A Deeper Sleep, Audio Version (2007) Dana Stabenow narrated by Bernadette Dunne

Louis Deem has been getting away with murder for years. He’s killed three wives, but has gotten off every time; no jury in the park is willing to risk his retribution.

Kate Shugak and every other decent person wants him locked away–wants young women to be safe from his predations–but none of the cases will stick, and no young woman in his clutches will believe a word against him.

I’ve been wanting to re-read this series for awhile, but the ebooks never go in sale, and the library doesn’t have any of the books I want to re-read earlier in the series. At a loss for what to read after finishing all the Patricia Briggs book, I decided to borrow the oldest Kate Shugak book the library had: A Deeper Sleep.

This is NOT an action/adventure kind of mystery. Which was a problem because I prefer to listen to action-packed books since they keep me exercising / doing chores just a little bit longer, so I can listen to just a little bit more.

But since I started it, I decided to finish it. It was the end that reminded me why, despite the lack of action, this book was so good.

I’m not sure I want to listen to another book–it’s just not the right kind of story for my listening needs–but now I really want to go back and re-read some more of these stories.

Let me be clear, I didn’t have any issues with the narration or the narrator. It was very good. This just wasn’t the kind of book that works as well as I want for the kind of listening I do.
