Publisher's Summary

Marshall Karp is an acclaimed playwright known for his witty sense of humor and crackling dialogue. His debut novel The Rabbit Factory 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.

    "Bizarre but engaging mystery.1st-rate performance."

    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.

    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

    "Great Story, Great Storytelling!"
    What did you love best about The Rabbit Factory?

    the sarcastic humor & the way Karp tells the story. He describes things without OVERdescribing things, if you know what I mean


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

    Didn't know until the end whodunit


    Any additional comments?

    100% recommend reading all of the Lomax & Biggs series

    "Really enjoyable, glad I found Marshall Karp's boo"

    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!

    "No normal bunny trail!"
    Would you listen to The Rabbit Factory again? Why?

    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!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rabbit Factory?

    When Mike Lomax finally gave in to Diana's charms


    Which scene was your favorite?

    oh, the explosion


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

    BOTH!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next in this series

    "Good plot, but didn't love the writing style"

    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.

    I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.

    "95 out of 100."

    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.
