My problem was not dark edginess portraying greed, revenge, violence and sex, the whole structure should of this a great listen for me. It was the plot and continuity errors -I personally found it all over the place.Sadly the sound effects where too off putting for me also.
Every time I got emotionally invested in a character (well mostly anyway) they disappeared out the story. I didn't get into many of the characters heads except maybe Miamours. Too much going on and not enough background or info. It was like a a badly cut jigsaw puzzle where they had been forcibly jammed together to make them fit.
Not for me..
Would you listen to The Cartel again? Why?
yes, on my way to purchase parts 2 & 3, can't wait to start listening.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Mecca, was my favorite, lots of drama in every scene he was in. never knew what frame of mind he was in
Which scene was your favorite?
when Breeze was abducted by the murda mama's and killed
If you could take any character from The Cartel out to dinner, who would it be and why?
NONE, I may not have made it home, they all seemed to be killers at heart.
Any additional comments?
this book reminds me of the Dutch trilogy, by Teri Woods, it was also a great audio to listen too, well worth the money. the narrator Cary Hite was great, reminds me of Erza Knight.

This book was such a thrill to listen to. I have been waiting for more Ashley and Jaquavis audiobooks because after I had listened to Murderville I was definately hooked on their story line and the way that these to authors draw their characters and play out their story with so many twists and turns throughout the book things you would have never imagined how things would turn out. Cary Hite is amongst one of my most favorite narrators, the way that he can change his voice and go in and out of character is amazing. It seems like there are a lot of uptight people who comment on books with a lot of sex scenes or harsh language, but I loved everything about this book. It was raw and uncut gives you a taste of the real world and that is another reason that the author's have captivated me. If you don't like to hear detailed sex scenes or murders or don't like crude language then dont listen to this book. I love all the gorey details and can picture the scenes in my head, pain and pleasure. My favorite characters were Money aka Monroe and Lena and that twist in the book. I never expected what happened to happen so once you hear that part you will know what I mean. This family's story had me at the edge of my seat and I am ready for parts 2 and 3 which are downloading right now and will be commenting on them shortly. I give this book two thumbs up along with two big toes.
