I liked the hero, Sargent McQueen. He seemed likable and I also felt I might want to read or listen to another novel about him.
I thought he was good but that he did not try too hard to make it dramatic. He did not overselll it.
Yes, I thought it was interesting. I liked the details of working for such a high profile team.
My favorite character was Terry Francona.
No, I haven't.
Even for a more casual baseball fan, this is really good.
It is pretty good. It is enjoyable and sillly at times. It was interesting to see Lestrade at work.
I liked Lestrade, he came across as dedicated to his job. I liked his dealings with Sherlock Holmes. I
I might want to listen to another book in the series.
Richard Ferrone, the narator, is often very good. He is probably one of the best of the audio book readers working currently. Also I liked the plot. It was set in the recent past and it is about a man who claims to have committed three perfect crimes. In fiction at least, I like the idea of a perfect crime.
I've listened to several of Richard Ferrone's other performances and he is usally really good. I can't recall him giving a bad performance.
Bill Pronzini, the author, is often very good. He might be best known for his Nameless Detective series, which is excellent, but some of his standalone novels are also worth reading or hearing.
It was a good book. It is about the history of the mystery genre, some of the worst books in the genre. It was a lot of fun.
I liked the chapter on the publishing house Phoniex Press. That chapter was really enjoyable.
