Silence almost golden

Thomas Perry, the creator of the Jane Whitfield series pulls a switch, and with another stolid character...Grizzled Ex Cop with gimmicky crosses to bear...has to find a someone he helped disappear. Mayhem ensues. Body count rises, reader is taken on a road trip along California's Highway 101. Nice scenery.

Now the problem: if you are Tantor Media, and you are having an actor narrate a book which takes place in California, with important sequences taking place in Los Angeles, would it be too much to ask the actor to at least learn how to pronounce place names which have made it into the general lexicon. Streets like La Cienega and Sepulveda are mentioned on TV all the time. In a pinch, I understand Los Angeles has actors who do good narrations and know how to pronounce local street names.

And yeah...Simi Valley is not pronounced SEMI.

Problems like this occur thruout the reading, and detract authenticity of the mileu Perry spent a lot of time creating. Because...yeah...he is an LA writer.

Longer is better

The action in this novel, and there is plenty, could fill a third of the space Perry takes to tell a layered, rich tale. You think you know most everything, but more gets revealed, and the characters are people you want to know more about. When one of the characters is crazy, the author reveals it by showing us her interior dialog in a convincing and scary way. Surprise revelations right up to the last page, the last sentence. Clearly written and a pleasure to read.Perry hasn't lost a step.
