First, the story was awesome, the blurb doesn't do it justice. The twists coming when least expected were great, I love that in a book. The main characters, Murph and Kate, were so mismatched at the beginning made me wonder where does the story go, but as the story unfolded I fell in love with them. Great secondary characters, the chief and the mail lady were my fave.
Dana Marton is a new author-to-me and I like what I see so far, I will be looking for her other books to enjoy. Thank you Ms. Marton.
As for the narration, I loved Ms. Ragan's voice, not as varied as others I've listened to, but great pitch, very pleasant. The only thing that bugged me is that she has a slight lisp, not sure what it is from, but a few places I had to go back and listen again to the word/s to hear what it was, two places I couldn't make it out even after the third listen.

Where does Deathwatch: Broslin Creek rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I loved the story but the lisp that you only hear in Ms, Ragan normal voice bugged me. Besides this I would say it was an outstanding listen. It is not the best but not the worse my far. I would listen to it again.
Which character – as performed by Talmadge Ragan – was your favorite?
Talmadge did wonderful on all the characters but I enjoyed Kate and the hit man the best.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Take a seat hang on for the ride of your life as you hold your breath as you have more action adventure than you can stand. More thrills as we send chills down your spine.
Any additional comments?
I am going to break this down from the narrator to the book. I have read Deathwatch and loved it. There are none of Dana Marton’s books that I have read that I do not love. Dana is one heck of an outstanding author who knows how to keep her readers on the edge of their seats as she takes you through her twist and turns. Dana knows how to tell a compelling story that always leaves you wanting more. In DeathWatch Katy watching her own funeral, I can’t even imagine setting there watching my family at my own funeral knowing until the bad man is caught they will have to live with the pain of my death. Knowing they will face many years of memories, of birthday, Christmas remembering the good times as they shed tears and not knowing how many more years you have to go before you can be with them again. This is one of those books that nothing but nothing is going to come between you and finishing it until the end.
How can you even think about being on the run for 18 months trying to keep one step ahead of a hit man? Be a sleep only to come awake to find a strange man in your bedroom what that must feel like. The author writes a story that keeps your heart in your mouth as she takes on a ride never knowing who to trust, no one has kept you safe not even the FBI. The author gives you everything you could ask for in this book. It is outstanding and you really should pick up one of Dana’s books to read or listen to. I cannot wait until I read the book where the hit man comes back.
Narrator: I thought she did an outstanding job on the characters, the different voices would done wonderfully. However she does have a lisp that you only hear in her normal voice, that did bug me. I did not find Ms. Ragan's voice to be smooth and even flowing in her normal voice but in the characters voice it was even and had an easy flow. I thought she brought wonderful life to the characters and I did enjoy her character voices.

I didn't see this coming. An assassin who had another assassin as a lover? I think both Murph and Kate's characters could have been more developed. And, I wanted to see Kate massage some of that stress out of Murph. I think the two of them could be good together.
I found the book enjoyable, the story kept moving along, but I wish you learned a little more about the people.
Also I felt like the narrator of the story had a cold and I felt I wanted to offer her a tissue. She was very nasal and breathy. It destructed me from the story.
