A good tale
Reminiscent of Raymond Chandler
Easy to listen too, but with a complex plot
Richard Ferrone does a great job with a nicely paced and balanced performance, and makes you like the main character
Its a crime thriller, not really meant to be moving, but I wanted to hear the end.
This is the first John D MacDonald book I have listened to and I will look out his others.
