    A man and woman possessed of telekinetic powers. She is the doctor. He is the experiment. What comes between them is a terrifying secret history that could save them or destroy them.

    Overall

    I read one of the later Ghostwalker books. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the team of soldiers and their adventures. I thought this book would be interesting to listen to because it showed the way the Ghostwalkers got their unusual powers. WOW, was I mistaken! This should appear under the section labeled Sexual and Erotic books, Pulp Fiction or Romance Novels. To say the author was attempting to titillate the reader would be giving a pale description of the the exceedingly graphic love, no, let's say, SEX scenes. The story is horribly sacrificed to the ENDLESS, explicit, sex scenes. They're needlessly long and overly descriptive. This is supposed to be an adventure/mystery story, not something out of the Bunny Ranch Diaries. I've listened to hundreds and hundreds of Audible's books over the past years. This one not only left me cold, but angry, because of its blatant and overdone sexuality mucking up the story. There should be a warning put in for the explicit sexuality so that young readers aren't unknowingly subjected to it.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    "More Than Pleasant Surprise"
    Overall

    I bought this book and went on vacation with my wife, after transferring the book to disks to play in my car. Many carbound minutes passed in parking lots of restaurants, rest stops, and hotels waiting to hear a chapter's end.

    Every page was hilarious. Moore's "Hell Hounds" just killed me. And the narration matched to Moore's writing.

    I recommend A Dirty Job without exception.
