The Wolf Posse
Exciting story that moved along at a fast pace but there were times when the main character's melodramatic utterances seemed almost too heroic.
The performance was competent.
There already is a follow up book.
I love the Ray Donovan TV series but there is one scene in the show when the family is watching a crime drama on TV which stars one of Donovan's clients. In the scene, a priest holding a machine gun says in a grim tone, "Amen mutherfukker!" before firing away at the criminals. It is a very tongue in cheek moment in an otherwise serious dramatic series. That's kind of how I felt about Power Down. Although the book was compelling and held my attention, there were some moments when the main character, Dewey Andreas, seems almost super human and his breathy, "Dirty Harry" comments towards his adversaries, seems almost too melodramatic and rather tongue in cheek. "Amen mutherfukker!"
this is a great story with a great great performance and awesome characters characters i look forward to the next book
Hermann gets the details of this fictional story so right on in inevitability or plausibility that it is hard to stop listening to this book.
this book starts a little slow but picks up speed like a train, and doesn't slow down until the end. concept is original and the accuracy is great with the exception of a few technical embellishments (like the power of explosives) and technical errors only an operator would notice. much better than 90% of espionage thrill writers.
Power Down is much better then the five star rating afforded here.
I am anxious to get started on the next book in the series.
