I use Kindle Unlimited - which is a great way to periodically supplement my Audible addiction when I run out of credits. So, I was able to listen to this through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. This fact made the book enjoyable for me. The narrator is not a favorite, he would fall more under the category of a narrator "work horse." Serviceable, but not my favorite kind of voice.
The story is also just fine. The characters are typical villains or flawed good people - a bit cliché but for some reason (I think due to the Kindle Unlimited deal) I kept listening. I also listened to the sequel which also was a bit cliché.
I gave it four stars because I just was taken up for some reason. Nancy Drew for grown ups. I finished it and if his next book comes through Kindle Unlimited, I will listen to that as well. They are like adult potato chip books. I do not think I would use an Audible credit, however. Take that for what it is worth.

Forget an editor, did anyone even proof this thing before it went to the printer? For example, a mother thrown free from a wreck is afterword told by doctors that her child hadn't survived. A chapter or so later we're told that the mother... whose moving scene we listened to... also failed to survive the wreck? HUH? That's not a plot problem that's a BLACK HOLE!
Of course if it weren't for those holes there'd be NO surprises in this thing,,, so they do give a listener some sense of the unexpected. Eric Dove does a fine job though in bringing life to this comic book ensemble.
I listened to the end. Why? Now that is the only puzzle about "The Professor".
