I love John Connolly's books---and I am especially fond of Louis and Angel. That's why this audio book was a disappointment. The story is great but the narration falls flat. In several places(especially in the second half) it sounds like it was dubbed over by someone trying to sound like Mr. Guidall. The reader has a fine voice but had some trouble staying in voice for Louis (mostly ok though) but never really got a handle on Angel's voice. At times he sounded like Detective Colombo trying to do a Cheech Marin imitation. I liked how he voiced Parker and his Willie Brew and Varno were great.

This story has been very difficult to get into and keep the timeline straight as it is constantly going to flashbacks requiring the listener to back up and try to reorient. I do find my mind drifting more than usual requiring me, again, to back up and refocus. It is very slow and very difficult to make one even care much about the characters. I have liked other John Connolly stories but this one isn't his best.
