Great narration, good story!
Homicide Special was a good listen. The information was great and certainly kept my interest. There was a lot of switching gears back and forth from case to case throughout the story, which made it difficult to follow at times (especially while multitasking when listening). The descriptions throughout the book were vivid. A good listen for true crime fanatics!

Other reviews are too generous. This book is meh.
Stories about detectives trying to catch the bad guy are inherently fascinating. The stories in this book are no exception.
However, the writer of this book added little. The writing style was jumbled. I had a hard time following the author's description of events.
The author kept randomly switching between crime A, crime B, crime C, for no apparent reason, even though the crimes were unrelated to each other.
Unless you have a specific interest in the recent history of the LAPD in particular, I recommend passing on this book. And even if you do have some special interest, don't expect any deep or novel insights. This book is just a plain matter-of-fact description of some recent investigations, and not very well organized.
Jonathan Davis did a fine job with this material, as always.
