Summary

While the town of Harding grapples with a catastrophic and unexpected flood, a young businesswoman is found dead, beaten to death on the steps of her father's mansion.

Detective Kyle Villante gets his first call after coming off a two-year undercover stint that ended in a bloodbath and marred his reputation with the brass. But he doesn't get to work the case alone. Detective Solomon Aduwo of the State Police has arrived in Harding to assist with the investigation. Villante bristles at the perceived leash around his neck, but he and Aduwo set out to work the case, all while Villante struggles to keep secrets and ghosts of the past from coming back to haunt him. Meanwhile, Aduwo has come to Harding with secrets of his own and an agenda that could doom Villante's future.

Murder Upstream is a thrilling mystery, full of vivid characters, puzzling questions, action, and suspense.

"...like being driven under water.*

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I really enjoyed every minute of this book: great, quirky story well written and narrated; plenty of action without too much overt violence; good dialogue and intriguing characters with real personalities, and a mystery - who killed the heiress? -, plus hidden secrets of the two investigating officers.
There are additional depths to this story, as well, and both of the unlikely paired detectives Villante and Aduwo, have to face up to their own internal moral issues. So much is packed into this story. But never think it is heavy - just the opposite. It is a really fun listen as the water rises and a murderer is sought. Andrew Tell's narration is fast paced, clear and the voices he uses in dialogue clearly differentiate the speakers, enhancing an already excellent story.
My thanks to the rights holder who gifted me a copy of Murder Upstream, via Audiobook Boom. I have not previously read any of Mark Hazard's work but will be looking out for more by him in the future, as well as further books narrated by the talented Mr.Tell.
So, yes, I can and will recommend this book to my friends.
