The version I listened to was from "Books In Motion" read by Ron Verella. He did a good job. The quality started out poorly, but then got better. Not sure what was up with that whether it was damage to the file or not. I suspect it was just poor quality on their part since at least 3 times there were misreads & then repeats.

Great suspense mystery! This book kept me guessing and had a great unexpected ending. I love a good mystery and was not disappointed at all!
I loved Blue Moon Circus and the Castle of the Flynns, and I enjoy reading mysteries, so I was excited to learn that Raleigh had written a mystery series. I was a little surprised by how fabulous this first in the series was, I guess I just thought that his genre fiction would be flatter than his more literary work, but I was totally wrong. I enjoyed this very much, and have just ordered the rest of the series.
