    Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement? As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem.

    Where does Nocturnal: A Novel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    it is in my top three


    What other book might you compare Nocturnal: A Novel to and why?

    there are no comparisons, unlike any other story I've ever read. But Mr. Sigler's style puts him in good company with some of the greats I've listened to.


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

    i have not.


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

    A greatest hits of all your secret nightmares!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Sigler has created a completely new vision in sci fi and horror. The book's pace is fast and furious, and just the right touch of irony and humor. I believe that I will name any and all of the dogs I get in the future, Pookie! Loved it!!

    Born in the slums of Brooklyn, in the first year of the 20th century, Willie Sutton came of age at a time when banks were out of control. If they weren’t taking brazen risks, they were shamelessly seeking bailouts. Trapped in a cycle of bank panics, depressions and soaring unemployment, Sutton saw only one way out. So began the career of America’s most successful bank robber. Sutton became so good at breaking into banks, and such a master at breaking out of prisons, police called him one of the most dangerous men.

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

    In a very tight group of four, the TenderBar included.


    What other book might you compare Sutton to and why?

    Mr Muhlringer's other book because of his easy style.


    Which character – as performed by Dylan Baker – was your favorite?

    The book itself.


    If you could take any character from Sutton out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Willie, as a Brooklyn guy myself we would compare notes.


    Any additional comments?

    Two great novels in a row. If the TenderBar brought tears to my eyes,Sutton had me downright bawling. Mr Muhlringer has a great style, Sutton was fantastic, I loved it.
