Publisher's Summary

Now a television series starring Michelle Dockery, coming to TNT this fall.

Fresh out of prison and fighting to keep afloat, Letty Dobesh returns to her old tricks burglarizing suites at a luxury hotel. While on the job, she overhears a man hiring a hit man to kill his wife. Letty may not be winning any morality awards, but even she has limits. Unable to go to the police, Letty sets out to derail the job, putting herself on a collision course with the killer that entangles the two of them in a dangerous, seductive relationship.

Good Behavior comprises three interlinked novellas (The Pain of Others, Sunset Key, and Grab), which together form a novel-length portrait of Blake Crouch's all-time favorite character creation, Letty Dobesh. This edition is the complete Letty Dobesh collection.

    "Big Disappointment."
    What was most disappointing about Blake Crouch’s story?

    I didn't hate the story, but I didn't like it. The short stories themselves were just OK, and the notes from Blake Crouch in between were boring. I didn't get this book to listen to him plug his TV show, so it was a big upset to realize that the already rather short 5 hour book was actually even shorter if I didn't listen to that.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not watched the show, nor have did I listen to Blake Crouch talked after his first segment. The short stories themselves were rather far fetched, even for Blake Crouch.

    "Not a bad story"

    The story was pretty good but the author kills it by making his own notes after every segment. I get it was really three stories but honestly, does he need a p remind everyone that they made a tv show out of the book. He mentions its numerous times through the audio. If you have to remind every body about it maybe the shows not that good. I would have gotten through the whole audio book except he has to tell why he wrote the whole thing in segments. Let the story tell it self.

    Story
    "WOW!! Three must read novellas!"

    The TNT TV series Good Behavior is based on the three novellas in this book. Any one of the three is worth the price of the book. The protagonist is Letty Dobesh who is a 36 year old alcohol and drug addicted grifter/flim-flam artist just out of prison. Letty has a lot of problems one of which is having lost custody of her young son. She is successfully fighting her alcohol and drug addictions, but not her addiction to grifting. She has a big heart and all listeners are bound to love her.

    In Letty author Blake Crouch has created a unique, wonderful and unforgettable character who is very different from his characters in other books including the Wayward Pines trilogy. Julia Whelan's narration is stellar. Author Blake Crouch comments on each novella when it is concluded.

    It would be impossible to recommend this book too strongly. It is simply fabulous!

    "Good, Apart From The Series Plugs"

    Blake Crouch is consistently one of my favorite authors, and I enjoyed these stories. However, the flow was disrupted by the long ramblings about how the character, stories and series came to be. One would have been fine. I might not have skipped over it. He just carried it too far.

    People say I resemble my dog (and vice-versa). He can hear sounds I can't hear, but I'm the one who listens to audiobooks.

    "From Page to Screen"

    The original source material for TNT's new show Good Behavior, a short story and two novellas by Blake Crouch about Letty Dobesh, a high-strung grifter junkie, as she executes hotel room, art, and casino heists.

    If you're a fan of the show, there are significant differences. The entire second story, for example, as well as the way the other two stories end. But until the end, the initial story is virtually the first episode of the show verbatim. The opening scene of the third story is the opening scene of the first episode, and much of the remainder of that story is in the fifth episode, with a different setting and a radically different ending.

    But there is very little about Letty's family and no Javier (except as a name for a different and very minor character). What makes the whole thing that much more enjoyable is that Crouch is on hand to discuss the show and the three stories, how he and show's creator and writer incorporated what he already had and how and why they changed things.

    That and the dramatic twist endings to all three stories, as well as narration that comes close to Michelle Dockery's characterization, make this an excellent choice for fans of the show. Those who haven't seen the show are likely to check it out after listening to this audiobook.

    "Wow!"

    As one other reviewer mentioned, I'm not a fan of short stories, but these are fantastic with common threads throughout. Both narrators were perfect and wow the stories were intriguing even to this somewhat jaded fiction reader. I am almost hesitant to start the other Blake Crouch novel that I impulsively purchased ... how it can measure up to this?

    "Great stories! I only wish they could be longer :("

    I was enthralled the whole time. The plots were all so different and Leddy was such a great dynamic character! The narrator was ok, but she was really bad at immitating men.

    "A Little Unbelievable"

    Three stories for the price of one......each story builds on the first ......Letty, the main character seems to have nine lives.....she engages in remarkable, MacGyver like behavior that keeps her alive and going on to her next screwy encounter.....
    A light/comedy.....

    "Another really good Blake Crouch ride"

    I lreally enjoyed this, I didn't find the writers explanations off putting at all, they were really interesting and easily skipped, only introductions to each story. Gripped by the character and plots. A good read.
