Audio: Crime Beat Las Vegas – London – Paris by AC Fuller @ACFullerAuthor @esuttonsmith @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks

Somehow, I thought with the title, The Crime Beat, I would be getting a true crime story. This is a 9 episode, Crime Beat. The genre is mystery / thriller and it is fiction.  The main characters are an unlikely duo.  Jane is a crime beat reporter who is a widow.  Rob is a former marine, cop and now tracking a serial killer conspiracy.

Jane and Rob meet near the first crime in the series, set in New York. Jane had written a story about Rob using too much force and got him in trouble. But Rob ends up having some key information which puts them on the track of the killers.  Between them, they utilize their specialized contacts to find the first killer.   But this is not the only killer, based on Rob’s information.

A shootout at the École d'économie de Paris brings Cole and Warren to the City of Love, where the theory they've hatched about the killings will be tested. And while Cole learns shocking new information about her husband's death, Warren's old demons rise to the surface.

In Paris, Warren and Cole have more problems with the investigation.  The authorities aren’t really helpful.  They are on the edge.  The good guys aren’t really helping them or protecting them.  The bad guys know who they are and want them out of the picture.  Jane writes another article about who the targets might be in the remaining cities. They think Tokyo is next but don’t know if they will be able to get there.

Cole learns more about her husband’s death.  Warren talks to his ex-wife.  Both of them are in a rough spot personally. Neither of them is handling their problems well.

I’ve enjoyed this narrator previously on a police procedural series and this is a similar genre.  Her male and female voices were comfortably appropriate.  I enjoyed listening at my usual 1.5x speed.

Listen to the clips:  4 Las Vegas   5 London   6 Paris
