Summary

A Calico Jack Walker/Tina Tamiko L.A.P.D. novel

It's 1977, and veteran L.A.P.D. cop Calico Jack Walker and his rookie partner Tina Tamiko are planning to make Calico's last shift on the job something special. But plans, as they do, never run smooth because Walker and Tamiko are good cops no matter what the cost - even if they're LA cops, in uniform, in their patrol car, on duty, and way out of their jurisdiction on the Las Vegas Strip. When a major crime is going down, good cops never hesitate....

Singing a Siren's Song

Anyone familiar with the classic Lethal Weapon films will immediately be able to identify with at least a rough idea of the targets Hot Pursuit is aiming at. Some humour, some slapstick, some larger than life characters and a little excitement to add some spice to the mix.

It's not a bad effort and Walker, the older grizzled cop and Tamiko his youthful ninja-like partner make for an interesting combination as Murtagh and Riggs did. Walker though is more like an older version of Riggs and there is no conservative Murtagh in this pair.

There are of course larger than life villains, obnoxious colleagues to pick fights with and the mandatory idiot boss out to bust their balls. Peter Borys does a very credible job narrating this very American production though I wouldn't recommend listening while driving as the sound effects employed include frequent police sirens in the background that will have you looking around wondering what's going on!

The story is of course ridiculous though given the author's credentials he possibly knows a thing or two that I don't about police work and the like. Whether these sirens call out to you or not depends on how in tune you get with the character chemistry and the humour. At first I really wasn't sure but I was chuckling along by the end and certainly wouldn't object to more of this developing series being released on Audible.

Enough already!

Unbelievably poor. Unconvincing characters, asinine story and narration that leaves one wondering what the last piece of dialogue actually meant.

Very fun book

I thought this was a very fun book. The story was exciting and the writing was excellent. I thought the sound effects in the audiobook really added to the story without being distracting.

I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next one.
