Great writing and very entertaining. Very violent. Adrian McKinty is a very accomplished writer. I have listened to all of his books and loved them all. This was my least favorite McKinty book however I still enjoyed very much.
McKinty always writes beautifully and the narrator is excellent as usual. This book is darker than is typical; which makes it pretty darn dark .The protagonist is unsympathetic and the story is a bit predictable. If you want to read McKinty I'd recommend The Cold Cold Ground or Falling Glass.
sensational -- the depth of the characters and the ability to describe the altered state of mind is mindboggling. can't wait to read more by this author and hear more from this performer
I felt guilty that I cared about a drug addict loser. But the story compelled me and I didn't see the end coming.
Took me awhile before I could really follow and understand the Irish accent. Once I got used to it I almost didn't notice it. American characters suffered a bit, but not enough to warrant a bad review.
I was born in Denver and familiar with the city and surrounding areas. Most of the action there was accurate and believable. I love to be
Beautifully written DARK GRITTY mystery/thriller, fabulously narrated and ultimately satisfying. A bit less beauty/noir would have moved the story along faster, but whether that would have made it better or not is a fine line only individual taste can determine (I'm less a fan of literature than one of great stories and have consequently graded on that preference). I would think this book has enough of both to satisfy most. A first read (listen) for me by either the author or the narrator, I'll be looking for more audio books featuring them both.
I didn't like the story, some of the content is irresponsible and unnecessary. Wow, the lead is superman, can't be killed even when he is being fired at by 3 men with assault rifles. So farfetched it was not entertaining. The narrator is easy to listen to, but the story is junk.
The writing was great, so was the narration. The subject just wasn't there. I can't put my finger on it?
I like crafts, gardening, reading and camping.
I like Adrian McKinty, I read his other books but was put off of this one because the reviews were not so good for this one but I LIKED IT. I enjoyed the flawed hero that redeams himself. I was very interested in his descriptions of life under 'catch'. Gerard Doyle made this story even more enjoyable with his accents, I loved the black cab driver.
Adrian McKinty's follow-up to "Dead I May Well Be" is another wonderful read, literary and yet hard-boiled. Gerard Doyle, who did such a great job narrating McKinty's "Dead" trilogy does another bang-up job here. It's hard to imagine reading this one without his voice.
