I might have enjoyed this story better had it been narrated by someone else.
It was so hard to care about the story (and I'm a JC fan) that I was continually thinking that our ceiling needs painting.
Jeff Harding and George Guidall (previous narrators) do Charlie Parker so well. They have the gravitas to actually sound like a former cop whose wife and daughter had been brutally murdered.
By comparison, Holter Graham sounds like a puppy.
I imagine he'd do well narrating other books. His diction is good and his voice is (too) pleasant. Here he just sounds glib, like a candidate for Student Council president.

I re-read the series every year, and I hear different things every time. This one is something I cannot read at night. Too much of my least favorite thing! So glad John Connolly finally got this book on Audible.
Anyone who is not a resident of Maine will probably not be bothered by the faults in narration. However, I would like to offer my free expert advice to all narrators who are giving voice to books set in Maine. As a life long resident, I could tell you that &quot;Calais&quot; is, in Maine, pronounced like &quot;callous&quot;, not &quot;cal-ay&quot; like the French, or how &quot;Machias&quot; is pronounced. That kind of thing is the only reason this book did not get a full five stars. Most of the narrators make these mistakes, even while they capture our Downeast accent, and use it for all of us, although there are at least 4 distinct regional accents
Other than that, you will enjoy this book!.
