Antique Assassin is a fast-paced, pause-resisting crime thriller of antique-collector-turned-assassin Dexter O'Kane.
Dexter O'Kane is a family man who becomes an assassin after the death of his wife and son, a failing business, and witnessing a murder that unravels his simple life. Recruiting best friend and business partner John Wood to be his partner in crime, Dexter is on the hunt for a serial killer who's wreaking havoc in the small blue collar town of LeClaire, Missouri.
Dexter must deal with the death of his family, a failing business, and find the killer before he attacks again. But, can he embrace the life of an assassin amidst his worst enemy, himself? Will Dexter get the killer or die trying?

Antique Assassins ranks about in the middle of the audiobooks I have heard. The narration was better than the story but still interesting.
The most memorable moments were the number of people killed and the lack of concern the main characters had with their loss....you know just another dead person!!
I have heard his performances with other books he narrated and have always liked his voice.
It was not a great book but not a bad book either.
I liked the auto book because it kept me entertained while I was driving. The story could have been a little stronger but I still would hear it again on another trip.
The most interesting aspect of the story was how these two antique dealers were never killed. They kept showing up just missing the serial killer.
Joshua Bennington made the average story more entertaining for me. I liked his different voices and gave the characters more personality.
I think it has already been made into a TV show with the body count.
I recommend this book but could not give it more than a three because of the writing. The reader helped the book quite a bite, but I still felt that I could only give it a three star.
The story line was around a couple of not too bright antique dealers who think they can capture a serial killer. The narrator gave the book a big shot in the arm.
The story line was around what I have seen on the Antique TV show but with a lot of violence. It has the potential for many books, but Ryan Bennett will need to improve the stories.
I liked Joshua Benningtons performance in this book and I have listened to other books by him. He is a good narrator and I will be looking for more of his work.
I have just finished listening to the three books Joshua Bennington did for John Dalglish in the Jason Strong series. They were very good!!
Over all not too bad but not great. Worth the listen just to hear Joshua Bennington.
A predicable story line but kept my attention with all the killings. I kept waiting for the killer to eliminate the two, not very smart antique dealers but they seemed to muddle through each killing with out any harm to them.
Good narrator, clear and gave the characters voice.
When the main character buries his wife and son
Entertaining book about two antique dealers trying to make a livening while dealing with a family serial killer.
Antiques, mystery, small town
I liked Mr. Benningtons performance, this is my thrid book I have heard read by him. I like his different voices and his reading style.
Antique dealers out of their element
I enjoyed the book. It was entertaining but slow in parts but over all I might hear it again.
