    Story
    Where does L.A. Requiem rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you like this type of detective story, it ranks very high with other books of this type. As I have read all of Robert B. Parker's stories, I needed something similar for light reading who-done-its. This series is fun, action packed and not too heavy of a story. The characters are very believable for the time period in which it is set in L. A. area.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of L.A. Requiem?

    Finding out the history of Joe Pike was most interesting part of the story.


    What does John Bedford Lloyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lloyd's reading does set the mood for the story better than just reading it. You would loose some of the detail of the culture if it were just read from the book.


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

    Do the good guys always win?


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend the entire series of these stories. It would be better if you started with the first book and read the series in roughly the order they are written. If you like the L. A. area or are curious about the culture during the time period of the stories, these books have a good historical perspective as well.
