    Derek Strange is a rookie cop, the job he's dreamed of since he was a boy. His brother, Dennis, has not been as fortunate; home from the service with a disability pension and zero prospects, he is a man with good intentions but bad habits. Derek has always looked out for Dennis, but no amount of brotherly love can save him from the dangerous world of Alvin Jones, a local bottom-feeder, hustler, and stone killer who draws him into his web of violence.

    If I woulda known that for some reason this book needed a overbearing musical soundtrack at all the wrong moments, I coulda saved myself the money on this one. I shoulda just said NO.
    Please, it certainly ruined this book for me... at times i could not hear the narrator. I was in format 2 which might not be conducive to quality music...but listen folks ... if i want to watch TV i will... please do not impose a soundtrack - hey we like the books the way they are. Or at least identify when a book has a significant soundtrack so that I can avoid them. OTher than that this book coulda been a contender for a good quick read .. :^ )

    I love the author ... but the reader in this one is pure torture to listen to... I had to give up after a few hours. It was taking away from the wordsmithing that I admire so much with the author. Do yourself a big favour and go and get the novel in print, snuggle up somewhere on a rainy day and enjoy it. Peace

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.
