Publisher's Summary

Sinclair Rutherford is a young Seattle cop with a taste for the finer things. Doing menial tasks and getting hassled by superiors he doesn't respect are definitely not "finer things". Good police work and bad luck lead him to crack a case that changes quickly from a career-making break into a high-profile humiliation when footage of his pursuit of the suspect - wildly inappropriate murder weapon in hand - becomes an Internet sensation.
But the very publicity that has made Rutherford a laughing stock in the department lands him what could be the job opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to work with a team of eccentric experts, at the direction of a demanding but distracted billionaire. Together, they must solve the murder of a psychologist who specialized in the treatment of patients who give people "the creeps".
There is no shortage of suspects.

If you liked Magic 2.0, get this book

I devoured the Magic 2.0 books. I found them clever and at times laugh out loud funny. So I decided to pick this one up. I was not disappointed. The wit of the prior series was present and the characters were fun and well performed by the reader. The story is by no means earth shattering, but clever enough to hold my attention and definitely entertaining.

Another fun book by Scott Meyer

Scott Meyer’s books are great true to form this book is whimsical with fun dynamics between character. Solid writing without getting too wordy. I jVe enjoyed many of his books most of which have been narrated by Luke Daniels who does a great job portraying the kinds of characters that tend to be in Scotts books

An entertaining, humorous police procedural

The Authorities is an entertaining, lighthearted police procedural, full of eccentric characters and gentle humour. In many ways, it is similar to the author's Magic 2.0 books - a simple, amusing story featuring endearingly socially inept characters. Luke Daniels' narration is excellent. His character voices really add to the humour.

Great performance. The characters were great.

I think the story could have used the wonderful characters a bit more. I enjoyed the story.
