Until he tangles with a man who plays by totally different rules.
Dante Orsino has been raised in the old ways of honor, loyalty and respect of the business. His role as mafia underboss is more than just a job. It also makes him an heir to one of the biggest families in the Southern Territories.
When Carlos meets Dante and plays a silly game, their weekend tryst sparks a deadly cartel war.
For Dante there's no other life except - the life. And he wants Carlos in his. But in the New World, a gay man is a dead man. Can he find a way to keep everything he loves and stay alive?
In a new world gone mad, even the good guys are bad. Welcome to the World's End series.

For the first time, I almost returned an Audible book. The quality of the recording is awful. This is not a reflection on the narrator - he actually had a pleasant voice and I thought he did a good job. It was as if the audio was recorded inside a tin building. There were also 'movement' sounds (either hands touching the microphone or touching a table/desk) in the first thirty minutes or so which were so distracting from the story that I wasn't sure I could finishing listening. Thank goodness the story was decent because it kept me interested enough to keep going. Eventually the tapping/movement sounds went away; however, the tinny sound remained throughout the recording.
The plot was interesting, an alternate universe/sci-fi sort of story although not so different from our own world. Good sex/plot balance. The only 'con' would be that at times the pace of the story was really fast and details glossed over, making that section seem more of a first-draft than a finished scene. Otherwise, a decent story.
Love listening to great stories matched well to the right narrators.
This was an intresting good story
Great narration but really bad eco sounding narration.
It was annoying to listen to that very annoying eco.
The sci-fi/mafia genre is a first for me. I think it has promise. I was enjoying the story up until the end when the writer decided to go off the rails and write an ending which was both unsettling and anti-climactic. It was unsettling because the actions of the characters did not match their intelligence levels that had been built up during the story. It was anti-climactic, because the characters needed to explain their stupid actions after the fact.
I loved the ebook so it follows that I enjoy the audiobook. The narrator did a great job bringing Dante and Carlos to life
