I love to read this type of Detective story, the mystery is left in front of the reader and the drama is pulled in just enough so it's not annoying. ..Show More »Listening to this I must say Marc Vietor does my favorite cynical detective without sounding whiny and his narration of women doesn't make you visualize a man in drag. He's a top narrator and a mystery needs his voice. The story is simple but classic.
First let me say that Marc Vietor, the narrator, is the Bourbon voice in this detective story that just rocks this book.
There's enough clu..Show More »es to figure out the crime here, but it is meat and potatoes crime. There are no freakishly sick criminals who devise gross ways to kill people or over the top bad guys who haunt your sleep. These are the sort of crimials who kill for sex and money and this over the hill gumshoe doggedly hunts them down. He's a lousy streetfighter and has a shelter dog who is brilliant at catching a frizbee. I like this detective and will continue through the entire series. I'm hooked.
