Entertaining story read by a great narrator
I've listened to this a couple of times and also had it in the car with my partner who enjoyed the story.
Good story line with humour and pathos - well recommended!

Enjoyable audiobook of a great story
I have already read this, so I was looking for another way to enjoy the book whilst I'm driving etc. and this did not disappoint. The two main characters personalities came across as completely different and embodied who I felt them to be in the book. I have listened to other books by Paul Morey, and to start with I wasn't sure if the voices would resonate too much with the other book characters for me to separate them but within about 10 minutes, he was Sam and Jory and maintained those personas throughout the book.

Time is the answer...
I enjoyed the story for the most part. The backstory was a bit confusing. I am not sure if it was because of the main character Jory's ADD or what but I found myself lost on a couple of occasions and I had to go back to pick up the story. Perhaps it's my own ADD kicking in. Additionally, I found it difficult to relate to Detective Kage or even like him for that matter. However, as the end of book 2 drew to a close, I finally began appreciating Sam Kage. The ending was exciting and engaging with a typical cliff hanger...now I have to get started on Volume two.

Many characters but very little story.
What did you like best about Matter of Time: Vol. 1? What did you like least?
Sam is a great character. His internal conflict is believable. Jory is a weak character who needs to get over himself. The lesser characters are nearly all well written but there are far too many of them. When we meet a secondary character we also meet his coworkers and most of his family. However, few of them contribute to the actual story line.The exciting thread of the book is supposed to be that hit men are after Jory. Apparently they are all bumbling idiots. Jory freely follows all his standard routines of home, work, and clubbing, but is seldom threatened by those who are chasing him.Jory's interactions with the people who love him, are bitchy at best.The narrator is great. He creates believable, likable voices for each character and accurately switches to the correct voices throughout the dialogs.
Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Calmes again?
