This first in a series features 34-year-old reporter Coleridge Taylor. As indicated in the publisher's blurb, Taylor was demoted from the police beat for "inventing sources" and forced to write obituaries. It seems as if the whole world is against him, his editors, the police, everyone except his colleague and protégé Laura Wheeler. Many years younger than Taylor, I could understand her admiration for his dedication to crime news and his investigative intensity, but it was less clear what was the sexual attraction she found in him. But each to his/her own. Once he gets his teeth into a lead, he will pursue it with a passion. It's a short book, without a lot of filler, and moves along steadily, building excitement. The story progresses much like a police procedural.
This was the first time I listened to a book narrated by Donald Corren, but he was very good. I look forward to listening to the second in this series.
