Mystery & Suspense • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Zany music sets the tone for this exclusive audio original by top crime writer Karin Slaughter. MARTIN MISUNDERSTOOD is the portrait of a loser, an avid fan of mysteries and mystery writers who is oblivious to murders happening nearby—until he becomes a prime suspect. Slaughter sketches larger-than-life characters using only a few ordinary, hilarious, and revealing details, and narrator Wayne Knight (Newman on "Seinfeld") gives each an energetic, gloomy, or appropriately over-the-top personality. Knight channels the 36-year-old crushingly unhappy Martin, who lives with his horror of a mother. He presents a man bossed by his underlings and taunted by his childhood friend, a man who has a turkey-wattle chin and "an unnatural talent for explicating actuarial data." A little mystery packed with lots of fun. S.J.H. 2009 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
