Perhaps it was just me, but something is missing.

Let me preface this by saying that I generally enjoy memoirs and police/crime books. However, this particular book just never pulled me into it. I found it to drag and be very mundane as there was little action and worse, for a memoir, even less emotion. I suppose if one is into the minutia of police cases, then this book offers a steady string of one case after another. The strange thing is that some of the cases (each one is announced ahead of time) had the potential to be very interesting (serial killers, international crimes, kidnappings, sex trafficking) and are even familiar to the public (i.e. the Versace murder), yet they devolved into ho-hum details of office meetings and investigative techniques. Again, if that is the type of book that interests you, then this may be just your cup of tea. About halfway through the listen I even jumped ahead a few chapters to see if the tone of the book changed, but it didn't.

The other thing about this book that just didn't seem to fit is there were sections throughout that it lapsed into, for lack of a better term, sort of a 'chick flick' genre. Getting ready for a major case and the author is pining over the "silver-haired hunk" she is being partnered with and how she ends up in a passionate kiss with him at the end of their first shift together, discussing the female versus tactical clothes she need to decide between, glasses or contacts, etc. Again, maybe I am just not part of the audience that this booked was geared for as I am sure there are many listeners that will find it a refreshing perspective.

I gave the narrator, Lee Ann Howlett, an extra star because I think she did a great job in trying to add some energy into a book that really sorely lacked in that area. She made the listen bearable, in my humble opinion.

I hesitate to say that this was a bad book, and it certainly seems to have been painstakingly recalled from Floy Turner's actual experiences, but I just found it to be rather mundane. Perhaps it's a case of real life just not being all that exciting when just the facts are being relayed, or maybe it just wasn't my type of listen.

Finally, I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review and I hope it proves helpful to those considering purchasing this book.

Terrific!!

Floy Turner and Sherri Clark write a good crime story in the genre of most crime stories. There is a very good looking hero, beautiful women, evil villains and goodies win in the end - oh sorry, I have given you the punch line! But don't the goodies always beat the baddies? Anyway, if you want to relax with a good book, the authors knows how to please. I would have liked a little more in depth variety, even though he does write well and his descriptions of people, places, the weather etc., are very good. The setting is a little different from the normal crime locale but for those who don't know that area of the world, it is very interesting. I wouldn't say it was the best crime novel I have ever read but it does fit the bill!
