I don't usually go for this type of genre and was pleasantly surprised by realism of the content. It is almost futuristic-ally believable. The narration was deep, soft yet peaked my continued interest in the story line.
I am usually expecting an exciting adventure when it comes to espionage, or at least intriguing. This was simply a sad love story.
I liked this book! It was different, not your average cop-detective story, nor your run-of-the-mill who done-it. The characters are so realistic some of them could be my own brothers. I missed them once the story ended. It also paid respect to the police, not making them all out to be dumb-clucks. In fact, most of them were not only kind, but also had great intellectual input. It may have dragged a little, yet it always came back with flair. My first listen with this narrator, who also seemed to have a great intellectual input, along with female voices his own mother, should be proud of. Good Show!
I have been reading who-done-its for thirty years, no other book compares to this. It's in a league of it's own. Original plot line, charactures and completely different approach to solving crime. I seems in crime writting today there is a standard routine to all of them, but not this one.
My favorite scene was the night he went into the house and felt ....well..creepy. So creepy they left.
It was particually moving when his father goes to his first race; nothing like it, he gets addicted.
I miss listening to this, I am addicted.
I read and love many older romantic style dectective novels and thought this would hold true. However perhaps I choose a book intended for the adolescent reader, as it was read too slowly. The story is also slow, and I am not much in to Sunday morning sermons. So when the Sunday morning sermon droaned on and on, I lost interest.
