    Seven years have passed since the brutal murder that tore Moe Prager's family apart and it's been six years since Moe's brushed the dust off his PI license. But when his estranged daughter Sarah comes to him with a request he cannot refuse, Moe takes a deep breath and plunges back into the icy, opaque waters of secrets and lies. Sashi Bluntstone, an eleven-year-old art prodigy and daughter of Sarah's dearest childhood friend, has been abducted.

    Where does Innocent Monster rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Squarely in the middle


    Which character – as performed by Andy Caploe – was your favorite?

    Moe himself is a lovable winner--just the other side of his prime and wise in a way that follows 'wiseguy'.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Generally, the increasing closeness between a man and the son of a lost friend.


    Any additional comments?

    Much of the plot seemed contrived and targeted to skewed to puncture the fake artsy world. Almost all of those characters fell flat. Caploe is stronger when he creates real people and leaves satiric cartooning to others.

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

    Absolutely. Its careful crafting of plot, character and language take you deep into its moment in history, while maintaining a broad human perspective. It is a detective book fashioned out of literary fabric.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Some boyhood memories can move men.


    Any additional comments?

    Mosley is among the most sophisticated writers in America's ongoing quest to formulate its complex narrative of race. Easy Rawlins speaks on many levels, in many voices, tweaking the assumptions of many audiences. Mosley will be on the classics bookshelf forever.
