Publisher's Summary

Hollywood's newest wunderkind is Peter Alan Nelson, the brilliant, erratic director known as the King of Adventure. His films make billions, but his manners make enemies. What the boy king wants, he gets, and what Nelson wants is for Elvis Cole to comb the country for the airhead wife and infant child the film-school flunkout dumped en route to becoming the third biggest filmmaker in America.

It's the kind of case Cole can handle in his sleep - until it turns out to be a nightmare. For when Cole finds Nelson's wife in a small Conneticut town, she's nothing like what he expects. The lady has some unwanted - and very nasty - mob connections, which means Elvis could be opening the East Coast branch of his P.I. office...at the bottom of the Hudson River.

Investigate another case with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

Lullaby Town

Sorry, just couldn't get into it...Several names to remember and took awhile to get into the story

Lullaby Town

This book is an easy and ejoyable read but the narrator is the wrong voice for Elvis Cole. James Daniels in the voice of Elvis Cole.

I have been reading this series from the beginning and have ejoyed seeing the author and the characters in his books grow.

Lullaby Town by Robert Crais

Much less than I expected. The reader almost put me to sleep and now I will not listen to Voodoo River or whatever the title is. Dick Hill and a few other readers have spoiled me I guess. Yawn......

unteresting characters

I had read a couple of books in this series and thought that I would stick with it, but this one is dull and tedious with characters that you can't care about. I will have to look elsewhere. I highly recommend the Harlan Coben series with Myron Bolitar for a smart, witty detective.

Yes and almost did, while driving from Virginia to Florida

Raunchy language that was not needed!

Would you try another book from Robert Crais and/or Mel Foster?

Probably, because I know Robert Crais is known for good writing. This one did not hold us. We travel and use books to fill the long miles. Each time we stopped we had to ask ourselves, what the book was a bout before we began again. And the language was just too much. You can get your point across with out all of that.

What do you think your next listen will be?

John Grisham's The Litigators

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

NO

Any additional comments?

We like good mysteries, police procedure books and suspense. If Crais is really as good as others say he is I hope this was a poor choice for us.
