Summary

For the first time in years, things are going well for Long Beach homicide detective Danny Beckett. He's closing cases with his partner, Jennifer Tanaka, and keeping a spare suit at the condo of his girlfriend, Julia Rice. But Danny's peace is shattered when he's called to investigate an apparent suicide - one that quickly reveals itself to be murder.

Just as Danny begins to investigate, a bomb detonates in his car while it's parked in a mechanic's lot, sidelining him from both the murder case and the hunt for his own assassin. Placed in protective custody at the home of his partner, the headstrong investigator must resist the temptation to break protocol - and find the willpower to stop his own self-destructive behavior before it threatens his two most important relationships. But what happens when Danny must choose between following the rules and saving a life?

Latest entry Long Beach Homicide series a downer

I really enjoyed the first three installments of the Long Beach Homicide series by Tyler Dilts so I looked forward to the fourth and until now, latest book. I know Long Beach quite well and the series has a lot of local atmosphere. Unfortunately Come Twilight is not as strong as the first three books.

First: at about two thirds into the novel the plot, which isn't very interesting in the first place compared to the first three books, comes to a crashing halt when Danny Beckett goes into hospital and he does a lot of soul searching which goes on and on.

Second: unlike the other three instalments, this book is read by the author himself and to be honest, he is not very good at it. The books are written in the first person with a lot of interior monologue by Beckett and Dilts has the voice of a middle aged man, he narration in monotonous and he make a book that is already slow, sound even slower. Also weird pauses: "I know"......(long pause).....'he said.' Reading (or rather: performing) audio books is a profession in itself and I honestly don't know why authors insist they read their own books when there are so many professional people who do it much better. So for me this enjoyable series ended on a downer. I see Dilts has another stand alone book at Audible but since he also reads that one himself, I think I pass. A pity, because I think he is a good author.

An awesome book, and a great addition to a great series.

I was very excited to see a new book in this series and this one didn't disappoint. Not so sure Dilts is the right narrator but other than that I loved it.

So close to being five stars

I love Tyler Dilts's writing and have been looking forward to this book. The writing is excellent and I like the author's narration. It has an interesting storyline, if a little disjointed here and there. But having Danny miss the elephant in the living room? Really?

Another great story from Tyler Dilts

Would you listen to Come Twilight again? Why?

I probably would not. Tyler is a great author but not a good narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It is a toss up between Danny and Jen. They both bring unique perspective to the story, and Jen keeps Danny in line (sometimes)

Did Tyler Dilts do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He did a bad job. Without the he said he said it would be impossible to differ between characters.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

All of Tyler's books make me both laugh and cry. However his inability to give each character detracted from that..

Any additional comments?

Please continue the series, but please bring back either of the other narrators.

Very good police procedural / mystery

Somewhat convoluted, but well constructed story. Major characters are well-drawn as are some of the secondary characters. I'll be going back to read or listen to the first three in the series. The author does a nice job reading his own book.

Entertains

What makes a good book to me is an ability to connect with characters quickly so I'm invested in what happens to them. This book achieved that end and I very much enjoyed listening.

loved this series

I really enjoyed these books... being someone who deals with chronic pain I knew exactly what Danny was going through in trying to just make it through his day. I would love for this series to continue.

Not the same

I was disappointed in this one. It didn’t seem like the same person wrote this one the narrator was hard to listen to. All the characters were the same and his tone never changed. It was almost a sad person.

LOVE!<br />

I love this book, the rest of the books in the series, Tyler Dilts, and the fact that Mr. Dilts narrated it himself. I was sad to see it end, and hope there will be another installment soon!

Author narrates well

I think I know how difficult it is, and how much raw talent is needed to narrate a book, and I was thoroughly impressed with how well the author did in narrating this excellent detective story.

I almost always like when authors perform

their own work. and this was perfect.
The story is good; there are characters I like and characters I don't which implies good character d3velopment. looking forward to the next ....
