Publisher's Summary

Retired DC Homicide detective Marty Singer is driving through Virginia when he sees a billboard by the side of the road with the picture of a man and a simple, stunning question:

J.D. HOPE WAS MURDERED ON MAY 6. DO YOU KNOW WHY?

To most, the message means nothing. But Marty stops the car, turns around, and rushes headlong into a deadly mix of drugs, lies, and double-crosses.

Because Marty's got his own history with the man on the sign... and he needs to find out who murdered J.D. Hope and why, if he wants to do one right thing.

Outstanding detective thriller; excellent series

One Right Thing is the 3rd novel in the Marty Singer series by Matthew Iden. Singer is a retired DC homicide detective living in Virginia. A man he sent to jail years ago and who has since been released is murdered and Singer is determined to find who killed him and why. One Right thing is a great story well told. Narration is stellar.

Excellent series!

Excellent mystery series with a great narrator. The first two were five star all the way. Interesting characters and story well told. Realistic but not too gruesome. I really cared about retired detective Marty Singer from the beginning. This third one was not quite as good but still worthwhile.

Great Story Telling, Well Read -- Captivating!

What made the experience of listening to One Right Thing the most enjoyable?

The voice characterisations: a well modulated and easy-on-the-ears voice of the narrator whose ability to change pitch and accent render the voices of the individuals easily believable.

What other book might you compare One Right Thing to and why?

James Patterson's books come to mind but Iden's stories (as read by Sherr) have more depth and a steadier pace without the short and sometimes frenetic stride.

Which scene was your favorite?

The discovery and exploration of the farm.

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

No! I need to get out of the car for a walk! Seven hours is a bit too much of a stretch! That is not to say the story's not captivating. Indeed it was but I find the only time to listen is on a drive (and I have a 45 minute to and from work that makes it easy). This book provided a fantastic alternative to the news or other local radio with its attendant advertising.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this, my my first audible crime novel, so much that I am actually in the process of buying another of Iden's in the series.

An easy listen

What made the experience of listening to One Right Thing the most enjoyable?

Not a gripping and intricately woven page turner, a relaxed somewhat predictable easy listen
