Jeff Gurney is a great narrator and does a great job on this book. Unfortunately Edoardo Balerino's reading of the first Shake Bouchant mystery, Gutshot Straight, captured the main character so perfectly any substitute would look like Roger Moore to Sean Connery.
Nevertheless Whiplash River is good mystery featuring truly entertaining characters so well developed I felt like they were old friends. It is funny and plays like a great Elmore Leonard movie.

Look, the competition out there for successful mystery/adventure fiction is intense, right? I want a book that will entertain me at the gym, during a commute, and at chore time. Some of those books are terrible. Some are great. But most are average. That is they don't disappoint, deliver a good time, and entirely disappear from your memory quicker than a political speech.
Lou Berney's, "Whiplash River" is one of those. I'll probably buy more of his books especially if they're read by Jeff Gurner. There are worse ways to spend an hour grooming the lawn.
It's average, but average is a good thing on these competitive shelves.
