    There's a dead man in Miki St. John's vintage Pontiac GTO, and he has no idea how it got there. After Miki survives the tragic accident that killed his best friend and the other members of their band, Sinner's Gin, all he wants is to hide from the world in the refurbished warehouse he bought before their last tour. But when the man who sexually abused him as a boy is killed and his remains are dumped in Miki's car, Miki fears death isn't done with him yet.

    Story
    Where does Sinner's Gin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Sinner's Gin is among my favorites right up there with Cut & Run. The story is fabulous and Tristan James is a much better narrator than 99% of what I have listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sinner's Gin?

    Every time Miki and Kane are together.


    Which character – as performed by Tristan James – was your favorite?

    If I have to choose it would be Kane. I could listen to Tristan's voice in Kane's soft Irish brogue forever.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story made me laugh AND cry but that's what helps make it a good book for me.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Overall, I enjoyed most of this installment in the Brooklyn Sinner's Series but the narrator's portrayal of Syren was not to my liking. Sounding like Hanibal Lecter isn't sexy to me and it pulled me from the story. Syren is supposed to be sensual not creepy.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoyed seeing the MC's from the previous books books quite a bit. I found that there were many plot holes and "the big misunderstanding" in this book was annoying as hell.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renard Pasquale?

    I have enjoyed Renard Parsquale's narrations in all of the Brooklyn Sinner books, just not his voice of Syren. I would keep Renard and beg him to give Syren a new voice.
