I am coming to realize that for audio books, even a great story can be undermined. Looking back on it, The Color of Death has a good story. Conflict, an interesting world of precious gems, love and violence. What made this book less satisfying was the inability of the reader to provide distinct characterizations to even the main protagonists. During dialogue I sometimes lost track if it was the man or the woman that was speaking, and I'm not sure the reader knew either. The main character is a woman, and there is one other woman in the book, while ALL the other characters (and there are a lot of them) are male. I'm not sure why the producer chose to use a female reader in this case; she had a lot difficulting coming up with multiple male voices.

I enjoyed this book and the added interest of gems and jewelry. The reader was okay but the scratchy voice used could be a little off-putting. It kept my interest and moved at a good pace with some good twists and turns thrown in. Once in a while the plot seemed so obvious to me that you wanted to yell at the characters to think logically, but that means I was involved in the book so that is a good thing. Would read another by this author given the opportunity.
