sanobia's greatest hits:
  • The Boyfriend

    "I should have been paid to listen to this book!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you try another book from Thomas Perry and/or Robertson Dean?

    Only if it was free


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas Perry again?

    Only if it was free


    What three words best describe Robertson Dean’s voice?

    compelling, expressive, nice tone


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Boyfriend?

    cut the lunch with the girls and history about the original victim. Cut the whole not sure about having sex with the call girl. and speed it up. some scenes took too long like the assination scene, the car chase, that whole killing at the last house was gratuitious.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been a customer for 3 years and this is the first time I believe you owe me a refund.

Not a writer, a writer wannabe, editor, lit maj, or pretend literary critic. Just an avid reader/listener. My ratings are opinion only.

    In that Diamond is so unlikeable that he becomes likeable. I enjoyed the story, loved the narration and will read more Diamond stories.

    Detective Superintendent Peter Diamond is the last detective: a genuine gumshoe, committed to door-stopping and deduction rather than fancy computer gadgetry. So when the naked body of a woman is found floating in the weeds in a lake near Bath with no one willing to identify her, no marks, and no murder weapon, his sleuthing abilities are tested to the limit.

    Tracey says: "Pleasantly surprised -- loved Inspector Diamond!"

    Pericles "Perry" Christo is a P.I. with a past. A one-time NYPD homicide cop, Perry has been struggling since he lost his badge, and his marriage, in a notorious corruption scandal. So when wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia Drusilla calls him one cold February night, he jumps at the chance to work what seems to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case. Julia needs Perry to track down the whereabouts of her beautiful yet aimless daughter, Angelina, who is about to become a very wealthy young heiress.
