Working a case is like living a life. You could be going along with your head down, pulling the plow as best you can, but then something happens and the world isn’t what you thought it was anymore. Suddenly, the way you see everything is different, as if the world has changed color, hiding things that were there before and revealing things you’d otherwise would not have seen.” ~ Robert Crais, L.A. Requiem
As I’ve begun my fourth Jack Taylor novel, I was captivated to find author Ken Bruen quoting from one of my all-time favorite novels. So, it doesn’t get any better than that. Luckily for me, Audible carries both unabridged audiobook versions available. Since narrator Gerry O’Brien has carried me through the first three, it’s hard to picture (or is it listen?) anyone else as Jack. The sample of Michael Deehy’s rendition is not bad, but compared to Gerry’s delivery it would have required a change that I wouldn’t have appreciated making.
