It takes quite awhile to even begin to get going. chapter 22 is where you may begin to enjoy the book. If I figured out if I could and how I could return this book before I reached chapter 22 I would have stopped listening and returned it. Unfortunately the narrators are the worst part of this audiobook. The woman sounds too glib and I don't know annoying. The so called Killer sounds like a cross between the actor Nathan Lane and a homicidal Frasier Crane. I am not a homophobe but unless Patterson wanted the killer to be a flamboyant gay man, the wrong voice actor was chosen. Personally I'd rather of had one main narrator who didn't try to affect too much of any type of personality. I have no idea how they choose the narrators but they should really try harder. My criticism of the narration is not the only thing I have a problem with. The writing in the majority of the first 21 chapters is mediocre and somewhat ham-handed!! If you can wait it out it gets better. It is a cool enough concept and hopefully that is enough!
