  • 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.

    Overall

    Usually I really enjoy Kellerman's books, but this one bogs down and it is one of the few audio books I decided not to finish, after listening to about 3 1/2 hours, and I am deleting it from my IPod.

    America's most beloved writer, Lilian Jackson Braun, author of twenty-four Cat Who... mysteries is now the subject of a mystery herself. In this spoof by one of her most ardent admirers, her beheaded body has been discovered in the men's room of a gay bar in Lower Manhattan. The police are baffled, and so it is up to Braun's eccentric writer friend, James Q. (Qafka), and his Siamese cats Ying-Ton and Poon-Tang to solve the ghastly mystery.

    "What a disappointment!"
    Overall

    I expected a light and charming book similar to the original Lilian Jackson Braun books, since the author used her name in the title. The foul language, the way the plot drifts off, and the subject matter all add up to a big disappointment. I would like to trade this one back for another book. Wish I had read a copy from the library rather than having wasted money on this trash. I have removed it from my IPod.
