Publisher's Summary

Marshall Karp is an acclaimed playwright known for his witty sense of humor and crackling dialogue. The Rabbit Factory, his debut novel, stars the irreverent LAPD detective duo of Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs.

Dean Lamaar is the architect of an entertainment empire and the creator of iconic characters like Rambunctious Rabbit and McGreedy the Moose. When his company falls on hard times, the only hope to get it back in the black is Familyland, an amusement park in Las Vegas. Mere days before the grand opening, an actor playing Rambunctious Rabbit is found dead on the park grounds, and everyone senses foul play. And after more characters wind up murdered, it becomes obvious that someone has it in for Lamaar. Lomax and Biggs are put on the case, and together they root out a murderer.

This rollicking tale is at once a multi-layered whodunit and a skewering of Tinseltown.

    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.

    "Marshall Karp Writes… Good :-)"

    Don't know why there are two readers for "The Rabbit Factory". They're both good but they seem to randomly hand off the story to one another and it kind of jerked me out of the mood. And that's a tiny bit a shame, since Marshall Karp put together an, um, hare raising tale of Disney-Land-Like-fun and mystery. Okay, the ending hops over the top, but this is fiction and rambunctious stuff. I'll get more Karp, and I'm happy to recommend 'The Rabbit Factory' as fine, if probably forgettable escape.

    "Great characters, great laughs"

    An excellent book for a lengthy car ride or a whole lot of short ones. Terrific characters - the two leads are believable guys you really root for. The obvious slings and arrows pointed at Disney are unmistakable, but are actually kind of fun. The narrator did a phenomenal job of giving life to a host of characters. I hope to see and read more from this author in the future - I'll definitely be looking for his next effort.

    "Tons of Fun"

    A wonderfully crafted story that provides a steady stream of action, great plot development and intrigue along with some funny one liners. The characters are likable and can make you laugh as well as want to cry. The plot is great and keeps you guessing until the big reveal and the books is well written. Overall I can’t think of a book that I enjoyed as much in a long time. ‘The Rabbit Factory” was non-stop fun from start to finish.

    The narrators do a great job bringing the characters to life and the use of two really helps separate out the points of view!

    "Poor performance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Rabbit Factory to be better than the print version?

    Loved the story and looking forward to the next book in the series. The only issue I have with the book is the performer. You can hear him swallow! You hear every bit of mucous rolling around in his mouth. I hope the next book is better.


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Jenner and Tom Stechschulte ’s performances?

    No!

    "Excellent Yarn"

    Buddy Cop story tinged with one cop coping with his lost love of his life whilst dealing with a serial killer - If you like your buddy cop stories with a bit more depth this will not dissapoint.
