Retired from a sales and marketing career. I take a lot of long walks while listening to audible books, mainly mysteries and thrillers.

    (309)

    When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry, the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who's occasionally called Jack. While it's doubtful that anyone knows his actual name or anything at all about his true identity, or even if he's still alive, he's in his mid-30s and lives completely off the grid, a criminal's criminal who does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with.

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

    Top 10 great narration and the story was close to perfection


    What other book might you compare Ghostman to and why?

    Some of Adrian McKinty's books


    What does Jake Weber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think he got into the character very well and his variation of different accents was excellent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best audio stories I have listen to in a couple of years.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    What made the experience of listening to 14 the most enjoyable?

    I took a gamble on this book. It is 180 degrees from my usual purchases. BUT.. Ray Porters reading of the book hooked me. The story is actually very good with characters you can identify with. I walk while listening and ended up doing 6-7 miles every time I put the earphones on. This story is fun and interesting. I will be checking out Peter Clines other offerings along with Ray Porter's readings.

    Adrian McKinty was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. He studied politics and philosophy at Oxford before moving to America in the early 1990s. Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction.

    Story

    There are two writers that I always anxiously await and purchase any work they put out. One is James Lee Burke and the other is Adrian McKinty.
    The Cold Cold Ground is one of McKinty's best. Gerard Doyle's narration is perfect. They just keep getting better with each story. I give all of Adrian's work 5 stars along with Doyle's delivery.
    If you haven't read "Falling Glass" you are missing out on another great listen.
    Adrian has a blog that is a fun and educational read also, check it out..
