These shorter books are a great listen and worth a laugh or two. McManus has a knack for one liners that are really pretty clever and funny. As the series progresses, the reader learns to like the characters more and more. I was a little concerned that the latest narrator was different, but he got the job done and seemed to get in the spirit of things. This mystery is a little different than the others - simpler. If you're looking for a Nobel prize winner, you need to look somewhere else. If you're looking for a lighthearted mystery with some funny characters, then you've come to the right place.

Would you listen to The Tamarack Murders again? Why?
Probably not. It was fine, but not a stand-out listen.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Most interesting: The puzzle of the crime had quite a few twists and turns. Least interesting: The final reveal at the end which provided information that the reader was not given to work with which acts as a lynch pin to the story.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The performance was a bit flatter than previous books by this author. This narrator was less theatrical about the character voices and it diminished the listen, in my opinion.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes, it was short and interesting enough that I did listen to it - mostly - in one sitting.
Any additional comments?
I have to say that this is probably the weakest in the series so far. The story was average, the narration average. I would recommend it only to Bo Tully or Patrick McManus fans. This would not be a good way to hook someone in on the series.
