Publisher's Summary

Hollywood's newest wunderkind is Peter Alan Nelson, the brilliant, erratic director known as the King of Adventure. His films make billions, but his manners make enemies. What the boy king wants, he gets, and what Nelson wants is for Elvis Cole to comb the country for the airhead wife and infant child the film-school flunkout dumped en route to becoming the third biggest filmmaker in America.

It's the kind of case Cole can handle in his sleep - until it turns out to be a nightmare. For when Cole finds Nelson's wife in a small Conneticut town, she's nothing like what he expects. The lady has some unwanted - and very nasty - mob connections, which means Elvis could be opening the East Coast branch of his P.I. office...at the bottom of the Hudson River.

Investigate another case with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

    "Lullaby Town by Robert Crais"

    Much less than I expected. The reader almost put me to sleep and now I will not listen to Voodoo River or whatever the title is. Dick Hill and a few other readers have spoiled me I guess. Yawn......

    "unteresting characters"

    I had read a couple of books in this series and thought that I would stick with it, but this one is dull and tedious with characters that you can't care about. I will have to look elsewhere. I highly recommend the Harlan Coben series with Myron Bolitar for a smart, witty detective.

    Story
    "It's hard to get past a narrator"
    What did you like best about Lullaby Town? What did you like least?

    I'm not sure that I can really comment on the book. I can't get past the reader. Bought Lullaby Town so that I could listen to all of the series but the narrator sounds so much like Dick Hill. I just finished returning all the books I have bought narrated by him as his narration grates on me. Don't know if I will get through this one. I have to read it instead.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not sounding like Dick Hill.


    Do you think Lullaby Town needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There is a follow up book read by the same man. I have already bought it but may have to return. I usually listen to a book straight through. I am having trouble listening for more than 30 minutes.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and have. It's Pike and Cole enough said.

    Voo Doo River, child seeks parent instead of parent seeking child.

    Drama Humor Suspense, he makes my mouth twitch.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and almost did, while driving from Virginia to Florida

    "I didn't like narraters voice"

    Robert Crais is an amazing writer I love his books. The only thing I had a problem with is the narrators voice. I was too used to Elvis sounding youthful and sarcastic in the first 2 books. This narrator sounded like he didn't understand the sarcasm as he read it, so he didn't say it as you would in everyday life. I now know there are multiple narrators to choose from my fault kinda rushed into this new website with out reading everything. Thank you

    Story
    "Raunchy language that was not needed!"
    Would you try another book from Robert Crais and/or Mel Foster?

    Probably, because I know Robert Crais is known for good writing. This one did not hold us. We travel and use books to fill the long miles. Each time we stopped we had to ask ourselves, what the book was a bout before we began again. And the language was just too much. You can get your point across with out all of that.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    John Grisham's The Litigators


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    We like good mysteries, police procedure books and suspense. If Crais is really as good as others say he is I hope this was a poor choice for us.
