Publisher's Summary

Dr. Woodrow Moreland, a respected scientist, has invited Alex Delaware, psychologist/detective, to his home on a tiny Pacific island to help him organize his papers for publication. It's a light workload, leaving plenty of time for Alex and his girlfriend, Robin, to relax.Quickly, however, secretive houseguests and unexplained visitors dim the pleasures of deep blue water and white sands. Alex can't help wondering why Dr. Moreland really invited him to the island. When he probes, Alex discovers a sour and unwelcome truth. But truth it is, and its discovery comes just in time to save Alex and Robin from the violence that threatens them.

Ho Hum

Narrators can make or break a good book and what we consider good narration is certainly a matter of choice. I advise you to listen to the sample first before spending your credits. If I took my own advice, I'd still have a credit to spend! While he does a good job switching between characters, I find the overall narration flat and more like listening to a weather report. The story is interesting but it's been pure torture listening to this narrator. I'm halfway through the story and I can't listen to one more word. Nails dragging across a chalk board - you know?
