I really hated giving this book a 1 star rating, but the reader completely ruins this book. I love the Spellman series! I read two of the books before I found them on audio. Usually I don't double-purchase a book, but the sample of Ari Graynor's narration convinced me to give them a listen as well as a read. She was spot-on in her voicing of all the characters.
For this final book in the Spellman series, however, for some poorly conceived reason, a new narrator was selected. Nothing is good about this choice of narrator. This 0-star performance from the reader is tortuous to listen to. I would like to note that the reader seems fairly competent; pacing and pronounciation were acceptable. Unfortunately, she is just about the most inappropriate reader possible for this series.
First, Isabel is 30 years old; this reader makes her sound in her 50's. Basically, everyone sounds in his or her 50's at least-- even Rae. In several spots where the conversation moves quickly without tags, it was impossible to know who was speaking because everyone sounds exactly alike.
If you have listened to and enjoyed the previous novels, steer very clear of this horribly concieved narration! I have bought the hardback version of the novel and will read it to myself, and that is what I recommend you to do as well.

I have to agree with the other reviewers. Why oh why did they change narrators?? The series is such fun, and the edge of the narrator's voice was grating to say the least... wish I'd just bought the book! Next thing you know someone other than Dick Hill will be narrating the Jack Reacher stories!
