So immersed is Martin in these escapes that he fails to notice the crimes going on all around him. When first one, then another, of his co-workers is brutally murdered, Martin is shocked to become the fetching female investigator's prime suspect. Center stage at last, Martin basks not in the glow of the spotlight, but in the harsh glare of interrogation.

"Slaughter sketches larger-than-life characters using only a few ordinary, hilarious, and revealing details, and narrator Wayne Knight...gives each an energetic, gloomy, or appropriately over-the-top personality." (AudioFile)
This would have been terrific as a novel; it is really good as a novella. Wayne Knight was great too.I have to say I pictured him as Martin, AND I could even see him playing all the lead parts--making for quite a fun video inside my head as the story unfolded.
I gave it less than five stars due to the conclusion. It was not expected but I was completely unsatisfied--my personal opinion. Others might think it was appropriate. Not terribly believable, but then again, not many options to wrap up the story at this length. Just fun to listen to and leaves you wanting more. Lovably quirky.
