I listened to this, the second in the Lomax & Biggs series. It's a tragic story, but is not a normal mystery since we find out early on who is carrying out the killing and why. The book is better than the first, The Rabbit Factory, in that it is no longer than it needs to be; it is funnier and has more believable characters. The narrator, Tom Stechschulte, is terrific, making it much more fun to listen to than to read.

***SPOILERS*** Another knock out! Marshall Karp did a great job in developing the characters. While the setting is still in the Hollywood industry the topic is something any parent sympathize with, the senseless killing of their child. Society sympathizes with families who find they cannot conceive but find the joy of parenthood through adopting a child. When you add that Texas justice in the picture you can image what happens. Emotional the reader has a more intense connection with the antagonist. You know what they did was wrong. The circumstances of this family make it more potent.
Terry is still funny and he has added jokes about the Hollywood industry. Lomax’s personal relationship has progressed and he is not lamenting over the death of his wife.
This is much better than the first book.
.A Terry joke: Marilyn, his wife asks, what would you do honey? Terry replies, what would I do about what? What would you do if god forbids, someone ever murder one of the girls? No question, Terry says. I’d buy and AK 47 and get revenge. What if they murdered me, Marilyn said? No question on that one either, he said, internet dating.
