Great book, average reading

What did you like best about this story?

The story is great - good detective/noir/magic yarn, some of it based off the most famous detective/noir stories (Holmes, Christie, Hammett).

What didn’t you like about Victor Villar-Hauser’s performance?

Victor must learn what punctuation is all about.
He stops in middle of sentences, stress wrong words, etc.

dreadful narration

Would you try another book written by Randall Garrett or narrated by Victor Villar-Hauser?

I would always try another Garrett, but would make a point of avoiding Villar-Hauser.
As well as reading in a way that misses the sense, he can be relied upon to mispronounce English, French, Irish ... It grates from the first, but becomes really irritating by the end.
