    One thought on “Croaker: Kill Me Again”

    1. Okay somehow I clicked on the audio Cassette for this book but I really read the paperback. Kill Me Again is a competently written police procedural. It ought to be since Paul Bishop is a 17 year veteran of the LAPD. The heroine is Fey Croaker, nicknamed the Frog Lady. This time around she is fighting politicians, bureacracy, internal affairs, and a man on parole for killing his wife. The parolee has been released after serving ten years for killing his wife-- but lo and behold, she just got kil [...]

    2. Fantastic! A gripping novel from start to finish. It was almost impossible to put down. Like all of the other Paul Bishop books I've read I ended up finishing it in the wee hours of the morning. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the Fey Croaker series.

    3. Had to give up and delete due to the amount of errors !!! Things like mere instead of there and die instead of the !! Pretty unforgiveable. I stuck with it but then all of a sudden there were hyphens added for no reason whatsoever such as be-hind or po-lice !!A pity as the story itself sounded very interesting. Mind you, the book's synopsis on said the original murder was 18 years ago but according to what I was reading it was 10 yearsSo if you can overlook too many errors go for itdly I can't [...]

    4. I have to say, I really enjoyed this book. This is my third book by Paul Bishop and I think each one is better than the last. The character development was very good; the main characters are likeable, believable and intelligent. Quite a few editing errors, but I rate this one 4.8 stars. I'll be reading more of these.

    5. I STRUGGLED READING THIS, IT WAS VERY WORDY & BORING AT SOMETIMES. MY BIGGEST PROBLEM WAS, I JUST DIDN'T LIKE THE MAIN CHARACTER FEY CROAKER. I DIDN'T LIKE ANTHING ABOUT HER PERSONALITY AT ALL, SHE WAS ANNOYING. I FIGUIRED OUT WHO THE KILLER WAS AND THE MURDER WEAPON WHEN THEY WERE INTRODUCED ONTO THE STORY. (yay me!) I WASN'T IMPRESSED. ;<

    6. Took one star away due to the poor editing. I don't know how many times the word "die" was used instead of "the" a long with other wrong words used hit & miss.Otherwise it was an awesome mystery with a surprising ending who the bad guys were.Will read the rest of the series with hopes that they are proof read better

    7. Excellent book. Bishop has nailed that "cop voice" and this one was one very strong read from beginning to end. Bishop was an LAPD cop who knows the in's and out's of the city, and it comes through in this well-written novel. I would recommend this book as well as anything else he has written (even if I haven't read it yet).

    8. I enjoyed this book. It was a clever story. I thought I knew who the killer was a couple of times while reading. I like how everything was explained at the end. I want to read the other Croaker books in this series.

    9. Good detective/murder story.Convoluted but fun.Interesting but improbable plot. Characters fairly well drawn. would like to have seen the protagonist drop some of bravado and show a softer side once in awhile. A quick, enjoyable read overall.

    10. A pretty terrific story line with a strong principal character. More on Croaker's back story, please - and bring Colby back for more action!

    11. Fey is a detective with a troubled past and a body who is a bit of a puzzle. Murder story with lots of twists and odd connections.

    12. Interestingthis book did keep my turning pages. I lost some sleep, cause it held my interest from the first page.
