Publisher's Summary

Fun City is run by corrupt officials and respectable gangsters wallowing in luxury mansions in the hills high above the harbor, the beach, and the neon jungle. When vice worker Tammy is found mutilated on top of a pool table, an effete pervert, and son to the 1970s pin-up beauty queen once known as The White Flamingo, is locked up. Can Detective Joe Dylan find The Killer before he becomes one of the hunted? The White Flamingo is a break-neck neo-noir crime thriller from beak to tail feather.

There's definitely something to be said...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Certainly was. Despite the story not being my cup of tea and very difficult to follow with its jumpy storytelling at times, there was nothing particularly undesirable with this book. I knew what I was getting into when I decided to listen to this. Anyway, should definitely be noted that Nicholas has a flair for creating a dark mood from start to finish. He's the reason I made my way through to the end.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Lukewarm. I unfortunately couldn't get attached to any of the characters, but the ending itself was creative and left me smirking.

Which character – as performed by Nicholas Patrella – was your favorite?

Would have to say the lead, Joe. He was the most consistent throughout and easy enough to follow.

Did The White Flamingo inspire you to do anything?

No, which is a shame.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy dark, old-style detective stories with compelling, gruesome situations, this would be what I'd recommend. And if Nicholas is the narrator for it, you should feel that much more compelled to do so.

This book was gifted to me as a free sample by the author or narrator.

This book was not for me

Would you try another book from James A. Newman and/or Nicholas Patrella?

I would only listen to another of James A Newman's books only if it wasn't of a sexual nature. I do not like reading books that contain sexual content as in this book. Even when I'm reading a book with light sex scenes, I skip over those parts.

Has The White Flamingo turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, because each author brings their own content to the table.

Which scene was your favorite?

I did not complete listenining to this book due to the content.

What character would you cut from The White Flamingo?


Any additional comments?

I would definately listen to books narrated by Nicholas Patrella. He has the type of voice that relaxes and draws you into the story.
