The serial novel begins....
From Joseph Pittman comes this serialized tale of secrets, murder, and the search for the ultimate truth. Combining his appreciation for small-town life, as seen in his Linden Corners series, with his love of mystery, as evidenced by his Todd Gleason crime novels, The Original Crime is a tour de force of suspense fiction.
Part One: Remembrance
Matthew Clark has returned to the upstate New York village of Eckert's Landing for a family crisis, only to be dragged down a dark path of murder and suspicion. The body of an unknown woman has turned up on the abandoned railroad tracks, and local police chief Rick Kelly doesn't know where to begin his investigation. The only clue is the fact that the method of murder mirrors that of a killer who haunted the village 20 years ago. But the Engraver, as he was dubbed, is long gone, or so it is believed. What secret has come home to Eckert's Landing, threatening to dredge up yesterday's awful past?
Don't miss the entire novel, published in three installments: Remembrance, Retribution, and Redemption.

This audiobook had a good narration.The reader respects the twistings of the plot and also the feelings of the characters.
The main character was interesting.
I would recommend this audiobook for crime readers.

Be prepared to listen to all three books
I knew this was a three-book-listen but I was not prepared for zero resolutions in book one. There were none. Zero. Nada. In that respect, it doesn't work as a standalone. (Just be prepared.)
I liked the listen but there were some technical issues with the narration. At first I thought it was with my phone and my ear buds but I got the same glitches when listening through my bluetooth speakers.
Book one ended on such a cliffhanger that I will definitely seek out book two. In for a penny, in for a pound.
