    Good friends and sometime rivals William Fleisher, Frank Bender, and Richard Walter—a renowned FBI agent turned private eye, a sculptor lothario who speaks to the dead, and an eccentric profiler known as “the living Sherlock Holmes”—were heartsick over the growing tide of unsolved murders of innocents. They decided one day over lunch that something had to be done, and pledged themselves to a grand quest for justice.

    What did you love best about The Murder Room?

    I had never heard of Vidocq Society until I listened to the this book! It was unbelievable that a group of detectives existed without society really knowing anything about them and yet they do what they without any fanfare!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Murder Room?

    I loved listening to narrator discuss Richard Walter go after the bad guys! I wouldn't buy any "Green Bananas" is such a great quote! But his Cold Read of a Photo in front of Scotland Yard was Brillant


    Have you listened to any of Adam Grupper’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not yet, but I would! His voice and inflections were EXCELLENT


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

    If you think you can get away with Murder! Think again!


    Any additional comments?

    This was my Favorite Audio book EVER! Great Story! Great Narrator, Great True Crime!

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    CoCo says: "Excellent and engaging"
    "Return of John Corey!"

    The stress and strain that Daniel Burnham went through to get the Worlds Fair done! Herculean task!
