I Could Not Figure This One Out!

Any additional comments?

I really need to start reading and listening to books in order.

Every time Dick would hook up with someone I'd be screaming in my head, "What about John???? He doesn't deserve to be cheated on, he's been through so much pain already!" lol. Now I'm desperate to know how they ended up together and if it was before or after Chris. 🙀


From the plot to the characters to the performance, everything was perfect about this little murder mystery!!! I had absolutely no idea who the murderer was until the very end. I LOVE these types of mysteries. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 1-10-2015

A great way to travel

I have loved every book I have read by Dorien Grey and now I get even more pleasure by listening to them.
The Hired Man is the 4th book in the Dick Hardesty mystery and I was lucky enough to get a free copy in return for an honest review.
Dorien Grey's books are well thought out and well written. What I really love about them is that there are clues throughout the book to who the culprit is but they are not obvious - you just have to pay attention.
I own a hard copy of every book that Dorien has written and I also buy the ebooks as soon as they become available.
Now I am adding audio books to my collection. I do a lot of long distance driving and I really love listening to a book while on a trip. It really makes the time go quickly. Even though I have read this book more than once this past weekend I listened to it and the experience was great.
The choice of the narrator was an inspired one. Dorien himself has told us that he has deliberately never physically described Dick Hardesty but the voice chosen for this book is perfect to me. I have my own ideas as to what the main character is like and this voice is exactly what I imagine Dick Hardesty would have.
I found it easy to download the book from Audible and put it on to my iPod so if anyone is concerned that getting an audiobook is too hard don't worry about it.
I highly recommend The Hired Man.
