Would you listen to Dead Heat again? Why?
I've done so several times. Because it's good story with short arcs that make it work even if you listen to just a chapter or so at a time driving to work and back.
Who was your favorite character and why?
George Lee. He's always watching out for Taz even after death. He's not so much a free range ghost as her personal haunt and conscience.
What does Suzanne Elise Freeman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Sharon Green has always had some problems with stilted dialog but it hasn't ever really bothered me. But the reader's flow smoothed all that and made the sometimes awkward back and forth work better. Especially the dinner scenes seem natural. Also the breathy low tones for all the vampires gave them an extra feel of menace.
Any additional comments?
I've read Sharon Green's stuff since she started. I've really enjoyed being able to hear at least one of her stories read. Hope she does a few more.
I have no prior experience with the author, and am fairly new to this genre. That being said, I truly enjoyed this book!. It does strongly favor my own prejudices: pro-cop, anti-fed. Ghosts, vampires, and shapeshifters are part of the usual population, but other nasties are not. When local law is out of their depth with the nasties, they need help from the bounty hunter team headed by Taz Bell. The plot is sequential, with several cases and jurisdictions. Verbal visualization is clear. The characters become clearer with each passing "page". A great fun escape!
SEF does a fine audio performance. One would wish that she used a lower tone when voicing men, but as she does a first rate job otherwise, it is non-critical. She has the emotion, cadence, and clear voice that are essential for a good read.
Audiobooks are vital to my current lifestyle, and I am very pleased to have been gifted with this one. Can't wait until the others are recorded!
