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
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!
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.
