I just listened to Patrick Lawlor narrate, L.J. Seller's novel named "Wrongful Death". Which Audible/Amazon's computers have confused and mixed with reviews of Dan John Miller's read of Robert Dugoni's book entitled, "Wrongful Death". So this is a review of Seller's novel about a cop murdered outside of a homeless settlement. It's a police procedural that's just OK.
There are some interesting twists, but Seller's is interested in dramatizing alleged harassment of America's homeless by police. He's also very uncomfortable with social drinking as a gateway to alcoholism. Oh, and he's uncritical of the political correctness movement in general. Now each of these can make for interesting cultural tension and riveting plot while paying off the larger narrative.
Unfortunately Seller's narrative wags the dog of plot producing predictable results. And Patrick Lawlor's flat reading doesn't help much to add tension to the various (and not particularly interesting) sub plots designed to either develop unnecessary character depth or pad out what really is a short murder mystery..
OK, the book was a kind of elevator music while I did chores, and kept me listening until the end. But I wish I'd invested this credit more wisely.

I'm addicted to Jackson. loved this series. hopefully more are to come! A new fan of your work!
Jackson has a complicated family life and he does his best to juggle work and home but still feels guilty
In this book families take centre stage good and bad. Terrific series
Loved it as always. Hope we get to know what happens. Does Donna get charged. What happens to Kurt. How long are they sent down for? Poor Danny
