Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A highly entertaining mystery about personal legacies and the politics of privilege…I’m thrilled to have Cab back between the covers of a book.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“In a story teeming with characters…Freeman does an expert job conducting the traffic and keeping the thrills within the bounds of believability.” Toronto Star
“[With] vivid descriptions, brisk action, relatable characters, and page-turning prose…Season of Fear establishes new stars in Bolton and Piper and a new story line that will leave readers eager to devour more.” Duluth News Tribune
"Season of Fear kicks into high gear as it combines the police procedural with the political thriller…The tightly coiled plot erupts in several directions, each plausible and believable to anyone the least bit familiar with Florida politics.” Florida Sun Sentinel
“Masterfully developed…You can almost feel the intensity of the tropical storm…An edge-of-the-seat, nail-biting reading experience with an exhilarating conclusion.” Fresh Fiction
“Fast-paced…A taut thriller that’s at once a whodunit and a who-will-do-it.” Publishers Weekly
“There’s a reason Joe Barrett succeeds as narrator in so many audiobooks. He has a particularly dynamic and intriguing style. Freeman’s second Cab Bolton mystery is a soaring, complex thriller…Barrett voices just enough to give his characters definition. Where he excels is in imbuing all of them with feeling, passion, and temperament in sync with the story line…His delivery is complex, but Barrett never loses the thread of the story.” AudioFile

Narration is so bad I can't listen

This narration is so bad and distracting that I can't listen more than a few minutes at a time. I have reviewed over 400 audiobooks and this narrators voice is depressing and again I say a distraction from the story. The story was not interesting although another narrator would help that also I'm sure.
