Really bad

Three hours into this book and you still don't know what it's about. Don't waste a credit on this one. Perhaps it's this writers style, but it sure wasn't for me.

Hard to put down

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Wambaugh's characters are a bit over the top and can startle you initially. This narrator held my attention throughout. He made you feel part of the story. He made me laugh out loud at times and sad at others. A good story and a great team.
