    Mayhem. You won't find this story on television. Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan. Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research", Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life.

    Any additional comments?

    Almost from the beginning this was a disappointment. The signature sharp wittiness of the series was soft in this book, clues were so broad so early that Dexter seemed dim to have missed them so completely, logic errors-occasionally present but forgivable in other books in the series- were so glaring as to be distracting. Love the series but not this entry into it.

  • My Dog Tulip

    Story

    Distinguished British man of letters J. R. Ackerley hardly thought himself a dog lover when, well into middle age, he came into possession of a German shepherd named Tulip. To his surprise, she turned out to be the love of his life, the “ideal friend” he had been seeking in vain for years. My Dog Tulip is a bittersweet retrospective account of their 16-year companionship, as well as a profound and subtle meditation on the strangeness that lies at the heart of all relationships.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The first half of the story was very touching but there came a point at which he could not stop referring in reverential language about his dog's beautiful vulva, etc. Very creepy!!!!!

    Edgar Roy - an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered....

    "Good story - horribly distracting narrator!"

    How could the performance have been better?

    Switching between male/female narrator was distracting and annoying. The female narrator overplayed the characters and was inconsistent in her portrayals. McLarty did a fantastic job on the previous book and didn't need a co-pilot - especially one as frustrating to listen to as Cassidy!
