    New York is sweltering in the summer heat, and Harlem is close to the boiling point. To Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, at times it seems as if the whole world has gone mad. Trying, as always, to keep some kind of peace - their legendary nickel-plated Colts very much in evidence - Coffin Ed and Grave Digger find themselves pursuing two completely different cases through a maze of knifings, beatings, and riots that threatens to tear Harlem apart.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The writer kept jumping all over the place. It was very hard to follow.


    What could Chester Himes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Too many interludes and not enough follow through. I listened to this book twice. I'm not sure why there were so many random events with no real connection to the end story. It was like listening to a person who is trying to tell me a story but has difficulty staying on topic and finishing a complete thought. Mr Himes, please make sure you bring the story full circle. I'm left wandering how most of the interludes related.


    Have you listened to any of Dion Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I LOVE Dion Graham! I purchased majority of Mr. Himes books because Dion narrated them. When it comes to fictional reading Dion is one of the best. I can't wait unti his next read.


    What character would you cut from Blind Man with a Pistol?

    The old preacher and his wives...what was that about.The murder of the old pimp and wife incident...no closure on that one either.The woman receiving the tv...not sure why he mention this either.. Who killed the white guy?....Any character he added that didn't really have any closure to. I'm just frustrated and disappointed by this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Too many interludes and not enough follow through. I listen to this book twice. I'm not sure why there were so many random events with no real connection to the storyline. It was like listening to a person who is trying to tell mea story but has difficulty staying on topic and finishing a complete thought.
