Audiobook Review: The Boyfriend by Thomas Perry

Book: The Boyfriend (Jack Till #2)
Author: Thomas Perry
Narrator (if applicable): Robertson Dean

Release date (if applicable): Published

Synopsis: Jack is back. This time, he has been hired to find the killer of a high priced call girl. In his investigation he uncovers that this isn't the killer's only victim. He has a path of victims behind him and not all are escorts. 
My rating: 4 Stars (5 for narration)
My opinion: LOVED this story! I listened to it in audio form and the narrator was PERFECT! I ended up giving this book 4 stars because I thought the author wrapped the book up too quickly. I thought it sort of had a "WHAM, BAM, THANK YOU, MA'AM" ending. Otherwise...dang perfect! In fact, I bought #1 and #2 of the book for my husband in print form as part of his Father's Day gift. The only reason why I grabbed print over audio for my husband is that he reads as we watch TV so audio would have been too inconvenient. If it is the same narrator, I plan on grabbing #1 in audio.

Specifically to the narration, could Tantor have chosen a more perfect narrator? Robinson Dean gave Jack Till a "Dirty Harry" voice that fit him perfectly! I was sucked in and didn't get out until the last word.

Would I recommend? : See above and I already have. Go for the audio over the print if you have an opportunity. I really loved the narration on this book. 
Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Part of series
