This was a good book. I read The Da Vinci Code first, so I am doing things a bit backwards. I thought the things I "knew" would happen because of the knowledge of what happens in the next book, made this book a bit less intense. I certainly was drawn back to the book often. It was hard to get a long time to listen and at times I found the book distracting to my other work. The narration really made a good impact. I had other people "lean in" to find out what was going on. That is a good sign and an easy way to determine if the book is worthwhile.
and then the story begins. Frank is hilarious. Sometimes I wonder what happens in police departments as the cases are being worked on. Car stripping is the main story but it follows the escapades of Frank Smith.
