good story, poor narration
What would have made No Way Out better?
a different narrator, and better editing.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
good plot, kept you guessing till the end
What didn’t you like about Talece Brown’s performance?
at times I questioned if the reader was a person. very robotic cadence and strange diction on very easy names like Carter - pronounced by narrator as almost 2 separate words.. car ter
Any additional comments?
editing was also poor. many instances of repetition on what must be splice points.

I hated everything about this audio book, from the story line to the nasal reader. I've loved the Karen Vale stories of her profiling, but this was just British political espionage farfetched nonsense.
Good premise, lousy narrator
What disappointed you about No Way Out?
The narrator did no accents, though the characters were specifically described having certain accents. There was very little delineation between characters, and the narrator really had a problem with pacing.....missing commas and making sentences awkward.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Nothing with this narrator.
How could the performance have been better?
Accents done as described in the text, and an overall better sense of how to read dialogue.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The story had potential, but I have no desire to see how it ends.
Any additional comments?
Returning this book.
