I was aware of the Butcher's Boy for many years before allowing myself to be pulled in by the fact that this was an Edgar Award winning novel by a first time published author (pretty sure my facts are correct--or close enough to count as correct). Anyway, I was hooked after page one and by the end was pretty darn sure I'd read the last word on the Butcher's Boy. I mean, who can keep a series going about a non-feeling, clinical-like, loner hit-man? Well, evidently, Thomas Perry can and did. When Sleeping Dogs came out I was in literary-thriller heaven and counted myself lucky that Perry managed a second book on the B Boy. However, last week, I sumbled upon The Informant while browsing. I couldn't hit the select button fast enough. I've been listending to it every spare chance I get and for a third time I am not dissapointed. Neither Perry, nor the Butcher's Boy series has lost a step. If you're familiar with the series, you know what to expect. If you're not, but you like mystery-thrillers, start with the Butcher's Boy first, Sleeping Dogs next and then The Informant. I give this series my highest recommendation. Oh--and I rarely comment on the readers/actors, but Michael Kramer is perfect for this series and this character. You go boy!

What made the experience of listening to The Informant the most enjoyable?
The flow of the story was fast paced, but not too much so. There was duel suspense of the Butcher's Boy and the career justice officer.
What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the characters.
Which character ??? as performed by Michael Kramer ??? was your favorite?
I liked both hero and heroine. They were smart, conflicted and professional.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I just could'nt stop listening. I finished it in 2 days at the detriment of my sleep and work!
