Publisher's Summary

Kepler had never meant to die this way--viciously beaten to death by a stinking vagrant in a dark back alley. But when reaching out to the murderer for salvation in those last dying moments, a sudden switch takes place.
Now Kepler is looking out through the eyes of the killer himself, staring down at a broken and ruined body lying in the dirt of the alley.
Instead of dying Kepler has gained the ability to roam from one body to another, to jump into other people's skin and see through their eyes, live their lives, be it for a few minutes, a few months, or a lifetime.
Kepler means these host bodies no harm and even comes to cherish them intimately, like lovers. But when one host, Josephine Cebula, is brutally assassinated, Kepler embarks on a mission to seek the truth--and avenge Josephine's death.

I can't deal with Peter Kenny's Narration

I seem to be in the minority here, but the narration made this one unlistenable for me and I had to get it in print. The narrator has this weird thing where he sort of chops sentences apart, saying a couple of syllables with such violence and rigour that it sounds like he's about to jump out of his chair and have a seizure. You could have a sentence that read, "I looked at the sky, and it was blue." This narrator would say, "I LOOKED!!--at the sky!--and it was BLUE!!!." Seriously, I can't take it. Please just settle down!

To be fair, this trait of his is not quite as pronounced in this book as it is in some of his earlier works, but after trying to listen to him in Andrzej Sapkowski's Blood of Elves, I now hear it in every sentence he says. It's less severe here than it was in that one, but it is still there, and I can't deal with it.

I think this is a good story, but the audiobook is going to have to go back.

Repetitive

Would you ever listen to anything by Claire North again?

Probably not

What about Peter Kenny’s performance did you like?

Clear diction. He didn't attempt to change voices for male/female, which was probably a good thing.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not as far as I am concerned. The story premise might have been interesting, but it was squandered

Any additional comments?

It was waaaay too long; the plot could have been condensed in so many places. Felt like I was watching the same movie sequence over and over. The main character keeps asking, "Who's Galileo?" By the time I started Part 2 of the audio, I didn't really care.
