The Nathan McBride series is great. The two main characters are fantastic and I hope to hear more and sooner! The action and is all paced perfectly and while the plots do not twist a whole lot they are good ones.
What I like about this series is the line between the "good guys" and "bad guys" is hazy at best. It is up to you to decide if the character's actions are proper or not and the logic used in the book can be stomach turning if you believe these types of things happen in real life.
The only real issue I have with the book is I'm not a big fan of Dick Hill. While I like him, his voice never seems to capture the characters in a way that I can really relate to them but don't let that review stop you from listening to a great book!
This is my first review.
As with other reviewers, I was saddened to learn there are no other books out by this author. If there were, I would have bought them all out and listened to every one of them.
The story itself is just filled with characters, interesting plot turns, unique ideas and Dean Koontz-like otherworldly imagery that may or may not be real.
This entire book makes you wonder how much the main character is experiencing or just imagining but that just makes it that much more intriguing.
Althoug this book does not wrap all the loose ends (which I think is on purpose), it is incredibly satisfying and am hoping to hear more stories of Dalton in the future.
Actually the best part of this audiobook is the voice of Firdous Bamji. The subjects in this book get incredibly dark, sometimes scary and definately gory. Bamji's wet, just-licked-my-lips-from-a-swig-of-scotch lips and deep voice lends to the dreamy and often very bloddy scenes. Once in a great while, you see a movie and say "the movie was actually better than the book". Here, I think the audiobook was better than the book because of Firdous.
