Publisher's Summary

You might think that a guy with the name of Steve Jobz would be one lucky man. That he'd be rich and have the world at his fingertips. But instead, Jobz is barely making ends meet at the New York State Department of Unemployment Insurance Fraud. A former cop who was forced to retire early after shooting a young man of color during a convenience store holdup, Jobz has since resigned himself to wasting away his days in a four-by-four cubicle inside an office space that's more boring than watching the paint dry. But when his overbearing boss calls him in on a job that the Albany Police Department is heading up, Jobz has a chance to get out of the office for a while. But what he doesn't realize is that he's about to come face to face with a serial killer who embalms his victims alive. What he is also about to face down, is his own worst nightmare come true when that serial killer turns out not to be a stranger.

A decent start to a detective/pi series

What did you like about this audiobook?

I liked the banter between Steve and Miller, and thought he enhanced their interactions. Overall Andrew B Wehrlen did a pretty great job narrating, all of the characters had fairly unique voices and were easy to understand.


Do you have any additional comments?

Overall this was a decent start to a PI series, fairly entertaining and decently paced. The future books with the PI agency could be interesting, there is a lot of banter back and forth between characters. It is fairly by the numbers for the genre, but still entertaining. The antagonist left me wanting something more though I will say, after all of the messed things he is doing, he is a bit of a let down, but maybe that is the point.

Even with a few things annoying me, I still was entertained throughout.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Good read

Would you listen to The Embalmer again? Why?

Yes I would - it's entertaining and a good listen.


What other book might you compare The Embalmer to and why?

It's very similar to the "Keeper Marconi" series = also written by Zandri.
It's in a simpler / older style, I always think "gumshoe" style.

Good performance, Andrew kept the book moving along , he His style fits Zandri's writing style perfectly.
