    FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

    What disappointed you about Bombshell?

    The narration is so blasé. No personality at all.


    Would you recommend Bombshell to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not the Audio version


    How could the performance have been better?

    Use better Narrators. Get into character, change the voices a bit. It's really hard to tell who is talking since the male voice never changes from on male character to another. Same with the female voices, she is weak in all characters.

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    Like his father before him, Brian Holloway is a safe man. That is, his specialty is opening safes. Every job is a little mystery, and he has yet to encounter a lock he can't break or a box he can't crack. But the day Holloway gets called in to open a rare, antique safe in a famous author's library, his skills open a door that should have remained closed.

    Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or David W. Collins?

    Not a fan of the narration either. I thought it was a bit on the slow/somber side. I probably would lister to another one, Michael Connelly usually does good work. I love Harry Bosch


    What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly’s story?

    The story didn't grab me and then it was over without an ending.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by David W. Collins?

    Maybe.


    Did The Safe Man inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to listen to The Black Box, a Harry Bosch Story. I really need a good book after this non starter.
