Description

Margaret Maron's mysteries starring Judge Deborah Knott have built a loyal following since debuting with the Edgar Award-winning The Bootlegger's Daughter. The series' 18th entry finds Deborah and her husband, Deputy Sheriff Bryant, teaming up with Lt. Sigrid Herald to track down a killer on the loose in their small North Carolina town. But as the hunt for the culprit gets more intense, they uncover long-hidden secrets that cast their investigation in a whole new light.

It's A Turkey

I very much liked the early Deborah Knott books by Maron, but I won't be reading or listening to any more. There is a noticeable tiredness in this volume, and it lacks the sharp and witty characters and interactions of the first entries in the series. The information about turkey vultures at the beginning of each chapter seems contrived, and the story and action drag out, though this is not a long book at all.

C.J. Critt has a clear delivery, but she doesn't seem to be much interested in this half-hearted story either.

"The Bootlegger's Daughter" and some of the other early parts of this series are well worth trying, but don't waste your time with this one.

Interesting As Always

Where does The Buzzard Table rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very good. The author is known to me. My favorite book so far was a history, not a mystery. The Secret Biography of Ghengis Kahn.

What did you like best about this story?

I am familiar with the author, the characters and as always, I learn something from the history incorporated into the story.

Which character – as performed by C. J. Critt – was your favorite?

Reid, Judge Knott's cousin is always a bit elusive but interesting.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. It was her new relationship to her stepson.

Any additional comments?

I like the fairness of Judge Knott, her huge family and her kindness to her stepson.

On moral grounds?

If you could sum up The Buzzard Table in three words, what would they be?

connection between classic crime story and moral questions about Guantanamo

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Buzzard Table?

The culprit actually believes that CSI TV stories ans courtroom shows on TV reflect actual police procedure, caustic but true to life

Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

all Deborah Knott novels, I think she is just fine

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

No, but I didn't dawdle either, but that was what I wanted

Any additional comments?

A Good Mix

Margaret Maron's books appeal to me because they combine a strong sense of place, unique characters and a good mystery.

The story begins with scenes from the past. It quickly moves to present day. As the story unfolds the influence of the past is explained. Some of the fun of listening to the story is trying to figure out the connection.

This isn't my favorite Maron book, but I enjoyed it very much. Narrator C.J. Critt is excelant.

Deborah Knott is BACK!

Would you listen to The Buzzard Table again? Why?

Yes. It is as good as some of the earlier books in this excellent series. It was a good story, and I may have missed some details the first time around.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I read this series because I enjoy learning about Deborah Knott's extended family as much as the story lines. The plot was interesting, but not an "edge of seat" thriller.

Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

C. J. Critt is one of my favorites. I've been listening to her for many years. She's still at the top of her game.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I always laugh when listening to this series. And when the little kids gave their opinions on adoption - I found that moving. I love Mary Pat.

Any additional comments?

I don't know why so much time in the last book and this one was spent on the detective from NY. She seems color less, and I don't think her character adds anything to the story.

Not enjoyable

Would you try another book from Margaret Maron and/or C. J. Critt?

Boring, too many comments, about government issues, i.e. somalia and others.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Will not listen to anything by this author.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of C. J. Critt?

No body.. Fault was story.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, and anger.

Any additional comments?

I kept trying to listen to this, and kept putting it off. Finally listened and sorry i did.

Margaret Maron is one of my favorite authors. I

Any additional comments?

Margaret Maron is one of my favorite authors. I love her ability to say in a few words what some authors take pages to say. I eagerly anticipate the next in the Judge Deborah Knott mysteries and this one did not disappoint. A female realtor goes missing and we are expecting the worse. True to form, the body turns up, dumped in a rural area, and the search for the killer is on. Deborah's husband, Dwight, heads up the investigation. While all this is going on, we discover that Deborah's stepson Cal wants Deborah to adopt him so he can start calling her mom. A really great read, especially for those who like to follow along the chapters of Deborah's life.(less)

Another awesome book by MM

Love this book, as I do all the other Deborah Knott mysteries. This one brings something different to the table, but still keeps with the general themes and the family. Performance is as good as ever.

Judge Knott does not disappoint

What does C. J. Critt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think I could listen to almost anything narrated by C.J.Ctrit- even my husband's Sci-fi..

Any additional comments?

I have met Ms. Maron a couple of times. Her research is first-rate as are her tales. When she states a fact, I believe it.
