Long Lost by Harlan Coben

This is a tough one to rate because you know how I feel about Myron Bolitar ;0)... but (you knew that was coming, right?) the reader is not the guy that I came to love. I listen to this series rather than read it and 1-7 (I think) were read by a great narrator. #8 was read by the author and that was bad, bad, bad. This one was read by a third guy and he did a really good job for the most part. He used a passable French accent, had a pretty strong British sound, and he didn't do too bad with the female characters with the exception of Esperanza. Every time he did Esperanza he made her sound like Kermit the Frog. At each of her speaking parts I kept expecting her to say 'Hey, hey Kermit the Frog here...'.

Otherwise; it was a decent mystery- pretty status quo when compared to the others in the series.
