review

not bad but lots of back ground noises which made it difficult to hear the story sometimes. didn't like the ending. it felt a little lost at the end lie the author didn't really know how to finish the story.

Loved the sound effects

Like listening to the old radio plays. Good twists but a little far fetched at times. Enjoyed the read.

1st book listens to with multiple narrators

I found it a bit hard to get the context of the story where the character's where and what was happening around them. It took a while too get in to but loved it in the end.

Very different having all the characters playing their part and having all the background noises. Very off putting to start, but gradually got used to it. I reserve my judgement as to whether or not this is the better way to present an audible book.

In saying that a great story from an author I haven’t read/listened to before.

A delightful listen!

For me, full cast audio plays are one of the best things about Audible, and this is an excellent example. Wonderfully produced with scene-setting sound effects that enhance without intruding and enough character building that the individuals stand out clearly, this one is also full length so not a one-sitting listen. Like most people I think, I listen while doing other things so I don't want a story that requires my full attention but rather stays interesting and makes other tasks less mundane whether its driving, exercising or housework. This fits the bill exactly!

Interesting

It was an OK story but a great performance. I liked the sound effects. It was difficult to tell some of the characters apart but it wasn't so bad that it took away from the story.

Interesting performance

Story line a bit hard to follow but good. Performance is more like a theatre production than novel. Interesting approach

Maybe too many cooks in the Kitchen.

This was okay, I think it may have been too many, voices on this project, and I'm still on the fence with all the sound effects. the story was very predictable, kind of knew the ending before it ended. In all Good performance, I just thought the story was believable, and basic forensic knowledge made me yell at my Jeep's Stereo multiple times.

Bouvard Stars In New York PI Thriller!

This is another high-quality audio production from Audible Studios. The star of the show for me was Laurence Bouvard as feisty cop turned PI Dinah Collins. She's very impressive and ably supported by the whole cast who all play their parts very well. The production values overall and the soundscape are maybe not quite as impressive as some of the other recent productions but it's still pretty good. The brief snatches of incidental music may annoy some but I actually found them good little breaks to assimilate the preceding events.

The story itself is a classic Private Investigator drama with enough twists, turns and patches of action to keep most thriller aficionados happy. The female take on it with her family in the background works very well and the chemistry between Dinah and her cantankerous father adds genuine warmth. In addition, the traditional opposition from a senior police officer that's a hallmark of these dramas is provided by Lachele Carl as Lenora Parks.

Put it all together and this is a very worthwhile listen and a great way to spend a credit. The time passed very quickly listening to it which is always a very good sign.

Excellent listen

This format was a first for me and I loved it. I did struggle initially and think this was because i wasn't used to it but soon settled into the background noises that enhanced the storyline. As to the story - I listened continuously almost - couldn't bear not to keep listening cos i needed to know what would happen next. I did guess the baddie and the end but it didn't detract from my enjoyment. All actors/narrators were very good. Music and sound effects just improved the whole experience. Will definitely try another one.

Sorry..not impresssed

Found this hard to follow..and the performance style was just not for me. I love audiobooks rather than semi radio plays and for me this somehow had the worst elements of each format.. Also found the story slow and it never captured my imagination as it did for other reviewers..colour me disappointed!

Excellent twisting plot, very well presented/produced. Very enjoyable (But a bit grisly) as an Audio book.

Never guessed the ending

This was a great weeks listen on the way to work. The plot was complicated, but not too much to listen to whilst driving, and I really loved not guessing the ending. The plot had lots of twists and turns which kept me listening and made me want to tune in the next day

Oh no. How is this so bad?

Really suprised by the high reviews. I forced my way through it as I had a lot of driving to do and didn’t want to waste a credit but this is a poor story clumsily told (Hewson’s first foray into radio-drama perhaps?) with distractingly over-done performances. An annoying and thinly drawn protaganist stumbles through an investigation into a missing girl full of more sterotypes and crime-tropes than you can shake a clown mask at. No character seems to have any depth, subtlety or realistic reaction to the events unfolding. Difficult to care for anyone. Really disappointed, definitely the worst thing I’ve spent a credit on from Audible. Should have listened to the sample I guess but was convinced by the high ratings. Very confusing. Please do better, Audible! I know you didn’t produce it, but have higher standards please.
