Boom Town | [Trevor Scott]

Boom Town

Private Investigator Tony Caruso lives out of his rolling office, an old Ford pickup truck, with his German-trained bomb-sniffing dog, Panzer, a Giant Schnauzer. Tony retired after 20 years in the Navy as an aviation ordnance man, but this training might not be enough when he is hired by an old friend to look into a murder suicide in Bend, Oregon, a resort in the high desert east of the Cascades. Was it a murder suicide as the local sheriff thinks? Or has this idyllic community been ripped apart?

Publisher's Summary

Private Investigator Tony Caruso lives out of his rolling office, an old Ford pickup truck, with his German-trained bomb-sniffing dog, Panzer, a Giant Schnauzer. Tony retired after 20 years in the Navy as an aviation ordnance man, but this training might not be enough when he is hired by an old friend to look into a murder suicide in Bend, Oregon, a resort in the high desert east of the Cascades. Was it a murder suicide as the local sheriff thinks? Or has this idyllic community been ripped apart by not only murder but scandalous sexual deviance, lust, jealousy, and the quest for the almighty dollar? Follow Tony as he wades through a cast of characters as diverse as the Oregon landscape to solve this mystery.

    "BAD READER BAD READER BAD READER!!!!"
    What disappointed you about Boom Town?

    Terrible reader. The actual narration was "ok" but when character voices were done, the worse I've ever heard. It spoils the story and I'll never buy another Audible book using Terry Ross.

    Also, While the story line was interesting, there were too many Unfunny but trying to be cute sexual comments--sounded childish and took away from the ability to take the book seriously.


    What could Trevor Scott have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Besides get a better reader, there were too many Unfunny but trying to be cute sexual comments--sounded childish and took away from the ability to take the book seriously.


    What didn’t you like about Terry Rose’s performance?

    It was terrible!! Bad character voices--I'll never get another where Terry Rose is the Narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger in that I paid for the book and felt compelled to finish it, but then I was driving Interstate 5 and little alternatives.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually trash a book, but reading a BAD job.
