An interesting set of detective stories, but this audio version is ruined by the narrator. Appalling attempts at french people speaking English, which reminds one of 'allo allo', consistent mispronunciation of names, both of people and places, and purported London accents, which are even worse than Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. Why narrators have to attempt these accents is beyond me. If the stories had been read in the narrator's own natural accent, it would have been far preferable.

This could have been a great book. But I'll never know. The narration was horrible and may made it even worse same narrator for 20+hrs. Very disappointed. Story selection was quite good but felt like I was listening to a LONG boring monotone lecture.

Where does The Dead Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I can't rank it, as the question asks, "among ALL the audiobooks". I've been listening to "audio" books for over 30+ years. Started with Books-On-Tape and went on, from there! :)
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
"The Book", no. The "Collection of Stories", yes, only in part. As with all collections, be they books, family photos, or the Buffet table, the "Edge of your seat" is extraneous. Individual stories however, deserve a "Yes"!
Have you listened to any of Dee Macaluso’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Not that I recall.
