Great Story, Don't Like the Narrator
I love this series. I think Laura Lippman is brilliant. I enjoy the character development and the wonderful world building.
The narrator is very talented, but does not suit this story, in my opinion. She sounds like a contralto woman who has smoked for a long time. She does a great job with the "world weary" characters in the story, but everyone else sounds goofy.
I love the writing,
This is a great series.
