I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
A good detective short based on Nelson Demille's, NYPD John Corey detective series. This was a fun, whodunit about a bookstore owner killed by one of his own bookshelves. It was interesting how ND referenced and incorporated himself as well as other famous authors into the story, and then had his detective's character comment on how he felt about each of their writing styles. A little insight into ND's favorites.
Scott Brick's voice was perfect for this rough and tumble, matter of fact character.
A nice quick read (listen). I love the character of John Corey, and this is a nice prequel to his life as a beat cop.
Wrapped up quickly. No droning on.
It's not that kind of book, lol

DeMille, Corey, Fun
John Corey. I enjoyed seeing him younger and a bit more raw here.
As usual, Scott Brick's narration was pitch perfect for Corey's voice. Bravo!
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.
