Loved this short story. When I was a kid, I read a lot of my grandfather's detective dime novels. These books were a noir genre of the classic cop books of his day.
Nelson Demille's has crafted John Corey. I loved John Corey since the first novel the character appeared. John Corey is the closest thing to the classic detectives of my youth. He is the perfect cop, he is a smart, funny, cunning, flawed, emotional and deliberate. I love how this plot slowly unravels. Not to complicated to be unbelievable, but complex enough to keep you guessing. A classic who-dun-it detective novel.
Keep the coming Mr. Demille.
Love listening to stories.
Wow, some people just cannot keep their mouths shut. Darn. Take the money and run! But please be quiet. Loose lips sinks ships - darn. SHUT UP
I enjoyed the story. I would have liked more!!
Story was so short I didn't use Audible. It was a waste of my money. It cost more than the book.
No a one.
I don't think I would purchase an Audible book unless it was a really big book.
This short story takes place early in the career of John Corey where he is called in to a suspicious accident. I found the story very boring and predictable. I am glad I paid so little for it.
Has the feel of a classic crime drama. A bite-sized book, with a larger-than-life detective.
This my introduction to DeMille and Corey, and if he is like this I will listen to more of his books. I had read that Detective Corey was a smart-a_ _, but thankfully he was not like that in this short. Modern-day Sherlock Holmes, more like it.
I would highly recommend this interesting short story. Keeps you listening for sure
love his voice
Corey Solves Another.
John Corey is a great character, which DeMille has used in several books. His dry humor and stoicism are done very well.
Brick captures the ambiance of the setting and characters very well.
I like DeMille's books and have read several, so got this story to try out audible.com. I enjoyed it, although it's perhaps not his best work. Still, it is worthwhile for a quick listening experience.
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
This early John Corey is not the smart-ass I have grown to love. I'd say skip it but it takes such a shot time to listen to it why not listen.. I don't think it adds anything to the John Corey picture.
This book is on par with all the John Cory books.
Scott Brick is the PERFECT John Cory.
I am hoping that this books is not an attempt to satisify because there will be a delay in the next John Cory full book.
At just under two hours, you only get a taste of John and then the book is over.
