as i said, it killed time in traffic
a little less "good ole boys" club type attitude.
didn't really have one.
it wasn't a waste....
wouldn't really recommend as an interesting read. couldn't get into the virgil flowers character. will not continue with this series.
This book took me forever to listen to because I kept falling asleep. The narrator was as flat as the State of Kansas. The story was ok, but there was too much down time between action and contemplations. I did not enjoy it.
This is an excellent book. The story is good; the characters are well developed and the plot progresses at a good pace. What really makes this book "a must" is the narration. The narrator's voice is highly "listenable" and he does a superb job of adapting his tone and inflections to differentiate the various characters. Overall, the story keeps the listener engaged and eager for the next chapter.

Virgil Flowers is a laid back version of Lucas Davenport. A little more chill, a little more slick and a much better fisherman. The format is the same as the Davenport books, but the characters are different enough to make it work. Plus, we get more Jenkins and Shrake...
I think I would like a little deeper character development.
Yes, I think I will, I'm intrigued.
It was a fine performance, a clear narrative style and distinct character voices.
Since it's part of book series, I think it would do better as a movie series. I can't think who I'd like to see play the parts, most of the actors I'd choose would be too old for the parts.
Virgil is the modern day knight in shining armor who gets the girl and the dragon while also getting the wicked witch of the west.
Good story, complicated and interesting. Good characters. The narrator was good for the most part but he could be just a tinsy wooden at times. Not a lot just a bit now and then. It wasn't enough to stop me from listening to anything else he does.
Good characters and plot development. This is a big macho detective and that gets a little much at times. But overall a good listen.
