    The Nameless Detective is called upon to find out how rare books and maps are being stolen from an antiquarian bookshop with a faultless alarm system. He goes undercover in the store, only to be foiled when a theft occurs right under his nose. Then, as he ponders the case (while on a date with the lovely Kerry), he’s violently struck from behind by a car that seems bent on driving him off the road. Will Nameless survive this attempt on his life and solve the case?

    Story
    Where does The Booktaker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This story was a time passer. It had me guessing but the ending was a little weak. The reader was monotone and dry. But all in all the whole story line was really ok.
    It helped me while commuting to and from work so I would recommend this audiobook.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The ending would have been slightly different. I would have left it open for part two or made it longer with more of a twist to keep the reader's eyebrow raised.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Nick Sullivan?

    I would listen to another one and if it is as monotone I would not listen to anymore. This was my first with Nick Sullivan as the narrator.


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

    The part in the book when the detective said he knew how the booktaker was stealing the books really moved me. I would never had guessed.


    Any additional comments?

    Please use more excitement while reading and I would love to hear a part two.

    From the same author that brought you the Flint series, comes a new town...a new drama. Treasure Hernandez is back with her second street series chronicling both sides of Baltimore's black market. Derek Fuller is the head detective of the Baltimore Narcotics Division. His team has been assigned to take down the biggest drug operation in the city. There's only one problem...the head of the operation is his twin brother, Scar Johnson.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Baltimore Chronicles in three words, what would they be?

    I really enjoyed all four volumes. The twists and turns in the book had me on the edge of my seat. It took me awhile to listen to the entire four volumes because I wanted to pace myself to 30 minutes per evening. The characters were full of surprises.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Baltimore Chronicles?

    The attorney's role in the plot.


    What about Jules Williamson’s performance did you like?

    The narrator really switched from character to character smoothly and left an imaginative impression of all the scenes.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If there were more hours in a day, I could have listened to this in all one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this audio book.

    "Listen closely, 'til your attention is undivided, because the story I’m 'bout to tell will twist you up if you ain't sharp." - Dutch

    Dutch pens another mystery classic like only he can. Take a journey back in time with him - he promises to deliver this urban tale like no other.

    It can be compared to Baltimore Chronicles although the authors are different the story lines keep you drawn in like no others.

    The annunciations were great. It was read at an easy pace.


    If you could take any character from ? (Pronounced Que) out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    None I do not eat out.
