This is a good story, in a series of good stories. I did NOT like the narrator, she sounded like she was reading to a group of First Graders. That would not be so bad until she was talking about the sexual scenes, it gave me the creeps.
More endearing lead detective. The story seemed to drag along, there was enough going on, it just wasn't very interesting. I hate stories that wrap things up in the last few minutes of the epilogue. I like to follow the characters a little more to after 13-14 hours of listening.
It doesn't have to be a sappy 'happy ever after', but for me it needs a little more follow through.
Make the lead characters more dynamic and engaging. Karl was a smart detective, but a bore; old, worn out, walked on by everyone in his life. Hassad (sp?) his assistant was the only bright spot in the book.
He spoke clearly but so dry.
Hoddy (sp?) the paralyzed co-worker in the hospital. The story made us think he had some involvement in solving the crimes, but he really didn't. He could have been pulled into the story much more with his brain functioning where his body couldn't. Seemed like page fillers.
The needy slutty wife, that Karl hadn't lived with in many years, had no bearing on the story. Nor did the waste product of a step son, more page fillers with no contribution to the story.
I'm sorry, I kept listening, thinking the story would redeem itself in the end, and it never happened for me.
The wit and wisdom of O'Reilly comes through.
Great life stories and high principals have you nodding and laughing at a trip through history. His history and his experiences are ours, and easy to relate to. He is indeed Bold and Fresh.
You have to admire his courage and high standards.
