Detective Jacob Lev wakes one morning, dazed and confused: He seems to have picked up a beautiful woman in a bar the night before, but he can’t remember anything about the encounter, and before he knows it, she has gone. But this mystery pales in comparison to the one he’s about to be called on to solve. Newly reassigned to a Special Projects squad he didn’t even know existed, he’s sent to a murder scene far up in the hills of Hollywood Division. There is no body, only an unidentified head lying on the floor of a house.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Golem of Hollywood to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Golem of Hollywood?

I enjoyed the alternate storyline of Cain and Abel.

Have you listened to any of John Rubinstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes he is a wonderful performer.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes but I don't want to spoil it for others!

Any additional comments?

Jonathan Kellerman is one of my favorite authors and John Rubinstein a favorite narrator. I couldn't help but imagine Dr. Alex Delaware as the main character because of the narrator. He did a fabulous job otherwise.

The story was very interesting to me. I love the alternate story lines and slightly supernatural feel. The ending didn't quite fulfill me and I was left with some unanswered questions and confused thoughts. All in all it was a great listen and I definitely recommend.
