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.
I would listen and recommend anything with John Cory in it.
Can't wait for the next John Cory book!
Yes. It's not bad for a short story.
Learning more about DeMille's character, John Corey, in his younger years.
The story itself wasn't great, but OK>
He's always good.
No. Not interesting enough.
It started out a little slow, but I gave good in site to John Corey
Yes. Shows you where John Corey came from
I read it a month ago I I don't remember much about it
I was wrong. I looked around for a short story for a 2-hour ride with my wife. I've enjoyed DeMille's John Corey novels, and Scott Brick (a favorite of mine) is the perfect choice as narrator. He portrays the detective's attitude perfectly. So, when I found this gem, I was delighted by my find and not disappointed by the listen. It blends suspense with humor and was well worth the minimal expense.
Fun. Great Listen.
John Coury - Love all books where he is the protagonist. Love the ironic sense of humor.
John Coury - Scott Brick acts the character perfectly!
John Coury - Funny, sarcastic sense of humor.
This was a great short story. I finished the John Corey novels a while back and enjoyed them immensely. This was a nice addition to the series. I would have loved for it to be a full novel. It would have been great...but even still it was a good read. I'll just have to wait for the next full length novel. I'm ready for it!!!
