Hard Boiled, Right Down the Line

Classic hard-boiled detective fiction. MacDonald is a master at it, so you're in good hands. This one has all the elements: murder, drinking, dope, swell dames, and patsies. The performance was a little "one-note" but not so much that it took away from the writing.

Another mystery masterpiece!

MacDonald returns us to the world of world-weary detective Lew Archer, who stumbles into a murder case in which no one is innocent. The twists and turns follow the length of the case until its final, gut-wrenching climax. Find a Victim should be found by readers and listeners!

Great story and narration

I swear Tom Parker sounds like Grover Gardner! Nice deep voice, and so easy to follow the character changes. Great fun!

Missing

Archer attempts to find a missing woman and finds multiple murder victims instead. Archer, as always, gets beaten up, kissed by beautiful women, and solves the case.

Enjoyable Listening

I totally enjoyed listening to this classic Ross Macdonald story, it had great characters that flowed into the story nicely. The Lew Archer series is a good one. Also great narration by Tom Parker, another one of my Audible Plus selections.

Over eager editing.

Editing dept spliced too soon and cut off words @ the end of the chapters. Weird.

chapter breaks

good story and well read. the chapter breaks were very abrupt and seemed to cut off some of the story so I am not sure if I missed anything. the previous titles in this series were not cut off like this one.

Badly edited kindle and audio

The kindle book has numerous errors throughout. Also the audible clips the last words at the end of every chapter. It was a good read but not my favorite by far

As good as it gets

Macdonald is a master of the noir mystery, and the reader is fantastic! Don't miss it!
