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.

    "Nice Elvis Cole story"

    Good story, that actually gets Elvis out of LA again. I am circling back and doing older Elvis Cole books and I had a hard time with the reader at the beginning, but after a short adjustment over the first few chapters, I got used to him and now doing other older Elvis books, Mel Foster has almost become the standard.

    Story
    "A great Elvis and Joe Pike read"
    If you could sum up Lullaby Town in three words, what would they be?

    Mob to Hollywood


    What other book might you compare Lullaby Town to and why?

    David Baldacci or Connelly series are a lot like this series with a good mystery and likable characters


    Which character – as performed by Mel Foster – was your favorite?

    I like Elvis, his internal dialog/thoughts are pretty funny


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At times I wanted to strangle Peter Alan Nelson for being so annoying


    Any additional comments?

    Great read in the Elvis/Joe series

    Story
    "Loved this book!"
    Where does Lullaby Town rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really loved this book, and loved the narrator. First rate.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lullaby Town?

    I just liked the attitudes of the two main characters, Elvis & Cole. The narration made their attitudes all the better, and used inflections and nuances that I wouldn't have seen if I was just reading the book. The story line was good!


    What does Mel Foster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Again, the narration made their attitudes all the better, and used inflections and nuances that I wouldn't have seen if I was just reading the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Everybody lies.


    Any additional comments?

    I had never heard of this author before. I am on the second book, and even though it is narrated by a different person (whose voice sounds too young, compared to Mel's voice) - I still like the inflections, etc., that he gives the characters. His accents are good also.

    "Lullaby Town"

    Enjoyed the flip style of Elvis Cole makes the story more light hearted than the routine murder mystery stories. The self centered hubris attitude of the director was a great contrast to Toby his son. Looking forward to more books by Crais.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    Story
    "Satisfying light mystery"
    What made the experience of listening to Lullaby Town the most enjoyable?

    Crais tells a good story that I consider mystery light. It is always engaging but does not require a lot of thinking. Some more intrigue might help. Some of it seems implausible, but the humor makes it worthwhile.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Crais uses a lot of humor and I like the funny side of Elvis Cole.


    What does Mel Foster bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Mel Foster brings lightness and air and a comic's touch to the reading.

    Story
    "More Joe Pike....."
    What made the experience of listening to Lullaby Town the most enjoyable?

    While I love Elvis Cole, Joe Pike enthralls me! Joe played a role in this story but in my opinion not a big enough one. The story was a little hard to believe but I'll suspend belief for Elvis and Joe any day. Sympathetic idiot rich man wants to find his long neglected son and ex wife who have moved on and made a nice quiet life for themselves if you don't count the ties to organized crime. TheN Crais sends in the clowns in the guise of a bunch of stereotypical mob jerks and the plot thickens.I won't spoil the story with details, it's always amusing to get Elvis and Joe in a fight because of course they are invincible! don't expect reality, expect fun


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not exactly on the edge of my seat, but amused and entertained throughout!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    did not find the delivery as good as some I've heard, it was adequate, that's all.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no tears were shed in the 'reading' of this book, but I laughed quietly through a great deal of it. I love Elvis Cole and Robert Crais so I knew what I was getting and I was not disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    MORE JOE PIKE!

    "Just not the right voice!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Great Story as are all Crais books. But Pat Lawlor's Pesche-esk narration is the absolute best match for Cole's sarcastic wit.

    "Lullaby Town"

    This book is an easy and ejoyable read but the narrator is the wrong voice for Elvis Cole. James Daniels in the voice of Elvis Cole.

    I have been reading this series from the beginning and have ejoyed seeing the author and the characters in his books grow.
