Publisher's Summary

Nate knelt beside the dead girl. This wasn't his first homicide, it wasn't even the first dead prostitute he'd investigated. It wasn't the first strangling death he'd been assigned to. But this one bothered him.

Maybe it was her youth; she appeared to be in her early twenties. Maybe it was her looks, as death had yet to rob her of her beauty. Maybe she reminded him of his own daughter, Lizzie, who was only a few years younger. Maybe it was something else entirely.

The big detective looked over the body, careful not to touch or disturb her. He had one of the best crime scene technicians, Winston Rawls, and he did not want to make his job harder.

    "Great!"

    I normally don't get into murder mysteries and cop stories, but this one drew me in. Loved it!

    "When will the movie premiere?"

    Kwen Griffith has mastered the art of setting the scene, character introduction, and dialog. A fast moving mystery with twists and turns!

    "Great story"

    The story was written exceptionally well. So many times I went back and forth from loving and hating Nate. This only made me want to listen to it more. The narration was done perfectly and I think no one else could have done as well of a job.

    Story
    "Great book, great narrator!"
    Would you listen to The Tenth Nail again? Why?

    Yes, the story was compelling and Paul J. McSorley did a wonderful job bringing the listener into the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nat. I like flawed heroes. Nat is a good man but flawed, like all of us. The author does a great job showing these traits in this novel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to mention.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book during a long road trip and it helped pass the time as I drove.

    "Fast Paced Murder Mystery"
    What did you love best about The Tenth Nail?

    I really enjoyed 'The Tenth Nail'. Great character development and the story line was excellent. You really get to know the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good twists and turns and everything ties in nicely.


    What does Paul J. McSorley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Paul J. Mcsorley does an excellent job with 'The Tenth Nail'. Lots of different characters in the book and Paul did a great job with them all.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to this book on my way to and from work... and I would sit in my car to finish a chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book and great narration.

    Story
    ""You eat pine cones, don't cha?""

    I had fun listening to this. The crimes and the detection move along at a good clip with time for character and local color development. There is no dwelling on mayhem. This book comes before the one I started with but they two stand alone. The problem with starting a series with older detectives, the author has to scramble to keep the old cops functioning. But I do like them tho Nate is no Harry Bosch.
