Good Listen!

Both the author and narrator were new to me, and I find both are very talented. I loved the twists in this cozy mystery and did not see them coming. I liked the progression in this book and the imagery. The premise of the book was a little far-fetched, but added to the story. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more books by this author and narrator. Without giving away spoilers, the ending was great.

Clever mystery

An exciting and page-turning mystery. Who are the bad guys and who are the good guys. Difficult to tell. A hint of romance. Satisfying in so many ways, especially the ending.

Good Narration & Story

Dez once a Detective is always one, it seems. Didn’t find what he needed in a bottle, or moving to sunny Florida. A widow comes for help how can he refuse when he wants something to get interested in. A good light cozy mystery that was well done. Enjoyed the audio narration which was good. Given ARC audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Retirement is no picnic

This is the first book by this author I have listened to and I quite enjoyed it, even if it was a bit short The story had a number of twist, that I didn't see coming but the story was easy to listen to. I am not sure it was a cozy mystery and thought it was more a modern detective/police procedural as they didn't go around asking questions of suspects, it was more following evidence. Still enjoyable and I will be keeping an eye out for more books by this author.
Dez after the death of his partner turns to drink. Coming out the other side of the bottle the detective moves to Florida for the quiet life of retirement. But when you are a good detective, sitting on the beach all day gets old very quickly and it doesn't take much for him to join the police force and in the process he makes on to a hit man's hit list. While investigating a shooting he discovers a connection to his partner death and a ring of hit man for hire. Every time he get close to tugging the string, the puppet master snips another wire and a body falls at his feet. Can Dez unwind the tangled web before he becomes the next victim? With conspiracy, deception and treachery it will be a tall order.
The narrator was okay but didn't really have much range for all of the voices did in the story.

ENTERTAINING, WELL-WRITTEN STORY

Listened to this in a day's commute (both ways haha), and really enjoyed it. It was well-written, entertaining, and narration was good. I love a good mystery, and this one didn't disappoint. There's only so much you can get into in that amount of time, but I think for a quick, light, and very entertaining read, it's worth the time :)

Great book.

I enjoyed this audio book. Skyler Morgan is the narrator of this book and he does a wonderful job keeps you wanting to hear more. Clark Graham is a new author to me but I will be looking for more by this author. A fun interesting mystery that keeps you wanting to read more.
I was gifted this audio book with the understanding that I will leave an honest review.

this book has so much potential.

this book has potential, the biggest mark against it is the monotone of the narration, it really hurts this audio book, the beginning is great the build up is awesome but the climax kinda falters and falls flat , I had such high hopes for this book halfway in, really hoped that the author could pull it off, if only he had milked it and turned it in to a series, now it has a rushed climax and non-believeable finish.
on the bright side I enjoyed the extras that were in the story, I beleve this author has the talent to write great books and should get narration done by someone like Nick Sullivan.
