Stocking a cargo ship with the finest scientists and engineers, he builds a flawless expedition. But from the first approach to the meteorite, people begin to die....

    Overall

    These authors certainly did their research! Prompted me to Google certain topics mentioned in book for more information because the items were fascinating: Roaring 60's in Southern Ocean; Panspermia Theory; South Georgia Islands; and some mechanical engineering.

    This book is extremely well written and Scott Brick does a wonderful job reading. The characters well developed with plot moving smoothly. It is the best AudioBook I have listened to.

    The story is about a billionaire, Palmer Lloyd, who hires a crew of scientists, engineers, and others to retrieve an extremely heavy object from an island off the southern tip of Chile. Lloyd has an oil tanker converted and disguised to sail to Chile to accomplish this task. The object is the scientific find of the 21st century and puts the entire crew who sail in peril...and more.

    When an elderly local woman is found poisoned, Sheriff Walt Longmire begins an investigation that soon has him ensnared in a deadly spider's web. From Craig Johnson, author of the acclaimed novel The Cold Dish, comes this enthralling Sheriff Longmire mystery. With a distinctive literary flair, Johnson leads us into the wide open space of Absaroka County, Wyoming.

    Story
    Would you listen to Death Without Company again? Why?

    Yes. Story characters very real and interesting. Mixture of humor and Indian (oops, Native American) beliefs entertaining and appealing. Only removed one star because I need to keep buying more books to listen to more of these wonderful stories.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Plot flowed very well. Mr. Johnson's ability to create exciting characters who are very different yet work well together I believe added to the plot.The story did not stall, my interest was strong throught the book. Actually I wished it had not ended. I read the first book in this series, The Cold Dish, and could not wait to hear more of the story, so I immediately bought Death Without Company. Neither story is a disappointment. Both are books you cannot set down, and yes, kept me on edge of seat waiting for...who did what?


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George Guidall is my favorite narrator (but others are good too). Mr. Guidall brings the characters alive. Characters voice remain the same in this second book from the first. What I especially enjoyed after a time was Mr. Guidal's slower speach used for the Sheriff and Bear. This seemed to exemplify the layed back nature of these folks, how they think and take their time, but initially this slow speech annoyed me. Later, use of the different cadence really added to the story, especially in dramatic exciting or humours spots. Don't know how Mr Guidall could have read some of the funnier parts without laughing...must have taken a number of takes to complete.


    Any additional comments?

    This series has now become my favorite. I highly recommend these 2 books (I have not read others yet). These stories have prompted me to do some research into Indian lore, customs, and beliefs. While others may not want to do this, these well written books have had a great impact on me. Besides wishing I was of Native American origin, I do want to visit Wyoming .Finally, the humor is this book is outstanding. I could not stop laughing when the hospital staff went to sheriff office. There is more humor, and sadness mixed with hope. A very real enjoyable book..."Yes, it is so , (Johnson, 2007)."
