The book seemed to be written in a tounge in cheek format instead of the normal John Corey investigator style.
I have read a lot of the DeMille books and enjoyed everyone except this one. So certainly I will read another one.
I was diappointed.
I Always enjoy Nelson Demille's book and as an audible I really enjoy Scott Brick over any other narrater.
This is a quick book when you run out of his other books
Scott Brick must be one of you best.
The story integing and fast paced which made it an enjoyable listen
DeMille is one of my favorites and I anxiously await his next book.
I've listened to dozens of Scott Brick's performances and as usual his reading is outstanding.
No, as a short story, with no other characters there was not enough substance.
The book is much more like going to a crime scene with John Corey than a more traditional story. It is much more like an appetizer than a meal leaving the reader hungry for more.
John Cory by far is my favorite character and who better to read it than Scott Brick.
Retired CPA Denver native. Like to reafd fiction.
I would recomennd it.
It was fast moving and fun
It did not keep me on the edge of my seat but it was very interesting
He has a very good voice
Nelson DeMille is a very good author and his works are always exciting.
Good books just make me smile!
I wish Nelson DeMille could write faster, but his stories are so good they're worth waiting for ... and John Corey is his BEST character. This was a nice glimpse of Det.Corey before he met Kate, something to hold us fans over until his next novel ... and Scott Brick is the PERFECT voice for John, his tone & inflection are pure-Corey. Thank you Nelson & I suggest everyone put this one on your wish lists!
Any prequel that gives the reader more insight to a continuing character, the motivation that remains & deepens as new plots come along.
Scott Brick has given the perfect voice; always right, while slightly sarcastic & somewhat disrespectful to his chain of command perspective that we have come to expect & love in John Corey. He makes him our
Definately ... my family was wondering why I was sitting in my car in the driveway!
Great Mini Novel.
The plot wasn't great compared to other Correy books, but the thought process of him and the sarcastic humor John Correy fans know and love was top notch.
Scott Brick IS John Correy. I'm not sure I'd even listen to a John Correy book read by someone else.
The way the ficticious author signed the book for John Correy at the end. Classic!
I wish it could have been a little longer, but if you're a John Correy fan - definitely get this and listen to it!
Always a treat to listen to Scott Brick narrate a DeMille story.
Young Sherlock Holmes,
Corey, of course.
It was a nice introduction to young detective Corey with just a glimpse of the sarcasm and humor he will develop later. I love the guy. One of my favorite characters of all time. The only drawback is that it was limited by being a short story. The whole thing was solved in less than a day. Felt a little but like a TV episode. Otherwise it would have gotten the fifth star.
No one is better
Scott Brick could read the phone book and I would listen
John Corey is the greatest detective since Sherlock Holmes and a lot funnier
