    "Hardcore Book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Arsonist to be better than the print version?

    I've never read the print version so I can't say. Unless the narration's terrible, I'll always prefer audio over print.


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think I have listened to R.C. Bray before and if I remember correctly he did a really good narrating the previous books I've heard and he did another good job with this book too. I especially liked the voice he gave the antagonist.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Ya, I guess there was but I'm not going to say what it was. Again, I don't like answering this part of the review because it gives part of the story away. Maybe you guys don't mind but it kinda bothers me to find out ahead of time important parts of the book before I've had a chance to hear it first. I don't know, maybe it's just me.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a brutal, hardcore and very well written suspense thriller that is very hard to put down. This book has one of the most sinister, f**ked up antagonists I've listen to in a long time. I liked this book a lot, it's too bad it wasn't longer. I've never heard of the Writer before(Victor Methos) but after hearing this book I'll be keeping tabs on his new book releases.

    ""Thrill lit""

    No great literary fiction here but OK as a fairly basic 'in genre' thriller. Pace is fast, protagonist is evil and the cop is good and a Mormon to boot! Cop gets the baddy and the girl in the end. The narrator is well selected for this role.

    There were many memorable moments it sucks to only pick one. I listened to the first chapter free and had to buy the book, I needed to know what would happen next
