Fugitive

Charlie Marsh, a petty thief and con man, becomes a national hero when he rescues the warden of a state penitentiary during a prison riot, but it doesn't take long before he is wanted again, suspected of killing a United States congressman.

Audible Editor Reviews

Con man Charlie Marsh manages to parlay a prison incident in which he saved the warden's life into a book that generates a huge following. While on a book tour, Charlie has an affair with Congressman Arnold Pope, Jr.'s, wife. When Arnie ends up dead, Charlie flees to Batanga, Africa. Jonathan Davis uses his clear, low-pitched voice to depict the array of characters entangled in Charlie's life: Batangans, U.S. congressmen, New Yorkers, and a father-daughter team of lawyers. Davis is adept at providing unique, realistic voices, and his narration conveys all the story's suspense, drama, and emotions - not only in the courtroom but in the intrigue surrounding two dangerous people who want Charlie dead. Plot twists and a strong narration keep listeners engaged.

Publisher's Summary

Amanda Jaffe, the heroine of Wild Justice and Proof Positive, is back - in this twisting tale of international intrigue and murder that leads her deep into the past and into the crosshairs of a killer.

Charlie Marsh, a petty thief and con man, becomes a national hero when he rescues the warden of a state penitentiary during a prison riot, but it doesn't take long before he is wanted again, suspected of killing a United States congressman. After 12 years of living in the African nation of Batanga, at the mercy of Jean-Claude Baptiste, a sadistic, power-mad dictator, Charlie flees for home to face his murder charge, when Baptiste learns about Charlie's affair with the tyrant's favorite wife. But it's not just the state of Oregon that's got it in for the philandering con.

Criminal lawyer Amanda Jaffe has her work cut out for her. She must keep Charlie off death row, protect him from the head of Baptiste's deadly secret police, and prevent him from being caught by a shadowy killer who will stop at nothing to keep the truth about a decade-old crime buried forever.

    "Unlovable Characters"

    If this novel had been longer, I would have quit listening in the middle. The main character had no redeeming qualities. Everyone in the novel was stereotyped. Not worth listening, but once you buy it, you're stuck.

    "Liked it!"

    My husband and I both listened to this book and really enjoyed it. The pace of the story is fast and the unlovable central character is never-the-lessinteresting to follow. We be looking for other titles by this author.
