Acclaimed television writer Marshall Karp has been lauded for his Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs mysteries, including The Rabbit Factory. These two contentious friends investigate Hollywood homicides that no one else will touch. In their second teaming, Lomax and Biggs are on the trail of a killer who knocked off one of the most despised men in the movie industry. There’s only one problem - the lead suspect just got plugged as well.

I listened to this, the second in the Lomax & Biggs series. It's a tragic story, but is not a normal mystery since we find out early on who is carrying out the killing and why. The book is better than the first, The Rabbit Factory, in that it is no longer than it needs to be; it is funnier and has more believable characters. The narrator, Tom Stechschulte, is terrific, making it much more fun to listen to than to read.
How did this book get the good reviews it got? The book was very crude, boring, predictable, and was just awful. Narrator was decent. Wanted all of the characters to die it was that bad and painful.
This is a great story - Karp's characters are lively and fun. Unfortunately, the narrator, who has a great voice, make VERY AUDIBLE mouth noises....ick! I don't want to hear all that swallowing and smacking. I listen to a lot of audio books and I've never experienced this. It kind of wrecked the listen.
