Publisher's Summary

Opening Day is a 2012 B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree.

Young girls are coming through a pastoral upstate New York fishing village - but, they aren't all coming out alive! 

Following a close brush with death as an NYPD homicide detective, Matt Davis has taken early retirement, and accepted a position as Chief of Police in a small, rural upstate New York village. While out fishing on his favorite stream, he stumbles across the remains of a body, barely recognizable as human, killed approximately six months earlier. With no physical evidence, no identification, and no clues, it's up to Matt to not only find the murderer, but to discover the identity of the victim. The big question, however, is: Are there others? 

Opening Day is the second in the Matt Davis Mystery Series and picks up where As the Twig is Bent left off.

Opening Day: Matt Davis continues to roll.

What made the experience of listening to Opening Day the most enjoyable?

The opening sequence sets the tone! Retired NYPD Matt Davis hoping to settle in to a nice, second law enforcement career as Chief of the Roscoe, NY police department, stumbles upon a gruesome crime scene at his favorite fishing spot.

The plot develops quickly, once again through the use of flashback, into a "what the heck is going on here" story with several good suspects who may be involved in a crime(s) that are a parents worst nightmare.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoy both Matt and Val Davis equally. There was only a passing mention of some characters in The Twig is Bent, Davis's co-workers with the NYPD.

Which character – as performed by Scott R. Pollak – was your favorite?

I enjoyed Mr. Pollak's performance of all of the characters in Opening Day.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction...just had to keep reading (listening) until the story all comes together.

Any additional comments?

Next.......!!!!!!!!
