Publisher's Summary

Private investigator Robert Brixton has always hated Washington. Against his better judgment, he decides to stick around and take a job as an agent in a new State Department security agency headed by his former boss at the Washington P.D. After work one day he meets his youngest daughter, Janet, for a drink at an outdoor cafe. Shockingly, a young Arabic woman blows herself up, killing Janet and a dozen others. Seeking revenge for his daughter, Brixton follows the tracks of the bomber to a powerful senator's son.
Brixton finds himself digging deep into what turns out to be a small but powerful cabal whose goal is to kill embassy workers from nations involved in the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. Donald Bain thrills again with Undiplomatic Murder, the riveting next installment in the Margaret Truman's beloved Capital Crimes series.

Simply awful

Any additional comments?

Plodding. Repetitive. Predictable. Characters that are rather sickly sweet or cardboard bad guys.Terrible acoustics that bounce from one speaker to the other.

And oh, sweet fancy Moses, the narration is just dreadful. In fairness, I think that Dick Hill could possibly narrate a different sort of book - maybe a western- but for this story, his style doesn't fit AT ALL. He makes the protagonist sound half-drunk most of the time, as well as a whining, annoying ass. I kept wondering if I might be able to like Brixton a bit if I was reading the dialogue instead of hearing the emphasis and tone of the narrator.

The female voices are even worse, utterly cringe-making - trembly, tentative and grating. To be honest, it's possible the book would be more entertaining in print. I found the narration so distractingly bad that I don't think I can judge the story fairly.

- Bodiccea "I read from every category but intelligent mysteries short on gore and long on interesting characters are my favourite."

Many faceted, interesting and well paced

Unlike other reviews of the series since Ms Truman passed I have enjoyed all that I have read. Narration by Dick Hill can not be beat and the characters and stories are well constructed and developed.
Will continue to buy and listen And I do not believe you will be sorry you gave the series a "shot"...sorry😀
