If the writer had a better knowledge of firearms, I would have thought more of the story was believable. If you are anything of a "gun person," please skip it. It's been said that the devil is in the details, and the devil certainly got all of these...wrong.
The Ghostman. He's the perfect anti-hero.
The story and the narration are exceptional. This is what a crime novel/mystery is supposed to be like.I can't wait for Roger Hobbs next one!
I enjoyed Ghost Man very much. It is always fun when you get to root for the bad guy...well, the least bad of the bad guys anyway. The time went along quick and I was sorry for the book to end. This is one where I would definitely like to see the main character again in future books.
This is a fun book, replete with all the details that make you think you understand the criminal enterprise along with a handful of classic/cliched (take your pick) personality types. But this is the single best reader I have had the pleasure of listening to. He voices characters seamlessly and effortlessly -- and that is not a style of reading I particulatly enjoy, so understand that this is the highest praise possible. I am dismayed to learn that audible has no other books read by him -- I was prepared to buy anything and everything he has read.
Did not read print version
Interesting concept - not your run of the mill story.
Well worth it for a change of pace.
A unique and interesting character (the Ghost Man) escorts you into the world of high profile bank robbery. A great match of voice and character personality.
It's hard to believe this is the debut novel of a 24-year-old! The ultimate novel for me is one I forget about the time on a treadmill or elliptical at the gym - and three days worth of workouts could have easily been one, had I been willing to spend an entire day at the gym. I'm so hoping that the Ghostman becomes a recurring character in an entire series of novels. And the narration by Jake Webber is spot on. Well done, Roger Hobbs.
The way its written/read
Its so interesting that it keeps you going.
The wolf/ghost scene
Can't wait for new book from this author
No I would not re-listen only because I only listen once. But if I had to pick one why not this one
Where Our hero played Russian Roulette with the Wolf.
The story was really three stories in one. The Hero Jack had his rules to live by and sometimes let them slide a bit. The Atlantic City robbery and it's unfolding was well constructed, especially Jacks several times escaping his own end and the backdrop story of a foreign bank job gone bad with it's relationships all kept me in the book.
If the author's next book would use the same main character and narrator I for one would snap it up.
