    In "Dying in the Post-War World", Heller returns from combat to find his marriage in shambles and himself square in the middle of the notorious Lipstick Killer case of 1946. "Kisses of Death" follows the PI into the 1950s, when he is hired to guard Marilyn Monroe. Finally, in "Strike Zone", Heller is hired by baseball boss Bill Veeck to investigate the 1961 murder of a famous pinch hitter whose private life will pull Nate into a dangerous new world of little people and big sins.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - Collins historic detail and feel for the times and the places make all the Heller books great reads.

    A routine investigation of an open-and-shut case is just what PI Ray Dudgeon needs to recover from the physical and emotional consequences of confronting the Chicago Outfit - until "routine" spirals out of control. The victim was no quiet, unassuming, unlucky single woman; she lived a double life in the shadowy realm of covert intelligence...and she died for the truth.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Trigger City to be better than the print version?

    Don't know.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Ray Dudgeon stays one step ahead of me, and I'm pretty good.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time


    Any additional comments?

    My first, but not last, from this author.

    In 1968, Robert Pirsig and his son, Chris, made the cross-country motorcycle trip that was the basis for Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, a book that has inspired generations with its searching personal and philosophical narrative. After rereading the book at the onset of middle age, reporter Mark Richardson tuned up his old Suzuki dirt bike and became a "Pirsig Pilgrim".

    Overall

    As a more than middle aged ZMM fan whose '61 BMW has not yet, and may never, make the pilgirmage of the Zen Riders, I find that Richardson's musings parallel some and suggest others I might have on the ride. Darren is correct - if you want to read about Pirsig, this is not the audiobook for you. But keep in mind that Pirsig's advice to Richardson when he declined an interview was that if you want to know an author read his books, don't talk to him. I suggest that if you want to read about ZMM, then you need to go to DiSanto and Steele's Guidebook [as Richardson had]. But if you want to experience the ZMM pilgrimage but can't make the trip[yet], then this book is for you. Richardson's story is fun, interesting, introspective and full of vicarious adventures and experiences of the real thing, in route, in spirit and in thought.
