Nothing mysterious about Moon Over Malibu
Would you try another book from Peter Kelly and/or Gary Mason?
I might, but if it's anything like Moon Over Malibu then I will pass.
What aspect of Gary Mason’s performance would you have changed?
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.
Was Moon Over Malibu worth the listening time?
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.
Any additional comments?

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.

Enjoyable Period Detective Stories
An enjoyable, easy read. Good detective stories from Hollywood in the 30's. Likeable characters, the only flaw is an inadequate production with too much background noise.
