Description

Set in Minnesota, Gone to Dust is the debut private-eye murder mystery from Emmy Award-winning Seinfeld writer Matt Goldman.

A brutal crime. The ultimate cover-up. How do you solve a murder with no useable evidence?

Private detective Nils Shapiro is focused on forgetting his ex-wife and keeping warm during another Minneapolis winter when a former colleague, neighboring Edina Police Detective Anders Ellegaard, calls with the impossible.

Suburban divorcée Maggie Somerville was found murdered in her bedroom, her body covered with the dust from hundreds of emptied vacuum cleaner bags, all potential DNA evidence obscured by the calculating killer.

Digging into Maggie's cell-phone records, Nils finds that the most frequently called number belongs to a mysterious young woman whose true identity could shatter the Somerville family - but could she be guilty of murder?

After the FBI demands that Nils drop the case, Nils and Ellegaard are forced to take their investigation underground, where the case grows as murky as the contents of the vacuum cleaner bags. Is this a strange case of domestic violence or something with far-reaching, sinister implications?

'Decent' Debut. Weird Pacing

Matt Goldman's Minnesota PI Nils Shapiro is called in by the local police to help solve a troubling murder complicated by a perpetrator who understands how to spoof forensics. The mystery is adequately captivating, the characters are reasonably interesting, and dialogue is realistic. Goldman writes with a little too much sardonic wit, but with a creditable vocabulary and commendable prose.
My issue with the story is that the investigation proceeds in fits & starts, the twists and Red Herrings drop almost randomly, and there are oddly-timed stretches of the book where virtually *nothing* happens except for flirting and sex (although Goldman is pretty good at writing that stuff).
Regardless, it's hard to get into a rhythm with this book.

I must say the performance from MacLeod Andrews improves the quality of this recording: His diction, timbre, cadence, and voice-acting are remarkable. The best aspect of the narration, however, is the tone. The book is written in First-Person, and Andrews finds the perfect balance between serious and sarcastic in his interpretation of Nils Shapiro's voice-over.
This is the best reading exhibition I have yet heard from Andrews. Blackstone Audio Inc. cast this project beautifully.

This audiobook rates 7 stars out of 10 (it's distinctly average, but gets extra points for great production standards). Audible offered this book for free as part of the 'Plus' initiative and I'm generally happy that I downloaded it.. 'Gone To Dust' was a fine way to spend a couple of cold afternoons.
I wouldn't spend a Credit on it, but if you're looking to make a long drive or a lonely night shift tolerable, this is a passable Private Dick novel.

Started off interesting

The book is well written and the first part is like a classic neo noir. So I really started to get interested. Then part way it takes a weird turn and gets a little political Without giving away too much it was a bit bizzare. Too bad it seemed really good in the beginning. I stopped reading part way through.

Well done!

Gone to Dust by Matt Goldman was a well-thought out story! The murderer had to have planned this for years to get that much vacuum dust to hide his or her identity. There were many characters in the story, but I didn't need a playbook because they were so well fleshed out that I always remembered who they were. Although, there was the odd moment of unnecessary description, such as that of Detective Ellegaard's daughters, that cluttered up the story. The narration by MacLeod Andrews was spot on! Beautifully done! I'm going on to Goldman's next novel, Broken Ice, Book 2 in the Nils Shapiro Series, with Andrews narrating again!

Just plain boring

The book begins with long tedious descriptive sections. There is nothing for the listener/reader to become invested in. I listened about 2 hours and gave up. The actor doing the reading was just fine.

Great discovery

I wish I could recall how this book made my to-read list, but I'm happy it did. It had a good balance of dry humor, diverse and interesting characters, and a few red herrings thrown in the mix. It's your typical PI story but it has a freshness to the approach that I appreciated. I would recommend it to anyone who either wants to explore this genre or those who have been looking for a new quirky PI to follow. Hoping this is a start to a new series.

Above Average

It was a refreshing change of pace to have the lead character not bogged downed with personality disorders that have become the norm. I am weary of the tired formula of fighting with bosses, unpleasant co workers, etc. Our private eye is a normal fellow, with normal issues. The mystery was well done, although I guessed the ending. Looking forward to another if this becomes a series.

This book was entertaining with great narration

I'm not sure if is truly a 5 star book - But I rounded up...


A big review isn't really necessary.. It was a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be, and the narration was very good, so I was happy that I chose to give it a shot. It was worth it for sure.

Dirty Murderous Tale!

Matt Goldman has written a great murder mystery. Famous for his writing on the TV show Seinfeld, Goldman's talent for mysteries shines. The theme of the book is mostly serious with some witty humor mixed-in. The characters are well developed and likable without being to perfect. The plot offers some unique ideas. I would definitely listen to more of these characters if Goldman turns this into a The narration is fantastic

The narration is fantastic and the recording is professional. Andrews is able to capture the characters with his wide range of voices, tone, pitch, inflection.

I'm glad I gave this read a listen, it's well worth a credit!!

Great Minneapolis mystery

Good detective story, with plausible twists and turns. The Minneapolis setting is well-detailed; set in winter, this was a good listen during our recent cold spells. I'd read more by this author.

Narration was excellent--the voices of the characters were distinct and pleasant to listen to. All the pronunciations were spot-on except for the emphasis on the wrong syllable in the name of one local city.

The only thing I did not like about the audio version was that there was something about the deepness of the reader's voice that made me have to turn the volume up very loud in order to make out the words--much higher than I usually have to when listening to audiobooks. Other than that, it was a great listen.

Minneapolis private investigator

Good narration, ok story. I didn't love any of the characters, and I thought the plot was a bit thin. But it was reasonably entertaining and a quick listen.

Excellent detective novel!

Gone to Dust is an excellent detective novel while McLeod Andrews' narration is even better than the book.
