Love a good mystery, but don't care much for pure thrillers.
This is the first in a series of 4 featuring Detectives Lomax & Biggs* of the LAPD. I found Lomax an engaging personality, witty, honest, and like most men, confused about his feelings. I enjoyed the repartee between the partners, but I'm not sure that it will remain fresh through another 3 books. On the other hand, the book depicts most women as sex objects, and the sexism wears a bit thin after a while. There are points of the plot that are a bit over the top, but I won't spoil it for you. If you like police procedurals with a comic touch, this is good reading for a long airplane ride or day at the beach. It's entertaining but not deep.
*The series is not so identified by audible.com; the order is
2. Bloodthirsty, 3. Flipping Out, 4. Cut, Paste, Kill.

What a great book. Great story, great characters, well written, good plot, narrated very well, etc. I really can't think of any criticism. It's not a standard "who dunnit", it's better. I think everyone will enjoy it.
Avid listener. Go through 5 to 6 books a month. Since I'm not a truck driver or someone who spends a lot of time in the car, that's a lot
the sarcastic humor & the way Karp tells the story. He describes things without OVERdescribing things, if you know what I mean
Didn't know until the end whodunit
100% recommend reading all of the Lomax & Biggs series
Oh, yes, I would. Mr Karp did not let any of his readers down in this Biggs & Lomax book. The plot moves quickly enough to keep everyone engaged. The twists & turns are more than enough to keep all guessing!
When Mike Lomax finally gave in to Diana's charms
oh, the explosion
Can't wait for the next in this series
The second in the Lomax/Biggs detective series by Karp. I really enjoy all of these and the performance is excellent. I listen to them while running on my long distance days - they make the miles pass so much easier!
The plot and the characters where well thought and strong enough to keep me interested to the end of the book, but it seems that every other paragraph contained a cheesy joke. After a while that became annoying as all of the characters expressed themselves in that cheap humor.
lose the fowl language. It took the funny right out of it
