Publisher's Summary

Long Beach, California homicide detective Danny Beckett is pouring the weekend's first shot of vodka when the call comes in: Elizabeth Williams, a teacher at nearby Warren High School, has been brutally murdered in her classroom. When Danny arrives at the school, the blood-spattered crime scene turns even his veteran stomach. What could this young woman have done to make her the target of such a violent attack?

And what is the significance of the victim's left hand, taken by the killer as a grisly trophy? Beckett delves into the case with his usual tenacious cool, yet as he pieces together the facts, long-suppressed anguish from his own past rises up with stunning force. His hunt for the murderer soon morphs into a personal quest for atonement as he struggles to come to terms with the loss of his wife and family.

A King of Infinite Space is a riveting crime novel that serves as a memorable introduction for Danny Beckett to the ranks of fiction's favorite hardened detectives.

    Story
    "Danny and Jen are a likeable duo"

    This is the first of the Long Island Homicide series, which introduces us to Danny Beckett and his partner Jen. We get enough background on these characters to like them and want to hear more about them, along with an interesting police procedural. They're good cops with some believable issues, and no super human qualities, but manage to get their man in the end with good police work and keen intuition. Some reviews have said that it's too easy to figure out the murderer. Could be for some, but there's a long list of suspects thrown in to the mix, which leaves the reader wondering if they actually do have it right.
    What I liked the most about the story was the character development. Like Harry Bosch and Dave Robicheaux, they're not perfect but have sparked our interest enough, to keep us going back to hear more from them. Glad to see there's two more books after this one.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story


    What was most disappointing about Tyler Dilts’s story?

    The story was so predictable. It read like a TV cop show. Anyone who reads mysteries and thrillers regularly could guess the perp immediately. I listened to the whole thing expecting a big surprise because I couldn't believe that someone would waste time writing a whole book towards such an obvious end. Unfortunately, he did.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    His female voices are laughable. Maybe one like that would be okay. But all of them? Otherwise, his gruff detective voice was okay.
