The unit is called Dead Six. Their mission is to take the fight to the enemy and not get caught. Lorenzo, assassin and thief extraordinaire, is being blackmailed by the world's most vicious crime lord.

    "Bronson Pinchot narrating action books - WHO KNEW?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Well, I would to my friends who liked military/merc books with lots of blood and guns. LC's books are fun. I belong to a book club - all woman. I picked one of LC's other books and boy did they bitch! Then they had to eat their words once they read the book. This story is no different, the it's a great and fun read - well listen.


    What other book might you compare Dead Six to and why?

    MHI sans the cool monsters. Maybe The Expendables or The A- Team. Charters that are fun, interesting and a little broken.


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

    It wouldn't be Correia book without him. I have the biggest nerd crush on BP. I have listened to all of Correia's other books, (MHI series and Hard Magic) and I have been so impressed with his ability to make each character so REAL, even the females ones. Some times when men read a female character it can become distracting - not so with B.P.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laugh out loud so often I try not to listen in public. And I cry too and I talk to and yell at characters. Really B.P. makes these characters come alive.


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books - I can't believe they haven't been made into movies.

    I am a costume designer who listens to books at work. Isn't that a great job?! Discovered the concept way back when it was "books on tape", then cd, and now my iphone. the only down side is that I get upset when actors interupt my stories! Oops!

    Story
    "Surprised, though I shouldn't have been."
    If you could sum up Dead Six in three words, what would they be?

    Riveting. Satisfying. Transcending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both leads. They were remarkably human and tenacious.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the two trains (story lines) collide.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Stayed up too late a couple nights and got cranky at work when interrupted.


    Any additional comments?

    I was put off by the description, but since I love MHI and the Grimnoir, I checked out a couple of the other reviews and was convinced to give it a try. I bought three other books at the same time. Tried two of them and didn't make it ten minutes into either of them. I started Dead Six and was hooked two minutes in! I'm sorry, Larry. I should never have doubted you!

    Love a good book. I am usually reading one and listening to one in my car (not at the same time, of course). I like just about any fiction.

    Story
    "Doesn't Get Much Better!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Six to be better than the print version?

    There are some books that I would only get in the print version and some I prefer to get the audible version. With Larry Correia, I don't think it matters. The writing is so solid and the stories so strong that it makes no difference. I just want to get it. I will say that Bronson Pinchot does a great job with most of it and brings the characters to life.


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

    I am one of those people that listens to books while I run or do yard work. When I'm at the gym my mind will usually drift and then I start to look at how many miles I have left to go. That did not happen with this book. I stayed engrossed the entire time and the miles flew by it what seemed like minutes. I really enjoyed the story being told from two different main characters. It was a great way to build depth in the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to choose from.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a big fan of Larry Correia. I have read the print versions of the a couple of the Monster Hunters and also listened to the others. I have enjoyed them all but I found this to be the best one yet. I really enjoyed the two different main characters and how the entire story unfolds.The one thing that bothered me was the narrator's voice of Big Eddie. Fortunately, he does not speak for most of the book. I found him to be a great villain, I just did not like the voice that went with him. If you like great action, fantastic characters, and lots of guns, you will not be disappointed in this one!

    Story
    "Larry Correia should stick with Magic!"
    Would you try another book from Larry Correia and Mike Kupari and/or Bronson Pinchot?

    If Correia does another Grimnoir book I would jump at the chance. But this outing was boring and the character voices were at times annoying.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Correia and Mike Kupari again?

    Don't think so.


    What three words best describe Bronson Pinchot’s voice?

    Only need one word for Bronson Pinchot's voice...... AWESOME! But bad writing and poor characters can't help him on this outing.

    Story
    "Good merc/Bad Merc"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    To some friends yes, to the faint of heart probably not


    What other book might you compare Dead Six to and why?

    Perhaps along the line of some of David Baldacci's stuff with a little Jack Reacher thrown in. Tight bands of mercenaries vs. evil genius vs. tight band of misguided government agents.


    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    Everything. I have always enjoyed his readings but this one is especially creative and over the top (in a great way).


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

    Who can you trust?


    Any additional comments?

    A little spoiler alert. This is a complex story that is told from several point of view and takes a little while to understand the playing field. A lot of ground work gets layed out and it seems to be non stop action just for the sake of action, but develops into a great story.

    "Good book poor reader"

    I like the story and the pace. But the reader ruins some of the lines. Some characters are put on so much they sound mentally handicapped. These are supposed to be hard chargers not chuckleheads

    Story
    "Characters that are very hard to like"

    Having read other works by Larry Correia, I expected anti-government rhetoric, machismo, and detailed descriptions of weapons, but this book brought in a new element, and that was a group of protagonists so despicable that you wanted them to get killed as much as the bad guys. Having a hero that is tainted is not a new concept, but in this case, mercenaries with a history of murder, extortion, and war crimes made it hard to cheer on the main characters.

    The narration was also a bit odd. It took a while for me to understand the method being used by Mr. Pinochet. Over all though, I felt it could have been read at a faster pace.

    In summary, the book did entertain me and it wasn't a wasted credit. I would place this in the middle of the "to read" list if you enjoy Larry Correia's other works.

    "Too long!"

    It kept my attention but the book was way too long. It could have been half as long and still have been a good story. Bronson Pinchot was the reason I picked this book. Not very interested the next book.

    "If you like monster hunters, go ahead and try this"

    Not hunting monsters exactly, but it is an enjoyable series with many of the same elements as the MHI books
