Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Isaiah Quintabe is back in Joe Ide’s gripping PI series. AudioFile’s Jonathan Smith and host Jo Reed talk about narrator Zeno Robinson’s skills in narrating this dynamic mystery. Robinson not only provides narrative clarity and excellent pacing but also expertly voices a large cast of characters to the point where it’s hard to believe he’s this audiobook’s sole narrator. IQ’s latest case has especially high stakes: A powerful arms dealer is forcing him to solve a shooting death and threatening IQ’s girlfriend if he fails. But the main suspect? The arms dealer’s daughter, who has multiple personalities.
