I've listened to all the Corey series and along with Harry Bosch, are my favorites. His wit,sarcasm, and Balls have me roaring with laughter at times , (my wife thinks I'm crazy sometimes though ). His heart is big yet tough as leather. His character is authentic and a true New Yorker. If this is to be your first with John, I guarantee the series will certainly keep you a long time fan of Mr DeMille. ENJOY!

I love Nelson DeMille and John Corey. I just wish it was longer, excellent and fun story. Can't wait for more DeMille.
Love Scott Brick. Compared to other writings of Mr.DeMille,,this one was very weak. Perhaps it is because it is a short story.
This was a quick but very entertaining look at John Corey as a NYPD detective. Still very astute crime solver, and the smart aleck that we all love! Scott Brick as usual totally makes John Corey come alive.
All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!
While I understand New Yorkers are supposed to be sarcastic and perhaps snarky, I really hated the snottiness of John Corey in this story.
I don't know if the tone conveyed by the reader is a function of the director on an audiobook, or if it's up to the reader's interpretation. Sorry, Scott Brick, it feels like this has become your go-to attitude in a lot of books lately.
The story was predictable and uninteresting, and I don't feel it added any value to the John Corey character.
What a nice way to solve a murder and do it without it being 15 or 20 hours long! Bring on more of these short stories
The story wasn't bad, if you can purchase it at a reasonable price and you are looking for a short, 2 hour story.
It is similar to the "Colombo" TV detective show.
