Slow

Struggled to finish. Though I enjoyed the language at first, the story eventually drowned in all the details.

Great new slant on American detective work.

Where does Night Watch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I first listened to Terminal City, I was captivated by the interactivity between the caractures. So I have chosen on other book by Linda Fairstein. The caractures are still as interactive and believable. I love the way Mike has this thing about Jepordy and his historic quotes while discussing a case. Alex clearly has this love hate relationship with Mike and it works so well.

Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Only with the last book I listened to. Her presentation of the caractures is just great, I love the way she portrays Mike you can just imagine that there is a person just like that out there.

Highs & Lows

Any additional comments?

I actually originally bought the ebook to read, but gave up because I was so frustrated by the French male characters at the start - both the boyfriend Luc & the police chief in Mougins. I switched to the audio version because it often helps me push through. I'm glad I did.

The storyline about preparing the prosecution of 'MGD' (Fiarstein's fictional version of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case) was Fairstein at her best. As with some of her other work, it is evident you're experiencing the situation as only an insider could tell it.

The other storyline about the murders associated with the restaurant industry eventually picked up and stopped feeling like such an uphill effort to get through. That said, Alex's response to her relationship with Luc is unspeakably aggravating. I take comfort from the fact that Fairstein is clearly working her way towards getting rid of him.

With respect to Rosenblat's reading, I can't say I'm crazy for the way she does the two male cops (Mike & Mercer), but she is to be commended for her talent in reading and portraying a story packed with varying accents. I particularly enjoyed her rendition of the maid/accuser in the MGD case.
