Publisher's Summary

I'm Cisco Suarez: necromancer, shadow charmer, black magic outlaw. Sounds kinda cool, doesn't it? It was, right until I woke up half dead in a dumpster.

Did I say half dead? Because I meant 100% dead. Full on. I don't do things halfway.

So here I am, alive for some reason, just another sunny day in Miami. It's a perfect paradise, except I'm into something bad. Wanted by police, drenched in the stink of dark magic, nether creatures coming out of the woodwork, and don't get me started on the Haitian voodoo gang. Trust me, it's all fun and games until there's a zombie pit bull on your tail.

I'm Cisco Suarez: necromancer, shadow charmer, black magic outlaw, and totally screwed.

    "Wow, so much good stuff packed into this!"

    Cisco Suarez wakes up in a dumster, having no idea how he got there. As he climbs out, he notices his hair is londer than usual, he has a lot more muscle than he remembers, some new tattoos, oh, and a car load of Haitian voodoo gangster's at the end of the alley saying that they killed him yesterday, but since it didn't take, hey, they'll be happy to repeat the job. That is the start of the wild series of adventures Cisco has, as he finds out he has been dead for 10 years, and everything he knew in the past has changed. His family was murdered, his friends are being targeted, and someone definitely wants him dead. Well, Cisco Suarez will have something to say about that. Using his magical skills and street smarts, Cisco will uncover a conspiracy much bigger than himself, but will he be able to deal with the much bigger fish in his pond? Get a copy and find out in the enjoyable conclusion. With a fast paced plot, snarky but endearing main character, and villains you can really loathe, this is a great new urban fantasy addition to any collection. As far as narration, this was the first time I had heard Neil Hellegars, but hopefully not the last, since he does a great job bringing out the snark in cisco while still keeping him likeable. Excellent job narrating. Any fan of Jim Butcher or Tim Marquitz's Demon Squad books will enjoy this book.

    I was given a copy of this book free of charge by the author in exchange for an honest review through Audiobookboom.

    "An Excellent Urban Fantasy"

    Dead man was an excellent Urban Fantasy novel, and it was a real pleasure listening to it. The action starts right in the beginning and the entire story is an exciting ride with a lot of twists and turns to keep you guessing. The main character has a real snarky, in your face attitude, but at the same time he seems like a dude that you’d want to grab a beer with. The narrator does an excellent job with this novel, and I was impressed by the number of different accents and voices he used for the characters. Plus, his voicing of Cisco was absolutely perfect. Having listened to book one and two, the Black Magic Outlaw series is off to a great starts and I hope to listen to the rest of Cisco’s adventures.

    This audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "INTERESTING, UNUSUAL AND ACTION PACKED, GOD START TO A NEW SERIES."

    I almost skipped this book but I was glad I did not. The protagonist was truly deep in trouble and was let down by friends whom he thought can be depend on. The narrator was good and it keeps on getting more and more interesting. I will be following this series.

    "Better as the story progresses"
    Would you listen to Dead Man again? Why?

    Yes. I'm sure I missed things.


    Any additional comments?

    It took a little bit. My enjoyment of the book increased as the story progressed. I'm intrigued and looking forward to the next book. No complaints with the narrator. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

    "Great start to a new series"

    Cisco Suarez is a recently back from the dead ... or is he. As one who dabbles in dark magic, Suarez doesn't have any idea where he has been for the past 10 years. Over the course of the story, he finds what has happened, who is to blame and comes up with a plan for the future. I can't wait to see what happens next for him.

    I recommend this book for those who enjoy a darker kind of mystery. There is some magic and voodoo in this book so this may not be for everyone. Neil Hellegers is a great narrator who brings out all the emotions necessary to tell this story!

    "Took me a bit to get invested"

    But by the end I was ready for the next one. Worth checking out for fans of Dresden or Alex Verus.

    Story
    "Not what I expected, and that's not a bad thing!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Dead Man is an easy recommendation to anyone who enjoys Urban Fantasy. In a genre that is often over run with very similar titles and content Finn has managed to find his own way and to my knowledge write something that is unique.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Enough information is given to you to keep you wondering, questioning and guessing at about the world, keeping you really engage. I have a feeling that after a few more books into this series it will have that comfortable old hat feel that novels of this type develop over time as you become more accustomed to the world really letting you understand the workings of its magic and lore.


    Which character – as performed by Neil Hellegers – was your favorite?

    Cisco without a doubt, although I really felt that he should have had a stronger accent when I first started listening. That said I ultimately found I was mistaken and he was just write. Sometimes it hard to see past your preconceived notions and expectations.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for something fresh and new in the Urban Fantasy genre the 'Black Magic Outlaw' series of books might be just what you've been looking for. And don't let the "Black Magic" aspect of it scare you off, magic in this book is much more shades of gray then good or evil, nothing so sinister as the Danial Faust novels for instance.

    "Can't Wait For The Next One!!!"

    Absolutely awesome story!! I love the intertwined mythos of the series and the humor of the main character melds the modern day and mystical lore into one.

    "Hidden Gem"

    Sometimes you have to listen to a bunch of poorly written and poorly narrated books until you find a hidden gem like this one. I can't wait till the next one comes out in the series. Both the author and narrator did an amazing job.
