entries in the series. The information about turkey vultures at the beginning of each chapter seems contrived, and the story and action drag out, though this is not a long book at all.
C.J. Critt has a clear delivery, but she doesn't seem to be much interested in this half-hearted story either.
"The Bootlegger's Daughter" and some of the other early parts of this series are well worth trying, but don't waste your time with this one.

Where does The Buzzard Table rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very good. The author is known to me. My favorite book so far was a history, not a mystery. The Secret Biography of Ghengis Kahn.
What did you like best about this story?
I am familiar with the author, the characters and as always, I learn something from the history incorporated into the story.
Which character – as performed by C. J. Critt – was your favorite?
Reid, Judge Knott's cousin is always a bit elusive but interesting.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes. It was her new relationship to her stepson.
Any additional comments?
I like the fairness of Judge Knott, her huge family and her kindness to her stepson.
