Block writes with that subtle flow of Agatha Christie, like that ride at Disney that’s smooth and lovely… and then WOW, you go screaming around a turn at break-neck speed! And another, and another! You know who did it, yet you’re whipping your head around to see what will happen next! Tremendous character development for a piece of this length! Awesome debut, flawless narration! Beautiful job, Inspector Jack!
Excellent story to start off the podcast – Block puts in twists aplenty with just the right touches of humor. The reading was amazing and captivating!
…besides, I love the characters of Keller and Dot.
Good story and well read. One thing I’d have liked to hear would have been a bit more about Block and some pointers on the rest of his work. If I wanted to read more about those characters then were should I look and so on.
Loved it! Great story to start things off with. Keller reminds me a bit of Spenser (detective in Robert B. Parker novels), a tough guy but with his own consistent moral code. Great reading. Looking forward to more.
This is a little off-topic, but I wasn’t sure where to actually ask it. Is there an actual show schedule posted anywhere, to tell people what shows come out what days? I know TtT comes out Fridays, but I’m not sure about the others. If there’s going to be a new show coming out from each of the 4 in the District of Wonders, maybe the DoW website could have some kind of posting spelling that out?
That’s a good idea Rob about when shows come out. We are working on a number of things – one is a mega feed to subscribe to them all. But, I’ll mention your idea to Josh. As it stands Monday – Crime City Central, Tuesday Protecting Project Pulp, Wednesdays StarShipSofa and Fridays for Tales To Terrify.
Cracking start to the Podcast. Great story and a great reading.
This is the first Keller story I’ve heard and it’s great to jump in to a character that has a lot of back story one can only guess at. I had to stop myself part way and remember he’s a cold blooded killer who shoots men, women and dogs.
