    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    R.C. Bray's performance is especially good because the listener doesn't notice him after a while and stays strictly in the action of the story. Very find job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is a solid terrorism-watch-out-USA mystery novel that has little mystery to it. What is engaging are the characters.

    A highly acclaimed journalistic masterpiece and true crime classic, Homicide illustrates a year in the life of the detectives of the Homicide Unit in the city of Baltimore. David Simon, a reporter for the Baltimore Sun, spent 4 tears on the police beat before taking a leave of absence to write this book.

    Larry says: "As real as it gets"
    "Great!"
    Overall

    I listened to this book on the basis of other reviews. They are right! Homicide has a terrific reader, is well written, and is a blast to listen to. This is a fun, interesting listen that should make us all appreciate detectives and policemen even more.

    Story
    (1826)

    Wounded in the line of duty, NYPD homicide cop John Corey is convalescing in rural eastern Long Island when an attractive young couple he knows is found shot to death on the family patio. The victims were biologists at Plum Island, a research site rumored to be an incubator for germ warfare. Suddenly, a local double murder takes on shattering global implications - and thrusts Corey and two extraordinary women into a dangerous search for the secret of Plum Island....

    DERALD says: "Great on par with" LION'S GAME""
    "I love John Corey!"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed all of Nelson DeMille's novels that have been put on audiobooks, and as long as Scott Brick continues to read them, I will continue to do so. What makes Plum Island so fun is the sense of humor, wonderfully sarcastic, that DeMille gives John Corey. I often listen to audible books while taking walks and with Plum Island find myself laughing out loud at Corey's assessments of people and situations. I listened to other John Corey novels before this one came to Audible, and the perspective of all that happens after this novel enriches the experience of listening to Plum Isand. Scott Brick has John Corey down pat. This is a wonderful production.
