    Description

    The Statfire Breeze steams its way north toward the Gulf of Alaska, buffeted by crisp sea winds blowing down from the Arctic. Those on board are seeking peace, relaxation, adventure, escape. But there is no escape here in this place of unspoiled natural majesty. Because terror strolls the decks even in the brilliant light of day...and death is a conspicuous, unwelcome passenger. And a former Seattle policeman, a damaged homicide detective who has come to heal from fresh, stinging wounds, will find that the grim ghosts pursuing him were not left behind...as a pleasure cruise gone horribly wrong carries him inexorably into lethal, ever-darkening waters.

    "Birds of Prey is as much a tale of human frailty as it is a page-turning mystery." (Tampa Tribune)

    Huge Disappointment

    I have listened to all 14 previous JP Beaumont novels. They were great!! I could NOT believe the disappointment (to put it mildly), I felt when I began to listen to this horrific tragedy. Who ever decided to change narrators and not offer the unabridged version should be shot!!!! This was disgusting!!! The narrator was horrible not too mention not even close to Gene Engene as JP Beaumont. I am contacting Audible for a refund and the author to find out who is responsible for such a devastating decision. Don't waste your money or a credit you will be sorry.

    Entertaining

    I listen to at least one book a month and this was a great book. The narrator was great and the quick humor fun.

    A narration in monotone

    There are so many questions. Why did they change narrators so far into the series? Why did all the characters have the same tone, lack of inflection, and voice? Was the story that dull, or did the narration create that impression?

    Where's gene

    The story was sorely lacking and not your typical jp Beaumont series if you have listen to the previous audiobooks with gene you missed that characteristic he brings to the story

    It's Abridged!

    Would you listen to Birds of Prey again? Why?

    I seldom read a book twice but I might in this case. Why? Well, what do birds have to do with anything? I'm wondering if the title refers to something not included in the abridged version.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The default answer as to the favorite character must, I suppose, be JP Beaumont. The only character who stood out as a separate voice in the narration was his new Grandfather-In-Law.

    Any additional comments?

    I think the setting is a great way to change our perception of JP Beaumont as a cop, to JP Beaumont as a private investigator. The change in narrators was jarring at first. The new voice seems flat in comparison with Gene Engene, but the second time I came back to the story I found myself going with the flow.

    New narrator

    This is another great book by J A Jance; however, we did prefer the previous books narrator-Gene Engene.

    Great book!

    Another great JP Beaumont book. I do wish it had been available in the unabridged version though. I love the new narrator. Gene Engene had always gotten on my nerves although after listening to so many books with him narrating, it was difficult, at first, to distinguish between the characters voices. I guess I had gotten used to him after all!

    boring

    What would have made Birds of Prey better?

    The story was okay but Cotter Smith's reading was boring.

    Would you be willing to try another book from J.A. Jance? Why or why not?

    OF course I will read or listen to more of J.A. Jance books. I just will not listen to the audio is Cotter Smith is reading.

    How could the performance have been better?

    Getting someone else to do the audio reading.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story line was okay. Not one of J.A. Jance's best stories.

    Different Narrator

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes.

    What three words best describe Cotter Smith’s performance?

    It was seriously lacking in performance. I couldn't tell the different characters apart. I don't know why they changed narrators but this one did a terrible job!

    Was Birds of Prey worth the listening time?

    I'm not sure. I was listening and following along with the Kindle book. But when I bought the audio I didn't realize it was abridged. So, I had to keep stopping the audio to read the parts that were missing. The audio was missing a very large part of the book. A lot it were the types of things I have come to enjoy about the J.P. Beaumont books.

    Any additional comments?

    If you're going to butcher the book then why bother doing the audio! It left me wanting my money back! I'll continue reading the books but I don't know about the audio part, even if it is available as immersion reading.

    Narrator change

    I have really enjoyed Beaumont books until this one, when the narrator was changed. He is not as good as gene engene. Story was inf, but it really annoys me when the narrator changes and then future books do the same. I can't understand why it is not understood that the narrator is critical to the enjoyment of a book.
