This is the second book I've listened to by Sean Chercover and he has a great pace, real-to-life characters, and a flawed protagonist. The sarcasm is a hoot and the situations that Ray Dudgeon gets himself into make for great storytelling.
The plot was realistic - a PI gets himself into the middle of a mob war in Chicago. There is plenty of local flavor that keeps you in the city, while the characters float in and out with their own distinct personalities adding to the plot.
Barrett was an excellent voice for Dudgeon He has a world-weary sarcasm that comes out well on the audiobook. He also captures the other character's voices well so that you can easily track whose involved in the conversation (Chicago cops; uptight feds; Italian Business Men; street pimps; British nurses and Japanese forgers)
Yes, it was hard to break away from the story and get on with the day. However, it always made going for a drive that much more enjoyable
I look forward to more Dudgeon audiobooks
Yes, the reader had a nice cadence and did a great job with the regional accents.
The fortunetelling aspect and the touch-and-go relationship between Raylan and Dawn Navarro - very sexy.
nice cadence and did a great job with the regional accents.
No extreme reaction, but I really enjoy the TV series and I have a great mental picture of Givens making his way thru the Florida hoods and hoodlums.
You can judge a book by how long you want to stay in the car and keep listening - great story and I was sorry to see the story end.
