For the past 20 years I've followed Stephen White's Alan Gregory series - always interesting and well-written stories. Having read "Kill Me" as a hardcover when it was originally published about five years ago, I thought I'd like to revisit this very special thriller again as an audiobook and spent a credit on it.
Well, I think Dick Hill did a marvelous performance on the audio version of this very clever thriller. Just lean back and enjoy the ride - this is how all novels should be transferred to audio.
I read this book as a hardcover when it originally came out in 1995 and loved it. Now I had the pleasure of revisiting it in its audiobook version and was even more enthralled with it. As always with works by Nelson DeMill a well written novel, and a great reading performance by veteran DeMille narrator Scott Brick.
This is a timeless, classic story of a three-way love affair, a thrilling novel that has aged well over the years. When an Ex-Vietnam vet and recently unemployed Government specialist returns to his rural hometown in the Midwest to meet again with his long-lost love of 25 years ago his mission becomes to rescue her from her abusing husband, who happens to also be the almighty town's sheriff. It may be heavy on stereotyping here and there, but it is a thrill to listen to - a somewhat unsual Nelson DeMille novel, but why should they always follow the same formula? Don't miss it!
