With the help of an ex-football star, Moe stumbles around the fringes of the New York art scene, trying to get a handle on where the art stops and the commerce begins. Much to Moes surprise and disgust, he discovers that Sashi is, on the one hand, revered as a cash cow and, on the other, reviled as a fraud and a joke. Suspects abound beyond the usual predators and pedophiles, for it is those closest to Sashi in life who have the most to gain from her death. Cruel ironies lurk around every corner, beneath every painting, and behind every door. Almost nothing is what it seems.
Beware the innocent monster, for it need not hide itself and it lives closely among us: sometimes as close as the mirror.
Reed Farrel Coleman's mysteries starring Moe Prager have won or been nominated for many of the crime fiction world's biggest awards, including the Edgar, the Shamus, the Barry, and the Anthony. The Moe Prager mysteries were named as part of Maureen Corrigan's Best Books of 2009.

Nice ending but was it worth the trip
Where does Innocent Monster rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Squarely in the middle
Which character – as performed by Andy Caploe – was your favorite?
Moe himself is a lovable winner--just the other side of his prime and wise in a way that follows 'wiseguy'.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Generally, the increasing closeness between a man and the son of a lost friend.
Any additional comments?
Much of the plot seemed contrived and targeted to skewed to puncture the fake artsy world. Almost all of those characters fell flat. Caploe is stronger when he creates real people and leaves satiric cartooning to others.

Why would a book about a Jewish cop be filled with defilement of the name of Jesus Christ? So much so that it was intolerable to read. I want my money back and will never again purchase a Reed Farrel Coleman work.
