A former TV writer, Marshall Karp is the author of three previous Lomax and Biggs mysteries, including the uproarious series debut, The Rabbit Factory. In Cut, Paste, Kill, Lomax and Biggs investigate a disturbing series of murders—with the only clues being scrapbooks left at the scene of each crime.

“Kinky Friedman and Carl Hiaasen fans should latch onto this series.” (Publishers Weekly)
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
This mystery's fun. The comedy cop team of Lomax & Biggs tramp through what otherwise would be a ho-hum plot. But Marshall Karp is a smart, feisty writer. I'll buy the next in this series,especially if Tom Stechschulte brings his imagination to creating the cast.
What a riot! Quirky characters all over the place with great dialog and a plot that is just too funny to believe!
I preferred the earlier book in this series, The Rabbit Factory. The ending of this one just flopped a bit in my opinion
This is the 4th book in the Lomax and Biggs series. The same review applies to all in the series. It has a creative plot with plenty of twists and turns. Add to that some witty dialogue and you have a fun ride.
Tom Stechschulte is among my favorite narrators. I think his voice is best suited to books based in the South but it works well here.
I give it a top rating within its genre: mystery with a sense of humor.
Love to listen to books. Do tons of driving and they keep me sane.
Enjoyed the story and who can ever forget Big Jim. He should have been in it more, with Terry and his dream of directing a trucker story. Narration was dead on and very enjoyable.
This is a relatively short book that was a good listen while I was working on some art projects. It is not complex, deep or thought provoking. It is well written with broad, entertaining characters. The subplots are predictable but the main story-line is a bit far-fetched. Good entertainment value for my time.
I am not as enamored with Tom Stechschulte as some other reviewers. I felt several of the minor characters were so broadly done as to be edging on offensive - in particular Big Jim's live-in girlfriend Angel.
I was born and raised in Southern California. The places and the attitudes towards the entertainment business ring true. This is my second listen in the series - not intentional, I did not realize it until I started listening to this one (The Rabbit Factory was the first). I don't think I would hunt down another but I won't be upset if I pick one up as a daily deal)
I cannot imagine how anyone can listen to that narrator for even a whole hour, let alone the entire book. I'd give it zero stars if that were possible.
Amazement: How did this get published?
Loved the characters & humor. Excellent narration by Tom Stechschulte. Will look for other books by this author - hopefully, there will be another in a series.
