    With novels like Mystic River and Shutter Island, Dennis Lehane has dramatically altered the landscape of the crime thriller—while boldly overstepping the boundaries that have long separated mystery from literature. Now two of his sensational early novels have been combined in a single volume—two gritty and mesmerizing masterworks of suspense featuring the private eye duo of Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro.

    What did you love best about A Drink Before the War?

    The narrator and the story. You get to know the characters, and the protagonists are likeable even if a bit flawed due to the calamities of life -> much of the underlying theme of the book is about the way things are and how they effect us. Great suspense and story.


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

    Yes. Lost of twists and turns. And not a bit of


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

    Not yet.


    Any additional comments?

    My negatives were that it preached a bit much about the unfairness of racism. The points were well made - just overdone and a little out of context. This didn't get in the way of my enjoyment too much.

    A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

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

    I read everything these guys right as soon as it comes out. But I especially love any story with Eli Glinn (sp?). He's a cunning and genius engineer who can build and plot any endeavor. With this second in the series of Gideon thrillers, the character is taking shape. I liked this better than the first and can't wait for the next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character of Gideon is developed more fully. What drives him. What distracts him. He is a tragic character in that he has a fatal condition that could kill him within a year, but something tells me he will outlive this dire prediction.


    What does David W. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A sense of drama and excitement.


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

    I did laugh in spots.
