    Hollywood's newest wunderkind is Peter Alan Nelson, the brilliant, erratic director known as the King of Adventure. His films make billions, but his manners make enemies. What the boy king wants, he gets, and what Nelson wants is for Elvis Cole to comb the country for the airhead wife and infant child the film-school flunkout dumped en route to becoming the third biggest filmmaker in America.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and have. It's Pike and Cole enough said.


    What other book might you compare Lullaby Town to and why?

    Voo Doo River, child seeks parent instead of parent seeking child.


    What does Mel Foster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Drama Humor Suspense, he makes my mouth twitch.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and almost did, while driving from Virginia to Florida


    Any additional comments?

    Does RC have a Pinocchio clock in his office?

    Elvis Cole is just a detective who can't say no, especially to a girl in a terrible fix. And Jennifer Sheridan qualifies: Her fiance, Mark Thurman, is a decorated L.A. cop with an elite plainclothes unit, but Jennifer's sure he's in trouble - the kind of serious trouble that only Elvis Cole can help him out of.

    Would you listen to Free Fall again? Why?

    Yes, there is always a detail missed that you find later.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Poitros and Grimes, they never allow their personal feelings towards Pike to keep them from helping to see justice is done.


    What about Mel Foster’s performance did you like?

    Voice and inflection gives realism to varied characters of gender and ethnicity.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Elvis Cole, reserve chute for those of poor judgement.


    Any additional comments?

    As much as I would like to see any of the Pike and Cole series go to film, I feel the style, story, and characters would not be done justice much like the works of Stephen King.
