Publisher's Summary

Long Beach, California homicide detective Danny Beckett is pouring the weekend's first shot of vodka when the call comes in: Elizabeth Williams, a teacher at nearby Warren High School, has been brutally murdered in her classroom. When Danny arrives at the school, the blood-spattered crime scene turns even his veteran stomach. What could this young woman have done to make her the target of such a violent attack?

And what is the significance of the victim's left hand, taken by the killer as a grisly trophy? Beckett delves into the case with his usual tenacious cool, yet as he pieces together the facts, long-suppressed anguish from his own past rises up with stunning force. His hunt for the murderer soon morphs into a personal quest for atonement as he struggles to come to terms with the loss of his wife and family.

A King of Infinite Space is a riveting crime novel that serves as a memorable introduction for Danny Beckett to the ranks of fiction's favorite hardened detectives.

    Story
    "Danny and Jen are a likeable duo"

    This is the first of the Long Island Homicide series, which introduces us to Danny Beckett and his partner Jen. We get enough background on these characters to like them and want to hear more about them, along with an interesting police procedural. They're good cops with some believable issues, and no super human qualities, but manage to get their man in the end with good police work and keen intuition. Some reviews have said that it's too easy to figure out the murderer. Could be for some, but there's a long list of suspects thrown in to the mix, which leaves the reader wondering if they actually do have it right.
    What I liked the most about the story was the character development. Like Harry Bosch and Dave Robicheaux, they're not perfect but have sparked our interest enough, to keep us going back to hear more from them. Glad to see there's two more books after this one.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The narration is good. I didn't always feel inflections were appropriate, but they were not exaggerated. It was clear that he was prepared, not cold - passages had been read prior to recording so that when a reaction was described after the dialog, the reading matched. Most of all, his reading didn't detract from the story, which is really all I ask.

    "Good story, dry narration"

    I liked the story but the narrator was a bit dry. He never seemed to really change his voice except to express sadness. Otherwise, he always sounded tired.

    "A great listen"

    I don't listen to crime stories and thrillers half as much as I listen to mystery novels, and there is a reason for it: most often, I was disappointed by the crime stories I read the past couple of years or so, and now I'm wary.
    However, I was lucky, because I got a free copy of A king of Infinite Space from Punch Audio (in fact, I got to choose a few audio books, and Punch Audio generously provided me with the codes).

    A King of Infinite Space has everything I look for in a good crime story -- and more. In fact, I think the next audio book I'll buy will be the sequel if it is narrated by Alex Hyde-White who got himself a new fan with his rendition of Tyler Dilts' great crime story!
    The characters are likeable, they have their strengths as well as their weaknesses, and all the police work isn't as spectacular as you can often see on TV, but plain work: following tracks, questioning people, knocking on doors... suspecting the wrong people, but finally finding out who did it, but nothing really goes to plan. These police officers aren't invincible, and that makes them so convincing.
    I can recommend this story unreservedly.

    "Pretty damn good"

    I really enjoyed his book and it definitely full filled its purpose, and why I listen to audio books, prevent me from falling asleep behind the wheel .
    I have listened to many serial killer books, this one definitely one of the better ones.
