Great start to a series ruined by narrator:(

I didn't mind that much that the narrator sounded like a 3-pack-a-day cowboy but that he didn't bother to change his pitch so that the two MCs sound different, was a big negative. This, because Stanley, the gay cop is, obviously, gentler, "as queer as a three-dollar bill" as Tom, the straight cop describes and the complete opposite of the gruff, surly Tom.

As if that weren't bad enough, several lines were omitted, in at least two places, entire paragraphs! Where my MLR Press ebook inserts "transgender", the audiobook omits it. Several times.

To top it all, somewhere in chapter 3, I could hear a dog barking in the background. I thought it was coming from my tv but it was the news - and on mute - so I listened carefully and it was from the audiobook. It had obviously been recorded in a private house - somehow I had the impression that had soundproof rooms or at least as good as.

I got a refund for this one and checked out Book 2 (Deadly Wrong) just to see if I had to return that, too, but Guy Veryzer sounds like a much better narrator. We'll see. At these prices, I expect a professional job and because this is a wonderful series by Banis. It deserves better attention by Audible.

Great Story, Lousy Reader

If you could sum up Deadly Nightshade in three words, what would they be?

Good detective story, no surprise characters so follow the clues to the end.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roy Wells?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


Any additional comments?

Narrator smacks his lips and mispronounces words; very distracting.
