Like the best Law & Order episodes, Wolf's story combines just enough personal drama with a tight police procedural to keep things moving and keep you engaging. Definitely kept me interested and surprised until the end.
I've listened to dozens of Audible books during my 2-hour-plus daily commute, and I don't know if any book has held my attention so completely from beginning to end. The story was fascinating, engaging, and well-written, and R.C. Bray's narration was absolutely spot-on. He captured the voice of the character, as well as the tragedy and comedy of the writing, with laser precision. I've convinced several people to start reading this book, and it's become one of my go-to recommendations for people looking to start listening to audiobooks.
I've been a Neil Gaiman reader since the nineties, and this might be his best work to date. I listen to audiobooks during my commute, so books that have a long, slow start tend to lose my interest. Not the case here. After a very brief introduction to the characters and the world, things get fascinating very quickly. And it's a fresh, surprising story, all the way through.
Not only that, but Neil does a terrific job narrating his own work (which can't be said for all authors). He really brings each character to life.
