Reviews

Lost interest

(2 stars)

The reader has very fast speech, and never pauses at the end of chapters. You never really realize that the chapters are over before he's saying his name again. His cadence seems to be consistent, which sometimes makes it hard to follow the plot.

Interesting "read"

(4 stars)

The narrator did a decent job at making this intrigue story an enjoyable & interesting read. Just enough uncertainty to keep you listening. Going to listen to more books by this author.

(5 stars)

A mystery that unfolds like the skins of an onion. Well worth the read/listen
