A career stepping-stone for McNeal, the investigation puts her at cross-purposes with the Seattle Police Department's Lou Boldt and Sergeant John LaMoia.When Melissa disappears, perhaps at the hands of the Chinese Triad, McNeal turns from foe to ally and teams up with the detectives on an investigation that takes them from Seattle's docklands to the offices of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

The First Victim (Unabridged)

I have just listended to The First Victim narrated by Scott Rosema. Unfortunately I dont think that he is aware of what he is reading. He reads much too fast with no apparent thought to the content. This makes it difficult to follow the story, which probably deserves better rating, but since the narrators very poor perfermance makes it difficult to follow the story, I can only rate it 2 stars. I will from now on make sure to avoid any book narrated by Scott Rosema.

Unfortunate Reading

I enjoy Ridley Pearson novels and have several in my listening library. However, this one - while a good story - is so poorly performed by Scott Rosema - it's nearly impossible to listen to and follow. He reads far too fast and does not pronounce words in any understandable form. I have to rewind constantly to pick up on important details. Disappointing indeed.
