Two major problems make Michael Gresham worth avoiding

1. While most novelists plot and plan a story, Ellsworth makes it up on the fly. The author seems as surprised from scene to scene as me. As if he got himself in a maze where he careened off walls of logical impossibilities to drag his battered narrative backward to stumble along another corridor - redefining (or abandoning)characters and plot to finally, be able to write 'the end". At which point Mr. Ellsworth was exhausted as me.

2. There aren't a lot of characters in this book but there are more than Stephen Hoye has voices. Mr. Hoye brings an annoying monotonic delivery to the lead character that's as if Star Trek's Mr. Data read us this garbled book.

At this moment there are two more books in this series... Which means that I shall save credits by buying neither of them.

Just okay

I found myself fast forwarding several times while listening to this. I am not sure if it was because of the narrator, or the story itself. I prefer books with more dialogue and less needless descriptions. I don't think I will read or listen to any more books in this series.
