The author lost the plot badly here.
She contradicts herself so often that it breaks the narrative.

Horrible narration ruined a possibly okay book

The narrator seems to need to sigh out the end of every sentence. It is a third rate affectation that ruins the story. Actually, she only does that half the time.
The rest of the time she *whispers*.
I might hunt this up in text format in the library. It did have promise.

They're not wrong about the narrator but ...

she grows on you.
Very good story. I have a couple of burning questions left to the imagination, but overall, a good yarn.
No regrets buying this, but fair warning, I nearly didn't get past the first chapter.

a thoroughly horrible accent and chewy diction when none of her family do?
Pretty good book, but oh dear, the narrator hates Peabody. The only one she hates more is McNab, whom she makes sound like a Valley Girl.

Early work. Skip this & go to his better stuff

Audible is making it hard to return this book. So much for their touted policy cy of one click returns.

Ghastly narration, is the narrator being strangled

The story might be passable but the narration makes it not worth bothering with. Avoid.

Anticlimactic last couple of chapters, creating no intrigue or suspense.
A pity because there were plenty of options to create dramatic storylines.

Not even on a dare

With a better narrator, and with some constructive editing, this could have been okay.
Not great, but okay. There are some good elements of suspense.
However in this state it is too awful even to do on a double dog dare.

Can't see what all the fuss is about

Does it get better in future books? it would need to. I don't buy noir books to drown in character analysis.
