Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

The 9th Girl - progress: first chapter

The 9th Girl (Kovac and Liska #4) - Tami Hoag, David Colacci

"His customers for this New Year's Eve were a group of young attorneys and their dates, drunk on champagne and a couple of days freedom from 70 hour workweeks.His assignment for the evening was carting them from one party to the next until they all passed out or ended up in the hospital for alcohol poisoning. Sadly, the night was young by New Year's Eve standards. The booze was flowing, and if he had to listen to Maroon 5's Moves Like Jagger one more time, he was going to run this fucking bus into a ditch. Twenty percent gratuity included."

Now this is an audiobook for house painting by. I can count on Tami Hoag's books to be fast paced, interesting, and undemanding enough to follow along with only half of my attention. And good for an occasional laugh.
