  • True Detectives: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 20 mins)

    In Jonathan Kellerman's gripping novels, the city of Los Angeles is as much a living, breathing character as the heroes and villains who roam its labyrinthine streets. Sunny on the surface but shadowy beneath, this world of privilege and pleasure has a dark core and a dangerous edge. In True Detectives, Kellerman skillfully brings his renowned gifts for breathless suspense and sharp psychological insight to a tale that resonates on every level and satisfies at every turn.

    A User says: "Disappointing"
    "Intriguing new characters, even better in audio"
    Overall

    One benefit of the audio version is hearing the brothers use different voices with each other than they use out in the world. Introducing a private detective solves the problem of having a wealthy retired psychiatrist sitting long stakeouts for no compelling reason. Kellerman's distaste for Christians still obtains, but once again he manages to tolerate faith in powerless women.

    Landing a minor part in the Empire Theatre Eastbourne’s Christmas production of Cinderella, Charles Paris soon discovers that his main role is to gently introduce the show’s baffled American star, Kenny Polizzi, to the bizarre customs of English pantomime. During their sessions in the local pub, Charles finds himself increasingly caught up in Polizzi’s tangled affairs. But Charles is about to be far more involved than he might wish when he stumbles across a body beneath Eastbourne Pier.

    Simon Brett is a canny observer of regional theater, actors, alcoholics, and critics' reviews. I enjoyed learning about British panto.

    Former FBI agent and psychological profiler Robert Payne is on the trail of a serial killer. A 12 year old girl has been murdered and mutilated, and the detective assigned to the case wound up dead. Now Nora Conners, the girl's wealthy mother, has hired Payne to solve the murder and bring closure. After narrowing his search to three men, a televangelist, a honey salesman, and an art teacher, all living in the small Iowa town of New Hope, Payne begins to narrow the field, posing as a journalist.

    Sarah says: "A good writer, a great narrator, but. . ."
    "Acceptable plot, inadequate characters"

    Story

    Most memorable moment: former FBI agent who has been fired on twice is taken unaware for the third time in a row. He is too distracted by his thoughts to notice being tailed after telling us it is hard to tail a car in a small town. Reading is competent but uninspired.
