    In an ancient tunnel underneath New York City a charnel house is discovered. Inside are 36 bodies all murdered and mutilated more than a century ago. While FBI agent Pendergast investigates the old crimes, identical killings start to terrorize the city. The nightmare has begun. Again.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's a good story especially if you like the Penderghast series.


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

    Good characters and the bad guy wasn't immediately obvious.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was horrible. This guy has an awful rhythm and cadence that almost made me quit listening.

    Larry Correia writes a great action adventure guy story. This is no exception. The characters have depth and the story is exciting. On top of that Bronson Pinchot is becoming my new favorite reader. He creates awesome characters with his voice and the range is outstanding.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Clinton says: "Not what I thought it was going to be."
    "One of the best readers ever."

    Bronson Pinchot gives a great performance and gives great voices to Larry Correia's characters. I really enjoy the Monster Hunter series and this has a similar flavor with some great new characters.

    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.

    Where does A Dirty Job rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my very favorite. I've probably listened to it half a dozen times.


    What other book might you compare A Dirty Job to and why?

    Lamb, another Christopher Moore book. They are some of those rare books that make you laugh out loud until you start to cry. The characters are full and rich and you begin to experience the story from their sick and twisted point of view.


    Which character – as performed by Fisher Stevens – was your favorite?

    Lilly


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Blessed are the Beta Males


    Any additional comments?

    If you like to laugh when you read. Pick up a Christopher Moore book. Any book.

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, but I would tell them to find the old Books on Tape version or read it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Travis McGee is a great hero. The series was written from the mid 60's to the mid '80s and the language and attitudes reflect the times but the stories have interesting characters and exciting plots.


    What aspect of Robert Petkoff’s performance would you have changed?

    Just didn't sound tough enough or laid back enough to be Travis. Little too nerdy for my tastes.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series and I'm glad to see it available again on audio. I just wish the reader lived up to the character.
