The trail of blood that ensues brings them dangerously closer to Weiss's old nemesis, an expert gun-for-hire known only as Shadowman, and to a plan set to climax with an act of audacious violence and a murder that would be impossible for any killer but one....

I couldn't stop listening to this book. Andrew
Klavan is maybe the best story teller that I have
ever heard or read. You will want to listen to the
books in order: Dynamite Road then Shotgun Alley
then Damnation Street.
I knew nothing about this author, but took a chance based on the preview I listened to. I really enjoyed the characters, the suspense, and the fact that the characters all have their own faughts. I really enjoyed the author as narrator and I plan to listen to his follow up to this book next.
Dynamite Road would have been better if the small sliver of a plot had more to it.
I am now listening to Predictably Irrational.
I thought Klavan was a very good reader. He acted out the character's voices well and in a non-distracting way. He was among the best readers I've heard.
I think Dynamite Road had enough real meat to be a short story, which is a shame. The characters, though stereotypical, were fun. He created a huge build up to what was ultimately a wafer thin story.
I really enjoy Klavan's political writing and enjoyed Empire of Lies.
I have read other books by Andrew Klavan and they were written with non offensive gutter language, like this one. Would I read another of his books, no, I am not going to download one of his books only to find out I have to delete it because of the language
A book with a known author that has shown they can write about a subject without having to use language that is not acceptable for children and adults that do not which to hear.
Did not get but the first couple of pages before the language caused me to delete it
Should have a language rating for your ebooks so people that do care about not hearing gutter talk can keep from wasting their money. I know this will not be posted as this will go against your money over people's needs but I wanted to give my 2 cents.
Love Klavan. Loved this story. Well told by the author himself. I almost couldn't put down the iPhone. But, unfortunately I had to when the 3 year was in the room (language). Otherwise, great story, and well told. Looking forward to other audio books from Klavan.
The author's reading is excellent, and the suspense and story is engrossing. However there *are* phrases that don't start with the 'F'-bomb that can be used for character dialog. I felt like I'd spent the day listening to skid-row bums trading insults with ex-convicts.
