"Westlake [has] establish[ed] himself as one of the hippest, coolest, funniest mystery writers out there." (New York Magazine)
"The funniest mystery of the year." (Charles Champlin, Los Angeles Times)
This book would have been hard to take when reading copy. To listen to the audio version was painful! The reader does terrible, sterotypical Southern accents. The author slams Southerners at every opportunity. The plot is hard to believe -- I mean, who doesn't know that the prosecution goes first in a trial! This one isn't worth the time, effort or money. Skip it!
I have been listening to audio books for years and the only one that I have listened to that was worse was one written by Marilyn Quayle and her sister... The only reason that it is still holding top spot is because either she or her sister read the thing... and they were far worse than the poor dear who had to struggle through this one...if the author wants to be a country music star...go to Nashville.... by the time it finished (and I thought it never would) I wanted All of the characters, with the exception of the fat woman attorney, to be locked up!!! Not funny, not suspensful, not romantic, not apt, not well written, not hip, not witty, not nothing.
