Very Bad Men: David Loogan, Book 2 | [Harry Dolan]

Very Bad Men: David Loogan, Book 2

David Loogan is living in Ann Arbor with Detective Elizabeth Waishkey and her daughter, Sarah. He's settled into a quiet routine as editor of the mystery magazine Gray Streets - until one day he finds a manuscript outside his door. It begins: "I killed Henry Kormoran." Anthony Lark has a list of names: Terry Dawtrey, Sutton Bell, Henry Kormoran. To his eyes, the names glow red on the page. They move. They breathe. The people on the list have little in common, except that 17 years ago they were involved in a notorious robbery.

    "Overall good listen!"
    Would you try another book from Harry Dolan and/or Erik Davies?

    I read Harry Dolans first book Bad Things Happen this summer just before Very Bad Men. I thought the first book was a lot better than this one, so I was a little dissapointed. But overall it is a good listen, and worth the time. The book keeps you interested and takes new turns all the time, but at times it was a little to complicated and I started confusing names and fell out of the plot somehow. Anyway, I reccommend it for crime lovers and especially if you have a relationship to the city of Ann Arbor.

    Story
    "Good sequel to Bad Things Happen"

    I thought that Bad Things Happen was a better book, but the twists and turns in this novel were very good. Narrator was definitely not my favorite and could have been better; I felt the narrator made the story feel like it was dragging on at times, but you have to get past that because the plot was good for a Book 2.

    Story
    "Okay, but not as good as Bad Things Happen"

    This started out well enough and I enjoyed spending some more time with the David Loogan character, but it got a little convoluted toward the end...in fact, I suspected they would when there were several chapters left and the story had already reached the point where it should have logically concluded. Overall, this was still an enjoyable book, but the author tried to connect too many dots as a conclusion to the detriment of the story. I still like the characters very much and will purchase the next installment, but if it is time to end the story...it should end. Occam's razor... : ) Also, I think they can find a better narrator for these, as well. He has a great reading voice, but some of his characters sound a bit like a Carlos Mencia monologue.
