Summary

Lights! Camera! Reed! That's right - Reed Ferguson, the intrepid hero of This Doesn't Happen in the Movies, is back. A mysterious death. A brother searching for the truth. A devious ex-wife. Real estate shenanigans. More danger for Reed than a film noir plot.

Great story and narration

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

Great story and narrator is clear and even changes voices.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Reed seems to be a gentleman and has some morals.

What about Johnny Peppers’s performance did you like?

Mr. Peppers is easy to listen to and does a great job changing voices for the characters. It gives them more personality.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was not an option for me to listen to in one sitting, but I could easily have done so because of the story and narrator.

Any additional comments?

Great story and a narrator that is easy on the ears.

Good Noir Mystery

A good noir plot Reed wanting a quiet weekend. Till a brother wants answers to who killed his brother. Seems poor as a church mouse, yet he brother had an expensive poster. There is comedy around with the .goofball brothers.With quirky neighbor, ads to the enjoyment of these.

I am hooked

I love the old film noir detective stories. It's great getting to read new stories in the same genre.

Fun film noir

Witty. Just the right splash of humor as Reed Ferguson try oily especially to emulate his favorite noir detectives. Clever plot twists reminding you of the original story.
