This is such a fun book. At first you think it's a standard PI adventure - but it goes in directions you never expect, and you really care what happens next. Great book!!
Well it has to be Parker - he's a classic tough-guy private detective, but he's got a soft spot for old people and animals. He doesn't take himself too seriously, and he's a hero!
He really captured each character and brought them to life. Each one was so different - I forgot it was one person narrating and just got lost in the story. His voice and style is perfect for this genre - really adds flavor.
I definitely would have listened in one sitting if I could. I listened to it in the car, and often found myself sitting in the driveway, to get to the end of the chapter... tempted to sit and listen to the next chapter as well!
I really enjoyed this book immensely. I'll be looking for more by this author and this narrator.... guess I'll have to start at the beginning. Hope it has both Niko and Grindle.
