Publisher's Summary

In this fourth mystery on Deep Creek Lake, Mac Faraday finds himself up to his eyeballs in mobsters and federal agents.

After an attempted hit ends badly with two of his men dead, mobster Tommy Cruze arrives in Spencer, Maryland, to personally supervise the execution of the witness responsible for putting him behind bars - Archie Monday!

Mac Faraday believes he has his work cut out for him in protecting his lady love from one of the most dangerous leaders in organized crime; but when bodies start dropping in his lakeshore resort town, things may be hotter than even he can handle.

What the Critics Say

"Carr is a very gifted novelist. Her mystery novels, both the Mac Faraday and Lovers in Crime Series, are phenomenal. Her ability to keep the reader guessing, as well as her plotlines that flow so effortlessly as they work up to the big reveal, always make her novels a fun endeavor, and I look forward to even more of her work as this year unfolds." (Shana Benedict, ABookVacation)

"All of Lauren Carr's mysteries are interesting and fun to read. Her characters are well-rounded and ring true, which brings a believability to the stories. Avid readers will be glad that new installments are on the way." (Edie Dykeman, BelleOnline, Mystery Reviewer)

"I must say, I truly enjoyed reading this book! I found myself waking up slightly early for work just to finish a couple chapters! Not only was this book captivating, I found myself laughing at Gnarly, the ever so lovable and rambunctious German Shepherd! I look forward to reading the next book by Lauren Carr!" (Debbie Hill, Miss Book Lovers)

    "Who done it? ...and why?"
    If you could sum up Blast from the Past in three words, what would they be?

    quick-paced, engaging, fun


    What other book might you compare Blast from the Past to and why?

    One specific book? That's tough! Blast From the Past follows in the great tradition of pulp page-turners. Their are hints of Patterson, Christie and Grafton


    Which character – as performed by Dan Lawson – was your favorite?

    Gnarly of course! For humans, I'd have to say Bogie.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Just when you thought you've outrun your past, you turn to find it standing in front of you!


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun summer listen. The characters were rich and engaging. The voice talent does not disappoint.

    "Very enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great audiobook for a road trip. I really enjoyed listening to the story unfold over a long drive this summer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The dynamic between Mac and his half-brother David is very compelling. I hope to see future development along this storyline.


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

    Dan's performance is excellent at bringing the characters to life while still keeping the narative grounded. The wide range of characters with different accents and distinct personalities helped me keep the story straight.
