Swing and miss.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No..... I was bored it is too long with a weak plot and undeveloped characters.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Nothing in this book was compelling for me.
What about Steve Campbell’s performance did you like?
He is a good narrator but of course is limited to the material he has to work with.
Do you think The Mackenzie Dossier needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No at least not for me.
Any additional comments?
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

If Columbo and Shawn Spencer had a kid
As things go, I really prefer the Bumbling, but not so bumbling detectives over most brainy types. Of course, for me Sherlock Holmes is the exception. But I'll take Columbo over Poirot any day. Kendall is my kind of detective. He acts like he hasn't got a clue, while in reality, he has known whodidit all along.
Fair warning, you never wonder whodunnit, as you get to see the crime take place, a'la Columbo. However, you do get to see how Kendall figures it out for himself, since he isn't psychic. That is where the fun lies. I did find that Holt got a lottle (not a little but a lottle) wordy during some of his descriptions. Wordy to a point where you know that there is a chip of paint scratched off of the underside of a table, for example (that didn't happen, I don't want to post spoilers). You get the idea. Very verbose. The story is paced well, and it is fun to watch Kendall figure things out.
Steve Campbell plays a fun role narrating, and does a fantastic job bringing the story to life. I swear you can hear him improve as he goes along. I think he was getting a good grasp on the characters and flow of the story. He was enjoyable to listen to and kept the story on point, it never lagged.
Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
