Nothing mysterious about Moon Over Malibu
I might, but if it's anything like Moon Over Malibu then I will pass.
Nothing that Gary did wrong, but I am not a fan of breathy woman voice. I think it would have worked better if he left off the breathy voice.
I really wanted to like it but it never grabbed my attention and as the story progress I couldn't wait for it to end.

I never like to give bad reviews. I usually would just say not my cup of tea and leave it as that. But as stated I received the audiobook for a unbiased review and because of this here is my review.
A mystery should be that.. a mystery. But Moon Over Malibu (MOM) never really even get a hook in. All the character feels like extras in a made for television movie. There was no bite to them, I didn't care what happened to them. And that is how I consider if a book is good or not. To me a detective mystery should be something like Don Winslow A Cool Breeze on the Underground. You get hooked from the very beginning and you want to know who the protagonist is and where he came from. With MOM I was just wishing the story would end and I dreaded the whole time thinking now I have to leave a not so good review.
