Great Value Pack for Lanyon fans
I'd certainly recommend to any fans of Josh Lanyon's writing. It gives a good flavour of some varied stories.
Out of the six stories, three are counted as in my 'favourites' for the author - Dark Horse, Cards on the Table and Don't Look Back . All of them are classic Lanyon with an engaging story, great sense of place and character, and a good mystery. One other one - Lovers and Other Strangers - was very good. The other two didn't work so well for me but that was more to do with the stories themselves than the narration. I thought Blood Red Butterfly was a little dull and A Vintage Affair is excellent right up until a scene towards the end which I felt marred the remaining of the story.
I wasn't sure about Lance Greenfield at first but his voice grew on me and he was good at nuanced distinctions between the characters. Really liked Chris Gebauer's voice for A Vintage Affair. He set a good pace and drew me into the story quickly, plus I could easily tell between the characters. Jason Clarke was also good but at times I struggled to differentiate between who was talking,
Overall, if you are looking to try out this author, then this is very good value at over 24 hours of listening, plus you get a nice range of stories.
