📙 Boneyard Beach: A Folly Beach Mystery by Bill Noel, narrator Steve Rausch


3.9


A knock on Chris Landrum's retirement cottage door proves that he doesn't have to leave home to find trouble. His friend, Mel Evans, a marsh tour-boat captain, arrives to tell Chris that there might be a little problem. Chris is shocked to hear that the little problem is that his friend is accused of murdering a college student. Before he has enough time for that to sink in, Chris learns that another friend from Larry's shady past is threatened to be exposed by a con artist and former partner-in-crime who has moved to their South Carolina beach community. Chris and his best friend Charles, a self-appointed private detective, join a senior citizen's walking group to learn more about Larry's nemesis, but instead of the health benefits of walking and the comradery of a group of friends, he and Charles come face-to face with deception, intrigue, and murder. Mel's in jail, Larry is moments away from being arrested, and Chris escapes death by inches and must find not one, but two murderers, before they can kill again. In a new Folly Beach mystery, Chris and his cadre of quirky pals once again risk their lives for their friends, and their own, to prevent more deaths. ©2016 Bill Noel (P)2016 Bill Noel

"good story"

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. This story was pretty good. The idea of older retired-ish people investigating and participating in murders was great. It was pretty easy to figure out who at least one of the culprits was early on. Nothing to surprising but it was entertaining to listen to.

"So-So"

Boneyard Beach: A Folly Beach Mystery started out well enough, but it had a hard time holding my interest. There was nothing compelling me to keep listening, no great lead up to whodunit. It is just so, so. Steve Rausch had an easy voice to listen to, however, his character voices didn’t vary enough to be able to distinguish who was talking without the he said or she said preceding or following the dialog.
