    Like father, like son.… But heredity seems to have gone a gene too far when Pal Maciver’s suicide in a locked room exactly mirrors that of his father 10 years earlier. In each case accusing fingers point toward Pal’s stepmother, the beautiful, enigmatic Kay Kafka. But she turns out to have a formidable champion, Mid-Yorkshire’s own super-heavyweight, Detective Superintendent Andrew Dalziel. DCI Peter Pascoe, nominally in charge of the investigation, finds he is constantly body-checked by his superior as he tries to disentangle the complex relationships of the Maciver family.

    Would you try another book from Reginald Hill and/or Shaun Dooley?

    "Woodcutter" was gem; is this the same author?


    What could Reginald Hill have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Liberal use of trash can for bad ideas.


    What aspect of Shaun Dooley’s performance would you have changed?

    Performance was fine; bad content.


    What character would you cut from Good Morning Midnight?

    All of 'em!


    Any additional comments?

    Wow, what a disappointment! I was really looking forward to my next Hill book.
    Any suggestions?

  • Deeply Odd: Odd Thomas, Book 6

    How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot.

    D says: "Odd Once Again"
    "Starts great; plot is MIA and dialogue pedantic."

    What would have made Deeply Odd better?

    Keep focus on the plot and continue the witty dialogue.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dean Koontz again?

    Yes, but with hesitation.


    Have you listened to any of David Aaron Baker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Have not listened to narrator previously; enjoyable.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deeply Odd?

    I couldn't justify the time to finish this book. Got lost after the "Star Truck" scene.


    Any additional comments?

    Great promise! Poor timing on the author's "acid trip", stream of consciousness experiment.

    It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert - and they can't afford to make a single mistake.

    Ann M. Lambert says: "one of the best, if not the best audio books ever"
