What the Critics Say

"Undaunted is a sensual thriller envolving white supremicist, a serial killer, and the Marines all rolled up into a startling package that will leave you clinging to every word. Undaunted proves to me that Manchee is a master at story telling. He has a way of spinning a tale that leaves you breathless every time." (Myshelf.com)

    Story
    "Story was okay, but the writing is sophomoric."

    When I say sophomoric, I mean high school, not college. The dialogue is stilted, artificial, and trite. Even the narrative is awful. Stuff like this: "Deep down I had a feeling I wasn't going to like what she had to say." And this: "I wanted to ravish her body." A murder trial is central to the plot. I tried cases for 30 years. The defendant is represented by a lazy incompetent passed off as something better. The prosecutor ignores, apparently intentionally, obvious evidence that should materially affect his investigation. If this author has ever been in courtroom, I hope it was only as a spectator.

    "Couldn't put it down!"

    "Undaunted" is a real page-turner, or whatever the audio equivalent is. Manchee does a wonderful job of weaving a compelling story line. Escalona & Kafer are masterful in bringing the characters to life in just the way this listener would want - quickly I forgot I was listening to "narration" and was able to simply get lost in the story.
