Book Length

The length of the book Carter Diamond 1 and 2 could have been one book.

Worth the read

Story was good enjoyed the book. I heard people complain about performance before however, I did not experience that was bad, till now. I just realize how important the narrator is to a book on audible.

Way too short

I am upset the story wasn't longer. I've purchased almost every book you both have written together and separately. I love this genre of books.

not yet impressed but will keep reading!

The story seems too simplistic and predictable. The characters are underdeveloped. I've heard good reviews about this series so I'm willing to try the next book but this one left a lot to be desired.

New 2 Narration

Something new is always best when needed. I searched for the paperback everywhere. Their series deserves television.
