    Earl Swagger is tough as hell. But even tough guys have their secrets. Plagued by the memory of his abusive father, apprehensive about his own impending parenthood, Earl is a decorated ex-Marine of absolute integrity — and overwhelming melancholy. Now he’s about to face his biggest, bloodiest challenge yet. It is the summer of 1946, organized crime’s garish golden age, when American justice seems to have gone to seed for good.

    Where does Hot Springs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a great book. Not the Best, definitely not the worst. Earl Swagger and DA are great characters.


    Which character – as performed by Eric G. Dove – was your favorite?

    Earl - D.A. - Owney Maddox
    It took me a little while to get used to Eric G Dove. It started out sounding very staccato, and matter of fact but after a while it fell into a good groove. The matter of fact story telling fit the character so it began to meld. In the end, i was wrapped up in the story and in the voice.

    Eric G Dove did a good job with the English Accent on Owney as well.

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    Any additional comments?

    I waited forever before i finally listened to this classic. Now i know why it is the fan favorite. i love really long audiobooks and this one doesn't dissapoint. My favorite part is that the first part of the story sounds like the climax for most books and The whole time i listened i was thinking, "I can't believe there is going to be 20+ more hours!"

    A Simply Fantastic listen. i would recommend it to everyone.
