I read book one in this series a few weeks ago and then rushed out to acquire the next tale in the DC Smith series.
What I like is that the stories are adult, realistic and not full of suspense or blood and guts. The protagonist, DC Smith, is complex and likable--and has a past that the author keeps hinting about but hasn't yet gotten around to sharing with us.
The narrator was marvelous. I did not have to keep yelling at him for pronunciation errors and the voices he chose for the various character all fit the character. In other words, the narrator blends into the background, which is how it should be.
