I'd previously read a couple of these 87th Precinct books that I thought were clever and entertaining (Fat Ollie's Book and Fiddlers). This one, though, is really awful. It seemed like nobody could think of a plan to deal with solving a kidnapping except by shaming a wealthy man into paying the ransom for another man's child. The police didn't seem to be doing anything other than abetting the kidnappers in collecting the ransom; not a stitch of actual police work or detection. The only suspense was whether the idiot police could manage to follow the kidnappers' instructions well enough to get the kid back. Fortunately the civilians took care of that matter themselves. Couple of cute twists in the end, but not worth wading through the muck to get there. I guess a lot of people liked the movie that was based on this, but I can only assume they had a bunch of really cute actors.

While I have enjoyed all of the series I have listened too thus far, this story and the narration were just annoying
