Predictably good story, disappointing narration
I'm sort of skipping around in the Shane Scully books, not reading them in any order, and this one actually sounds like an early book. Sadly, I think if it had been narrated by Scott Brick, who seems to have done all the later books, it wouldn't have sounded quite as sophomoric. Hill has a really nice voice when he just speaks normally, but when he speaks the female parts, it's nothing short of awful. Add to that, he sometimes forgets to use the woman's voice for the entire dialogue, starting out in an awful falsetto and ending in his regular voice...sometimes a little confusing. On the positive side, Hill enunciates beautifully, and if he just wouldn't do those really weird, affected voices, he'd be pretty darn good; the narration is well paced. The story is good, not great; maybe I'd like Scott Brick's version better. This is also done in the second person, where the later books are written in first person. This series reads better in first person.
