What would have made Abandoned Prayers better?
I spent years as a cop and don't consider myself a prude, but this book was one I could barely get through, more about his sex life than a crime book. I also listened to Starvation Heights by the same author and it was alright. This book was just way too much even for a person who spent a life time in law enforcement. I am amazed that anyone gave this book higher ratings.
Has Abandoned Prayers turned you off from other books in this genre?
No I would never let one book or even author sour me on other books or authors. However I do have another crime book in my library that tells a terrible story, (beyond bad), hopefully it will be told in such a manner to not totally turn off the listener.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator was ok, it's just too bad what he had to work with.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Honestly... none that I can think of, it was just way to much after listening for just a short time I would want to turn it off. I kept listening thinking maybe it would get better, but no such luck.

The story was interesting, but it was so complex with so many different characters, I had trouble keeping track of who was who and what their role was in the story. It was a true story, so it is what it is, but I can't help thinking that some of this could have been edited down to make for a better flow. I was not put off by the sexual detail as I think this was central to the main character. The performance was solid. It was worth a listen, but not something I'm going to tell everyone they need to hear or read.
