Seinfeld's Wayne Knight's first foray into audiobooks

Wayne Knight did a great job of creating the voices, especially those of Martin's mother and Unique (You-nee-quay). Knight's comic timing was a big help with some weak material.
This is my second Karin Slaughter book (both this summer) and I am not going to read her anymore.
Slaughter spends nearly half of the book just setting up the characters and then she just wraps it all up like she was on a deadline and she just had to get some sort of ending on the story. This book just clunks to an end - sort of Twilight Zone-esque but not like one of the good episodes. More like one of those bad ones where you look at the person next to you and say, "That's it?"
Wayne Knight's performance turns a one-star review into two stars. I hope he reads a lot more audiobooks, just not Karin Slaughter's books.
I rate this audiobook 2 stars out of 5.
