    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.

    What disappointed you about Ghostman?

    The lack of character development. The idea of someone living this strange life was interesting for awhile, but the main character was way too much of a cypher for this reader. There was nowhere near enough info or inner dialogue to explain why he is the way he is, so he came off as just another creepy criminal. The only humanity I attributed to him came from Weber's reading, which kept me going for some time. Ultimately realized I didn't care enough to finish and returned it.


    Has Ghostman turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I expect more from the genre.


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

    Likeability, warmth. I love the sound of his voice and his interpretation of the books he reads for Audible. Really, I only chose this book to begin with because Jake Weber was reading it, having just heard his mesmerizing work on "Night Film." Hope to hear more from him with better material.
