I have really enjoyed the John Corey series, especially with Scott Brick as the narrator. His voice just fits the personality of the detective perfectly. This is only a 2 hour story and it is very good. I was hoping a new novel would have come out since the Panther, so I listened to this for a "fix." Even though it is short, it is fun to listen and witness Corey's humor as he solves a crime. It was actually fun listening to a story than I was able to finish quickly instead of listening for 15 hours. If you want a quick treat, it is worth the time.
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.
3 words hmmmm.
Better if longer.
Yes and no. There wasn't enough time to get to the edge of my seat before I fell off.
John Corey of course.
Scott Brick read wonderfully as he always does. You never have any doubt about what character is speaking. He is as much an actor as he is a reader.
Even though this is a short story, it was interesting, exciting. This is my first DeMille story and after hearing this one, funny, and all, I plan on getting more of the John Corey books.
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.
